Coya Restaurant and Bar brings the spirit of South America to the heart of Dubai. 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 rums, sits adjacent to the main dining room, where the sights and sounds of Coya come together to fill the senses with the essence of South American culture.

I really don’t care how popular Coya is anymore. To charge 800 dirhams for a serving of ceviche and 40 grams of cod with a glass of house wine is a complete rip off. There is no value for money and insinuating to customers that you can only have a table for two hours means you want to turn your tables over and make money. Ultimately Coya couldn’t care less about quality over cost. I’m never coming back. I would rather have a five star dinner with an entree, two mains, a dessert and sake at Zuma and be a repeat customer because quality comes above price.

Exceptional service from the moment you walk up to the entrance doors, food choice and taste was better than expected. Excellent atmosphere, not too loud and crowded yet had a fantastic vibe.

Although we book a “ table “ but they asked us to set at the food bar facing the kitchen and they said in your reservation you didn’t mention that you want a table !! Seriously!!!!!! When we refused to set there and told the manager we either get a proper table or we are leaving ! They said ok just wait few minutes to prepare your table :) didn’t like the reception service at all

The Food and Service were fantastic, and the noise level was perfect combination of ambient music and conversationally comfortable.
The seats were a bit too close together, however, and it was FAR too easy to feel crammed into the next tables' conversations (or be overheard.)

Coya is one of the few venues in dubai which keep service, quality and experience all combined in a higher level than other restaurants.
Matthiew and everyone we met during the evening always ensured that me and my husband had a great evening! I absolutely love coya!

We had an amazing meal (4-course Ifta meal) but we felt rushed! The waiter kept coming to collect dishes and bring in the next despite our request to give us a few minutes...we were done in 1hr 30min and left even though we had planned for a longer night....finished off our date elsewhere. Could have been amazing...

Went there on recommendation. Had a very nice evening with excellent food and very friendly and attentive service.
Having only a two hours slot available fells like a little pressure, especially if you want to eat calmly and not look on your watch until you have to leave. Not sure this would have happened as the place was not fully booked.

Celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday with the Tasting Menu. Delighted with the service of the staff and the sheer quantity of food that just kept on coming. Friends have also tried the Iftar set menu at 250pp, which they highly recommended.

Lovely experience but very pricey for couple. There are lots of restaurants which offer same experience, quality of food & service for 1/3 of price of what we paid. (2ppl = AED 1.3k). Brunch may be better value/way of doing this restaurant.

While the food is good, it’s very overpriced. If you are a tourist in Dubai and have your phone in airplane mode the day of your reservation and do not get their same day text rather then the night before, they will cancel your reservation without question or apology. Most restaurants confirm the day before but, not Coya. If you want to be seen with your shiny new Ferrari or Porsche, a must stop on Dubai.

The experience was great but a Restaurant like Coya should have a good sommelier and there was only a lady that did not know anything about wines.
