The Greatest Gift...

Love hearts. Chocolates. Smug looking couples. That’s right, it’s Valentine’s Day! A day that singletons loathe and partnered-up peeps froth off.

On this special day it’s all about making that special person feel… well, special! It’s not about the money, it’s not about extravagant gifts or dining in restaurants with as many pieces of cutlery as a jigsaw puzzle. It’s just about making it special. If you are one of those fellas (read as pricks) who stands with the position “it’s a commercial money making holiday and I don’t participate,” or the whole “I love her every day of the year so I don’t need to celebrate it on this day.” Well smarten up chap because love is the greatest gift in life and if you don’t celebrate it, you’re not doin’ it right!

So... for all you lovebirds out there I thought I would include a little guide with some suggested dinner date hit-ups! (Make sure you click on the names of the restaurants, it will take you to their full reviews!) Now have a peruse and get-ta booking because should have done it ages ago mate.

MTC’s VALENTINE’S DAY GUIDE FOR COUPLES, LOVERS, LOVEBIRDS, BEE EFF’s and GEE EFFS and people who say “other half” (ick!)

STAR OF SIAM – If Romeo and Juliet like to get a bit of Thai Food in and around their mouths then Star of Siam is definitely a go-er! Amazing food and a bunch nicer than some of the other Asian eateries on Gouger. Why not stroll a few doors down to Cork Wine Bar after dinner and enjoy a glass of wine while discussing what you are going to do to the other once you get home. Don't be shy... we’re all adults here.

THE GRACE ESTABLISHMENT – I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant SLASH bar SLASH location of good times. Why not take your lova’ lova’ in for a magnificent tasting menu? The chef does the hard work of choosing the food and you can just sit back and enjoy staring into each other’s eyes or whatever works for you two. Make sure you book for the restaurant though, I don’t think a meal of sliders and chili fries at the bar screams ‘I’ve found the one.’

MAIZ AND MEZCAL – Why not say ‘I love you’ with a platter of Mexican goodness. Maiz and Mezcal might not be on the top of the list for the most romantic place to eat but love hearts and amuse bouche’s aren't everyone’s style. If you are looking for a lovely restaurant with outstanding food but not too much of the lovey-dovey stuff – this is the place.

MELT – A classic. This place is not too laa-dee-daa but still reeks of ‘I know how to take ma lady out!’ This intimate little eatery on King William and Waymouth is a great place to go for a Valentine’s Day bite because the food is through- the-roof good and the atmosphere is perfect for a little bit of Valentine’s cute-ery.

ALPHUTTE – If you have a bit of money in the pocket then Alphutte is where it is at. The food is simply perfection, the service is un-beatable and it has achieved an undeniably high level of swank. If you take your lady here for a meal she will definitely be the obnoxious friend who can’t stop talking about what a great night she had and how perfect her man is. Annoying for her friends...great for you.

EDEN – Why not add a little extra sense of occasion with a short trip down to Glenelg. Eden is such a fantastic restaurant. I went there last weekend and I am still dreaming of the steak I ate (read inhaled.) Rock up a bit early and enjoy a cocktail at the bar before retiring to your table!

SEMEPHORE COPENHAGEN – If you are not big on dining out then why not go for a cruise down to Semaphore for a stroll along the beach or dare I say it.. watch the sunset. Man, that is a cliché but the ladies love it! Make sure you pick up an ice-cream to watch the sun fall (because a trip to the cinema isn’t the same without a choc-top in hand.) Or you could dine-in and enjoy the most romantic of all the foods... chocolate fondue!

So carry on dear couples and make this day a little bit special for that special someone in your life.

Until next time... Stay Rad-elaide
