Terrible service. There was 1 waiter-all of the other wait staff could only take drink orders. He forgot our appetizer order which slowed down the service even more. We ordered the coconut shrimp-it came with 3 dipping sauces and no one knew what they were....My fried grouper was soggy-not crunchy at all. I sent it back and got another order of the shrimp. The chef “threw in” a piece of broccoli tempura with the shrimp but the broccoli wasn’t fully cooked. Very overratedMore

Heard great things about this restaurant but I was not impressed. We didn’t have reservations, which was fine because they were going to fit us in at 8:30. The ambiance was warm and inviting. We ordered the shrimp bisque, which was delicious, but sadly only...got one shrimp. For our entree we ordered scallop ravioli which only came with 1.5 scallops (one normal/one baby sized). For the $$$, it wasn’t worth what we got. Not sure if I would give it another try or recommend it. Another note one of the servers was eyeballing thru a screen and giving commands on what to do. It was odd to say the least.More

Food was very good and the ambiance can't be beat. Lovely place. We are comfortable with laid back island time but even so, service was slow-ish and we had to keep getting up to find the staff to bring water, take our drink orders, etc....When our check came, it had $500 worth of drinks on it that were not ours. It was quickly remedied but just messy. Worth a visit but with reasonable expectations.More

Food- (2/5): Good there was overpriced and definitely not worth it. We payed $250 for dinner there and the food was definitely not up to standard. Everything was dry and almost tasteless. Environment- (1/5): The restaurant is right next to the poolside and in an...enclosed area, making it very stuffy. Service- (3/5): The waitress at our table was kind. However, we would constantly hear the staff yelling in the kitchen. Overall, what we paid was not worth it and I would recommend going to the nearby Infiniti Restaurant which offers much better value.More

The food is incredible and the ambiance is just magical. One of my best meals on the island. I went to a few “top rated” restaurants and they did not compare to Coyaba. We had the lobster bisque, burrata, steak and blackened mahi mahi -...all well seasoned and beautifully cooked. Divine! If you can’t get a reservation, don’t let that discourage you. Just walk in and see if you can get a table. We did that and got a table thanks to a no show. Think that happens a lot on the island with sun stroke tourists. You won’t regret dining here and thank me later :)More

We first discovered Coyaba many years ago and still remember the amazing dining experience. It was pricey, but we're foodies and it was worth it. Over the years we've made it a point to dine at Coyaba at least once on each visit to TCI....Incredibly, they have maintained the superb kitchen, inventive menu, excellent service and romantic ambience. If you enjoy fine dining, Coyaba is a must.More

This place has a lovely atmosphere- sort of like in a secret garden. However, we had missteps from the moment we sat down. First, the menus were handed to us, and when we opened them, they were filled with some sort of flying insect. We...mentioned this to the first staff member who spoke to us, and he just walked away. We put in our orders for drinks, and received these fairly quickly. We then ordered dinner, and this too came out fairly quickly. The food was good, and no one complained about this. Unfortunately, after our food was delivered, no be even attempted to check on us. We were never offered another drink during the entire service. We had one bottle of water for the table of 4, and were never offered more. We would have ordered at least one more round of drinks, if not two. My husband actually went to the bar and asked for 2 beers that never appeared. He then asked the person clearing our plates, and about 15 minutes later they finally did arrive. On our way out the door, at least 3 people asked us how we enjoyed the evening. At that point, we said “fine”, and got out of there. It was suggested at our resort that we should have left as soon as we saw bugs in the menu (to be fair, we did not have bugs I. our food!!!), and at the very least should have raised service issues with staff throughout the dinner, but we chalked things up to island time, and did not want to be rude. Again, the food was good, but the service? Absolutely terrible. I would not go back.More

We are presently on a 2 weeks vacation in Turks & Caicos for my wife’s 50 birthday. Being our first time here I asked for the best restaurant in town and the Coyaba was recommended to me. Very nice and romantic place, beautiful. We ordered...drinks to start but received our appetizers before even having a second sip of it, so after mentioning it they accepted to take it back. I ordered a bottle of wine for the main course but it arrived just after they brought the drinks and the waiter dropped it on the table and it all spilled over me. Towards the end of the meal I noticed that they brought me the wrong bottle, similar name but not the same price obviously. You know, honestly, accidents happen, but I expected honestly a visit from the owner saying they were sorry or something…. No! Nothing, not a word, they charged me 420$, “giving” me the wine at the price of the one I had ordered. And when I asked if they could call a taxi to bring us back to our hotel, the owner made me understand that my behaviour was normal considering where we were staying…. Trust me, there are for sure many other restaurants where they will be happy that you chose them. It’s just to bad that this owner hasn’t figured that out yet…. We look the same age, (early 50’s) maybe that’s why he’s still working and I’m retired…..More

Ultra-private, very high end service and experience. We had the treat of a server who was at the absolute top of his game in terms of serving guests. Nice little extras like courses to cleanse your palate and an amuse-bouche. The meals we ordered were...superb - whole snapper, tandoori wahoo (highly creative and delicious), sea bass, lobster thermidor. Presentation of the dishes, fantastic wine list…one could go on but just know this is “special” in every way. Be aware that a 20% service charge is added to your bill. I would prefer to make that decision myself, but they’ve made that choice for you. I would put Coyaba in the company of Parallel 23 at the Palms, Coco Bistro, Infiniti at Grace Bay Resort - definitely top 5.More

I have been to Coyaba a few times over the years, but I got to tell you its getting more and more expensive every time I go, and with so many other choices on the island I wont be going back. The lobster Thermidor was...just average, my wife had the whole fish and they charged $63 for it! She did love it though,but we should have asked as it was market price. I do love the ambiance there though. I was actually shocked when we got the bill and they charged 20% gratuity (no choice) for our table of 4. So with government tax of 12% and gratuity of 20%, be prepared to pay almost 1/3 more. on your bill. Not worth it in my opinion. I am not aware of any other restaurant that adds 20% tip.More

We chose Coyaba for our first dinner on the island. It was so good we pleaded for a reservation for our final night. The ambiance is lovely, the service was helpful and attentive with special touches such as an amuse-bouche and palate cleanser of yummy...sorbet. Favorite appetizers were the pork belly, served on a slab of pink Himalayan sea salt, and the tempura shrimp. Our favorite entrees were a Salmon special, the Tandoori Salmon, the Grouper, and the beef tenderloin. Desserts to die for were the Caribbean Key Lime Pie, Banana Caramel Xango, and Mango Creme Brûlée. We loved our meals at Coyabe!More

Their main line 649-946-5186 most times its easier to get an answer after 6pm. They typically answer really quickly so perhaps it was an issue with their phone line.

Hi, It depends upon which night, how many, and what time you want to dine. Just to be safe, I would book a reservation---but I don't believe they are snarly if you change your mind and cancel.
