Can you think of anything more romantic than dinner at the Opera? The dining room, and especially the magnificent bar at Brasseriet, are just divine, providing a stunning backdrop with gilded marble pillars, decorated ceilings and mirrors. Their delicious dishes are perfect for sharing. Do sample their traditional cocktails.
Brasserie Le Rouge embraces France in the most decadent way. Food is served here in a classic Moulin Rouge setting, in one of the Old Town’s many cellars. Put together your own dish, choosing your side, sauce, veg and drinks, surrounded by red velvet and draped fabrics.
If you are looking for the cliché Lady and the Tramp setting, then Un Poco is not the place for you. Serving Italian classics with a modern twist in an elegant setting, this restaurant is a great place to savour an aperitivo, a dolce and everything in between.
The atmosphere at Café Nizza is perfect for a romantic but easy-going date. This cosy place with its checkerboard tiled floors, white table-cloths, Thonet chairs and terrazzo tables has an inviting bar and affordable prices. Expect to be surrounded by locals enjoying the nice food on the menu (that is frequently updated) or a glass of good wine.
Love birds who long for Paris should visit Delikatessen. Behind the arched doors of a former fire station, you’ll find a lovely French restaurant with bentwood chairs and a warm atmosphere. On summer evenings tables spill out onto the street so only a narrow pavement separates passersby from the bistro-buzz. Also check out Bar Hommage next door.
