I went to Coya with a friend while on my visit to Dubai. It was recommended to me from a few other friends who lived there before. It certainly did not disappoint. The food was exceptional, the set lunch is great value, and the decor is on point. Definitely will go again!

Food was "ok" and overpriced. Quality has gone down over past 2 years. Service was below average (waited over 20 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation and a couple of our food items were delayed by +30 minutes). What is worse is we had told the restaurant that it was our anniversary (they did bring a nice, small desert for that occasion)

Whereas the restaurant was overall very good, we unfortunately had on either side of our table two groups of diners who were extremely loud and inconsiderate, but that is just bad luck....

on the other hand the bar (pisco lounge) was nowhere close to the restaurant standards, it had a very poor selection of scotch whiskey, the ambience was dated if not poor and whereas smoking is allowed (I am a smoker) they did not allow cigar smoking...cigarettes are ok but cigars not ??? service was poor, we sat for a drink after dinner and left without ordering as it reminded us of a bar in a second rate airport hotel...

I came here on my Birthday. The service was horrible. We were rushed to order some food because the restaurant was closing. No one gave us food recommendations and were hungry. They couldn’t re -open the kitchen. We had a reservation. Don’t come here if you’re celebrating anything special as it will be ruined.

The ambience was very nice. We did however find that the meat was quite tough, portion size small and the meal overpriced. We paid £450 without a desert and only one glass of wine each for a party of four. We left still feeling hungry.

I am a regular guest at Coya and the first time I felt very pushed from the waiters to kick us out from the table as they had another booking at 10.30 (our booking was at 8:30pm). Two-hour seating policy was not mentioned to me over the phone when I booked the restaurant. Spending AED 5000 and being pushed to finish our meals and have no break between appetizer, main course and dessert is not something we were happy about. Service is amazing but pushing guests like this is not, especially when they are paying the premium for this.

Service are not really interested. I had asked for a good table as it was my daughters birthday but Got one where everyone was walking.
My husbond ordered a wine and immediately the maitre suggested a wine that was much better - and double the price!

A small thing -nice they brought a birthday cake but would Have been nice if they waited with it until everybody were at the table!
Very difficult to convince them that 4 out of 5 could have the gourmet menu - one guest did have a stomach issue - but we succeeded.

Most food fine - except som really boring Pattata brava - asked for salt for them that never came.
Coya is very expensive so I expected better.

ruined our engagement dinner, NEVER would i step by, restaurant service sucks so bad that even after 2 nights I am still thinking about it. I love coya london, but this cola dubai restaurant service was just beyond ridiculous and rude. Guests don't pay bucks for their waiters to shame them. Don't get me wrong, hostess and bar team was amazing, but the restaurant service was a disgrace. SO BAD.

Horrible experience
Has booked a table 1 month in advance for Valentine’s Day
Was given two seats at a bar overlooking the kitchen , so romantic !
I refused , asked for a proper table , was told by a rude manager that I had been warned by a phone call which is a total lie , ended up leaving and having wonderful dinner at JEan George .
Avoid Coya at all cost !

Worst service and manager ever. Requested for sofa table in lounge area (smoking). Arrived on time and got the desired table. After 10 minutes and already close to start ordering saw the restaurant manager Martin going to the hostess and whispering something, then she came to me saying this table was given to you by mistake and we have to relocate you. The relocation in a very small table in a walkway in cigar lounge which is totally separated of the main restaurant. I refused then the manager came and he said that this what we got this time and all smoking tables will not be free before last order. Then I told him why you moved my table after being seated and he continued lying and said I didnt know. Then he gave me his card for next time to contact him and said even next time I cant promise a sofa table. I have seen rude and cheap people but such cheap manager I have never seen. I totally recommend avoiding this restaurant
