Determine your date-night destination…

Yes, yes, we all know that the most romantic restaurant in London is Covent Garden’s Clos Maggiore (and if you don’t, we heartily – sorry – recommend it), but you’ll be joining a very long line of lovers to get in there this Valentine’s Day.

Besides, this is London, we’re SquareMeal, and we can all do better than the obvious. Whether you’re on the pull, excitably dating, have a ring-sized box in your pocket or welded to your lifelong love, we've got the place for you.

Start by taking our cupid-approved and very hand quiz above: just answer a handful of questions and we'll present you with restaurant suggestions tailored to your needs, even if all you want is a fun, love-free dinner with your mates.
