Coming from Lima, Peru (where the gastronomy is unbeatable) and having visited numerous restaurants around the world, I can definitely say this is a hidden treasure in a town like Buzios! My family and I would have never expected to have such a delicious and unforgettable dinner here. When arriving, we were greeted so warmly by the chef (Elo) and... More

Delicious and lived up to the hype. Shrimp in banana sauce and lamb curry were divine. Very expensive, but worth it. Extremely friendly staff.

Great home style ristorante, with international foods and special service. Eli and Alexandre together with their team make the difference ...we ordered nhoque of carne seca and cavaquinha ravioli, both of them amazing. Very unique experience .... But I'm stil thinking about the bacalhau and shrimp Farinatta Bistro & Arte

Farinata is a bistrot at Heloisa's house. The place has an excellent service, with a good and with reasonable prices wine list and an excellent simple food. The pasta is home made with quality ingredients. The main courses have a high price but worth it. Reservations are mandatory. It is also a good place to go with friends.

Best food in Búzios - a fantastic restaurant - exquisite cuisine topped off with superb service! A well kept secret - this restaurant is hard to find (located close to Praia de Geribá), by reservations only! Never had better gnocchi. The "macaquito" - shrimp with banana dish - a mixture never tasted before is highly recommended. also have great wine... More

What a great place! Our last dinner in Brazil was made absolutely special in this secluded, special occasions restaurant. The food is just as original as is delicious. The wine list, though not cheap, is extensive and eclectic. The owner Eloise greeted us as though we were family and this level of service continued all the way through. The Osso... More

Experiencias sensoriais. Um novo conceito que marca a gastronomia. A reuniao de elementos que, juntos, tornam inesqueciveis os momentos da vida em torno da mesa. O ambiente, a recepcao e o bem estar proporcionado aos clientes se Completam com uma gastronomia extremamente elegante e harmonica. Segue a tradicao de do seu precursor que se originou em Brasilia, depois continuando em Buzios, quando o entao saudoso Chef, o Nelsinho do Quintal criou a proposta de atendimento exclusivo mediante reserva. Com seu falecimento precoce, Elo Ramos, sua irma que sempre o acompanhou, juntamente com Alexandre Ferreira, resolveram manter acesa essa tradicao de anos, e foram desafiados a criar o Farinatta, que reune a proposta bistro, loja de vinhos e galeria de artes. Elo Ramos assume o comando da cozinha, com a execucao dos pratos ja conhecidos elaborados por Nelsinho, e Complementa sua culinaria com as tradicionais massas frescas, com destaque para o carro-chefe, o delicioso nhoque da fortuna. Alexandre Ferreira, empreendedor por natureza, criou a galeria de Arte, fica responsavel pela selecao dos rotulos e pela estrategia do negocio. juntos, ensinam que o sucesso nao se encontra nos livros de receita, mas no amor e carinho que dedicam aos seus clientes de forma pessoalizada! Um brinde! Tim, tim!
