Victory Mansion

110 user reviews 5

Charming candlelit tables, mesmerising cocktails and small plates...Victory Mansion is a serious hidden gem and a great choice for romantic places to eat in Stoke Newington. Head over to this East London beaut for a cosy night of Asian cuisine, unconventional beers and house tipples.

Apulia

181 user reviews 5

This family-run restaurant specialises in authentic Italian cuisine, specifically from the southern region of Puglia. Located near Farringdon, the eatery's menu includes creamy risotto, fresh pasta dishes and sumptuous seafood, from stuffed squid to premium striploin steak. 

Go to one of Megan's many London venues and you'll find a florally-adorned hideaway with hanging fairy lights; the perfect setting for a romantic date. Snuggle up under an indoor tree in Clapham or grab a plush seat in Fulham's garden and enjoy a cosy evening with your boo.

Circolo Popolare

2 user reviews 5

Stepping into Circolo Popolare is a little like stepping into a fairytale. Adorned with hanging flowers, candles and fairy lights, this trattoria takes the crown for Italian romantic restaurants in London. Famed for its giant cheese wheels full of pasta and 10-layer lasagnas, the Fitzrovia den is a feast for the eyes in more ways than one. 

The Culpeper

3 user reviews 4

A jack of many trades, The Culpeper houses a pub, restaurant and a gorgeous rooftop garden. Take your love up to the sky-high terrace and sit amongst the herbs sipping on botanical cocktails and chomping fresh food made using ingredients all around you.

Sketch

7 user reviews 4

Instantly recognisable from its powder pink interiors, Sketch has become a bit of a bucket-list restaurant for London foodies. But the grammable venue offers more than just dreamy aesthetics; the menus here are pretty amazing too, with everything from afternoon teas to seven-course tasting feasts.
