Dating is no big deal. Just pick some fancy restaurant, anyone would do… And when there’s a special occasion like Valentine’s, a costlier one of the lot. After all, if they are charging half your month’s salary for food and drinks, the restaurant can’t be a bad choice, right? Wrong! When coming to date, you definitely need to focus on some basic principles that can result into a great restaurant and a marvellous evening. And yes, you don’t necessarily need to spend half of your salary.
1. Delicious Food
The first principle indeed! When you’re going out to dine, what can you focus on more than delicious food?!! Be sure to look for some reliable online reviews and find out what’s best and where. And yes, keep in mind both of your tastes. Some, aromatic scrumptious food and you will win her heart. But remember, the aroma will not be enough to cover up for your skipping the shower.

2. Great Ambiance
Ambience comes next. You can definitely not enjoy the ensemble of great food or your amazing company if they go ballistic with dim lights and you can’t even see what you’re eating and fumble in the dark to hold hands only to spill your mojito on your date’s lap. So, be careful. Let the ambiance be classy, warm and well set up.

3. Proximity to Nature
You want your date to turn a hit? Then it’s better to scoop her away to a place which is loaded with nature’s best. Greenery, water and fresh air can do wonders to instantly calm the nerves and set a mood for romance. And then maybe she won’t dump the plate of the leftover penne arrabiata on your head when you ask her to pay!

Zomato Rating: 4.0

4. Soothing Music
While this is the traditional must-have for the success of a lovely date night, the music need not be just soft and complement a beautiful and romantic dinner but can even be energetic and peppy for you to enjoy a close groove with your beloved. However, better shed that baraati leaf when you intend to do that.
