FAQS

What makes a restaurant a perfect spot for a romantic date?

An ideal restaurant for a romantic dinner or anniversary celebration should have the following qualities – quiet but deathly silent, intimate but with enough space between tables, and buzzy but not loud and crowded. The decor should be stylish, and the lighting should not be too bright.

Where do I look for an anniversary dinner restaurant near me?

The Internet is your best bet. For birthday celebrations or romantic dinner dates, simply go online and check for restaurants near your location.

Alternatively, you can call your favourite dinner spot and request a special menu or table decor. Many restaurants offer a celebratory cake or bottle of wine if given enough advance notice.

Are there any meals I should NOT order on a romantic date?

It is generally advisable to stick to bite-sized meals or easy-to-eat dishes. You don’t want to struggle with a giant burger or a sloppy curry during a romantic evening out. Many restaurants offer convenient sharing platters that help amp up the romance and encourage a more intimate environment.

CONCLUSION

No matter if you are planning a big wedding anniversary party or an intimate table for two, Singapore has a plethora of romantic options for your night out. There are lavish four-course dinners, where you can spend hours staring into the eyes of your significant other, or there are buzzy cocktail bars that ooze style and glamour to wine and dine with your loved one.
