Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse
Housed along heritage-rich Mohamed Sultan Road, this Tuscan-style steakhouse is an elegant spot for a special night out with your SO. The restaurant is dressed in brick walls and glamorous artwork, which add a touch of old-school Italian allure, while leather booths and wood panelling give the space a classy and upscale vibe.
The char-grilled bistecca alla Fiorentina ($220), a whopping 1.1kg T-bone, is truly a sight to behold. The portion is perfect for sharing with your date and comes served in thick-cut slices true to traditional Tuscan fashion.
If you have somebody special that you want to wow, Artemis is your place. With to-die-for views of Marina Bay and the CBD, this romantic restaurant manages to be elegant without being stuffy. The incredibly attentive wait staff and talented sommelier are as impressive as the stunning panorama outside the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Chef Oliver Hyde’s menu of Mediterranean-inspired flavours is like a who’s who of ingredients you’d want to feature for a special occasion: lobster, crab, fish, pork, caviar, mouth-watering dessert – it’s all here and it’s all impressive.
This romantic restaurant might be all about fine dining, but there’s no stuffiness at Restaurant JAG. In fact, Michelin-starred Executive Chef Jeremy Gillon and Managing Director Anant Tyagi couldn’t be warmer. There’s also a great upbeat playlist in the background, taking any high-end staleness or preconceptions out of the equation.
Inspired by the mountainsides of Savoie, France, Jeremy uses 40 indigenous herbs and playfully incorporates them throughout his dishes. For a special romantic dinner date, we recommend the Discovery Degustation Menu ($298) for the true JAG omakase experience.
NOX Dine in the Dark
NOX has a perfect balance of romantic dining with a flair for the dramatic. All the wait staff are visually impaired but impeccably trained and will help you feel at ease with this multi-sensory culinary experience.
Heading up the stairs into total darkness is a little daunting. It’s disorientating, too, but the well-practiced servers know to expect this and gently guide you to your table. Sitting in a completely dark room, with no people watching or technology to distract you (personal belongings are locked away downstairs), you’ll find that you actually talk. Be it your first or thirtieth Valentine’s Day together, NOX connects you like no other restaurant can. Feeling for the familiarity of each other’s hands across the table, discussing what you think you might be eating, and just listening to the sounds of the restaurant can make for a unique date night that you’ll remember for years.
