Thought We Were In Turkey

This restaurant is a must if you are in Bournemouth and eating out. The restaurant is clean and intimate with a wonderful aroma of the cooking which is done near to where you sit. The food and wine is excellent and choice exceptional for a small restaurant. The proprietor and staff were lovely and... read more

We're off to Turkey in a couple of months. In order to wet our appetite a bit we decided to give this place a go. The charcoal grill is on view in the restaurant, filling it with wonderful smells. If you want authentic, well cooked, reasonable turkish food give this place a go. We loved it. L8rs Xx

The food was freshly prepared in the kitchen visible to the restaurant. You could taste the individual ingredients - no masking of tastes by overbearing sauces. Felt like home made food does that involves chopping of fresh vegetables - cooked with love. Stark contrast to a lot of Turkish restaurants I have visited.

Had a quiet meal, service good and food nice, would have liked a little more but acid test is that I would go back again. Good value with interesting menu, nice decor

We had hoped to eat traditional Turkish food and it was embarrassingly bad! Grilled hallumi was iced cold and did not stay on pan more than 10 seconds, served with a slice of cucumber and tomato cut in two! Poor presentation, poor taste but priced more than your average similar dish in other Turkish or Greek restaurants where this is... More

A small intimate restaurant serving traditional Turkish dishes such as Guvec and various grilled main courses. The kitchen can be seen from your table, so you get to see the dishes being prepared and cooked.

We visited Pera Rose late on a Saturday evening for a dinner for two. The setting is cosy, and beautifully lit to give you the Turkish vibe with authentic carpets and artefacts to add to the feel. Our waiter was very attentive and I loved being able to watch the food being made as the kitchen is slightly open to... More

We were surprised that for quite a lot of the evening (Friday) we were the only people in the restaurant! It's got a lovely atmosphere and authentic Turkish food, you should give it a try, we'll be back for sure.

Really glad my partner and I decided to go to this restaurant. The food was so fresh and tasty. We had halloumi, meatballs, chicken kebabs and a couple of salads and all were fantastic. We had turkish beer and house red. Both great and reasonably priced! Staff were relaxed but attentive, the music was authentic turkish which I liked and... More

Visited Pera Rose on Good Friday, the restaurant was not busy which did make us question entering (we wondered why no one else was eating there), but that should not (and did not) put us off. We were given a wonderful warm welcome and advised of some specials on the menu, namely the Turkish casseroles. Ordered our food, which was... More
