2 for 1 at Mediterranean PERA Restaurant

In this brilliant, relaxed and friendly atmosphere you can taste the finest meals that will make you want to come back time and time again. Family and friends are at the heart of a Mediterranean meal, where the sharing of food and discussion around the table brings people closer together.

On offer is a good choice of freshly prepared seasonal food. You should expect warm, friendly service. They promise to do all they can to make your meal enjoyable and memorable for you.

One of the great pleasures of the eastern Mediterranean custom is its natural sense of hospitality, which often means that friends and family gather around a table sharing small savoury plates of food, called mezes.

However, the real attraction here is the traditional way of cooking on wood charcoals and includes dishes such as Lamb, chicken shish, mix kebab, charcoal grilled sea bass fillet, salmon & tuna and also a range of healthy salads scallop & shrimp salad, grill vegetable and halloumi salad.

The chefs use top quality ingredients to create their popular tasty dishes, served by the restaurant’s friendly staff.

    As the header says its a no brainer with a very remarkable decor and ambience. Very small however but good things come in small packages. The food tastes great and the spicy cheese they bring you as goodwill gesture in the beginning is awesomely delicious but spicy. A very distinct place I must say, very close to Highbury and Islington tube station and definitely very low key compared to the restaurants on Upper street. Recommended highly. Best of luck to the business owners and a enjoyable atmosphere and appetite for guests that would want to go and dine. "

    Nice little Turkish place. The food was good and the service was generally friendly.

    We had chosen this restaurant due to the fact that they were supposed to accept Tastecards on a Saturday. When we called earlier on in the day to book, we were told that there was a table available. We confirmed the time and table and then when we told the manager that we had a Tastecard, we were told that we couldn't use it. The justification was 'we already have other people using it and you must understand that we cannot accept too many' this was quite disappointing after advertising as being able to use Tastecard on a Saturday.

    The food was not a particularly reasonable price without using the card. Probably avoid on Saturdays. "

    We booked 20 mins before going on a Saturday evening and they gladly accommodated us with the card. Received complimentary bread, dips and olives while waiting for our food- not sure why as there was no delay but was very tasty so much appreciated! Starters (mezze) we're lovely and Cajun mussels are highly recommended, sauce was amazing! Boyfriend had the lamb durum which was a little dry but nice enough. Wine was nice and given lots of ice cold tap water- much needed in this weather! Will be returning, was glad we were treated totally as normal customers despite using the discount card on a Saturday evening. "

    The waiting staff were lovely and treated us with a free platter upon order as well which was very welcomed! As alluded to in my subject however, it was a crying shame about the curly hair that I found in my kofte. Given how intertwined it was in the meat, I can only assume it happened during prep and because the staff was so nice, I didn't have the heart to tell them. "

    I had dinner there last night and the food was excellent. It was a balmy evening and my date and I chose to sit outside - how often do you get a chance to do that in London - but this was a mistake because the road noise was a problem.

    The hostess was fully aware of my online booking, so their system works. Our order was speedily taken and drinks arrived shortly afterwards. As we got there before 7pm, we received free appetisers.

    We ordered a medley of starters and two different meze platters which we shared.

    I am not exaggerating when I say that the food could not be faulted. Not a single dish or morsel was average or bland; each was tasteful.

    As it was a date I was relieved whilst impressed and I'd happily go back...but sit inside. "

    The food was exceptional, very difficult to chose from the menu as there was so much I fancied. My husband's seafood platter was amazing, my char grilled lamb Shish was excellent. I only wished we had time/room for the desserts, which looked wonderful.

    A very reasonably priced wine list, house white starting at £13. "

    " Fantastic food! Simple, fresh, flavourful ingredients. We started with a filo pastry spinach and feta cheese, along with grilled goat cheese, both cooked to perfection. We then shared the meat and seafood mezes, which came with a wide variety of flavours, and they certainly didn't skimp on portion sizes! Everything was melt-in-your-mouth cooked to perfection, and it was difficult to decide what sauce to match with what piece of meat!

    The service was quick and friendly, the music and lighting were set at comfortable levels, no problem using the tastecard, and we were seated quickly. A flawless dining experience, and with a tastecard, for an amazing price!

    Highly recommended. "

    After arriving at the restaurant late and urgently needing the WC, the staff were brilliant at relaxing us and making us feel welcome immediately. We explained we only had an hour and they couldn't be more accommodating. We opted for shared mezes and mixed grill/lamb mains which were exceptional. As we were told the band started at 9PM at the Garage (5-10 min walk), we were a tad disappointed when upon arrival, we realised we could have had at least another half hour at Pera.
    Only regret was thinking this would be a quick in-out meal. You really need to give yourself time to take in the whole ambience and enjoy their outstanding food and service. We felt guilty about using our tastecard for what was an undeniable dining pleasure but gave a deserved 30% tip which was discretionary.
    Will definitely return when in town again and cannot recommend enough. "

    Having booked to see a show at the excellent Hen & Chickens theatre bar my wife and I together with 3 visitors from Canada headed for a tastecard restaurant in the area.

    It was boarded up, as was our second attempt.

