I would like to highly recommend this restaurant, as a native Peruvian I have to say, the taste of the food was absolutely delightfully amazing!

I also appreciate the well received feedback taken by the General Manager Alessandro Zavarise, on regards of the lemon in our typical Ceviche from Perú, he explained that some times is not easy with the suppliers to meet the needs, which is completely acceptable and understandable being in Doha, to find the unique and real Peruvian corn, was already a lot, and I know is a lot of work behind in order to get as similar as possible our recipes with real ingredients.

I liked the fact of genuine approach to talk and ask how was the meal, and have a sommelier who can guide you and sort out any doubts if you are not sure which wine is pairing better along with your meal choice.

I could feel the team work and even the Manager Alessandro is doing the clearance of plates at some point, although there was personnel, he did not hesitate to help. Mentioned this because I seen in other places, the supervisors only approach to give a general speech, they see plates to clear and still call somebody to do it walking out with empty hands, customer service and quality is not just about a position but also take a big place into play the role as a whole team, and unfortunately many, called as leaders or head department manager, don't do that in many well known restaurants here, so when I see it, I love to mention it and take the time to share my good experience.

A new restaurant is not just about charm, luxurious, or food quality but also about empathy, genuine interaction, body language, people not robots, that goes above and beyond expectations.

Definitely as I said to Alessandro, we will come back, for the mamá secret recipe of the Arroz con Leche dessert offered, I felt like eating at home for real.

If you love seafood! Try the octopus, a delicate and risky plate to cook, but here was Wow!

Lovely time

After a long wait Coya finally opened at W Hotel and Residences and we managed to try it at the first opening. We wanted to share the experience with you.

It was a delight from start to end and we ate so much. Perfect for sharing and discovering rich flavors.

We started with the guacamole which was very tasty and refreshing. Followed by the Churros de Papa which was delicious (for a fan of Churros). We then had a selection of Ceviches. Prego a la Trufa was our favorite.

For the mains we opted for the lamb chops and Pulpo Rostizado which was very tasty and lamb cooked to perfection.

And finally the desserts, we opted for the Churros de Naranja, Sundae de Maiz and Cheesecake de Maracuya. All delicious and quite interesting flavors in the sundae with pop corn.

We had a great evening and enjoyed the meals. Service was very good, the team's recommendations were excellent and ambiance was great. We did not wait too long for orders. We will definitely visit again.
