Valentine’s Day is nearly here, and so is the pressure that comes with it - the stress of finding the perfect venue can put a dampener on the evening before it's even begun. But being that we're helpful - and hopeful - romantics, we've put together a list of the most romantic locations in the city to celebrate the day of love. You're welcome!
Bread Street Kitchen and Bar
“From BSK with Love” is a Valentine’s extravaganza, complete with a delicious five-course menu that features oysters and lobster, and lots and lots of chocolate for only Dhs295 per person. Bargain! Plus, every couple will get a rose and a special selection of chocolates in a customised box (to eat later in front of Netflix, obvs).
To reserve call 04 426 2626 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Emirates Golf Club
Do you want your partner to know just how tee-rific they are? Emirates Golf Club are giving you the opportunity to dine on the greens of the championship Majlis golf course in a private canopy, complete with views of the lake, fountain and clubhouse. Get picked up by a chauffer-driven car and welcomed to the course with a glass of premium bubbles, before enjoying a specially crafted five-course dinner (complete with wine pairings) that’ll be served by your personal butler. Fancy.
Dhs1,250 per couple. To reserve call +971 4 417 9999 or email email@example.com
Roberto’s Restaurant and Lounge
Get a taste of Italy this Valentine’s Day with Roberto’s ultra-romantic packages – all of which include complimentary chocolate and a professional photo taken in front of the stunning Burj Khalifa backdrop. Always have to think about the 'gram. For Dhs840 you can enjoy a four-course menu, either in the Entertainment Lounge, where you’ll enjoy live music and entertainment throughout the evening, or in the main dining room if you prefer a quieter setting. If you’re looking to impress, why not enjoy Roberto’s five-course tasting menu, which includes caviar and wagyu beef tartar, on their Cortina balcony overlooking the Dubai skyline. Plus, ladies dining on the balcony will get a special gift.
Dhs840 for Restaurant and Entertainment Lounge packages, Dhs3,500 for the Cortina balcony package. To reserve call +971 4 386 0066 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Queen Elizabeth 2
Channel your inner Kate Winslet (minus the sinking bit, hopefully) and celebrate love aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2. The Heart of the Ocean experience will see you and your Leo DiCaprio led through the ship's passageways to a candle-lit dinner on the bow. Enjoy a five-course meal and bottle of bubbly while being serenaded by live classical music, and being waited on by your own butler. End the evening by recreating the famous Titanic ‘flying’ scene at the front of the ship (and getting your photo taken), before staying the night in a Superior room. Oh and breakfast is included, so you don't have to worry about a thing.
Dhs1,969 per person, inclusive of a night stay in a Superior room and breakfast. To reserve visit www.qe2.com/offers
Warm up for Valentine’s Day on the 13th, where men can join in on the ladies' night offer of two complimentary drinks and half-off mains, and a further two complimentary drinks with the meal. Then, on the 14th, get ready for a Vegas-themed event that promises an evening full of debauchery, and even has an Elvis on hand to sign (fake) marriage certificates once the “love potions” have set in. Couples can enjoy a five-course sharing menu for Dhs500 with house beverages or Dhs600 with bubbles.
To reserve call +971 4 560 1700
The ultra-sophisticated underwater restaurant has perhaps the most extravagant Valentine’s offer in the city, with a Dhs15,000 platinum package.

Yes, really. Already bought your date a gift? Don’t worry – get the same package but without the bracelet for Dhs7,000 per couple. The silver dining experience will get you dinner and a bottle of bubbly while the Blue package includes dinner and a glass of bubbly on arrival.
