Fabulous food. I had a mixed shish which was perfect . My friend enjoyed the mixed grill. Great value and portions were just right. Waiters were attentive but not overly and we stayed around 3 hours, never feeling rushed. This is somewhere I will definitely revisit.

Pera has been a regular haunt for me for a while now. From the second I stepped foot in there, I've always been treated like a queen when I visit. The chefs are relentlessly spot on with every dish as well as presentation. The wine is great as are the cocktails. The decor is so cosy, beautifully lit and romantic... More

Decided to check Pera out after reading all the complimentary TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Surrounded by the corporate-monolith and expensive chain restaurants on Upper Street this independent eatery deserves our support. The staff were nice and friendly, and the mediterranean grill cuisine was above par and perfectly cooked using quality ingredients. Our meal was also very good value... More

Walking down Upper Street, we decided to try Pera, and were very pleased we did. It's a very friendly, well run restaurant serving excellent quality Eastern Mediterranean food at reasonable prices and with friendly, efficient staff. While we didn't find the main course of mixed grill outstanding, possibly because there was just too much of it, the starters we chose... More

We visited this restaurant for a quick meal before a gig at the assembly rooms and were shocked at how good it was. Food was really good and came in generous portions. Above all the staff were super friendly, efficient and attentive. Superb value for money. Very glad we found this place and will certainly visit again.
