We love Sabor de Vida and try to eat there at least once per month. They're my go to place for Picanha Stroganoff. My wife loves their Brazilian Cheese Balls (gluten free). The service and food are excellent! It's small and intimate. Suggest making reservations...More

The lunch special was a good value with a plate of food for under $10. Where else in Encinitas can you order a Guarana soft drink or have a side order of farofa? Not fast food so budget at least 20 minutes for the food...More

A casual cafe with great food. I tried some appetizers and a sandwich. The chicken in the sandwich was freshly broiled and plentiful, the fries fantastic. I don't know if this is authentic Brazilian food, but it was tasty and well-prepared. Friendly service.

The hubby and I have eaten here many times. We were a little wary at first bc of the strip mall location. However, I've actually come to appreciate the location. We can grab a quick and quality meal here without any fuss. Our favorite menu...More

Hole in the wall Brazilian. Went with a friend from Brazil on her recommendation. Good portion size, quick table service. Somehow just didn't light my gustatory fire. Dinner for three, appetizers, entrees and drinks was over $75.
