businessday-icon

It is amazing and unfathomable how a place as exquisite as Orela Restaurant and Bar could be so hidden from the plying eyes of many, like a green snake taking cover under green grass. Orela, located at 114 Awolowo Road, seems be a secret best kept in Lagos fashioned to hide customers’ away from the hustle and bustle of Awolowo cluster in Ikoyi.

It could be very easy for unobserving fellow, to mistake the building that housed Orela for security consulting edifice and thus, pass by a place one might not be able to resist visiting again having tasted the wonderful vibes created to pamper customers. But not for ardent hospitality seeker who will do whatever it takes to find suitable hang out spots. To such fellows, Orela is not a hidden place.

The entire setting of Orela is truthfully crushing and positively seducing. From the entrance of the bar where a smartly dressed young lady is positioned to welcome customers with warmness and smile and recommends any dishes on the menu to customers; to the astonishing couch appealing to customers to have a sit; and a sit the customers must have once step into Orela. The cleanliness of its environment is second to none. The gold like soreness of the atmosphere formed by the dim warm light would definitely have a tender consequence on the customers. Little wonder it is company’s CEOs and the likes that dine and wine at Orela. Politicians, Oil and Gas Chairmen, Bankers, Lawyers, Fashion designers, Singers, Nollywood stars are some of the ‘heavy weights’ who find in Orela home away from home. It is a place where clients can network and have Business meetings with free Wi-Fi access throughout the restaurant.

With a capacity to serve up to 46 people seated and 20 people standing, Orela’s courteous and professional staff can create unforgettable memories for clients and their guests that will last a life time.  Inspired by the elegant charm of a classic grill house, Orela creates the perfect setting for dining experience or social events-charitable or corporate  with sophisticatedly laid-back sensation; combining class, comfort, intimacy and diversity.
