We had been to a concert at the Islington Assembly Rue ooms and thanks to a logistical mix up had not managed to eat beforehand. The gig was brilliant (Fish btw) and we emerged starving hungry at near 11pm. We rushed over to the nearest restaurant (Pera is right across the road) where the last few diners were finishing up...

I went here with friends to have farewell dinner after (the first) 6 months in London. The place was very nice and the staff very kind. Food quite good, not wonderful, but enjoyable. The waiter opened the bottle of prosecco silently, the right way to open it! I was pleasantly surprised! Nice place where to stay with friends!

Went to pera as a result of a taste card offer. Very unusual system of offering a 2-4-1 discount only if you order a starter and main (which they don't tell you about in advance). As a result, after ordering, we had to choose an additional 4 starters which made the meal unnecessarily expensive. The food was well cooked but... More

Love this place. Good food, friendly service, great price, cosy, relaxed restaurant. On a recent visit I asked if they had baileys, as was debating a baileys coffee after dinner. I decided against the coffee, but after we'd paid - they brought us two baileys anyway - for free! Also my number one choice for breakfast on upper street.

During a recent stay in Islington we were thrown in utter chaos and confusion when deciding where to eat. There was a huge selection of restaurants to choose from and the fact that so many were independent establishments made the task of pinpointing a place even more difficult. We eventually opted for Pera. The restaurant itself was cute and the... More

This is a busy and seemingly disorganised restaurant which nevertheless is quite fun. However the food is really only average and the service on the Friday night that we visited was not particularly friendly or fast. The Chicken Guvech was full of tender breast but rather drowned by the sauce which masked the meat. Salmon fillet was tasty and the... More

I'm not sure why this place is rated so high. The food is ok but nothing out of this world. Staff is in a rush almost rude. Decor is tacky and last of any taste. Wine list is as rich as the Sahara desert. And I was sitting by the entrance which they seem to don't give a damn about... More

Just as good as everyone said it was. Beautifully cooked, tasty plentiful food. The meat was extremely tender. Good choice on menu and able to bet a table without booking at 8.30 on Friday.
