The Beatles might've told us that all we need is love, but some flattering low-lighting, exquisite food and a suitably magical atmosphere can certainly give an evening extra sparkle. If you're venturing to the capital in search of something special let this collection of some of the most romantic restaurants in London help you turn the romance up to eleven, whether you're hunting for proposal ideas, Valentine's Day venues or simply because your other half deserves it.
A sophisticated cocktail or two makes a fantastic warm up for a romantic meal. Baranis brings chic French style to Chancery Lane, while Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings' leafy greenhouse and the exclusive Ling Ling bar at Hakkasan Mayfair both deliver atmosphere in spades. Gaze out over the London skyline as you enjoy Michelin-starred menus at Angler or Galvin at Windows, or discover whether the old myth is true with a trip to Bentley's Oyster Bar – it just might turn your evening from glamorous to amorous.
