Peruvian
Coya Restaurant and Bar brings the spirit of South America to the heart of Dubai. With a modern Peruvian restaurant at the centre of Coya’s culture, chefs will entertain as food is prepared in one of three open kitchens, the Ceviche Bar (raw bar), La Parrilla (open charcoal grill) and the Cocina Central (central kitchen). An extensive Pisco Bar specializing in bespoke pisco infusions, specialist tequilas and rums, sits adjacent to the main dining room, where the sights and sounds of Coya come together to fill the senses with the essence of South American culture.

I was great overall but I had to keep calling for the servers .
Usually in other restaurants they come to check if we need something or not instead of calling them when there was not a lot of customers so there is no reason of being busy.

I’ve booked my preferred table many days in advance, yet I was given a table at the lounge since I requested a table in smoking area. They took me for a fool and sent me to the boring dull lounge instead of the main dining area! I was there for exactly 45 minutes then left and spent the rest of the night somewhere else where they appreciate their customers. The food was delicious to be honest but the service was poor. I asked the receptionist to explain what happened and who gets the priority of seating, and she said I had to book the earliest time which is 7 pm to get the table I want! Not going back for sure.

Everything was good and it a nice evening.
The view from the table on the Skyline was fantastic.

I really don’t care how popular Coya is anymore. To charge 800 dirhams for a serving of ceviche and 40 grams of cod with a glass of house wine is a complete rip off. There is no value for money and insinuating to customers that you can only have a table for two hours means you want to turn your tables over and make money. Ultimately Coya couldn’t care less about quality over cost. I’m never coming back. I would rather have a five star dinner with an entree, two mains, a dessert and sake at Zuma and be a repeat customer because quality comes above price.

Exceptional service from the moment you walk up to the entrance doors, food choice and taste was better than expected. Excellent atmosphere, not too loud and crowded yet had a fantastic vibe.

Although we book a “ table “ but they asked us to set at the food bar facing the kitchen and they said in your reservation you didn’t mention that you want a table !! Seriously!!!!!! When we refused to set there and told the manager we either get a proper table or we are leaving ! They said ok just wait few minutes to prepare your table :) didn’t like the reception service at all

The Food and Service were fantastic, and the noise level was perfect combination of ambient music and conversationally comfortable.
The seats were a bit too close together, however, and it was FAR too easy to feel crammed into the next tables' conversations (or be overheard.)

Coya is one of the few venues in dubai which keep service, quality and experience all combined in a higher level than other restaurants.
Matthiew and everyone we met during the evening always ensured that me and my husband had a great evening! I absolutely love coya!

COYA is consistently awesome when it comes to food and the surrounding experience. Although on the pricey side, the chain always delivers outstanding dishes and really good service quality.

We had an amazing meal (4-course Ifta meal) but we felt rushed! The waiter kept coming to collect dishes and bring in the next despite our request to give us a few minutes...we were done in 1hr 30min and left even though we had planned for a longer night....finished off our date elsewhere. Could have been amazing...

Went there on recommendation. Had a very nice evening with excellent food and very friendly and attentive service.
Having only a two hours slot available fells like a little pressure, especially if you want to eat calmly and not look on your watch until you have to leave. Not sure this would have happened as the place was not fully booked.

Celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday with the Tasting Menu. Delighted with the service of the staff and the sheer quantity of food that just kept on coming. Friends have also tried the Iftar set menu at 250pp, which they highly recommended.
