Fall in love all over again at these romantic restaurants.
We know you haven’t left it to the last minute to book somewhere for Valentine’s Day this week. But just on the off chance that it may have slipped your mind (don’t worry, we won’t tell), we’ve saved you the frantic scrolling through google to find London’s most romantic restaurants, and put them into a neat little list right here. You are welcome!
Recreate Lady & The Tramp at Trullo with a plate of their homemade spaghetti. But in their warmly-lit dining room rather than the back alley of a local Italian.
The TLR crew think the only way to say ‘I love you’ is with a lamb en croute and hassle-back potatoes… obviously. You can thank us late for that one.

Hot stuff: The main event at tonight’s Fitzrovia Collective; perfectly pink lamb en croute and buttery hassleback spuds. Four spots left for walk ins!🔥 #lambencroute #meatcourse #hasslebackpotatoes #fitzroviacollective #fitzrovia #popup #supperclub #socialmediatakeover #igtakeover #instagramtakeover
Can you get anything more romantic than a wine bar… maybe, but find somewhere as cozy and charming as Duck Soup and we’ll eat our hats. It’s all smack bang in central London, perfect!
We had to throw in another wine bar, and this is one of our faves. If you love food AND wine, this is the place for you. It’s small, dark (in an intimate way, not an eerie way) and it’s got that chic parisienne vibe about it. How romantic.
West Londoners looking for somewhere with great food, fantastic cooking, but a little different to the usual West London vibe, 108 Garage is just for you.

We recommend the counter for this one. Who doesn’t love a good counter? Well this has to be a TLR favourite. From the Barbary family, the food will never let you down, and the service is impeccable, plus it’s centrally located for any out of towners looking to experience London life. Get there early, there could be a queue.
We felt inclined to throw this place in the mix, because it doesn’t get more romantic than eating under a ceiling of flowers. Clos Maggiore is iconic, especially on Valentine’s Day.
Just walking down to Café du Marché feels romantic. You make your way along the cobbled street and under the arch way to get there, and inside it’s warm, friendly and chic. If the live bassist and pianist doesn’t swoon your date, the côte de boeuf most definitely will. Oui oui mon chérie.
Everything sounds more romantic in French, so already the name of the restaurant would have your Valentine’s butterflies flitting. You’ll fall in love all over again at this charming bistro, before and after the food.
