Now in its second year, Coya’s Mykonos outpost takes a prominent position in the heart of Mykonos Town and offers its guests a multi-sensory journey through Peruvian and Latin culture. Set against a backdrop of luscious greenery and striking florals, the restaurant at Coya takes centre stage in the courtyard with two pisco bar and lounges occupying the interior.
In keeping with the theme synonymous with the global restaurant group, the décor here evokes Incan influence which is paired with a sleek design and eye-catching antique furniture throughout. Elevating its outdoor-dining concept, the architecture of the courtyard here is undeniably Cycladic which adds a welcome touch of authenticity to the exterior.
Having already established itself as the go-to for the well-travelled globetrotters that frequent the island, Coya Mykonos is the perfect spot for either a culinary experience or for cocktails in one of the stylish lounges.
A noteworthy addition to Coya’s already expansive global portfolio, the Mykonos location is also host to top DJ’s through the Coya music label with guests enjoying sets of everything from Latin influenced electronica to tech and afro house which gives a real upbeat ambience to this glamorous destination.
Serving a menu of gastronomic excellence, Coya Mykonos’ menu is a fusion of authentic Peruvian cuisine and modern Latin American fare. As vibrant as its backdrop, the menu transports guests on a journey through innovative dishes created using fine ingredients and local produce.
Best shared, the menu features everything from small dishes, tacos and tiraditos to larger iron pots and plates of fish and seafood along with salads and side dishes. Around 3-4 small dishes per person and one of the heartier plates is about right.
Perhaps most noteworthy is Coya’s ceviches with highlights including the corvina a la trufa and the delectable lubina clásica, sea bass served with red onion, sweet potato and white corn which is very much a flagship dish of the restaurant. Coya also has the option to order a selection of its signature ceviches which is a nice way to sample a few.
Try the anticuchos for an authentic taste too, charcoal grilled, the skewers range from octopus through to prawns and flavoursome forest mushrooms.
For the mains, the lamb chops are a favourite and really ooze Peruvian flavour, the spicy beef fillet with shallots is also quite a nice way to really get a feel for the South American tastes the group is known for.
Finish with the churros for dessert and one of Coya’s famous pisco sours and you’ll quickly fall in love with this magical place and its authentic charm.
Coya is open daily during the season, bookings are recommended for the terrace and courtyard.
