It’s always fiesta time at COYA Monte-Carlo... Drawing inspiration from the oldest bars in Lima, the Pisco Bar provides a zestful setting for any occasion. Our expert mixologists are always on hand to shake up something from the vast selection of COYA signatures, Peruvian classics and localised specials. Guests can also enjoy the unique sounds of COYA music resident DJs every evening along with special weekly events with guest DJs.
Victoria Vallenilla was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and grew up on the Caribbean island of Margarita, where she had her first taste of culinary inspiration.
Her love of food came from her nanny, who she thought of as a second grandmother and still believes to be the best cook she’s ever known. For Victoria, reproducing her recipes is the best tribute she could possibly pay her. Victoria draws her inspiration from her childhood memories, adapting them to modern techniques and flavours while staying true to traditional South American cuisine.
After outstanding achievements at hospitality school and in cooking competitions, Victoria worked at the prestigious Le Vistamar at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo for three years, first under chef Joël Garault then chef Benoit Witz. She then headed to La Trattoria to hone her craft under Alain Ducasse. Her passion for the far-flung led her to join the team at COYA Monte-Carlo in 2018, where she was able to explore fusion food reflecting both her childhood and travels. As the years have passed, the young chef has risen steadily through the ranks. Now in 2021, her determination, passion and skill have seen her named Chef de Brigade at COYA Monte-Carlo! An impressive story so far, full of promise for the future.
