Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester

This three-Michelin-starred restaurant is special at any time of year.

Clos Maggiore


Regularly voted the world’s most romantic restaurant, this Covent Garden venue renowned for its Provencal-inspired dishes. Carnivores will love the foie gras and quail breast terrine, and the herb-smoked Wagyu beef, while the vegetarian menu features delights such as chargrilled asparagus with grated truffle. 

Boisdale of Mayfair

The latest opening in the Boisdale group, this cozy, candlelit restaurant near Marble Arch is the perfect hideaway for couples looking for a romantic evening free from the hassle of set menus. Listen to live piano music while you enjoy decadent dishes such as Russian oscietra caviar, fruits de mer or steak tartare. The Hanky Panky cocktail seems an appropriately amorous choice from the drinks menu, and don't forget to save room for a naughty dessert, such as the chocolate and caramel marquise.

La Poule au Pot

Nestled in a charming corner spot on Belgravia's Ebury Street, this rustic French restaurant has a menu of classic dishes on offer include coquilles St Jacques, magret de canard and, of course, the ultimate mousse au chocolat.

Kaspar's Seafood Bar and Grill at The Savoy

Guests can enjoy a delicious menu featuring cured salmon, slow-cooked beef and a chocolate and clementine gateau.

Launceston Place

Hidden away on a peaceful Kensington backstreet, Launceston Place has recently welcomed a talented new head chef, Ben Murphy. 

The Ivy West Street, Covent Garden

An undisputed classic, The Ivy has always been a favorite for romance, and in its centenary year, it's a more special choice than ever. 

L'Escargot

This Soho institution has welcomed loved-up couples since its establishment in 1927. It will continue the tradition this year with a menu of French classics including its signature sharing pot of snails, fresh oysters, and duck cassoulet. Add a lively note to your celebrations with a glass (or, better still, a bottle) of Laurent-Perrier Champagne.

Orrery

Based in a converted stable block, this bright and airy French restaurant is located on Marylebone High Street. Always finish with delicious macarons for two.

Berners Tavern


Walls lined with photographic portraits and candlelit tables set the sophisticated tone for an evening of romance at Jason Atherton's beautifully decorated Fitzrovia restaurant. Dine on excellent British cuisine--think Cornish cod, Scottish sirloin steak and roasted cauliflower with pearl barley--and sip punchy cocktails; we like the quince and lemon-sherbet flavors of the Prosecco-topped "Room with a View."