    But the Pera was very much open and we were welcomed warmly by (I think) the lady owner.

    One of our Canadians found little she liked on the menu(!!!) but the owner chatted with her and came up with a chicken dish that the kitchen made especially for her and which she loved.

    A problem arose when one of our two tastecards were out of date. My wife had bought the wrong one with her. The owner agreed to accept it on this occasion for which we were very grateful.

    Apart from this, the food was excellent, the service charming and efficient without being overbearing. We will be back!! "

    " Have eaten here several times now, and always consistently good food, great atmosphere and attentive management and staff.

    The couple who run it really seem to know what makes a restaurant tick. Being in the trade myself, they possess qualities in service that is sadly almost nonexistent.


    As well as good food, it was always good value for money anyway, but being able to use tastecard, they really are giving it away.

    Recently taken friends who thought it was great. Pera is one not to miss! "

    I can genuinely say that this restaurant is AMAZING!!! I went here last night with my best mate and we were both in awe at the quality of food and how wonderfully welcome the staff were. It is very rare that I am both happy with the food and the service but this is was an exception. We were greeted with all smiles and had the choice to sit outside or inside, we choose to sit inside by the open door. We got a starter main and desert and a bottle of wine for less than £40.00!!!! We felt so bad paying only the bill as the service was so impeccable we paid a hefty tip! All in all we had the best time ever, and will certainly become regulars!!!
    Thanks to all the staff. "

    My husband and I booked a table at 8pm on a Friday evening. The restaurant was already full when we arrived but we were greeted immediately by the smiling manageress and found seats whilst we waited a short time for our table. The service remained very attentive and friendly throughout our meal. I tried the scallops and chorizo as a starter and sea bass as a main course, while my husband had the grilled goat’s cheese followed by the slow cooked lamb shoulder. Everything was well prepared and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and we will definitely be returning. We have had lots of good experiences with our new tastecard but this was definitely the best so far. "

    Just had a brilliant pre-Union Chapel meal in Pera. Staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. I had Hummus and Spicy Lamb to start and then the mixed grill. My friend had grilled prawns and then a chicken main.

    Add in a nice bottle of Merlot and the bill came to a few pence over £29. Brilliant! Just make sure you tip on the pre-discount price :)

    Would happily return to Pera and even at regular prices it offers value for money and very tasty food. "

    Can’t praise the place highly enough, exceptionally friendly staff and the food is really good and cheap and that’s before the tastecard reduction!

    Delicious food and we have been back since even though it means a 30 min cycle each way.

    As the header says its a no brainer with a very remarkable decor and ambience. Very small however but good things come in small packages. The food tastes great and the spicy cheese they bring you as goodwill gesture in the beginning is awesomely delicious but spicy. A very distinct place I must say, very close to Highbury and Islington tube station and definitely very low key compared to the restaurants on Upper street. Recommended highly. Best of luck to the business owners and a enjoyable atmosphere and appetite for guests that would want to go and dine. "

    Nice little Turkish place. The food was good and the service was generally friendly.

    We had chosen this restaurant due to the fact that they were supposed to accept Tastecards on a Saturday. When we called earlier on in the day to book, we were told that there was a table available. We confirmed the time and table and then when we told the manager that we had a Tastecard, we were told that we couldn't use it. The justification was 'we already have other people using it and you must understand that we cannot accept too many' this was quite disappointing after advertising as being able to use Tastecard on a Saturday.

    The food was not a particularly reasonable price without using the card. Probably avoid on Saturdays. "

    We booked 20 mins before going on a Saturday evening and they gladly accommodated us with the card.

Starters (mezze) we're lovely and Cajun mussels are highly recommended, sauce was amazing! Boyfriend had the lamb durum which was a little dry but nice enough. Wine was nice and given lots of ice cold tap water- much needed in this weather!

Given how intertwined it was in the meat, I can only assume it happened during prep and because the staff was so nice, I didn't have the heart to tell them. "

    I had dinner there last night and the food was excellent. It was a balmy evening and my date and I chose to sit outside - how often do you get a chance to do that in London - but this was a mistake because the road noise was a problem.

    The hostess was fully aware of my online booking, so their system works. Our order was speedily taken and drinks arrived shortly afterwards. As we got there before 7pm, we received free appetisers.

    We ordered a medley of starters and two different meze platters which we shared.

    I am not exaggerating when I say that the food could not be faulted. Not a single dish or morsel was average or bland; each was tasteful.

    As it was a date I was relieved whilst impressed and I'd happily go back...but sit inside. "

    The food was exceptional, very difficult to chose from the menu as there was so much I fancied. My husband's seafood platter was amazing, my char grilled lamb Shish was excellent. I only wished we had time/room for the desserts, which looked wonderful.

    A very reasonably priced wine list, house white starting at £13. "

    " Fantastic food! Simple, fresh, flavourful ingredients. We started with a filo pastry spinach and feta cheese, along with grilled goat cheese, both cooked to perfection. We then shared the meat and seafood mezes, which came with a wide variety of flavours, and they certainly didn't skimp on portion sizes! Everything was melt-in-your-mouth cooked to perfection, and it was difficult to decide what sauce to match with what piece of meat!

