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.

Tom & team, thank you again for giving us another fabulous dining experience... Top quality service & food to match! Great that place has ambience, but also smiles all the way. Doesn't take itself too seriously. See you all soon.

We booked a voucher deal as my wife and friend share a birthday. The restaurant don't normally take bookings for more than 2 (and I can understand why) but they let us have a table of 4 as we have two "landmark" birthdays in our group of 4. The service we received was second to none. From the moment we... More

Finally got a table here this week after waiting for a while but i must admit the weight was worth it. The food is excellent and the taught and preparation that went into each course is second to none in Dublin. The highlights for me where the caparino's (the pack a very hidden punch) and the street food parcels. The... More

My fiance and I recently went for dinner in this tiny little restaurant off Camden Street after purchasing a two for one offer on Living Social. It is clear that Sabor Brazil is a labour of love for its owners and it really feels special because of that. When we arrived we were greeted with a lovely glass of bubbly... More

We were curious to see why everybody are raving about this place so bought voucher for 2. And we were not dissapointed! Guys did a great job and look after us very well - they are treating their guests as an old friends, constantly refilling glases and making sure you are very welcome. All dishes came with a story.

We were given a groupon voucher as a present and we booked in for a thursday a few months away as it was so busy. It was worth the wait and we weren't treated differently because we had a voucher which was great. We arrived at 7pm and 10 courses and nearly 4 hours later we left after having the... More

Back in early Spring I decided to surprise himself with a birthday meal at Sabor Brazil. We had read so much about it, both here and on other forums and always wondered was it as amazing as it seemed. Short answer for those not willing to read on...yes. Long answer...service was impeccable. Always attentive, never over-bearing. Just perfect. Water glasses... More
