Lunch menu was outstanding. The choice of 2 appetizers and 1 main dish was numerous, varied and delicious. This is definitely a place not to miss for a quiet lunch either with family, friends, or business ties. To top it all Coya is on the grounds of the very beautiful Jumeira Four Seasons Hotel.

Awesome Waiter, great service and food. Lighting at our table was too bright and harsh from downlighter otherwise not an issue.

Wine pricing let’s down an otherwise exceptional restaurant experience

All good but way too pricey for what you get. That’s a common issue for Dubai restaurants where the bling bling is nice but the wine list is a knife on your chest.
Hard to accept for a European used to better wine for 1/4 the price.
Same applies to drinks that often are warmly pushed by restaurant staff.
Hostess at the front door act a bit as they were 1st tier Hollywood actresses rather than welcoming clients and addressing them to their table.

Decided to take my wife to this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. When booking, it wasn't mentioned that they would put us in a counter bar in front of the kitchen. When asked to give us a table, they said that they didn't have.

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.
