Following an incredible response to the recent COYA Saudi Arabia pop-ups, the connoisseurs of Peruvian culture are delighted to bring the COYA brand permanently to the Kingdom with the opening of COYA Riyadh. Residents and guests of the country can enjoy signature COYA dishes overlooking Riyadh’s Sulaimaniya District. Launching in mid-February 2022, the venue promises to provide a unique ambience and exquisite experience set within one of COYA’s biggest and most beautiful restaurants yet.
COYA opened its first restaurant in Mayfair, London in 2012, and now the brand has multiple award-winning venues spread across the globe, from Paris to Monte Carlo, Mykonos, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha and now Riyadh.
The new restaurant in Riyadh will be led by General Manager Marco Di Pietro, who was previously responsible for the COYA Jeddah and COYA Riyadh pop-ups and before that as Restaurant Manager for Myazu Jeddah and Riyadh. Commenting on the launch of the venue, Marco said: “We are extremely excited to bring the taste of COYA to Saudi Arabia through our new permanent location. Focusing on a family-focused, diverse atmosphere, COYA Riyadh will be a glitzy addition to Saudi Arabia’s fine-dining scene. I look forward to welcoming guests in February 2022.”
Says Stefano Pizzini, Middle East Operations Manager, COYA: “Following highly acclaimed pop-ups in Riyadh and Jeddah, we felt a need in the Saudi Arabia dining scene for an authentic experience that focuses on Peruvian cuisine. COYA Riyadh was a result of the overwhelming response we received from our customers to open a venue in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
Promising COYA’s signature ambience and famous vibes, plus a number of tantalising dishes that are unique to the brand, guests will be kept entertained through curated beats from COYA Music, the brand’s own innovative, international music label.
Providing incredible views of the surrounding Sulaimaniya District, the venue is inviting and offers guests a luxurious feel. Featuring a live, open Ceviche Counter and an indoor terrace with a DJ corner in addition to the main dining area and outdoor garden terrace COYA Riyadh translates into a unique aesthetic with a cultural touch.
Perhaps, the most distinctive feature of the upcoming restaurant is its indoor dining area under the veranda with elements used to create a warm and luscious environment. To make the most of its glamorous location, COYA Riyadh also features a garden terrace bringing to life the Peruvian culture. The space is slated to host al fresco dining experiences throughout the year due to its pergola providing the guests with a sense of dining outdoors in lavish settings.
With additional plans in works to adorn the restaurant with a signature COYA identity, COYA Riyadh is set to host events and celebrations that will uplift and diversify the city’s calendar.
COYA Riyadh will be ready to open its door in mid-February 2022.
