Twenty amazing restaurants for Valentine’s Day

10 amazing restaurants for Valentine’s Day

by Great British Chefs 24 January 2017

Whether it’s oysters and Champagne in London, seafood and scenery on Jersey or cocktails and spas in the countryside, we’ve rounded up our top menus, offers and restaurants for Valentine’s Day this year.

We’re not usually ones to argue with the Bard, but in the case of music being the food of love we have to disagree. Here at Great British Chefs we firmly believe that food is most definitely the food of love, so we’ve rounded up our top picks for indulging both hearts and stomachs this Valentine’s.

Restaurants to impress

Galvin La Chapelle

When it comes to romance, the French tend to know what they’re doing, so what better way to pull out all the stops than with the height of French cuisine at La Chapelle, an incredibly romantic venue. For Valentine’s Day Jeff Galvin has designed a three-course menu for £110, including both canapés and rosé Champagne to start and handmade chocolates at the end.

Galvin Bistrot de Luxe

Equally grand is the Galvin brothers' other famed London restaurant Bistrot de Luxe. For £75 you can enjoy a three-course menu with a glass of Champagne and handmade chocolates, with dishes including their incredible apple tart tatin, Cumbrian beef Wellington and hand-rolled truffled gnocchi.

Alyn Williams at The Westbury

Curries and kebabs for Valentine’s Day? Definitely. Adding a bit of spice to Valentine’s this year, Vivek Singh’s newly revamped Cinnamon Club is offering a £75 five-course set menu which includes both, alongside ‘Sweet Juno’ cocktails.

For sharing

José Pizarro

The ability to not fight over the last croquetas or slice of charcuterie is surely a sign of true love, and at José Pizarro there are plenty of sharing platters full of the stuff. Spend the evening there with a few glasses of wine and discover just how romantic Spanish food can be.

Tom’s Kitchen

Tom Aikens’ teams at the Chelsea, Canary Wharf and St Katharine Docks restaurants have gone the whole hog this year, with a sharing menu that includes venison tartare, Cumbrian chateaubriand and a Maltesers ice cream sundae to devour as a pair, plus some special cocktails to sip, too.

Hix Restaurants

If sweet things are the only way to woo your loved one, then the sharing desserts at HIX, Hixter and Tramshed are sure to induce sugary palpitations. How could anyone refuse a salted caramel fondue with strawberries, marshmallows and doughnuts?

Gourmet Getaways

Ocean at The Atlantic

If you’re after breathtaking coastal views, Michelin-starred dining and five-star luxury, then The Atlantic Hotel on the beautiful island of Jersey is just the ticket. They’re offering a tasting menu for £85 (£135 with wine), including his famous rice-less Jersey squid risotto and a very special local cheeseboard.

Northcote

A gourmet institution, any stay at Northcote is bound to be special – especially when it includes Champagne in the intimate cocktail bar, a five-course Valentine’s Day menu from chefs Nigel Haworth and Lisa Allen, and a stonking Lancashire breakfast to wake up to in the morning (from £385).
