Rio De Janeiro: Devassa

Rua Pruente da Moraies 416, Ipanema

Reviewed by: Panda from UK, review #3717

When: 2011

Friendly bar/restaurant with excellent own brand beers and good, simple food.

Devassa is a chain of 10 bar/restaurants in Rio, which brews its own beer and serves well priced and presented simple salads and grills. The Ipanema branch (I think it was the first) has a long open sided terrace with tables, as well as a large inner room. They brew five types of beer: Loura (a lager type) Sarara (Wheat), Ruiva (tropical - reminded me of the slightly sweetish Mild ale, that used to be a popular British brew) Negra ( dark and malty) and India (and India Pale Ale - IPA- type).

We ordered glasses of Loura and Ruiva – when they arrived, they were accompanied by tasting glasses of the other three. They were all very pleasant and went well with the food (the menu gives ‘matching’ suggestions). I had grilled chicken breast with what was described on the English menu as ‘salted legumes’, but which turned out to be a selection of delicious steamed vegetables ( a couple of which I could not identify!). My husband had a tasty Caesar salad with chicken, which came in a very large portion.

The bill came to 76 Reals (in April 2011) for food and drinks – recommended for a friendly, informal and fun atmosphere.
