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.

At €100 per person we were expecting something..... wonderful. Initially I was a bit Hmmmm after making my usual visit to sos the bathroom out before service. A bit of a letdown HOWEVER the service and the seven course menu did not disappoint. One waiter in particular (Irish Waiter) was fantastic. Initially we ordered a bottle of wine, then cancelled...

Such is the high level of service you get at Sabor Brazil, when I booked in February and was told that April was the soonest they could accomodate me, I made a casual remark that that was perfect as it was my friend's birthday then. I didn't think much more about it until we arrived at 6pm and I was... More

I had no clue what kind of experience having a dinner could be, before I had it in Sabor Brazil. I would give six stars if that would be possible. Staff were brilliant, they really treat you as a high class customer. Everyone were so friendly and made you feel very welcome. And how about food then, wow. I seriously... More

We dined here recently and had a wonderful experience. They staff, led by Tom, go out of their way to make you feel at home, explain the ingredients and provenance of the food in meticulous detail and this all results in the heightened enjoyment of what is then served. Superb is an overused word but it applies here. The wines,... More

My husband and I dined yesterday evening at Sabor Brazil. We had a Groupon voucher which effectively meant our meal was going to be half price. We have often found that restaurants and hotels treat customers using such vouchers as second class citizens. This is definitely not the case at Sabor Brazil We were the first diners to arrive yesterday... More

Sabor Brazil discreetly tucked away on Pleasant Street off Camden street. From the moment you enter the restaurant the service is fantastic. The staff went to such lengths as to give us change for the parking meter and didn't even charge us for it. The food was delicious, especially the cheese balls, steak and truffle dessert. The chef, Marco, even... More
