A word from Coya Restaurant
Coya Restaurant and Bar brings the spirit of Latin America to the heart of London. 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 rum, sits adjacent to the main dining room, where the sights and sounds of Coya come together to fill the senses with the essence of Latin American culture.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Coya is located in the basement of a hotel building-type simar to those on Park Lane, so you would expect a great attention to service / details. The food has great Peruvian flavours (however not outstanding except for ceviches) but the experience is killed by the level of service: from meals serving without any explanations, dropped on table at different moments, and especially taken away even if you are not done. Some waiters seem to not have get the memo that an attitude is visible from everyone and service is a skill! Our waiter was just looking rude in the way he addresses to us. Dishes and drinks cleared up before we are done. disappointing from this type of restaurant and I would think twice before going again."

  • "Great service, delicious food. Loved the tuna ceviche and the Chilian seabass. Make sure to have the chocolate ganache dessert, probably the best dessert I've ever eaten. Have the £75 per head tasting menu and you'll get to try all of the restaurants most popular dishes."
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "Pretentious and rude. Told we could not order the set menu as it would take too long to serve and we only had a two hour time slot as they were very busy! There's plenty of restaurants in London where they do make you feel important. Stay away from this one."
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "Coya is a great place. We've been there 3 times already. The staff is try to park people starting from the not so nice tables but when you ask to sit in a good table they change it. Good place."

  • "Food was ok, service was really bad at the beginning to the point that they had to apologise. We didn't even get water for the first 30 mins. Quite pricey for what it is"
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "We arrived earlier than our noontime booking, and very pleasantly surprised with the quiet waiting area. Staff were very good with our little 5y.o diner and very accommodating with her requests. Outstanding food and an extremely palate pleasing dishes. The lunchtime "set" course selections had very good portions. Our little diner is usually a picky eater, yet asked for TWO helpings of the skewered chicken (Pollo Antichuchos). Outstanding choices are the Filetes Dorades (Seabream) Lubinos Clasico (Ceviche), Salmon Nikkei, Calamares Fritos con Ocopa (crispy fried squid with the marigold & mint dipping sauce very appetising! our 5 year old loved it, minus the sauce)"

  • "The moment you walk into the restaurant you are transported into some exotic south American location with dark blue wall and luxurious bars. We ordered a sea bream ceviche which was out of this world and a few skewers which were lovely. Portions are quite small so you would have to order 3 or 4 small dishes and two main dishes. We had dried potato with truffles hotpot which was wholesome and tasty. The whole meal was delicious and waiters are knowledgeable and polite. The meal was not cheap but you are not just paying for the food and it is Mayfair. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants something interesting and tasty in a beautiful surroundings."

  • "The food is good but I feel the service doesn't deserve a good reviews. I booked the restaurant because I was interested to try its tasting menu. When we started to order at 7pm, I was told it's too late to serve the tasting menu but it' s written on the menu that the tasting menu is available until 10pm! We ordered a couple of starters, mains, desert and wine from the normal menu. During the dining, we has a strong feeling being rushed - for a number of times, waiters attempted to take away the dishes even when it's just over half finished! Wine was poured to our glasses without asking. Finally, we were "asked" directly to "give them the table because they are too busy" when it's only 9.15pm and we didn't finish our wine. Never again!"

  • "We randomly chose the restaurant because it was near. it's one floor below ground but surprisingly get a lot of sunlight from the windows. The decor is smart and elegant. The food is just delicious. The baby calamares were cooked just right and seasoned delicately, it came with a Peruvian dipping sauce that is divine. The fish and fennel salad were beautiful, even the quinoa salad was perfect and moreish. The dessert was corn ice cream with pop corn which worked really well. Only odd thing is the food came in random order, my partner has had 2 course served for her and my starter hadn't arrived yet. Guess it would better if we shared everything."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "The service in the bar was not good, considering it was early and nearly empty it was not what you'd expect in a place of this standard with those prices! The rest of the staff were all great though. Food is too quality and delicious, on the expensive side but nothing disappointed. Will definitely return but without stopping for a drink first!"
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "We had an early dinner at Coya - it was our first experience with Peruvian food and we loved it. The staff were really friendly, extremely attentive and the food was served super quick. The food itself was full of fascinating flavours. We particularly liked the corn salad and the spicy beef fillet, although the ceviche was also lovely. The beef carpaccio was great too. We didn't get a chance to sample the anticucho and we will definitely return to try them."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "We did not know what to expect from a Peruvian restaurant. The Coya is a deceptively large restaurant. The decor is on the dark side but classy. All the staff are welcoming and helpful not just in the interest of the restaurant. It turned out that they would suggest a central sharing meal and we could try all the different dishes. The raw fish really stands out. The beef and cooked fish are both very well seasoned and the texture tender. The overall taste is that it has quite a bit of Japanese and Chinese origin. The ambience is fit for romance and business. Highly recommended. Will definitely go again."

