I have received many emails asking me to recommend romantic restaurants in Singapore for Valentine’s Day Dinner. Many of you are probably trying to decide on a nice restaurant to bring your date, I hope that this list of Valentine’s Day Dinner Restaurants will help you make the decision.
If money is not an issue, obviously you can go for the best restaurants in Singapore like Les Amis, Iggy’s, Andre, and the celebrity chef restaurants at Marina Bay Sands.
But not everyone has the budget to splurge on a $500 meal, so my list of Valentine’s Dinner will include a range of dining options in Singapore: affordable cafes, ideal places to celebrate with a group of friends, and also romantic restaurant with nice ambience and good food.
Barracks Cafe at House is one of my favourite restaurants at Dempsey road – they have nice ambience, and decent food at good value. There is currently no special Valentine’s Day Dinner menu, so order the skinny pizzas, and main courses like fish & chips, lobster linguine from their normal ala carte menu.
Barracks Cafe is ideal for all occasions, be it Valentine’s Dinner for two, or with a group of friends. If it’s not raining, get a table in the lovely al fresco during dinner.
Price Range: $20ish for most main courses, and $7-$12 for desserts.

Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant
I know having German food doesn’t sound as romantic as French or Italian cuisine, but if you are celebrating Valentine’s Day with a group of friends, why not have some German sausage and beer? Brotzeit German Restaurant has branches at Vivocity, Raffles City and 313 @ Somerset. If you have been there before, check out Paulaner Brauhaus at Millenia Walk.
Price Range: $20-$40 for a main course, $50 upwards with beer.

District 10 Bistro
Whenever my friends ask for my recommendation for a romantic restaurant which is also laid back and affordable, I will always think of District 10 Bistro at Windstedt road near Newton Circus.
District 10 will be having a special ala carte menu for Valentine’s Dinner, but it is not out yet. I understand that there won’t be any set menu, but the prices for the ala carte items may be increased slightly higher. Please give them a call to check on the status of the ala carte menu next week.
Price Range: $20-$30 for Main Course, $12 for Desserts (Prices may be higher during Valentine’s Day).

The Easties may want to check out Foo House Cafe & Bar near Upper Changi Road. Chef Robert Foo from Foo House used to work at Grand Hyatt Hotel Singapore as their Executive Sous Chef. They serve big portions of Western food at very reasonable pricing. Currently, there isn’t any special Valentine’s Day Dinner promotion, do give them a call to check on a closer date.

The University Club
I know it may sound a little strange to have Valentine’s Day Dinner in the university, but if your partner and you first met in the university schooling days, I think it’s quite memorable to celebrate this special day back in the campus.
The University Club is a romantic fine dining restaurant run by the owners of the Prive Group. It has a $98++/pax Valentine’s Day Dinner Menu which starts off with amuse bouche, and an organic mushroom soup. Continue the dinner with the Scallop & Pea risotto, and choose your main course between the Dory or Wagyu Beef. End off with a happily-ever-after ending by having the Ivory Chocolate & Strawberry Tart.
Price Range: The University Club’s Valentine’s Day Dinner menu (available on 11th, 12th, & 14th Feb 2011) $98++/pax. Main courses from ala carte menu $20-$40.

I know it is expensive to eat out at restaurants during Valentine’s Day, but I also believe that it is a special occasion for us to indulge. Guys, be a gentleman and hand over your wallet, and Ladies, wear your best dress and put on nice party make up for the dinner.
Every day can be Valentine’s Day if you cherish each other. For those who do not want to squeeze with other couples on Valentine’s Day or during the weekend (12th & 13th Feb 2011), why don’t you celebrate the occasion a few days earlier? Or even better still, cook a scrumptious meal for your partner at home. Have fun planning for Valentine’s Day!
It’s not about where you eat, but who you eat with.
