This informal Mediterranean restaurant and café sits toward the Highbury & Islington end of Upper Street, almost opposite Islington Town Hall. There's even a small area outside so you can have a coffee taking in the sights, if that's your thing.
Most, though, head inside for classic east-Med dishes such as spinach and feta borek, houmous, couscous salad and smoked aubergine alongside charcoal-grilled meats and fish, oven-baked garlic mussels and a variety of iskenders. Meze platters also feature.
Set menus, group menus and 'business lunches' offer further variety.

Disgraceful restaurant described a platter and delivered barely enough good for 1 person at a cost of food that could pay for 2-3 people. I ordered for myself and my young children through Deliveroo and now that ive gone online i can see other people that have had the same experiences! avoid this restaurant if you don't want yo waste your money!
Delightful! My and my friends experience at Pera could really not have been better… the restaurant is decorated beautifully (especially the Mediterranean toilet’s!) and the service was great, it had a real homely family feel to it. Happy to say the food didn’t let the side down either…my salmon and my friend’s lamb were absolutely delicious and unbelievably good value for such reasonably priced food. I will be hurrying back here again soon!
It was our first visit to Pera this evening. As residents of Angel, we've been to most restaurants that Upper Street has to offer. We arrived at Pera 15 minutes late for our reservation but the hostess could not have been more accommodating and welcoming. We ordered scallops and the mixed sausage for starters, followed by the slow-cooked lamb shank and mixed grill for mains. We ordered a nice bottle of Viogner. All were delicious, as we're the complimentary warm bread, feta and olives pre-starters. We personally found the food to be much be better than comparable offerings in Angel (Mem & Laz, Galipolli etc.) and the service was much better. The staff at Pera are incredibly friendly, the service is fast and the food is well above average at a very reasonable price. We'll certainly go back.
