Description: 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.

Hubby & I dined at Sabor Brazil last Friday night. This was our second visit. To be honest, since our last visit in April we were longing to return. Friday night was a celebration of a milestone birthday for me. As before we were very warmly welcomed by the lovely Alex. There was also a very sweet waitress, Anna. And,... More

Treated my dad to a special dinner in September. Dad is the kind of man who wouldn't know the difference between a fondant and fondu, but he really appreciates the story behind the food. They call it a dining 'experience' for a reason. Tom has the service team trained to perfection. I would really recommend Sabor to anyone with a... More

Best experience by far I have had in a restaurant! Tom and staff are very attentive and this only sets the bar higher for the food, but don't worry you will not be disappointed. Every crumb on the plate is perfectly cooked and presented. Tom will explain to you what you are eating and why it is on the menu.... More

We booked a Thursday evening with a groupon voucher for €100. Upon arrival Tom and his very capable and charming wait staff proceeded to lavish attention without being over bearing, from continually topping up our prosecco to providing a magazine when my partner or I left the table. Watching the procession of food arriving was delightful and Tom explained each... More

Having waited 6 months for our booking, we enjoyed one of the best and most interesting culinary experiences last night at Sabor Brazil. They have chosen a very risky strategy to ONLY offer a 7 course tasting menu for €100 a head. Luckily, we love this idea. Every course was a surprise and executed with precision. The food was excellent... More

My husband and I had a super meal in this beautiful restaurant on Saturday night. The food was out of this world, delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and fun. The explanation of each course was unique and really added something to the experience, you knew why you were eating what you were eating and i just loved this. We... More

Fourth visit in three years last night and it was the fastest moving four hours for a while. Since the first visit Tom has extended the restaurant from eight places of four pairs to more than twenty and has been joined by at least five wonderful front of house colleagues, all of whom I think are Brazilian or are excellently...

We went here the day after we visited L'Ecrivian - it's a gem, number one on this site for a very good reason - experience is above that of most Michelin Starred places I've visited (but not all). 100% recommended, truly dedicated and intelligent place.

Visited last Saturday week with my wife. Having booked in March and having to wait until August for a Saturday night sitting, expectations were high. The #1 ranking on tripadvisor also set the bar high! The food was lovingly prepared and presented but for me, few, if any, of the dishes, were at the level I was expecting given the... More
