With so many chain restaurants available to Erie, this is a wonderful place to go for something you might find in the bigger cities. So many choices that you can't find on a standard menu. Small restaurant, but service and atmosphere are very enjoyable.

A modest exterior and decor, however the food is to die for! The service it attentive, the pita and oil at your table is addictive, and your taste-buds will thank you! Portion sizes are average to generous, I always end up with a take home box. Make reservations if you plan to go on a Friday or Saturday night, especially in the colder months where seating is limited to indoors. In the summer months tables are available outside to enjoy the warm evening air. This is a great restaurant to enjoy an evening out with family and friends! I recommend any of the platter options for a variety of delights, my husband would recommend their steak special (when they have it). Give Petra’s a try, you’ll be glad you did!

Petra is one of the BEST restaurants located in Erie, PA. A wonderful place to go for a relaxing dining experience. The Eastern Mediterranean Cuisine is a vegetarian's delight (actually a delight to anyone with discerning taste). Everything on the menu is so good! Two tasty appetizers are the Raspberry Almond Brie en Fillo and the Three Cheese Fatayer. Seafood lovers will love the Salmon Alexandria. The dinner platters are wonderful for those who would like to try a little bit of several items. Several Kabobs are offered (even one for vegetarians) as well as a selection of pasta & couscous dishes. One of my favorite dishes is the Mucklouba, which features seared eggplant over a bed of rice along with a sauce of sauteed tomatoes, peppers, onions & garlic, topped with almond slices. For those who are not vegetarian seasoned beef, chicken or shrimp can be added. Steaks & Chops are also on the menu. Soup, sandwiches, salads, lunch platters, smoothies, & a kid's menu are also available. The deserts are mouth-watering. Try the Creme Brulee, Peanut Butter Pie, Baklava -- writing this is making me hungry. I'm going back again this week.
