    Scallops with Jalapeño lime butter and butterbeans

    "Foodie Heaven"

    Finally got a chance to try La Perla for dinner. It definitely did not disappoint.


    We started with the figs with goat cheese (which I highly recommend) along with the octopus.

    Both were cooked to perfection. After, we ordered the duck carnitas and whole fish.

    Both dishes were also perfection and the flavors were far above and beyond

    what you would find in a small coastal town.


    I would expect such cuisine in New York, but La Perla exceeded any Spanish dishes I have

    ever eaten. Definitely plan to visit for dinner the next time you are in Beaufort.

    Bavette Steak with Ramp chimichurri, parsnip puree, carrot romesco


    Every dish was flawless - full of flavor, perfectly paired together to create a delightful dining experience.

    The staff was friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was fun, unique, but not obtrusive.

    The cochinita pibil was perfectly laced with melting fat to make it a mouth-watering offering of pork,

    and the fried plantains that came with it were crystal gems bursting with flavor - crispy and salty

    on the outside, with melt-in-your-mouth banana sweetness on the inside.

    The tilefish special was perfectly cooked and paired with an excellent avocado pineapple salsa

    that complimented the sweetness of that fish.

    We've been to Husk in Charleston, and this joined that lovely establishment as one

    of our top 5 restaurants we've been to.

    "Smart flavor profiles"

    Visited La Perla at the recommendation of a close, food-obsessed friend.

    We were so impressed by the level of cooking, the smart flavor profiles, the warm service—

    and it's a welcome step-up from the area's grills and chain restaurants.

    La Perla is run by a couple—Jessica and Kevin—who work at the restaurant every day it's open.

    Their presence and dedication makes all the difference—and it made our dining experience special.

    We felt like we were being welcomed to a friend's house for dinner. We talked about that

    dinner every day for the next week...and we're excited about our next visit.

    The fried shishito peppers, wings, pork belly-arugula salad, local dayboat grouper, ceviche, octopus,

    creme brûlée, and almond cake—all fantastic!
