I hear that this excuse of a restaurant has closed, and not before it's time. We visited here last year with what can only be described as a complete scam. The owner / manager Tom had all the pompous peacocking of a narcissist but never...More

I'm not sure there's any point writing a review since it seems they've closed down, but we had an extremely disappointing experience here. They had moved premises and we had to walk up two flights of tatty stairs which smelled of toilets, to a windowless...More

This restaurant was a joke! I'm not surprised its closed down. I bought the tasting menu voucher on Groupon 2 years ago for €100 which was very good value, but it was ridiculously hard to make a booking. We rang several times and got no...More

Got a voucher at the end of January for their tasting menu as a gift. Then I booked a spot and paid a 50 euro deposit for this booking. I have just received a text saying they have ceased trading and I have no idea...More

First impression- excellence, notably the waiters and setting were wonderful. Unfortunately the cooking does not at all match their skill. Food however, is the main event and failed miserably. Don't be fooled by the web vouchers , this is "reasonable" food if 1/4 the cost...More

Loved the intimate surroundings but the tasting menu lacked the refinement we expected. We both are foodies but some of the flavour and texture combinations were downright odd. The staff were polite and attentive.

We booked a table for the 7 course tasting menu. The restaurant is tricky to find and appears like the entrance to an apartment from the outside with just a discreet sign indicating that this is indeed Sabor Brazil. However, on entry, the decor is...More

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.
