Authentic cuisine and a commitment to great service is what makes Pera the talk of Edinburgh. This beloved restaurant focuses on the traditional, offering diners flavours that have defined Turkish cuisine throughout the centuries. Specialising in mangal (Turkish barbecue) and meze, this restaurant has something for every diner whether they are a vegetarian, meat lover or a dedicated foodie. You’ll find the restaurant down Bonnington’s Elm Row, just moments from the Edinburgh Playhouse, Regent Gardens and bustling New Town. Recommended dishes here at Pera include charcoal-grilled main courses such as tavuk sis, kuzu kaburga (lamb ribs) or their vegetarian sebzeli kebab. On the other hand, meze like halloumi and sucuk, calamari and hummus with homemade pastrami are also not to be missed. Discover more by booking ahead at this local favourite.
A delightful experience from start to finish - divine food and wonderful service from the lovely owner/chef. We think it is the best Turkish food we have ever had, and we will be back soon!
Small initimate restaurant, high quality home cooked food. Highly recommend this dining experience. Would definately go back and as not licenced you take your own choice of drink for small corkage charge.
Fantastic fresh cooked authentic Turkish food. Small intimate surroundings with good atmosphere. Excellent menu using quality meats. Mixed grill was beautiful. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Bring your own bottle arrangement - wine was put in fridge and served by staff. Highly recommended