    The service was quick and friendly, the music and lighting were set at comfortable levels, no problem using the tastecard, and we were seated quickly. A flawless dining experience, and with a tastecard, for an amazing price!

    Highly recommended. "

    " Excellent food, great service and fantastic atmosphere.
    Went for my partner's birthday after seeing all the positive reviews here- you should believe them all! It was a very enjoyable experience from start to finish. Excellent value for food- we both had two courses for under £20. I will definitely be returning. "

    We highly recommend to eat out in Pera restaurant. It was great experience, very good quality for decent price. Good variety of starters and I love meat meze. Excellent service and they even give us complimentary olive and pita bread.
    Definetly we will go back and will be one of our favourite places in London. "

    First time there but probably not the last.
    Good place, good food and good service.
    There was a birthday celebration behind us so it was a little bit noisy, but otherwise everything was perfect. "

  • Wilz said: "Outstanding everything.
    After arriving at the restaurant late and urgently needing the WC, the staff were brilliant at relaxing us and making us feel welcome immediately. We explained we only had an hour and they couldn't be more accommodating. We opted for shared mezes and mixed grill/lamb mains which were exceptional. As we were told the band started at 9PM at the Garage (5-10 min walk), we were a tad disappointed when upon arrival, we realised we could have had at least another half hour at Pera.
    Only regret was thinking this would be a quick in-out meal. You really need to give yourself time to take in the whole ambience and enjoy their outstanding food and service. We felt guilty about using our tastecard for what was an undeniable dining pleasure but gave a deserved 30% tip which was discretionary.
    Will definitely return when in town again and cannot recommend enough. "

    " This restaurant is just around the corner from me and I didn't even know it was there! I dined there with my husband and we absolutely loved it. We were so well looked after and we loved all the little extras we got such as bread and dips and free tea after. We both had the mixed grill and it was really tasty. I also love the restaurant atmosphere. It's nice and cosy inside. I thought it was amazing value for money and that's even before I discovered that it was on Tastecard! I'm taking my sister there tomorrow and it has definitely made my favourite restaurants list. :-) "

  • Rob said: "What a find!
    Having booked to see a show at the excellent Hen & Chickens theatre bar my wife and I together with 3 visitors from Canada headed for a tastecard restaurant in the area.

    It was boarded up, as was our second attempt.

    But the Pera was very much open and we were welcomed warmly by (I think) the lady owner.

    One of our Canadians found little she liked on the menu(!!!) but the owner chatted with her and came up with a chicken dish that the kitchen made especially for her and which she loved.

    A problem arose when one of our two tastecards were out of date. My wife had bought the wrong one with her. The owner agreed to accept it on this occasion for which we were very grateful.

    Apart from this, the food was excellent, the service charming and efficient without being overbearing. We will be back!! "

    " Have eaten here several times now, and always consistently good food, great atmosphere and attentive management and staff.

    The couple who run it really seem to know what makes a restaurant tick. Being in the trade myself, they possess qualities in service that is sadly almost nonexistent.


    As well as good food, it was always good value for money anyway, but being able to use tastecard, they really are giving it away.

    Recently taken friends who thought it was great. Pera is one not to miss! "

    I can genuinely say that this restaurant is AMAZING!!! I went here last night with my best mate and we were both in awe at the quality of food and how wonderfully welcome the staff were. It is very rare that I am both happy with the food and the service but this is was an exception. We were greeted with all smiles and had the choice to sit outside or inside, we choose to sit inside by the open door. We got a starter main and desert and a bottle of wine for less than £40.00!!!! We felt so bad paying only the bill as the service was so impeccable we paid a hefty tip! All in all we had the best time ever, and will certainly become regulars!!!
    Thanks to all the staff. "

    My husband and I booked a table at 8pm on a Friday evening. The restaurant was already full when we arrived but we were greeted immediately by the smiling manageress and found seats whilst we waited a short time for our table. The service remained very attentive and friendly throughout our meal. I tried the scallops and chorizo as a starter and sea bass as a main course, while my husband had the grilled goat’s cheese followed by the slow cooked lamb shoulder. Everything was well prepared and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and we will definitely be returning. We have had lots of good experiences with our new tastecard but this was definitely the best so far. "

    Just had a brilliant pre-Union Chapel meal in Pera. Staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. I had Hummus and Spicy Lamb to start and then the mixed grill. My friend had grilled prawns and then a chicken main.

    Add in a nice bottle of Merlot and the bill came to a few pence over £29. Brilliant! Just make sure you tip on the pre-discount price :)

    Would happily return to Pera and even at regular prices it offers value for money and very tasty food. "

    We were going to a gig at the Islington Assembly Room (directly opposite) and decided to use our tastecard and eat at Pera.

    Can’t praise the place highly enough, exceptionally friendly staff and the food is really good and cheap and that’s before the tastecard reduction!

    Delicious food and we have been back since even though it means a 30 min cycle each way.

    Oh, and they do killer homemade cakes, amazing! "
