If you are in a relationship, St Valentine’s Day is a time that either fills you with excitement, or fills you with dread…
The most romantic day of the year is also the ultimate ‘date night’, and that means everything must be perfect for you and your love. You can’t go wrong with a top class meal and a bottle of champagne, so we’ve hand-picked four of London’s most romantic restaurants which simply glow with luxury, love and charm.
Sumptuously decorated and expertly tended by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton, Berners Tavern is a classic haunt for loved up couples with elegant sensibilities. Situated in London’s Fitzrovia, it is the perfect spot for a pre or post theatre meal, or to simply indulge in an hours-long culinary treat. Start with a cocktail or a glass of vintage wine, then work your way through seafood courses, salads, aperitifs and grass-fed steak, before sharing an exquisite dessert for two.
Not many restaurants can boast 360 views across London, while you relax with a glass of champagne and enjoy the live music floating over from across the terrace. This Valentine’s Day, the restaurant is treating guests to a firework display as well as its usual high quality service, expertly chosen wine list, and divine menu.
Park Lane is probably the most exclusive address in London, so where better to treat your beloved to an unforgettable Valentine’s evening? Galvin at Windows is located on the top floor of the Park Lane Hilton and boasts spectacular views across London, as well as some of the finest food in the country. Michelin starred chef Chris Galvin is known for choosing only the best ingredients, and each plate is as beautiful as it is delicious. Ask for a table overlooking a favourite London landmark, for added romance.
Cruising down the Thames on a luxury boat, watching the city lights twinkle in the water as you float by landmarks such as the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament. If you want to make this Valentine’s Day extra memorable, Bateaux London is the way to go. Cruises are available during the day or the night, and include live entertainment plus a gourmet meal. Perfection.
