To help you get a head start on your Valentine's Day plans, we thought we would discuss Sydney's most romantic restaurants. So what makes a restaurant a romantic one? Well, we are looking for intimate and elegant destinations with a bit of class. The menu would most likely be mid priced and the service must be impeccable.
There are quite Sydney cafes and restaurants we could recommended, but in this listing we want to name the very best. We will need your help with this topic too; so if you would like to add to this listing, just leave a comment below.
The first subject of our romance hit list is the affordable Wagaya Restaurant in Chinatown. Why here you ask? Well, it is a different, that is for sure. Yes, there are the touch screens, but novelty will wear off soon enough. The real reason to come here is because it is modern, spacious and the food is delicious. Dine from the 'nibbles' menu for a relaxed tapas style experience or dare your date to try Sushian Roulette, which is a dish in which one of the six pieces of sushi is loaded with wasabi - okay, not everyone will think that is romantic, but it is sure to be an unforgettable experience. The menu is wide and varied featuring Korean pizzas, hot pots, various rice and noodle dishes and even gratin dishes. Mains are around the $20 mark here.
If you want a relaxed date, where you can talk, sip wine, eat a little and talk some more - then go for tapas. Yulli's in Surry Hill is our pick for a romantic tapas experience. You can share plates of baby burritos, homemade dolmades, leek and ginger dumplings and mixed chips. And guess what - it is all vegetarian - but you won't even notice. Try one of their boutique beers and your sure to have a great night out.
If you would rather head out just for dessert, try Baroque Bistro, which is a fantastic place to relax with a fine cocktail, wine or champagne and have a macaron or two. If you are not content with that, opt for vanilla crème brulée and pistachio ice cream or raspberry soufflé, raspberry chocolate ice cream. This is a beautiful intimate establishment and you are sure to have fun here.
So, those are our suggestions; now it is over to you. Fill us in on your top romantic cafes and restaurants in Sydney.
