I had wondered what was going to be built in this old building located on King William Street.  Electra house has been renovated to give three levels of dining and function space.  On the ground floor is a beer garden and bar where it is great for a few drinks and nibbles.  First level is the restaurant, Olea and the top floor is a function area which consists of two separate function rooms.  Olea has been advertised as a world class fine dining restaurant.

La Rambla Tapas Bar

La Rambla Tapas Bar

There is a Tapas Bar down on Peel Street and it is called La Rambla Tapas Bar.  Amongst all the pubs and bars on Peel Street, this one stood out.  Upon walking into the bar we were welcomed by friendly staff.  High ceilings, bar stools and mirrors on the walls, gave an industrial feel.  There was an upstairs section, as well as outside tables.  We opted to sit inside this time.

La Madeleine

La Madeleine

Well I am excited that another Parisian cafe has opened up and it is on The Parade.  They have a great range of patisseries and pies, I can't wait to go back and try some of their crepes, which looked very tempting.  One of the best things is that breakfasts are served all day, 7 days a week.  Whether you are a morning or afternoon person you can always come here and enjoy a taste of Paris's patisserie.
