I regularly visit Pera with different friends. It's a great down to earth place with great friendly service that is attentive but not pushy. The food is wonderful, they do a great mixed meze platter. Portion sizes are great, and I rarely have room for dessert, but these are worth trying. It's a... read more

Fresh Mediterranean fare served straight from the grill. Some of the best hummus and pita around, as well as other generously portioned starters. Always served wonderfully hot and tastes authentic. Have enjoyed complimentary sides and a drink on two occasions, courtesy of attentive staff. Tastecard accepted. Will continue to eat here, and have introduced to family and friends!

I went with a friend on a weekday evening. The restaurant is a bit shabby looking & the ladies loo needs urgent TLC. The food was fine but I've had better. The staff were friendly enough but the place lacked a buzz, had zero atmosphere so despite having a pleasant evening we won't be returning. The two of us had... More

I been going to Pera almost daily as I live nearby and love taking my girl and my friends and family there for lunch and dinner. I love the food staff and atmosphere. The variety in the menu is great and very good quality. I met the head chef personally on occasions.

Staying in the Hilton at the end of the very trendy Islington Upper Street I duly did my TA research to find a nice place to eat on Friday night for me and my lovely wife. We debated about going to Ottolenghi but the communal tables put us off and so La Pera with all those wonderful reviews was it.... More

My partner brought me here to celebrate a promotion. We didn't have much expectation of the place but the courses arrived with perfect timing. For starters we ordered a trio of hummus, yogurt, and artichoke with warm and tasty bread. The house white wine accompanied our meal was pretty good as well. The next course were our mains. The chicken... More

If you happen to pass by Angel do not miss the experience at Pera. The restaurant is a Mediterranean style one (do not get misled by some guides indicating it as a Turkish restaurant). Anil, one of the owners, is an extremely friendly guy. First of all he took care of moving us into one of the best tables and... More
