Pero Restaurant & Lounge

Pero Restaurant & Lounge's Chef Pero gathers traditional East African dishes from Ethiopia and Eritrea, peppering in a few of his own signature recipes to design a menu that reflects modern Africa's ever-evolving epicurean trends. He sprinkles colourful powders and pungent herbs in exact pinches, imbuing dishes with layers of aromatic spices without overwhelming the senses or accidentally creating a low-pressure system.

Chef Pero's menu—which includes beef, vegetarian dishes, and combination platters, as well as a small glossary explaining their spices and injera—brings the flavours of Africa to life in a dining room covered in photos depicting the origins of African food. A cabana anchors the African theme with carved wooden benches, baskets, and gauzy white curtains. Live jazz ensembles serenade patrons with melodies during select dinner services and special events held in the Sotto Pero lounge.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I will definitely be back.
Joanna · October 24, 2012
It was a lovely evening, for sure we'll be back, both for food and music!
Linda G. · October 21, 2012
The service was great. They took the time to explain the food to us, thus making for a great experience. We liked the "dividers" between tables.
