Top romantic restaurants in London for St Valentine’s Night

In this special day I will give you some suggestions for the night. Discover the best restaurants and cafés for a romantic meal in the capital.

Berners Tavern

The huge lobby bar looks fabulous; but the vast dining room, with its ornate plasterwork ceiling, very low lighting and lively bar area, looks even better. The menu’s prices are alarmingly high – but most of the dishes we tried were very good. Any caveats? Sometimes dizzy service; too-frequent upselling of extras; lighting so low we could barely read the menu. But Berners Tavern is an utterly glamorous experience.

Bob Bob Ricard

This enthusiastically outlandish spot has managed to achieve what many London restaurants earnestly desire but rarely deliver – it is out-and-out good fun. There’s a joy evident in every element of the place, from the Roaring ’20s decor to little touches like the ‘press for champagne’ buzzers at each booth. The menu skips between Russia and Europe, cherry-picking treats: starters include platinum vodka shots chilled to -18°C, and venison tartare, while mains feature ‘humble pie’, three-birds burger and chicken kiev.

Claude’s Kitchen

Set above Amuse Bouche (an inviting bar selling champers at friendly prices), this ‘room above a pub’ has found new purpose as a terrific neighbourhood restaurant.The weekly-changing menu is courtesy of Claude Compton, who trained at Club Gascon and Petersham Nurseries. ‘Claude is very experimental,’ gushes our waitress, ‘but he’s got a great palate, so it nearly always works.’ She’s not wrong. But, it’s not just good food that makes a restaurant, especially a local restaurant: it’s great service. And Claude’s Kitchen appears to have hired the nicest bunch of people in town. Ultra-efficient, warm and welcoming, they’re everything you want.

Clos Maggiore

Romantic settings don’t get more splendidly over-the-top than this. Take your pick from the wood-panelled restaurant or the atmospheric conservatory, bedecked in a forest of fake white blossoms that seem to extend into eternity as they bounce off the restaurant’s mirrors. Fairy lights, candles and a fireplace add to the soft focus vibe. On our early evening visit, tables were filled with mature couples and curious tourists. It’s a Provençal-inspired menu, and although à la carte choices are pegged at the sharp end, the pre-theatre menu offering is a bargain.

The Delaunay

he Delaunay was Chris Corbin and Jeremy King’s 2012 follow-up to the Wolseley and, like that handsome behemoth, it looks like it’s been here for decades. Grand European cafés provide the inspiration, and the interior is a treat – a David Collins-designed mix of green leather banquette seating, dark wood, brass rails, antique mirrors and a black and white marble floor. There’s something for everyone, at prices that aren’t greedy given the setting, the quality of the service and the assuredness of the menu.
