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.

This is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Dublin. My husband and I loved the decor, the atmosphere, the service and above all the food which was fabulous. We spent a wonderful night here to celebrate our anniversary and we would highly recommend it to anyone!!

This was my second time to dine in Sabor Brazil (we dined early last year) and, as before, it did not disappoint. I really liked the service and formal setting - the staff were very attentive to what we needed and clearly very well trained. I also liked the fact that many of the staff were Brazilian and able to... More

Booked this as a present for my other half and it couldn't have been better. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The staff were amazing friendly and helpful without being over bearing. The food was amazing. Each course was better than the previous. The palette cleanser was a lovely touch. We both opted out of the... More

Service is 100% second to none. Atmosphere - very good. Surroundings - not my bag but clean and detailed. Quality - very good. Coffee burnt. Value - not worth it. I had the deal of 100 for two for tasting menu. Add a bottle of wine and water and it comes to 150. Plenty of other restaurants in dublin that... More

This has to be the most hyped restaurant I have visited. It took absolutely ages to get a table (many months) so was really expecting something wow. In the end - it was extremely clever and the food was good - not very good. What happens is that this is like a ritual that occurs each night and everyone gets... More

Massively mediocre food, lots of hype but very little flavour or delicacy. A million miles from the Michelin star pricing and Tripadvisor rating. The staff were excellent I must say, but apart from them this restaurant is far below the quality of most (all?) of the others in the Top 20. The review from 7/9/14 is spot on: "Fine, not... More

This without a shadow of a doubt the best restaurant I've dined at in Dublin. The 7 course tasting menu is excellent and the restaurant catered very well for my vegetarian fiancé. There is also a great selection of wine on the menu starting from €35. All the staff co-owner Tom were so friendly and very welcoming with a genuine... More

We went with very high expectations, and thought it really couldn't be as good as the reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. It was a brilliant night. Food amazing, wine amazing, and the staff were brilliant. Genuinely couldn't fault anything!
