On Valentine’s Day 2022, take your beloved to their favourite restaurants. 

It is a day dedicated to romance. Valentine’s Day will never be devoid of a box of chocolates, a cuddly teddy bear, and a bouquet of roses. The fortunate recipient naturally sports a grin as wide as that of the Cheshire Cat, while the not-so-lucky colleagues can only look on enviously and enquire who’s the thoughtful sender. To help you play out the rest of the day like it is supposed to be – ie showing up to the office and whisk the date of the romantic dinner you have reserved – we have come up with a list of places whose dinners you should fete him or her with.
