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.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Tom, Marco, Lou and Daniel are a truly remarkable team. The food and service they provide is exemplary. The recent revisions to the tasting menu make the experience better than ever. If you want to experience the very best that Dublin has to offer, you must try Sabor Brazil.

“HHHHMMMM!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

I went to sabor recently with no expectations as i was invited along at the last minute and was expecting some bbq house of sorts.. but deary me.. The service is ten out of ten and the food would give mr Guilbaud a run for his money. The theme is based around a tasting menu where Brazilian dishes are served with an international inspired twist. Each course is married with a wine and in fairness it's all spot on. The service is the best Dublin has to offer. It's Intimate and very casual in that while it remains very professional you feel very much at ease. Its expensive but by no means is it over priced, this is value for money.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

No wonder that Sabor ranks number 1 and with a 5 star overall.

Quite simply an amazing experience.

Small, intimate & super friendly venue.

Food is an incredible multi course trip around Brazil including sushi (!) fillet steak & pastry.

We arrived 7.30 and stopped eating around midnight :)

Would highly recommend for that special night out.

“Very impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Went here based on tripadvisor reviews..... was not disappointed at all. The place itself only holds about 10-15 people at most which leave a very intimate and romantic setting. The staff were so friendly, professional and attentive. The staff alone would have you coming back.... You can really tell this is their passion.

Now to the food... cannot say this enough... every bit was just perfect. We had the 7 course tasting menu, When we were served sushi i did wonder how this could be 'a taste of Brazil' but all was explained with great care and enthusiasm. I would defo recommend coming here for a special occasion or if you just fancied a good treat!! Great place... hope to be back soon!
