The blue and white will woo you and will truly make you feel like you’re witnessing majesty and somehow the entire experience is ethereal. The food here is unreal too, it is like a cherry on top.
Lebua truly is the most beautiful place for a romantic date with your special someone.
Sky Bar is the perfect date spot for those who are looking for a chill atmosphere, maybe a few drinks and good food. Sky Bar is known for the romantic rooftop locale and the view from the restaurant will make you feel like you’re literally sitting in the clouds. The music is upbeat and the vibe is chill, which makes this a wonderful location for the dreaded first date.
Set in the grandeur of Taj, Oudhyana is the personification of elegance. The minty blue of the walls, the glorious gold and the cloud like white, brought together with stunning crystal chandeliers, will make you feel and experience royalty like no other place. Albeit a little on the expensive side the decor and service alone are worth visiting this majestic restaurant and douse into luxury.
It is also the perfect location for popping the question, a ring tactfully placed in the champagne glass will do the trick. Now who would say no after being treated like a queen or a king!
For anyone who loves to eat and is looking for a nice place, Vintage will always-always make things simpler for you. Known for its food, quirky interiors and live music, the restaurant has created a niche when it comes to serving great Italian food. Italian is the way to go for dates, it is always good and yummy and it has the no fuss no muss quality.
Jannat comes on every romantic restaurant list and there’s a reason for it. Jannat has created a name for itself, the wonderful rooftop setting, the service and the amazing food is all but testimony of why the restaurant is so popular. Sitting with the special person under an open sky, stars above your head and smooth music crooning in your ears is a tried and trusted recipe for a perfect date.
Who can argue that Hyatt has great dining, I mean the place screams fine dining and sophistication. And if you or your date are people who enjoy finer things in life, you will find very few places that have finer food or finer wine. The place does fine dine Italian and there is no restaurant that can match the level of sophistication Rocca brings to its food. Do try their Primavera and Quattro Formaggi pizzas and for dolche (sweet), the molten chocolate and basil panna cotta.
So, the list is here, it’s February, which translates to- mauka hai dastoor bhi, what are you waiting for? Go and get yourself some lovin’!
