top 10 restaurants in the philippines to celebrate valentines day

If you’re lucky, you may have a flourishing love life. If not, your personal life may be, for lack of a better phrase, complex. With the aid of delicious food, you can always make Valentine’s Day more special—or bearable. Have you not yet decided what to do? Choose one of these restaurants in the Metro area for mouthwatering food, picturesque scenery, and joyful memories that will last a lifetime.

Here are the top 10 restaurants in the Philippines to celebrate Valentine’s day.

1 Elbert’s Steak Room

The obvious choice for Valentine’s Day is steak, and Elbert’s Steak Room is the local restaurant that knows the dish like the back of its hand. With oysters, caviar, foie gras, strawberries, and your choice of either the Double Gold Tenderloin Medallion or Double Gold Striploin as your main course, their St. Valentine’s 2023 set meal (P8,000/person) checks all the appropriate boxes. To make a reservation, give them a call at 8519-8665 or send an email to [email protected]; keep in mind that you must pay in full in advance otherwise there will be a P1,000 reservation fee.

2 Terraza Martinez

Terraza Martinez is the restaurant to reserve if your idea of love language is whispering sweet nothings to each other over plates of Spanish and Mediterranean food. On February 14, the BGC restaurant will be serving a six-course meal for P2,995 per person, which will include dishes like oysters (made zesty with citrus and coriander! ), salmon gravlax, confited duck (stuffed into tacos), Iberico pork (more specifically, presa Iberica), and more. To reserve your tables, call 0945-409-8120 or 0966-700-5801.

3 Sagana

It’s impossible to go wrong with French cuisine for Valentine’s Day, and Sagana in BGC is one restaurant that does it credit. With dishes like the Warm Mushroom, Farmed Chicken & Duck Foie Gras Pate in Puff Pastry appetiser, Seared Hitachiwagyu Beef Chuck Roll, and the Iced Fresh Strawberry & French Vanilla Bavarois Cream for dessert, their four-course Valentine’s menu (P2,250/person) highlights Chef Marc Aubry’s mastery of traditional French cuisine. On the 14th, there are seatings at 5:30 and 8:30 p.m.; call 8815-8801 or 09176327946 to make a reservation.

4 One World Kitchen

There’s no reason why you can’t include Asian cuisines in the Valentine’s Day menu. When you think of Valentine’s Day meals, Western or continental cuisine is probably what comes to mind. Let Babu’s Chef Him Uy de Baron’s Valentine’s Day meal at One World Kitchen serve as your guide. Expect dishes that combine East and West flavours, such as the Braveheart Beef Wellington, Shio Broiled Prawn, and Warm Salad of Baby Carrots (glazed with shoyu caramel) (with an apple-teriyaki beef jus). Call 0917-838-1525 to reserve a table for this special meal (P4,500/person inclusive of one cocktail), which is available from the 13th to the 15th with seatings at 5 and 8 p.m.

5 Palacio de Memoria

How about a romantic meal for two that also includes some historical context? With a special menu for the occasion, Palacio di Memoria and Chef Margarita Fores’ Cibo di Marghi are collaborating. The cost per person will depend on the main course you choose: chicken (P3,800), fish (P4,000), or beef (P4,500). This will be accessible on the 14th, and there will also be a live ensemble performing. To reserve your slots, simply fill out their online reservation form or contact them by phone (0997-799-8187), email ([email protected]), or both.

6 La Vie en Rose

La Vie en Rose, which is in a rather secret position in the residential district of Poblacion, is the place to reserve for Valentine’s Day if you and your SO desire to isolate yourselves from the outside world. You can order the five-course tasting menu from the secret restaurant on November 14 with chicken (P2,800), salmon (P3,200), or ribeye steak (P3,900) as your main meal. On request, vegetarian choices are also offered. Heck, why not go all out and choose a wine or drink matching option (P1,200 per person) to go along with it, as well as a bouquet of flowers (P2,500), to boot? Utilize their online reservation form to make a reservation.

7 Gianetto Pizzeria

Consider the next Degustacion Le Queen event of San Juan’s Gianetto Pizzeria for an extra-fab Valentine’s Day celebration. Along with enjoying a five-course meal of inventive European fare—like Halibut Fillet in Lime Coconut Milk, Currywurst in Potato Pave, and so forth—while jazz music plays in the background, you (and/or your significant other) will also get to enjoy the Eva Le Queen (of Drag Race Season 1!) hosting the dinner. This will only take place on the 14th, with extremely few seats (12 per seating; pick between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.) and prices starting at P2,800 per person. To make a reservation, call 0917-142-4897.

8 Pablo Bistro

From February 10 to February 19, this underappreciated Makati treasure will be providing a San Valentin menu with Spanish cuisine. It covers all the (debatable) bases with tapas, appetisers, a main course (choose from steak, sea bass, or Iberico pork! ), desserts, and wine. (Having said that, we’ll let you handle the emotional work.) To make a reservation, message Pablo Bistro via their social media pages or call 0917-812-3301.

9 Ninyo

This fine-dining hideaway in Quebec is romantic pretty much any time of the year with its verdant garden setting. You can only imagine how much more so on Valentine’s Day, especially because they have an eight-course set menu (P4,000/head) based on the Filipino motif Ninyo is known for and inspired by the world of flowers. The Trunk (with hickory bark-smoked fowl), Flower (with artichoke chawanmushi), and Leaf are just a few of the dishes you can anticipate (with shiso leaf and grilled U.S. black cod). You can reserve this between February 7 and February 15 by calling their hotline at 0939-921-5881.

10 Your Local

Thanks to Chef Patrick Go, Your Local is renowned for its inventive mashups of regional cuisines and amusing takes on Asian classics. They’ll be offering a 7-Course Tasting Menu from February 10 to February 15 that highlights what they do best; prices start at P3,640 per person with wine or drinks included.
