                                                        Our waiter suggested to us no less than 3 new dishes, and a new cocktail, all of which we didn't like. The seabass was dry because of excessive cooking, and we were served (and obviously billed) the double portion, despite having ordered the single portion. Another one of my favorite restaurants that chooses profit over quality. What a pity.

                                                        Good food and drinks and a talented bartender, medium level service compare with the restaurants around, funny that I sent a note on the booking as it was my anniversary but all that they did ( write happy anniversary on my order with cream)

                                                        Leider kann ich dieses Restaurant nur bedingt weiterempfehlen. Das Personal an der Eingangstüre und am Empfang waren äusserst unfreundlich und wenig Kompromiss bereit. In der Open table Reservierungsbestätigung stand lediglich DRESS CODE: SMART CASUAL. Als ich mit einem Hemd und kurzen Chino Hosen in das Restaurant wollte, hat man mir zuerst den Eintritt verweigert. Nach langem hin und her und nur auf mein Hinweisen das es nirgendwo stand das man mit kurzen Hosen nicht rein darf. Hat man uns den Eintritt gewährt. Das Personal war äusserst schlecht geschult und dieses Restaurant nicht gerecht. Wenn man schon ein auf teueres und nobles Restaurant machen möchte, dann gehören gewisse Manieren auch schon an den Empfang. Essen war grundsätzlich top aber alles leider zu teuer für „TAPAS“ style.

                                                        A little pricey but great food, location and ambiance. Would definitely recommend, but be prepared to spend some AED.

                                                        Probably because it was on Thursday and it was packed, it took a while to get a booked table (9:30pm). We got there around 9 pm, and they told us to wait 10 min which turned to 40 min. Food quality is really good, and Miguel, who assisted us during the dinner, was very kind and helpful. We do really recommend this restaurant.

                                                        The food was amazing and perfect as always! The service was top notch, they were like right on the spot with making sure that we weren’t stacked up with food as well, not waiting lots of time between each course. Everyone was very helpful and polite. We had the Iftar menu this time (during Ramadan) and it was a LOT of food. We love going to Coya and love our experience each time we go.

                                                        The menu was extremely limited and thus were stuck for options which was very misleading after checking the menu prior to booking. Left hungry having paid a lot of money.

                                                        Location ist sehr stylisch und der Serviceist sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich. Die Auswahl der Speisen ist sehr interessant und abwechslungsreich. Die Qulität der Produkte ist gut. Einzig das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist nicht ganz stimmig. Dies hängt jedoch mit dem Standort Abu Dhabi und den genrellen Preisniveau in der Stadt zusammen. Wenn man auf Nikkei-Küche steht, ist das Coya auf jeden Fall eine gute Adresse.

The staff was kind and professional, except for only one waiter, whose attitude was not very friendly: he never smiled to us, he put our dishes on the table roughly, we could not get his attention when we wanted the bill (finally we asked the maitre), and other unfriendly behaviour; looked like he had been forced to serve us...it’s a pity, because the overall experience was good
