Description: Bringing summery barbecue flavours and a lively South American vibe to Altrincham, Sabor do Brasil is a vibrant restaurant, buffet and bar. Meats are slow-roasted on the searing charcoal grill, while crisp, crunchy salads and a range of tapas-style treats are served from the colourful Sabor do Brasil buffet. A cosy, rustic restaurant in an upmarket Manchester suburb, head to the lively bar for a host of chilled beers and exotic cocktail mixes.

“This is now Bem Brasil”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Very, very expensive for what it is! Service friendly and attentive but that's it!
Food buffet style with chaps coming to your table carving various meats! Drinks are very expensive too!
Listen in the centre if Manchester you can get away with these prices! It's a city centre and people expect it plus people go for the experience, theatre etc.
Though in Altrincham they will struggle with these prices and the buffet is average. More an all inclusive at a hotel in Turkey or something!
I don't think they can purely rely on footballers! But good luck to them.

“News Years Eve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Great restaurant with a fantastic vibe and amazing staff. The food is incredible, really truly spectacular. Not exactly cheap, but defiantly worth the price!

“Very very good - just be careful if you pay a deposit !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Not sure why this restaurant is still called Sabor do Brasil on here when it's now owned by Bem Brasil
Either way had a great evening here - Roy the manager and the team looked after us superbly and the meat was supreme
Just one blemish - when we made the reservation we were asked to make a deposit of £10 a head - which was not taken off the final bill as we left - £60 is still £60 - to be fair when we asked for the deposit back it was refunded immediately !

“great grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

This place has had a makeover and since early October has been the Bem Brasil instead of Sabor do Brasil.

I tried it at lunch time and found it good value at £13.95, compared with the more expensive dinner. The difference is that the number of different grills on offer is reduced to six, rather than the larger variety available in the evening. Whereas it would be nice to take a larger dinner at a slower pace, the cuts on offer for lunch were more than adequate.

There are cold and hot buffets; I arrived about 1.30 and both were looking a little "tired", drying out on top, and not particularly inviting. The cold salads were rather basic. The beef casserole was delicious.

For those not familiar with the format, the waiters come round to the tables with the grills on spits which they hold vertically and carve down onto your plate. Depending on how much and how fast or slow you want to eat, you soon get used to the quantity to take so that the food doesn't go cold, or you have a reasonable resting time before the next cut comes round.

The meat was excellent - succulent, tender and delicious. I particularly enjoyed the leg of lamb, and the two cuts of beef. The "rump steak" was lean and tender; the other "steak" which seemed like sirloin or something similar was particularly succulent and delicious, as were the chicken thighs.

The waiters were attentive and pleasant; drinks and the bill when requested arrived promptly.
One or two more imaginative salads, and perhaps a more frequent stir to freshen up the appearance of the buffet dishes would have given them an excellent rating.

“Hoped for more but then maybe that is Brasilian cuisine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The food wasn't bad, but it was like a Brasilian version of Subway... in that everything had roughly the same taste range. Nice ambience and reasonable choice of wine.
