Other than gifts and entertainment, finding a good dinner is always one of the biggest headaches every Valentine’s Day. To make matters worse, there is no sure-fire way or place that can satisfy your special other.
How do some of our
users of Find Dining Find Diners solve their Valentine’s dinner problem? Check out below and hopefully it can give you some ideas too!
Type 1. The French/Italian-Is-Best Romantics
Ease of Finding: ★★★★☆
Ease of reservation: ★★☆☆☆
Search for: “French” or “Italian” from the dropdown menu or pick a French/Italian dish from the suggestions!
Suitable for: If your significant other loves a pretty standard “romantic dinner”, this is a no-brainer. Add some good wine (or any wine if your loved one can’t really tell the difference) and some flowers.
Make sure to reserve pretty early as such restaurants are usually completely booked way before Valentine’s Day, but if you are lucky there may be a cancellation or two.
If you are going French, you may want to prepare some suitable desserts (like some macarons) after the dinner because admit it, most people can’t be full eating French-sized cuisines at French-style restaurants.
This might sound cheesy and boring to some, but hey it’s tried-and-tested and works on many who prefer a well-defined “romantic” Valentine’s Day.
Go for French or anything you fancy!

Type 2. The Gosh-I-Hate-Crowds Quiet-Seekers
Ease of Finding: ★★★☆☆
Ease of reservation: ★★★★★
Search for: Any cuisine you like, tap the map icon on the top-right and choose a listing that is not too near the city/town centre. Read the reviews too!
Suitable for: Those who prefer less crowds and a more unique experience. Why have a Valentine’s dinner where you can’t hear what each other is saying, right?
Find a restaurant that is slightly out of the way, looks pretty decent and has good reviews. If you have time, go check it out first and make reservations on the spot – it is usually easier that way.
Find a place not too close to the city centre!

Type 3. The Nothing-Beats-Time-Spent-Together Realists
Ease of Finding: ★★★★★
Ease of reservation: N/A (unless you have horrible housemates)
Search for: “Delivery” or “Takeout” or “Supermarket” and rent some movies or games you can both enjoy!
Suitable for: If your loved one agrees that “romantic” is subjective and most stereotypical Valentine’s Day stuff are just commercial marketing ploys, this is probably the best option to go for.
Takeouts! Simply look for a nearby restaurant, call them or check their website to see if they deliver, and have an awesome feast in the comfort of your home!
Alternatively, if you’re not the type to burn kitchens down, you can try to get a meal ready for your loved one. If you are not sure where the nearest supermarkets and convenience stores are, Find Dining can find them for you too.
Search for “Fast Food” if that’s what makes your loved one happy…
Check out some “Takeout” or “Delivery” places! Call directly by tapping the phone icon.
