If you’re looking for a restaurant with a romantic setting in Belfast, we have several top picks. EDŌ is a modern Spanish tapas restaurant in the heart of the city centre, perfect for a special dinner this Valentine’s night.

For pizza lovers, we recommend checking out ORTO at one of their two Belfast locations. This spot doesn’t take reservations, so put your name down for a table and then head to the nearby Jeggy Nettle pub for a pint while you wait.

If it’s Asian cuisine you’re after, check out Yügo at either their east Belfast or city centre locations for a romantic date accompanied by a delicious variety of contemporary Asian fusion dishes.

Maybe it’s tacos you’re craving? La Taqueria serves up some of the best tacos in the city at both their city centre and Ormeau Road locations. The atmosphere is small and intimate, perfect for a Valentine’s meal.

Your romantic evening doesn’t have to end with dinner, as there are a number of exciting events taking the city by storm on Valentine’s evening.

You could book tickets to see a theatre production of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet at the Lyric Theatre. A classic tale of two star-crossed lovers to really set the tone of Valentine’s Day.

You could also combine dinner and a show with the Valentine’s Day Cabaret Show at Cabaret Supper Club between 7 pm and 11 pm.

For a more active, fun, and light-hearted take on Valentine’s evening, why not take it back to the good ole days and book a lane at Hollywood Bowl?

You could also head to Lost City Adventure Golf to putt a few holes as a classic but always reliable fun date night. Also, you could even head out to Glengormley for the new kid on the mini golf block, ScrapYard Golf.

If you’re continuing down the romantic route, we recommend finishing the night off with a cosy cocktail at one of Belfast’s best bars.

Rattlebag is a new kid on the block in the cocktail scene in Belfast. It’s a cosy, intimate bar that is just the ticket for Valentine’s Day.

Equally as cosy but also perfect for Galantine’s is a cocktail or two at Angel and Two Bibles, Belfast’s hidden speakeasy bar, where you can enjoy a snug cocktail by the fire or rooftop drink with the gang on the heated terrace.

For a more relaxed pint, whether it’s on a date or with friends, why not head to the Sunflower Bar or the Ulster Sports Club to round off the night?
