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.

I have been lucky enough to eat in some of the best restaurants in the world and Sabor is up there among them. Food, service and ambience was fantastic. Highly recommended.

We booked this restaurant some months ago and were looking forward to it having heard some great reviews and recommendations. It did not disappoint and we enjoyed every course with relish! The wine list was excellent and Tom and staff were very pleasant and attentive. We'll definitely be back and would have no hesitation recommending this restaurant to anybody.

If it's not on your bucket list, it should be ! I dined here for the first time last night with my husband. What a night and what an experience. Flawless is a word that springs to mind, the food, the service, the ambience. Tom and Marco and all the staff have nailed it. I'll be back…and I can't wait.

We haven't managed to get a table for a couple of years, so we were delighted to book a trip to Dublin well in advance and reserve a table. The restaurant has moved round the corner from its old location and is now bigger - 10 tables for 2. The food has definitely become more sophisticated over the years and... More

A great evening out is to me about 'the sum of the parts' and in almost all respects, this second visit to Sabor Brazil delivered. Having dined in the intimate setting of the restaurant's previous location, we arrived to the new location on Camden St having received a helpful text from the restaurant earlier that evening.
