Romantic restaurants in the City of London certainly help set the mood when love is in the air.
Whether you’re looking for intimate booths, sumptuous skylines or delectable delicacies, there’s a venue around the Square Mile to seduce your significant other.
Here are some of our go-to romantic restaurants in the City of London to help set the mood.
PocketSquare Skyline Bar and Terrace
With incredible views of the City of London and Instagram-worthy cocktails, PocketSquare Skyline Bar and Terrace is a no-brainer for Valentine’s Day. The chic bar offers sharing platters and small bites, which are perfect for two to enjoy, while also offering special created drinks for the romantic day. The individual Yin and Yang cocktails have been designed as a pair, complementing each other with their distinct contrasting flavours. You can also indulge in special sharing desserts while music serenades you both.
Bob Bob Ricard City
Really impress your guest with a table for two at the sleek City restaurant. With beautiful art deco interiors and contemporary Russian and French cuisine, it’ll be an evening to remember. Snuggle up in a private booth while sharing a beef wellington (what’s more romantic than that!). Plus, don’t forget the iconic ‘Press for Champagne’ button, which sits beside every table. Press for flowing Champagne and romantic conversations. Hopefully it won’t be the only thing turned on…
Galvin La Chapelle
Take in the interiors of the Michelin-star French restaurant while whispering sweet nothings into your partner’s ear. The beautiful building is complete with large arched windows and high stone ceilings, and, in our opinion, is the perfect backdrop for a proposal. Indulge in Dorset crab with scallops to start or fallow deer with shoulder ravioli and quince for a main. Then wash it down with a large glass of red from the exceptional wine list. We’re just waiting for our invite now.
Opening back in 2010, Cigalon is inspired by the French Riviera and is a perfect location to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Sip on a glass of Crémant de Saumur Paul Louis from the Corsican wine menu while enjoying the restaurant’s seasonal menu, which includes lightly grilled meats, fresh fish and vegetables. This month, make sure you finish your evening with a chestnut chantilly and Marrons Glacés choux with two spoons to keep the romance going.
You’ll find City Social on level 24 of Tower 42 in the heart of the Square Mile. Boasting incredible views across London, the Michelin-star restaurant serves modern-British cuisine and will wow even the most-discerning diners. Relax after your romantic meal of caviar and Wiltshire truffles at the restaurant’s bar, Social 24, and sip on one of the tastiest cocktails inspired by the City’s landmarks while enjoying the incredible vista.
