Founded by the incredibly successful restauranteur Arjun Waney (also behind Zuma, Roka and The Arts Club), Coya has become a firm favourite in the trendy London dining scene. The stunningly designed restaurant features modern Peruvian cuisine, alongside an extensive Pisco bar with pisco-based cocktails and a variety of their own-blend infusions. Interestingly this is the first Peruvian restaurant in London to have its own private members bar and dining room (on the first floor).
Housed in an impressive Georgian buidling, interiors are designed by David D'Almada (La Petite Maison, The Arts Club) juxtaposing a rich Incan colour scheme and antique Peruvian furniture against more modern design touches.
The downstairs restaurant features a ceviche bar where diners can sit and sample a wide range of classic ceviches and tiraditos. The menu also features anticuchos (grilled skewer meat), parillada dishes and a range of meat and fish dishes cooked on a traditional Josper oven. In the Pisco bar you'll see traditional botija mud containers (the traditional storage for Pisco since the 1800’s), alongside an interesting selection of spirits and hard-to-find tequilas and rums.

Table 50 is a beautiful hand panted table in the centre, allowing you a glimpse of the entire room - it's where you sit to be seen. For the best bar seat ask to be sat down in front of Jun the Bar manager providing the opportunity to have countless cocktails and a decent chat.
The Tuna chifa ceviche incorporates both the Peruvian and Chinese elements of the cuisine with yellowfin tuna, soy, sesame seeds and a shrimp cracker.
