Time Out Says
When you walk into COYA, you can’t help but be wowed. The restaurant is gorgeous, with tasteful Peruvian art covering the walls and plenty of foliage dotted about. And as an added bonus the window seats offer views of Downtown Dubai. You can see the chefs lovingly preparing dishes in the open kitchen, and the sight will leave you trawling the menu eagerly.
The food is just as delicious as it looks behind the glass window, and you can’t help but be seriously impressed by the famed guacamole, which is made at the table. The kale and manchego salad is mind-blowingly good, and the veal heart skewers are deliciously smoky thanks to the smoldering coals they’re served on. The seafood ceviches have just the right amount of zing, and don’t miss the potato churros, which are covered in manchego and truffle and come with a cheesy sauce we could eat for days.
The restaurant is always packed with people, no matter what day of the week, and if you visit you’ll understand why.
It comes with a price tag, but one that’s worth it, and if you’re looking for a Latin American dinner to seriously impress, head to COYA.
