9x Restaurants for a romantic Valentine's dinner

February is here, and you know what that means: Valentine's Day is coming. Want to give your lover, friend, or special someone the ultimate surprise? The answer is a romantic candlelit Valentine's dinner. Because the way to your lover's heart is through their stomach: the restaurants on this list can confirm this.

Dijk 9

Love is ... surprising your sweetheart with a home-cooked meal, but preferably with the help of a pro. Dijk 9 gives you a hand: their Valentine's menu is as good as finished and only needs a sprinkle of love. That way, you can spend the rest of the evening at the table. PS don't have the skills of Gordon Ramsey? You can also reserve a table at the restaurant ;) 

Fifth NRE

Aaah love. A fantastic phenomenon and Fifth NRE agrees. Just found a new love, or do you want to reignite your flame? With 'the love at first bite'-menu, you will undoubtedly succeed. Three courses, a shared dessert, and some sweet later, your romance will be stronger than ever.

Lobster & Ox

For lovers of luxury (aren't we all?), Lobster & Ox is the only answer. Especially for Valentine's Day, they are open on Monday. Champagne, oysters, lobster. Making a reservation is a treat in and of itself. And the best is yet to come: on Valentine's Day, they pamper couples with a little surprise. 

Dinner in Motion

El Puente

It seems like you have to pull out all the stops during the international day of love. And to be honest, we only feed that idea with this list of romantic restaurants. At the end of Stratumseind, El Puente has their Valentine's menu ready: five courses to enjoy at home or at the restaurant, with influences from all corners of the world. Just the way love likes it. 

Victoria by Goyvaerts

The Goyvaerts brothers know the way to your heart. Their restaurants Goyvearts and Victoria by Goyvaerts might add to that. Gaze into your lovers' eyes, enjoy good food, and drink on your love. The only thing that's left to do now is make a reservation

Dinner in Motion

Dinner in Motion comes up with a Valentine's Day special every year. Unfortunately, we have to disappoint you for Valentine's Day 2023; they are fully booked. Lucky for you, every night is equally spectacular, and you can bring your crush on any day given day throughout the year. 

Thomas Eindhoven


Are you looking for a change of pace? We've got an idea! Gezana might not have a Valentine's Day menu, but it does have something better. What could be more fun than feeding each other Eritrean and Ethiopian snacks by hand? We certainly can't think of anything.


Thomas on Stratumseind is fun for both down-to-earth couples and couples with rose-colored glasses. There won't be rose petals, hearts, and cupids, just good food in a beautiful pink setting. 

Brasserie Rita

Can't celebrate love on Valentine's Day? This might be your lucky day! At Brasserie Rita, you can celebrate love from Friday, February 10 through Tuesday, February 14 (Valentine's Day) while enjoying a five-course dinner by chef Ron van de Wiel. Add a glass of champagne, and you've got yourself and your lover an unforgettable night. 

Cheers! To love!
