Nice ambiance with a DJ in the bar area where we ate at a window table on a Friday night. Excellent food but very expansive - £230 for 2 with one bottle and 2 glasses of wine (which is overpriced). Good Peruvian experience, just too expensive

Went to Coya for the first time for a business lunch. Had the express menu which gives a selection of sharing plates to start and a good choice of mains. Really enjoyed the fresh flavours of the cooking. The ceviches were excellent and the sea bass main was particularly good.

Food was EXCELLENT! Everything we ordered was well cooked. All flavours were on point and contrasts in textures just made it a delightful meal. The drinks were also delicious and balanced. We went on a Saturday night so staff were busy, leading to a slow service. Would have rated it a 5-star experience otherwise.

Seated 1 hour after our booking, forced to go to the bar and taken to table twice after the table we booked for was given away to someone else. We sat down, no acknowledgement from any waiter. Waiter comes after 15minutes and says “you want to order?”. I give a full order including drinks. Confirm allergies where I stated that both of us were allergic to shellfish and his response was to bring the prawn crackers on the side instead with the guacamole?? I believe an allergy should be treated more seriously. It’s not a preference! I ask for a wine list twice. Starters even come before water on the table! At this point the experience is already sour and service is dull. No smiles, no food checkback. Food is average, nothing spectacular. Sides were forgotten; until we reminded the waiter about it. Very sour experience overall and one which I won’t repeat.

Having seen this restaurant on BBC’s Masterchef I had high expectations. I was disappointed as the waiter serving our food was either not listening or being attentive or just couldn’t be bothered. For starters we ordered 3 small plates, two of them came and we waited 10 mins, before having to ask the waiter where the other one was. The waiter appeared with it another 10 mins later, having I believe, forgotten to place the order in the first place. We order our mains..whilst waiting a dish we hadn’t ordered was brought to us! When we eventuality got the correct mains, my partners came out without mine.. again having waited 15 mins for my main to come out I had to ask two different waiters where my main was. My main eventually came out 25 mins after my partners! The noise level was very loud and it was difficult to have a conversation. The staff however were lovely and very welcoming and accommodating but the overall taste of the food was nothing to write home about. Very disappointed. I will give it another try because I want to believe that it can be better ...but not the Angel Court branch, the Mayfair branch.

Un must de la cuisine péruvienne à Londres dans une Belle Salle.La cuisine est très bonne avec des tapas Super à partager et Le pisco sour est top.
Ce qui est dommage est que le niveau sonore est trop élevé surtout quand il y a Le DJ qui met une musique de boîte de nuit et pas de restaurant. Donc impossible de parler entre amis !
Vins un peu trop chers .

Great food as always (except a little extra sugar in the quinoa salad which was a pity as it’s one of our favourite dishes on the menu). The ceviches and truffle iron pot were excellent, wine was superb and service very friendly.

Lives up to the original in Piccadilly’s high standards and fantastic food, on the margins a better room as slightly less noisy than the original - but the City is not the West End, so good for the week, but not convinced for the weekend, still there are plenty of Friday nights to make the most of!

First time at this restaurant seen on Master Chef. Friendly staff at reception, bar and in the restaurant. Food was quite different and all selections were both interesting and tasty. Wine served in 500ml carafes was a bit pricey but of good quality. Strongly recommend others to try this restaurant out.

The food is out of this world - amazing spicy guacamole to start, fresh and crispy chicken tacos and then - the highlight - the juicy, succulent steak (the best in London, hands down) and salmon. Not a budget option, but the price is well worth a world-class dining experience.

Coya is beautifully decorated and the vibe is fun and cool.

Starters and main course menus were good. We had skewers to start and rib eye steak / chicken for main. Food was excellent.

Cost was 120 for two who were drinking water only. So not a cheap meal.

Where it was lacking was the service which, when you got it was supercilious and aloof. Furthermore I waited 15 minutes after the main course arrived for the accompanying side dishes. These 2 components marred an other good experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Coya. Service was excellent and food was delicious. Perfectly cooked spicy beef and the corn-fed chicken was just right. We loved the desert - the sweet corn/popcorn/pineapple combination was just perfect, as was the coconut ice cream. This restaurant is not cheap, but you get what you pay for and we weee delighted from start to finish. We will definitely return.

This is a self-consciously unusual restaurant offering Peruvian food and a wide range of accompanying wines from different countries in South America. Not for every day but it is refreshingly "different".

Coya Angel Court is a beautiful luxurious restaurant, with a great sharing selection for an evening out with friends and family. The venue is beautifully decorated and perfect for photographs!

However, the service is what lacked for us. Staff were very intimidating and rude, due to our lack of knowledge on the menu selection and cocktails available, this was our first time dining at a Peruvian restaurant and was very excited. Staff offered sarcastic comments and were not friendly when we realised we needed to order more food, as portions were very small and we did not get any suggestion that we had ordered too little.

I would therefore choose to not recommend this restaurant, the food is great but unless you are happy to get a low level of service and rude staff, I would not choose to dine here again.
