My wife and I visited Pera Rose on the evening of Monday December 1st. We chose Pera Rose having read Trip Advisor reviews. It was around 8pm and it was empty and we were the only customers all evening. Despite that we received a smiling welcome and it was good to see the charcoal being prepared and lit in the... More

This is a fine restaurant but for the money it is not as good as the cheaper Saray further along. The sea bass and salad was very good, but cost considerably more than at their cheaper rival. I found the rice to be a little soggy and the traditional Turkish desert had too much honey, therefore also tasted a bit... More

We were advised on the menu by our really helpful and friendly server. All three courses were excellently prepared, tasty and well cooked. The wine and the draught bottled beer were also of a good standard. A very relaxing and enjoyable experience that did not break the bank.

Visited last evening. Restaurant quiet but we had a superb meal with excellent service from the lovely waiter! :) The "special" menu meal for two was excellent value at £30 with tasty starters and plentiful supplies of both chicken and lamb served with salads and rice. We have passed this place many times and now cant understand why we haven't... More

We had planned to go to the Italian up the road, parked nearer the Pera Rose and decided to try it. A good choice, friendly service, very clean restaurant and jolly good food added to delicious red house wine, what more do you want, wife even wanted to buy the Turkish lighting!! Try it if you're in the area

Pera Rose is a very good Mediterranean restaurant. My mom and I are both American, and have had plenty of Turkish cuisine, and this is right at the top of list for us. The lamb and vegetables were fresh with unique spices and cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable and friendly. This little nook also offers an intimate view... More

We booked this restaurant through a discount website and were looking forward to some good turkish food, given previous reviews, however we were very disappointed. The portions were small and bland (I am not even a big eater). For example, the dips we had for a starter were tiny and came with a small amount of bland slightly stale chunks... More

If you keep your gaze to the inside of this little gem you would be forgiven for thinking you were definitively somewhere other than Bournemouth. From the moment you enter you know you are going to eat well. From the selection of starters to my own Guvec this was good honest home cooking, warmly served with pride.
