- Nice ambiance!MarthaDined on 12/9/2014The restaurant is very good. The only thing was that I booked a deal here and they phoned me saying that there was no deal in the evenings (even if I booked a VERY early dinner!). That was not said in the site! So we went for dinner anyway and had to pay the full price.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good atmosphereBillDined on 30/8/2014This is the third time that we've been here. The food is very good & it's always busy & has lots of atmosphere.Special Features:
- Exquisite food somewhat priceyiodaxDined on 30/8/2014The service at Coya was excellent and our attentive waiter took time to really consider our preferences and make superb choices, which I'm pleased we followed as they were delicious - a the bar we enjoyed a traditional Peruvian pico sour cocktail with a twist. They were delicious but when my friend was asked if he wanted another and said "no" they misheard and brought another anyway. At the table the extensive menu included enough unusual items that we were pleased to have the waiter's excellent advice. The atmosphere in the restaurant was superb and became progressively more lively and somewhat jet-set as the evening progressed. All in all we had a very enjoyable experience - but expensive as the meal worked out to around £100 per head.Special Features:
- Nice Peruvian food - not serviceHappySushiVIPDined on 25/8/2014Coya 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.Special Features:
- GreatLocalheroVIPDined on 23/8/2014Delicious food, great decor and fantastic service!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food and servicecswallow0425Dined on 23/8/2014Great 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PoorFoodie23Dined on 20/8/2014Pretentious 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.
- Great peruvian fine diningmaverickVIPDined on 18/8/2014Coya 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.Special Features:
- Rather disappointingMariaDined on 16/8/2014Food 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 isSpecial Features:
- Outstanding Peruvian food!DelectableDivaDined on 14/8/2014We 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)Special Features:
- Lovely decor and foodTeresaVIPDined on 12/8/2014The 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.Special Features:
- Very disappointed serviceLouieDined on 12/8/2014The 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!
- delicious foodElmleaDined on 9/8/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Beautiful delicious foodIeatoutalotDined on 8/8/2014The 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great service, wondetful foodvg29Dined on 8/8/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Something special and niceDinghaoDined on 4/8/2014We 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.Special Features:
- Sexy peruviancitydwellerVIPDined on 2/8/2014Perfect for a late night dining experience. A bit pricey thoughSpecial Features:
- Great place to hang outNadineDined on 31/7/2014Loved the ambiance! Staff v friendly and the food is really good. Cant wait it opens in Dubai.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Felt like a theme restaurant.RussianSaladDined on 28/7/2014The 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.
- Wonderful Sunday brunchwelshwebberDined on 27/7/2014Coya 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 returnSpecial Features:
- Taste SensationOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 23/7/2014Truly 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!Special Features:
- BluebellDined on 19/7/2014Food was very good but unfortunately the service was not.
- Well designed restaurantchukVIPDined on 19/7/2014This was my first time at this establishment. The bar and restaurant. are well designed.
- OutstandingFoodieFrenzyDined on 19/7/2014This 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Peruvian food, yum!!BiancaDined on 17/7/2014Loved 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful...AsitisDined on 13/7/2014Had 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- LunchianmDined on 4/7/2014Coya 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- lunchtime legendlunchlegendDined on 4/7/2014Three 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.Special Features:
- HAIL TO THE CEVICHEGSLondonDined on 30/6/2014Coya 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AmazingMimzy89Dined on 19/6/2014One 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 :pSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AmazingfalexDined on 17/6/2014Food out of this world, delicate, inventive, tasty. Excellent service and super vibe
- Great food, service and ambienceJay9Dined on 17/6/2014I 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OutstandingMichou412Dined on 15/6/2014I 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 experienceSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great restaurantNielsVDined on 12/6/2014Went 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 placeSpecial Features:
- Expensive but very goodNicholasDined on 12/6/2014This 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing lunchFoodiexplorerVIPDined on 9/6/2014Visited Coya for the 4-course set lunch menu and had a fabulous experience - the decor and ambience is very exotic and luxurious but relaxed at the same time. Coya's seabass ceviche is the best I've had in London. The sea bream with fennel salad was also perfect in every sense. Service was charming. Going back for Sunday brunch very soon. Highly recommended.Special Features:
- Would go again!SheenacDined on 8/6/2014Amazing 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best in town!!j88jkeDined on 8/6/2014I'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!Special Features:
- Interesting!!JOSEDined on 6/6/2014Very novel & avant-garde versions of traditional dishes, with the ceviches & tiraditos taken to a new level!!Special Features:
- Outstanding foodMaia1606Dined on 2/6/2014Fabulous food in an opulent & beautiful setting with fabulous service. Flavours that make the dining experience unique. I can't wait to go back again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
