My husband and I arrived in Coogee, and wanting somewhere to eat having arrived later than planned was going to prove a challenge. My husband spotted Farinha, a lovely little Italian/Brazilian restaurant. We had to wait 15 minutes to be seated, but then the food just flowed, a mix of salads, pastas, pizzas and other dishes for us to try.... More

When I first went to Farinha, it was a 5 star experience, however I think the price has gone down and so has the quality. While still delicious and filling it misses the meatier dishes, to focus on more straight pasta and pizza. Just one slow cooked meat would make it fantastic as it gets a little carb heavy. Still...

This venue has wonderful decor, very friendly staff, and the food is fresh and hearty. Very reasonably priced for an "all you can eat". I recommend this place highly if you're looking for a relaxed and satisfying meal.

Really enjoyed the Farinha philosophy of dining. Not having to choose from a menu was great - and just having new dishes placed in front of you to either say yes or no to was fun. Food was delicious.

Awesome restaurant in just off Coogee beach. $35 pp and you get an all you can eat feast. The wait staff bring out each dish as it is cooked fresh in the kitchen. You can accept or wait for the next dish. Great for group dinners.

We had the all you can eat dinner here, with salad, pasta, and pizza being delivered intermittently on small plates that our party of three had to share - and it was fun for a while, but because each delivery was taking a while to arrive, we couldn't fully enjoy the meal. While it was a novel concept for us... More

A good place to have a Brazilian meal! Cheese bread is really good and açai juice as well. The one problem for me is the black coffee because it comes mixed with sugar.

The circling dishes are amazing, but it is too easy to fill up before you have had a chance to try everything. Highly recommend the fresh, hand made pastas -- saving room for dessert is nearly impossible.

This is a very special all you can eat place. I ate here twice while in Coogee for business. This place can handle groups but it's one bill. Very interesting, but not for everyone. Staff are incredibly friendly, good atmosphere and yummy food. Lots of different dishes keep coming out, one after another. So if one is not to your... More

The food was good. We have been here previously and the pastas used to be outstanding. This time they were a bit bland and boring. However the pizzas were great. They also used to serve really nice rocket salads not they are leaf salads which are not as nice. Really it's a great place for all you can eat... HOWEVER... More
