Asian fusion and oysters. Full bar. Reliably good. Surprisingly located in strip mall but decent decor. Can get crowded and loud. Terrace in summer without view but quieter than inside when crowded. Crunchy oysters, Ahi tuna and Panko cod are the things to order.

I love the menu and the food at Pearl but I don't enjoy having dinner where I have to yell so my dining companion can hear me. I wish they could do something about the noise level when they are super busy (which is most of the time!). We mostly get take-out because of the noise. They do have some... More

My wife and I stopped by for a beer and snack. We had the Tom Yum Soup and the Hanoi Nems as well as a beer and martini. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, the food was very good.

We were taken here by friends for dinner. As soon as we walked in I knew we were in for a treat. The venue felt great. Cosy and clean and I could smell beautiful Asian herbs being used in the kitchen. We were greeted by owner Russell and took our seats. Specials were explained and we ordered wines and cocktails....

After not visiting the Pearl for too many months, we were so pleased that it continued to meet our expectations. The menu, including the gluten free menu, offers a nice variety of selections from vegetarian and fish to well prepared meats. Food and wine are a good value for superior quality.

We have enjoyed Pearl ever since it first opened. And even with a new chef owner it has kept up its high style and favored classics. You can't go wrong with the Asian style ribs that smell of cinnamon and fall off the bone. Their crab cakes are intensely delicious. Cocktails are very well prepared. The atmosphere is buzzing like... More

Pearl is a mainstay in Peterborough and for good reason. The food is good and the service is decent. It doesn't pretend to be any more than it is which is an Asian fusion bistro with a nice oyster bar and regular bar. I've been here a couple of times now after having avoided it for a very long time.... More

I had not been in Peterborough for years and came to spend the night for a little R&R. It being Monday most places were closed except for the local pub and this joint in a strip mall. The menu looked intriguing so we decided to give it a try. This was definitely the right decision. They have a handful of... More