  • "Perfect for a late night dining experience. A bit pricey though"

  • "Loved the ambiance! Staff v friendly and the food is really good. Cant wait it opens in Dubai."
    dined on 31/07/2014
  • "The service was lovely -our waitress explained the menu really well & drinks came quickly. The whole feel of the place is like an upmarket Hard Rock though. The seabass ceviche was overpowered by the red onion & chilli marinade. The yellowtail with radish & chilli was beautifully presented & the fish delicate but again you couldn't really taste the fish. The patas bravas were laughable - 8 slices of fried potato with what looked like tomato purée & mayonnaise on top. The fillet of beef was very good - best dish of the night. After £180 including 3 glasses of wine & two cocktails we were still hungry! Wouldn't rush back."
    dined on 28/07/2014
  • "Coya is a high end restaurant and the Sunday brunch offers an amazing experience at an affordable price. Flavours amazing, service excellent and guitarist/ singer providing entertainment was outstanding. My first time at Coya, will definitely return"
    dined on 27/07/2014
  • "Truly spectacular food, a real taste sensation. The signature menu is full to the brim with course after course of sumptuous food - we left bursting at the seams, they could probably do with taking off at least one course! Service was good, although we had about 12 different members of the team interact with us during our 2.5 hour visit!"
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "Food was very good but unfortunately the service was not."

  • "This was my second visit to Coya, however, this time I came for lunch. Service was excellent and food was even better. Such good cuisine, beautiful presentation and a lovely way to sample so many different dishes. One of my favourite restaurants in London without a doubt."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "Loved Coya!, great ambiance, scrumptious food and friendly and attentive service. Our waitress helped us with our order, she suggested the quinoa salad and we were delighted with her suggestion as it was delicious!. I would definitely go back there."
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "Had a wonderful Sunday brunch. The menu was just right, nice selection of seemingly unending stream of starters and sea bass of main course options was cooked to perfection. Excellent service and had a wonderful table and was sitting upstairs which was nice for Sunday brunch... will return."
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "Coya was recommended by a colleague and certainly didn't disappoint, great food well presented, excellent service. Restaurant was surprisingly quiet for a Friday lunchtime but a thoroughly enjoyable experience, wines can be very pricey so choose carefully!"
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Three of us had the £26.00 menu which was of a very high quality. As it was lunch-time we were offered and accepted the option to dine up-stairs in the "Club" area which was very comfortable. Service was friendly but professional and despite the text threat of a two hour table turn round we were there for over three hours without any pressure being exerted on us to vacate. Would definitely recommend and revisit."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Coya combines a truly gorgeous downstairs but light ambient and interesting setting with some truly fabulous food. Its a very extensive menu so not every dish is outstanding but many many are. The ceviche, tuna tartare and sea bass cazuela are unbelievable. Whatever you do, do it do it do it- order these dishes. Fresh, tasty, moorish, I may run out of superlatives. All in all, a must!"
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "One of the best restaurants in London. It's always consistent when it comes to their amazing food and impeccable service, and this is something you don't alwyas experience in most restaurants. Everything is really good, very refined and presentable. I honestly never get bored of Coya, there are always new things to try! My favorite main dish is the spicy beef fillet, with patatas bravas on the side, or the papa secca with truffle (potato with mushroom and truffle). As for the starters, corn salad, quinoa salad, they have a really good crab salad, amazing seviche, and good tuna. I always recommend it to my friends, who appreciate good food ofcourse :p"
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Food out of this world, delicate, inventive, tasty. Excellent service and super vibe"
    dined on 17/06/2014
  • "I only tried 2 savory dishes as I was dining alone, but both were amazing. I had the yellowfin tuna ceviche- it's so good it's one of those things that you crave later on. I want to try their ceviches just because this one was so good. I had the seabass hotpot which was recommended by the waiter. It was really good, but ideally I would have preferred to share with someone as the rice really fills you up. Best thing about the service was the friendliness and suggesting the best of the menu, which as a first-timer I appreciated. The decor was pretty and bright, even in the basement!"
    dined on 17/06/2014
  • "I have been before to Coya but first time through Open Table. Great food. Starters, mains and dessert were truly amazing. Coya definitely has the wow factor whether it's ambience, food or service you are looking for. Both times to Coya have had memorable experience"
    dined on 15/06/2014
  • "Went there for a business dinner. Had to go to the airport but the staff was very accomodating in taking us through the tasting menu. Probably some of the better fish I have ever had! Totally recommend the place"
    dined on 12/06/2014
  • "This was a business lunch. From the minute I walked in the attention and service were impeccable, friendly and available: no ever trying to catch a waiter's eye for something. The food was tasty, beautifully presented but not the size portions for someone who wants to walk out with an overloaded stomach. It was a warm summer's day in London. We sat in the member's lounge at street level with the large windows wide open. It was balmy, perfectly relaxing and a brilliant environment for a non-pressurised business lunch. It was expensive: in the 80 pound per head region with service charge and without alcohol."
    dined on 12/06/2014
  • "Amazing food, best I've been to in London! Left loving every single course and would definitely return. A little pricey- so a special occasion kind of dinner!"
    dined on 08/06/2014
  • "I've been a few times to Coya and not once has it disappointed. Food quality worthy of a Michelin star, the Ceviche tastes as fresh as if it had that second been brought out the ocean, the atmosphere is relaxing and the staff do everything they can to ensure you enjoy your meal. In the evenings the main dining room is buzzing as the open kitchen chefs work hard to prepare the food, which is amazingly well presented and full of flavour every single time. Will definitely be heading back some time soon!"
    dined on 08/06/2014
  • "Very novel & avant-garde versions of traditional dishes, with the ceviches & tiraditos taken to a new level!!"
    dined on 06/06/2014

    dined on 26/05/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. We even had a band for our Sunday lunch. We ended up staying all the way to dinner -- with drinks in between. Dinner was certainly pricier but equally as good. An enjoyable Sunday."
    dined on 25/05/2014
  • "I always liked this restaurant the thing is the waiter was so rude in the beginning but thankfully the manager solved the issue and was very nice and i didn't like the set menu Sunday idea , variation is not up to the usual standards "
