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.

We were really looking forward to dining here due to all the top reviews, unfortunately it didn't live up to the reviews. The best part of the tasting menu is the starter breads, they are delicious and a bit different. Other than that the prawn starter is like a prawn satay! The fillet steak which I expected to be amazing... More

We were given the gift of a voucher for Sabor Brazil and had a lovely night here. It really is a night and you are looking at 4-5 hours in the restaurant, its not the sort of meal you pop in and out of. It is a 7 course taster menu and each part is explained to you. Food was... More

Waited months for a table at this restaurant but it was well worth the wait ! We were warmly welcomed by the staff who were very knowledgeable and attentive throughout the evening . Once at our table we were given proseco & olives then a platter of 6 foods to cleanse our palette. 1st course was Parmesan rolls with 3... More

I visited here with my girlfriend having received a present of a voucher for a meal for two. There are just 7 tables for 2 in the restaurant. The room is pretty small so like a lot of people reference it is very intimate. Having the tasting menu is compulsory. We ate everything and certainly nothing was unpleasant. However only... More

I had the most amazing meal here tonight and I think it was one of the nicest meals I have ever had. The staff were lovely and very attentive. The atmosphere was very relaxed. Every course was a real treat.

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

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
