The Latin American restaurant group, COYA, has announced the launch of its first European site outside London, opening in Monaco in May 2018. Coinciding with the Monaco Grand Prix, COYA will open above Jimmy’z and Monte Carlo Bay.
The 257-cover venue will incorporate a buzzing and vibrant bar and a contemporary Peruvian restaurant, COYA said. In collaboration with Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, COYA Monte Carlo says it is set “to revive the city’s culinary scene, providing a vibrant hub for international visitors and the stars of music, film, fashion and sport”.

Guests will be taken on a Latin American journey from the moment they arrive at the grand entrance of COYA Monte-Carlo. The sweeping terrace with sea views, COYA’s infamous Pisco Bar & Lounge, a luxury shisha experience and resident DJ throughout the summer will make this Monaco’s new hotspot.
A menu of globally renowned COYA dishes will be overseen by Chef Sanjay Dwivedi, who combines traditional elements of Peruvian cuisine with Modern European cooking techniques and Asian influences to create naturally light and healthy dishes.

The décor, designed by the London-based design studio Sagrada, who are responsible for all COYA venues (London, Abu Dhabi and Dubai), will incorporate Peruvian artefacts, plant features and bespoke hand-crafted furniture. A key design feature of the restaurant will be the Ceviche Bar – an open prep kitchen that puts guests at the centre of the action to watch the iconic Peruvian dishes being made.
A 30-seater Private Dining Room will provide ultimate exclusivity and a spectacular dining experience with unrivalled views.
COYA Monte-Carlo will be open in May throughout high season, closing in October 2018 for the winter period.
