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.

Amazing food. Stylish interior. We had a fantastic dinner. Great value for money (even the wine bottle prices are rather cheap for Dubai). We are spoiled when it comes to fresh food, Coya will rank in between our favorites world wide.

After Trying Coya in Monaco, we just felt in love with the whole concept. When we prepared our trip to Dubaï, Coya was from the beginning in our plan!
From the first moment service was at its best; friendly, warm & professional. Now coming to food quality, Monaco was slightly above....more refined!
Monaco had also a better set up & atmosphere.
But generally we had a great time and would strongly recommend it!

I didn’t get to experience the restaurant. As I still wasn’t seated an hour after my reservation I chose to leave as I wasn’t getting any clear answer as to when my table would be ready and I found that many others were in the same situation.
Poor customer service and an almost arrogant attitude to the situation.

The tables at night are very close to each other so you don’t have any privacy at all

Apart from that , the level of music is very high even you can’t talk to each other ; it looks more like a night club other than a restaurant

I prefer the lunch atmosphere is more relax and quite

Wonderful restaurant. My favorite in Dubai. Great food and vibe and what really makes the experience top notch is the service. They’re kind and patient and not overbearing. Thanks Coya for reigning in my birthday on a good note!

It was all going well until after our third course of the five course tasting menu - our waiter disappeared! Had to wait 30 mins for our desserts and overran our two hour slot due to service delays. It was a shame as the food was great and the experience waned over the course of 2.5 hours.

Really nice place if you are looking for good vibes and friendly atmosphere. I had reserved for a very special occasion and the waiting staff made up for it, super helpful and professional. The only thing that I found a bit disappointing was the food, after hearing so much praise about Coya. It was good, don´t get me wrong, but not so much over the top for the money you pay. The anticucho meat was raw and hard to chew, and although the Peruvian waiter brought another complimentary, it had left a taste difficult to forget.

Great food but a terrible overall experience. The tables were too close to each other and the food was rushed out. It was expensive and we felt we were just being gouged quickly so they could ‘turn’ the table. Certainly not recommended.

Coya is by far the best restaurant in Dubai. Dishes are at the same time delicious, both spicy and tasty. Couldn’t have chosen a better place for my 25th birthday.
Service is flawless.
Thank you to all.

The only negative note is that on Thursday (which is w/end) I had too wait too much for my table even if I had a reservation.

When I made the reservation it was not evident I wasn’t given a table but bar seats. That should have been evident. It was a special occasion and we ended up having dinner sitting at two bar seats. Moreover, the lady attending us was not empathetic at all, even a bit cocky. I have gone to lunch and dinner several times to Coya and my experience was quite good. Due to last dinner’s attention, I doubt I’ll come back again
