Brazil is the largest and most populous country in South America. Almost as if to complement its exciting geographical contrasts, from wetlands to tropical forest to beaches, it also boasts an incredible multi-ethnic mix, which is mirrored in its cuisine.The indigenous Tupi Indians had already mastered the art of preserving meats through smoking and drying by the time the Portuguese colonised Brazil in 1533. They had developed the use and processing of Corn (in particular Corn Porridge) as well as the use of many root vegetables such as sweet potato and manioc (also known as yucca or cassava ).Not only did the Portuguese bring with them their own culinary customs (heavily influenced by 300 years of Moorish occupation) but they also imported slaves from West Africa with their cooking traditions. The use of coconut milk, peppers and dende (palm oil) are amongst the many ideas introduced by the slaves, all of which are prevalent in Brazilian cooking.Many more immigrants followed later, including Western Europeans, peoples from the Middle East and Asia, but unlike the Portuguese and African traditions, their culinary contributions were absorbed rather than evolved.As with many other large countries, Brazilian cuisine has its regional differences, although staple ingredients throughout Brazil today include beans, rice and manioc meal. To the North (includes Amazonas, Rondônia and Pará), the diet is mainly fish, root vegetables and fruit as opposed to the Southeast where the use of corn, pork and beans is traditional. Our restaurant is based in a small baroque city of Ouro Preto (from Portuguese, Black Gold) is a city in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, a former colonial mining town located in the Serra do Espinhaço mountains and designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because of its outstanding Baroque architecture. A different and enjoyable option for a FINE DINING Brazilian Restaurant. A cozy atmosphere for pleasant moments with friends and partners. Excellent food and proud to show our diverse culinary dishes to europeans.

Came with high expectations from Dublin’s No1. Restaurant and we left extremely satisfied. Any business/company, irrespective of what industry you operate in, could learn a lot from Tom and his Staff. They are living breathing examples of outstanding customer service. Attentive, accommodating and helpful without over doing it. These guys are unbeatable in Dublin. Food was outstanding but be prepared... More

Sabor Brazil is a little gem, the atmosphere was first class & better than I could have ever expected. Been to many so called Michelin star restaurants in Dublin but nothing compares. Spent 6 wonderful hours in the hands of an amazing host, Tom, who could not do enough for us. Well worth a visit & can't recommend highly enough

First rate dining experience from beginning to end. Agree wholeheartedly with all the other reviews who wax lyrical about this place. Number 1 on TA for very good reasons. Thanks, Tom and team for a wonderful evening.

I'm really surprised Sabor Brazil has come in no 1. Yes the food is good but the wait for food took away from that. I will definetly not recommend a visit until you have 3 hours to spare

This was hands down the best dining experience I've ever had. The staff are world class, Tom is very informative and couldn't do enough for us throughout the whole night.
