Life is just so busy and fast paced again right now and it’s set to get even busier going forward towards Christmas. Making time to spend time with a loved one for a date night is such a good idea. It’s so valuable to set aside time without emails and phone calls getting in the way, and whilst it’s fun to veg out in front of Netflix in your comfiest clothes eating pizza, it is worth keeping the sparkle and fun by planning to go out-out. Here are our top 5 places to eat out in London for a date night.
1. Blow the budget
Scott’s in Mayfair is still one of golden restaurants in London. The décor is plush, chanelling a 1920s feel. Scott’s is famous for the freshest fish, all handled by the highly experienced team to give you a classic dish. Try a dozen oysters as an appetiser and enjoy a bottle of champagne or treat yourself to cocktails by the skilled and attentive bartenders. Whatever the reason for your visit this is one of the top meeting venues in London.
Gloria in Shoreditch bills itself as a 1970’s Capri-style trattoria. It boasts a dining room that will make you feel you’ve stepped back in time and that this restaurant has been doing what it does best for years and years. Make sure you bring your phone charged and ready for taking photos. Everything served here will be sure of a place on your Instagram account. Get ready for some seriously delicious and skilled dishes to satisfy the taste buds and of course your eyes.
3. The Cheese Bar
Do you like a bit of fromage too? The Cheese Bar in Camden won’t break the bank but will impress a cheese-loving partner. Take a look at the menu to be convinced.
4. The Ivy
Whilst The Ivy may now be a high-street name with cafés in most trendy areas, The Ivy in Covent Garden is the original and arguably the best – though of course we love The Ivy in Tunbridge Wells too!
This classic restaurant has seen more famous people walk through it’s doors than you’ve had hot dinners. Having had a make over in 2017 it has retained it’s glamorous reputation and is likely to have you revisiting time and again. You will find a menu that caters for everyone with classic British meals combined with Asian influences. Make sure you leave room for dessert as you’re not going to want to leave without it.
5. Arros QD
Arros QD in Fitzrovia builds it’s atmosphere with black walls, orange furnishings and gold cutlery. Arros is Spanish for ‘rice’ and you will not be disappointed by the classic paella. Forget about the paella you’ve had on holiday, this is coming from a three Michelin-Starred chef from Valencia called Quique Dacosta. The paella is cooked using wood burning stoves which enhances the flavour. If that doesn’t tempt you there are plenty of dishes that will.
