It looks like zebrano to me, which is what the drawer fronts of this one of a pair of cabinets is made of. Unfinished zebrano is quite often uninspiring, but a polish really brings out the colourful character. Also the large built in unit is fronted with zebrano veneer and solid parts, but the final colour in this case is browner and less yellow than the drawer fronts.

But it could be what others have suggested, i.e., louro preto or bocote (aka cordia, light American), although I think those two are less likely candidates. Slainte.
