Like the Hong Kong original, on the 28th Floor of One Peking, Hutong in London is very, very high up on the 33rd floor of The Shard, London’s tallest building. So, you come to this restaurant principally for the view…it’s so romantic. The restaurant specializes in the spicy food of north China, including these great dishes: braised beef rib wrapped in lotus leaf, crispy de-boned lamb rib, soft shell crabs in spicy peppers and crispy Peking mutton…Yes, the prices are a little high – but it’s more than just the food that you are paying for an unforgettable experience with your love!

Beach Blanket Babylon
This bar and restaurant is usually full of glamorous young people – but it’s also hard to think of a more romantic spot for a nice evening together. Hundreds of candles light the way through a maze of corridors. The layout is really cool, with concealed nooks with low ceilings that give a feeling of intimacy where there is even a choice of dining rooms that include the chapel, crypt and scullery. Again, a bit pricy, but you are again paying for more than a meal – you are being treated to a great experience. A fantastic place to spend an evening – very busy and with lots of beautiful people to see!

This is a really sophisticated and romantic. Take your pick from the wood-panelled restaurant or the atmospheric conservatory, decorated in white blossoms reflecting off the restaurant’s mirrors. Easy and delicate lighting, candles and a fireplace give a very pleasant and cosy atmosphere – All very appropriate for Valentine’s night. There is a pre-theatre menu offering, which is a bargain. The specialties include a very tasty gazpacho, foie gras terrine, confit pork. But who will pay attention to that when you are in an absolutely beautiful location in front of your love?
