This Latin American restaurant serves some of the best dishes in London. All of their foods are full of flavour and the setting couldn’t get anymore romantic. They have outdoors and indoors seating with fairy lights and live music.

2) Franco Manca, Covent Garden

Possibly the most affordable place out of everything on the list! The pizzas are absolutely delicious and are made in a wood-burning oven which gives it, its signature toasted taste. In terms of settings, try to get a seat downstairs where it’s less busy and a lot more romantic. The lights are dim, food is great and there’s always good music playing. Definitely a place for a perfect first, second, third…fiftieth date!

For two people including a drink each: ~£20

Recommended: No1 and No6 pizza

3) Hare & Tortoise, Blackfriars

From the outside, the Blackfriars branch is probably the least romantic but once you’re inside it’s a different story. It’s dimly lit and the tables are perfectly setup for a date, plus you barely get signal on your phone so you have to talk to and get to know your date ;). I’ve always loved the food in Hare & Tortoise  and they have a really wide range of dishes so you’ll always find something you love!

For two including a drink each: ~£35

Recommended: Dragon Roll, Chicken Chow Mein, Curry Laksa and Salmon Teriyaki Rice

4) Pho & Bun

A subsidiary of Viet Eat, Pho & Bun is a new restaurant that offers a wide selection of delicious Vietnamese food. Try to get a seat downstairs at the cave tables. It’s so romantic especially with the candles and the dark settings. The food is equally delicious, they serve dishes that are unique to Pho & Bun so you can rest assure that you’ll be eating delicious foods.

For two people incl. drinks: ~£30

Recommended: Vermicelli with Lemongrass Tofu and Sweet Potato Fries

5) Amorino

So this is more of a dessert place, but if your date is going really well then you must end it with a sweet treat 😉 Amorino is the perfect place to have the most delicious gelato in London. They have flavours ranging from fruit, chocolate and nuts, so you’ll definitely find something you’ll love. Plus they make the ice cream into a really pretty rose- how cute and romantic! Additionally, they serve hot chocolates, coffee and macaroons so you’re really not short of choice.

One small cone with endless flavours: £3.50

Recommended: Pistachio, Coconut and Mango


I hope this gives you lovers an idea of where to go on your next date and I hope you all have fun and enjoy the restaurant and dishes as much as I did 😀

Happy Dating 😉
