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

  • "Food was very good but unfortunately the service was not."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "This was my first time at this establishment. The bar and restaurant. are well designed."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "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
  • "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"

  • "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
  • "Fabulous food in an opulent & beautiful setting with fabulous service. Flavours that make the dining experience unique. I can't wait to go back again."

  • "We where spoilt from the moment we entered. The service was brilliant and the food was outstanding. We tried the bar and has loads of fun with the barn lady. All in all a great experience"
    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 "
    dined on 25/05/2014
  • "really good food and service, the ambience outstanding. i restaurant i would definetly recommend"
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "Is a Peruvian inspired kitchen, with very nice selection and attractive dishes. "
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • "While the food was great, as has been the 2 times we previously dined at Coya, the service was bordering on absurd. Most busy London restaurants manage to go through dinner effortlessly given the time constraints, but Coya was simply rushed - 90 minutes for a dinner of 4? I didn't order a second bottle of wine and more food because of this constant pressure, and we just left prematurely. "
    dined on 06/05/2014
  • "Food amazing , atmosphere great and nice company! Best Peruvian ever! To try absolutely !"
    dined on 27/04/2014
  • "Lively environment. Good service and friendly staff. I liked the food very much as it was really unique mixed of various flavour. I would recommend for a birthday bash or pre/after theater."
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "I had a business lunch meeting with an American colleague at Coya - it was his first time. I was surprised that the restaurant was not more busy, but I took advantage of this by requesting that the various dishes should be brought at a leisurely pace giving us plenty of time to talk. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding: spicy ceviche, fresh and crisp vegetables / salads, beautifully flavoured anticuchos beef. The overall experience was excellent and I would highly recommend the place. I have come before in the evening when the atmosphere is very different and tables are hard to find, but I would recommend Coya for the quieter experience at lunchtime, with the same high quality food."
    dined on 14/04/2014
  • "Pros: - Truly yummy food - Something different and original in this area - Fun space Cons: - Expensive"
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "It seems by the moment you seat at your table that you have to order, to eat fast, to pay and to leave the table asap as new customers are coming. I book Coya in advance every time and every time there is the same rush to leave by the moment I sit at the table ON TIME. This doesn't make the all experience relaxing."
    dined on 01/04/2014
  • "I have eaten in Coya twice before now. I booked with friends for 6pm. I was unfortunately a few minutes late but by the time I arrived my friends had almost been forced to order! Not quite with a gun at their heads but not far behind! There was no mention of the 2 hour window on booking or on reconfirming my reservation. The service was rushed and the wrong side of efficient i.e. rude. Restaurants who treat paying customers like this do not deserve their success. But Coya was packed with young things paying handsomely for their dates. My friends well have the means to eat in Coya every night if they so wish but I doing that they will after this experience. To be fair the manager did make amends and was courteous and helpful."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "We were pleased to spot a Peruvian restaurant in London - having really enjoyed Peruvian dishes in Miami last year. I have to say COYA more than lived up to expectations and all dishes were wonderfully tasty and some of the signature dishes eg Sea Bass iron pot dish and Spicy Beef dish were fantastic. Service was excellent and great surroundings. Cost of drinks/wine a bit on the pricy side but I guess that is to be expected with a Picadilly address to fund."
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "Coya really was fantastic, one sip of that first Pisco Sour and I was back in Miraflores, Lima Peru! What's so fantastic about Coya is that everyone thinks it's just going to be like any other South American Restaurant, but then are shocked by just how different the flavours are and how incredible! I'm with a Peruvian so am really familiar with the food, so think this really show cased it well. The only thing I would have liked to have seen was whether the fish they are using for the ceviche is sustainable, what you'd expect for a high-end restaurant but that's personal preference. One thing to note is that they are VERY strict on the time you have at your table, so don't be late! It's definitely a treat!"
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "Been various times to Coya and would recommend it for groups big and small. Great sharing food. The meal was good as usual, tuna ceviche, crab salad, pork ribs and the lamb chops deserve a special mention. The staff were helpful - and whilst two guests were late and they did inform us of the 2 hour turnaround time - it was done in a polite and helpful manor. Would certainly be going again. Stayed at the bar after for a few drinks - good cocktail menu and vibe."
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "One of the best meals I've had in London. A bit expensive but amazingly good! Be sure to try the ribs and the corn sundae."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Well I'm not very big. I weigh 55kilos and am average height. I left this place as hungry as when I went in. I had the set lunch menu Three courses. The food was really merger. The ceviche was non descript. The quinoa salad was tasty and potato dish was ok. The set lunch menu was 26 GBP two of us with only water and the bill was 82 pounds, they charged 20 pounds for water and you don't know that til you get the bill I had to beg for a waiters attention even though there wS only one other table occupied The ambience is beautiful though"
    dined on 12/02/2014
  • "One of the best restaurants in London. Great food, excellent service. Having said that the price seems just too much for what you get."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "Ambience and service were really outstanding but having been to Sushi Samba and Lima I felt there is room for improvement when it comes to the food. The food was not bad but it was not superb by no means."
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "Great, memorable dishes. Very cool venue with excellent location. Waiter was very attentive. Only issue was that service seemed a bit too smooth and operational. Would go back."
    dined on 26/01/2014
  • "We enjoyed outstanding cuisine. Such refreshing, delicious and very different flavours. Lovely to be able to taste small portions of perfectly prepared food. Excellent service to go with it."
    dined on 24/01/2014
  • "Great ambiance, pretty people, packed - but service was extremely slow and we felt forgotten at times."
