Great food selections. Because we were about for decades older than most people there, we really appreciated the very helpful staff, who recommended the small plates and skewers. We enjoyed the very buzzy atmosphere without distracting music.

Absolutely spectacular from beginning to end. Service was impeccable, food was devine. Ambiance stimulating. Had the Sea Bass Iron Pot and the short ribs. Both amazing. The guacamole and kale salad were delightful starters, fresh and flavorful. Highly recommend

If you are looking for a touch of great Peruvian cuisine or just for something different in Dubai this is the place to come.
We opted for a five-course tasting menu and it was totally worth it. Execution and creativity of the dishes is at the top. Not a single flaw with any of the items. The Ceviche platter made a great impression, the mains were authentic and perfectly prepared, end the deserts offered definitely a new experience.

The place has a cool modern vibe and open glass kitchen that just enhances the decor. Staff is very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable of the cuisine. Happy to accommodate any dietary wishes.
There is a great bar next to the restaurant. Be sure to stop after dinner for a killer Pisco sour.

Perfect choice for both a date and dinner with friends. It's a venue I'll certainly visit again.

This was my third visit to Coya in the last 3 months and all have been significant occasions for myself and / or friends. The highest compliment I can pay the restaurant is that whenever I have to think of somewhere to celebrate or spoil my friends, Coya is at the top of the list.
Great food, service and most importantly... hospitality. I will also add that having eaten in both the Dubai and London branch numerous times, Dubai wins hands down!

 (Dubai)·Dined on 28 March 2016

Coya is located approx 10 mins north of the Burj Al Arab, therefore approx 35 mins north of the JBR Area, but a trip well worth making.
with outstanding ambiance, truly exceptional food and service of an impeccable nature (Gi Gi the wine waiter was one of the most attentive I have ever come across ) this is one of the best finds in Dubai. Certainly there is a price to pay for all of this .It is more than quite expensive "phew", but hey, you get what you pay for.
Afterward visit the mercury "roof top2 bar, located in the same hotel. This place buzzes and is a must to attend.
Enjoy the whole experience is awesome.

Great food. Cost was a little high but the servings were reasonable. Tiger prawns, ceviche and lamb ribs and sea bass were really good. Only thing I didn't like was walking through a smoke filled room to my table.
