Outside dining and good service

We were happy with the moqueca we had here and I think the outside tables are very attractive. We had good service but the restaurant was not very busy as we prefer to dine earlier than most people. We found all the restaurants in Brazil had enormous menus and everyone was serving the same food! I... read more

Sabor da Vila is one of my favourite restaurants in Praia do Forte. It is along the main shopping strip that runs right through the center of Praia do Forte. Serving up tasty dishes, my all time preferred meal was the moqueca. The staff are great - friendly & efficient, the restaurant is clean, airy and well run & the... More

The restaurant that we had intended to visit was closed, so came here by default, but very glad we did. The food was excellent, we had a griddled local cheese with honey between us to start followed by prawns in a ginger and garlic sauce served with wild rice and accompanied by a potent chilli sauce. Service was friendly and... More

From the large variety of Praia do Forte restaurants, we dined twice at Sabor da Vila and enjoyed all the food served (great lula a doré & Moqueqa). From the outside it looks not so promising, but the food, drinks, desert and the service were just great.

We went twice to Sabor da Vila after getting recommendations from locals here. We were not disappointed. First time we had grilled lobster, very good. Second time we had Moqueca and we tried one where we asked them to mix the vegetarian one (with lots of good vegetables) with the shrimp one, and that was really, really good. The shrimps... More

We had a seafood plate with lobster, squid, calamari, shrimp, all grilled and it was delicious! The restaurant is located right in the middle of the main street of Praia do forte, really easy to find!

A group of 5 came here after a local Wine bar owner (Newton) recommended the location. Dinner, over all was good and a bit better than the standard restaurants. Caipirinhas were delish and had fancy presentation. Which we loved since we were on vacay. But the standout meal was the Sea Food Moqueca that serves 2-3 and the Vegetarian Moqueca.... More

We have often visited this restaurant and enjoyed their Brazilian food. It is not expensive nor cheap but good quality for the money! The staff is friendly and support you well

For Aussies seeking some steam veggies this restaurant is for you. The service was nice and quick, they have steam vegetables with their steak dishes which is rare in Brasil. Restaurant is clean and tidy, outdoor seating on the main strip in Praia do Forte.

It`s the second time in Praia do Forte and after 6 years this place keeps the same excellent flavor and quality. Only the price is salty.
