Looking for somewhere to romance a food-lover this Valentine’s Day? Here are our Top 10 Valentine’s Day restaurantsâ€¦
1. OXO Brasserie
OXO Brasserie’s Vegas Valentine’s evening comes complete with Vegas wedding chapel and a performance from a Chinese Elvis. The beautiful views and aphrodisiac menu are sure to get you in the mood for love.
2. Petersham Nurseries

3. Kerbisher & Malt
Does your Valentine love fish and chips? Take them to trendy chippy Kerbisher & Malt for a Valentine’s dinner including two heart-shaped fishcakes, a portion of chips to share and a bottle of fizz.
4. Clos Maggiore
Clos Maggiore was named Most Romantic Restaurant by Hardens 2012 Restaurant Guide, so it’s the ultimate place to woo your loved one. The conservatory with views of the stars obviously does the trick – the restaurant sees at least one proposal a week.
One lucky diner at Gilgamesh will win a diamond worth more than £1,000 this Valentine’s Day. The rock will be hidden at the bottom of a pink martini named Diamonds are Forever. So it might be worth splashing out on the £50 pan-Asian Valentine’s menu!

8. The Gun
Push the boat out with The Gun’s extravagant Valentine’s package. You’ll arrive by boat, toast your lover in front of stunning river views, have a five-course meal and cocktails delivered by your own personal waiter, and watch your choice of “rom com” on a 42in screen.
9. Barry White Lurve Night at Meatballs
It may not have the most romantic name, but Meatballs is the place to be for lovers this Valentine’s Day. The evening is dedicated to Barry White, the Walrus of Love, and includes a Kiss Me Quick cocktail followed by dinner, accompanied by a Barry White soundtrack.
