    Orela may be bizarrely situated above a flower shop on one of Ikoyi’s busier streets, but don’t be perturbed by the nondescript entrance. Persevere past the flower shop to the second floor and you’ll arrive at Orela.

    Food-wise the menu draws inspiration from all over the globe. Food ranges in price from N2000 for a club sandwich through to N6000 for a barbecue-glazed rack of beef ribs. European dishes like spaghetti Bolognese, pizza and burgers sit alongside North African dishes like lamb tagine. There are even a couple of local specialties like Nigerian peppered snails or the delightfully alliterative Yam Yum Yums. Portions are on the generous side, so be careful not to over-order.

    Decor is somewhere between Arabian boudoir and late 80’s nightclub, with a small raised platform at one end serving as dance floor during private events, and a padded red velvet booth for those looking for a little ‘VIP’ treatment. The range of spirits is reasonable, and there is also a range of red and white wines and freshly mixed cocktails.

    Music is a range of African pop, hip-hop and R&B. Saturdays between 3-6pm the bar has live piano music whilst 3-6pm Sundays hosts an afternoon tea. It’s a pleasant enough spot for an evening meal or a pre club drink (convenient for Rhapsody or Qlock clubs). Staff are chatty and attentive.

    Orela opens its doors from 12.30 to 10.30 every evening, and events can also be catered for.
