Where to eat on Valentine’s day | London edition

29/01/2017

Valentine’s is slowly approaching and even though I somewhat agree with friends who says “it’s unnecessary and only for shops to make money” I’m a hopeless romantic. There. I said it. Yes, we should cherish the ones we love on all other days as well, but I just like celebrating things and I love love! I love flowers and hearts and romance and all that comes with it.
This years Valentine falls on a Tuesday which sucks a little for me cause I’ll be at school, but we’ll probably plan a date another night of that week.

Anyway, to celebrate Valentine’s day I obviously think you should eat cause there’s nothing better than love and food.
Here are my fave date places in London for Valentine’s (or any other day!):

Sketch, Mayfair

If you’re into interior, amazing service and want to spend a little extra I highly recommend Sketch. It is quirky and special, pretty to look at and the food is delicious.

Roka, Aldwych

There are several Roka restaurants in London and we’ve been to Aldwych and Canary Wharf, both really good. The food is fresh and well cooked and the service is great! I prefer Roka to Zuma (another famous japanese restaurant).

100 Wardour Street, Soho

If you want more of an experience, 100 Wardour street is your place. I had dinner there on one of their Motown nights and it was absolutely fantastic. The food was good, service good but the music, oh the music! All of the singers were absolutely stunning and I was so impressed by their performances.

Le Relais De Venise, Soho

I couldn’t do a restaurant list without mentioning my fave steak restaurant. Again, there’s a few of them in London and I’ve been to them all (oops!). Firstly, don’t take your date here if she/he is a vegetarian/vegan as they only have one option on the menu and that is a yummy steak with chips and sauce. That’s it.

Radio Alice, Hoxton  Pics from this post
Radio Alice opened just two months ago and have so far had some really amazing reviews! The interior is beautiful, staff super friendly, they play good music and the pizza, nom nom nom. Delicious.

Throwback story:
When I was 14 there was this boy who liked me and on Valentine’s he gave me a rose with a poem that said:
If love was water you would be an ocean and I would swim in you every day

I remember feeling super embarrassed as I didn’t like him back, but now thinking back at it DAMN he was brave for giving me that?! Haha!

Do you have any funny valentine’s stories? Or restaurant recommendations for a date? I’m always looking for new places to try so please comment 🙂

    Great post with great tips as always Noelle! I was recommended Dishoom and loved it. There are a few in London and they serve delicious Indian food with interior and culinary influences from the Bombay cafes started up by Iranians. Very glamorous, colonial style, loved everything about it! If you don’t book, you have to queue,

    My fave restaurant in London is Coya! The food is amazing. Cecconi’s is good too – massive portions there though!

      I haven’t been to Coya! My colleague was there last week and said it was amazing. Thank you for the tip!
