Five Romantic Restaurants for Valentine’s Day


Five Romantic Restaurants for Valentine’s Day in west London

by Elisa Freeling

Whether you relish a reason to get romantic or just need an excuse to spring for a sitter, Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to reconnect with your other half (or at least to have an uninterrupted conversation). Plus it falls on a Saturday this year—even if the kids don’t allow you a lie-in the next day, at least there’s no school run.

Left it too late and now can’t get a reservation where and when you want? Simply switch your celebration to Friday night; you’ll have the added benefit of fewer canoodling couples flaunting their kid-free insouciance.

So where to go? Here are five of our favourites, from casual to formal, meaty to veggie—each perfect for a romantic Valentine dine.
