Entertainment
Celebrating the spirit of Latin America, the music and cultural program at COYA will oscillate between the old and the new, taking in a lateral view of Latin culture through a London lens. Whether it is street art or classic photography, the greatest musicians of times gone by or the quirkiest collaborations between British musicians and contemporary Latin bands, the COYA Collective will be neither predictable nor one dimensional.

The test of a good restaurant is whether I would want to revisit. Absolutely not! The dj must be deaf! Unbearably loud.
The food is good but very pricey. You are not given time in between courses. The dishes were cleared as soon as you finished with the next course appearing in record time!
The whole ambience is of a feeling that their no 1 priority is to get you out asap. Oh and we had to wait 45 minutes for our table.

The service was not so good. We waited very long for the dishes, and after receiving them there were some mistakes. We were served wrong dishes again later on. No compensation was offered by the staff. Very expensive, which is ok, because the food is unique and good, but would expect exquisite service when charging so much, or at least some kind of recognition when mistakes happen (the staff were aware as they did apologize for all the mistakes, but didn’t do anything about it essentially)

Such a great venue. Great bar great ambience and to be fair service is excellent but in booking a table at 2.30 on a Sunday having ordered drinks at the table then to be told kitchen closes in 15/20 minutes meaning need to hurry up a touch just takes away that relaxing atmosphere and a rushed feel to it was added. Never the less a superb place

The venue is beautiful and I love the upbeat music on the background.
Food was amazing! Ceviche very fresh and yummy. Loved the salmon. Lamb chops were ok. I’ve seen ribeye on the next table, looked amazing. For desert had something salted caramel chocolate, fantastic! Service was very attentive and friendly. Until the last minutes. My friend was asked by 3 people to hurry up to pay the bill and leave whilst I was in WC, apparently we were over 2hrs time slot. Could have been a tad nicer about this, hence 4 stars for service. We had such a great time until the last minutes, what a shame. Otherwise, top marks!

Always very good food and tasty. Unfortunately portions are becoming smaller and smaller. They changes the lunch formula to a cheaper one which is a pitty. When you go out for lunch or dinner you want to eat. Portions are really tiny, they should care about customers feddbacks.

Not sure what the problem was. Just didn’t feel welcome. Rushed through the meal...told the moment we sat down that we only had two hours (even though we were 15 min early). We asked for some time to look at the menu, and were told we needed to hurry. Maybe it was the fact that we were American? We won’t be back. Not a fun experience.

Litte disappointed with our experience at COYA. The food was very nice however, Im somewhat disappointed at the portion sizes given the prices for each dish! Appreciate its tapas style but i have had a better portion sizes at similar restaurant near by. Service for me was a little bit slow and fragmented. Whilst our food food waiter was very helpful, the sommier seemed to be very busy and was difficult to get hold of. i believe the wine list is incredible pricey! only two bottles of red i found that were under £50 the rest ranges from 100 - 1500! really?! We were there to celebrate our anniversary - was a nice touch they wrote a little message on our desert although at these prices one wished we could get a little more! My wife was sitting under the wine glasses racked above her. A waiter accidentally pushed one off to fall on her shoulder. Very lucky it missed her head. I suggest looking at making that wine rack a little safer! Finally the bill already contains a service charge. I think its a little cheeky for them to hand me the card machine requesting additional gratuity!

Would i come back.. not really. I heard a lot of good things but they didn't live up to the standard we were expecting. Given the mistakes made on the night, i find it difficult to justify the prices they are expecting.

Booked a birthday brunch for my friend. Awful crowd, very rowdy and did not live up to my expectation. Not what you would expect from a restaurant like Coya. Might as well have been in a pub in Essex on a Friday night. Horrendous experience. Even the ladies on the table next to us agreed that it truly was horrendous crowd and left early. Food options are limited if you don’t eat fish as that’s the main attraction for the brunch. Waste of money

It's very good restaurant but way overpriced for what it is.
We were seated with 35 min delay and were asked to leave the table after 2 hours (which was the policy of the restaurant) but then we should have been seated on time... I was very appalled but this!

We were unfortunately late and although told by email that the table was allocated for 2 hours we felt we were unduly rushed. The greeting lady was particularly gruff & unfriendly which didn’t start the evening well. As a high end Restaurant where we were expecting to enjoy a night to savour the food & relax we were pushed through the service like cargo.
The food however was as expected excellent particularly enjoyed the beef tatami, pho buns & ceviches. Espresso martini & cocktail choice was superb. Dessert of dolce de lèche was flavoursome & cleansed the palette after the previous flavours of our dishes.
Would I return? Perhaps for lunch

Overall a very good experience except the service was a little rushed. Dishes were cleared away too quickly and made us feel under pressure and not a meal we could sit back, sip our wine and relax.
The volume of the music was a fraction loud. However the choice of music was excellent.
Despite all this, we still had an enjoyable evening and the food was delicious.
