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.

“Top Notch”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

Undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in Dublin and top end for a restaurant anywhere in Europe. The food was superb. The service was professional but welcoming and the room had a romantic ambiance that makes it a wonderful place for an anniversary or a special occasion. Definitely worth the price in my opinion.

“Disappointed that they only offer one menu”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

My husband and I came to Sabor Brazil a couple of times. The last time was about a year ago. We had a fantastic evening and loved everything about this place. The food was great and the service perfect. We definitely thought of coming back but haven't since they changed their menu and only offer one 7 course tasting menu for 100 euros each.

For us, the pleasure of dining out is to try different dishes each time and to be able to share. We also feel that 200 Euros for 2 people, without wine, is a lot of money, especially if you can't even choose what you want to order. We had never come across a restaurant that only offers one menu and doesn't give the option to choose depending on your mood, budget and appetite.
It is a real shame as we really liked this little restaurant.

“Should Have a Michelin Star!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Long overdue but without doubt the best meal I have ever had.

Having eaten in L'ecrivain, Chapter One and The Locks, all of which have (had) Michelin Stars I am amazed that Sabor Brazil does not.

Tom the host is exceptional and makes the experience unique. Simply put he is Front of House Hospitality personified.The decor is warm and unique and the food is exceptional and carefully prepared. .

I simply can not recommend this place enough and wish the team there all the very best.

“Rare”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Like no where I've ever been, very quiet and romantic setting love how secluded it was... Tom is a top waiter and I really enjoyed his presentation on each course! The flavours in the food are unbelievable this restaurant is worth every penny and is a great night out especially for special occasions.

“Super Service & Good Food”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

As the title says, the service here is second to none. The waiters seem to go out of their way to make your evening a special one. The food is at times very very tasty (the prawn & salsa dish in particular) but some dishes were pretty plain and, dare I say it, boring (the pastry pouch filled with small bits of olives but mostly air, and the chicken with pollenta was disapointing too). Not the best dinner I've eaten in Dublin (Pichet & Chapter 1 I think are better) but Sabor Brazil is good nonetheless.
