With food prepared in one of three open kitchens (the Ceviche Bar, the open charcoal grill and the central kitchen) COYA London is just as much as about spectacle as it is about delicious cuisine. Fusing traditional Peruvian cooking with a contemporary twist, menu highlights include Ceviche de Lubina Clasico and Chuletas de Borrego and their bar menu is pretty delightful also - think over 40 tequilas and an extensive rum list. Amazing. Visit CoyaRestaurant.com for booking enquiries.
