Whether you are part of a couple or flying solo, celebrating Valentine’s Day in London offers up one more excuse (if any were needed) to dine out in the city with your partner or with friends.
If you are looking to impress your Valentine, head to Atelier de Joël Robuchon on West Street off Shaftesbury Avenue for an unforgettable experience with their seven course, indulgent Valentine’s menu that includes a lobster salad, seared scallops with caviar, and a raspberry and rose coated with a white chocolate mousse with a champagne sorbet. For a restaurant with views to admire over central London, Aqua Kyoto on Regent’s Street offers a specially designed Valentine’s menu that includes a glass of champagne on arrival.
For pure romance, there is nowhere better than Clos Maggiore in Covent Garden. The restaurant steers away from being too clichéd. It has a sweet dining room lined with foliage reminiscent of a Midsummer Night’s Dream set and it is above all polished and comfortable.
