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.

Always a fabulous experience

Sabor Brazil has long been one of our favourite restaurants in Dublin and on our most recent visit, it was once again amazing. Tom, Guillaume and Alex were once again the perfect hosts and Marco made sure to look out for all our dietary requirements. Cannot wait until our next visit!!

I went to this restaurant purely on reading reviews and I was not disappointed - 5 star food and 5 star service, it is expensive but you get what you pay for!

The service is very nice and friendly, maybe too much. It is better for a waiter to go unnoticed and do the job very well. The story for the cheese board is too long. I recently ate at La Madia in Sicily and I don't remember the waiters at all. My experience was more comfortable this way. My friend went... More

The wine was almost 50% dearer than we would pay for in other restaurants but good. We would not rush back as the menue is a seven course taster menue and doesnt... More

Great service but first sitting was 7:30pm. After 7 courses it was 11pm and I was too full at that hour. The servings are small but very filling. Pricey.

This is the biggest treat you can have for a night out, amazing food, service and attention to detail is second to none. I was pregnant when dining here and when I walked in I was offered a cushion, after tat they had fruit cocktails for me and any course that wasn't suitable had a beautiful alternative, we felt truly...

went with my brother and some friends. My brother had been before and loved it so when a voucher came on line he purchased one and asked me to go. We went in November and it looks closed from the outside but when you walk in its a fantastic decorated little restaurant very cosy. The staff are just brilliant and... More
