We’ve already covered cocktail bars you can take your date to, so let’s take things to the next level and go for a fancy, romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. Here are a few places to wow your significant other – jewellery and sweet nothings not provided.
The contemporary Asian restaurant of CE LA VI will be running a Valentine’s set menu at RM1088++ per couple (inclusive of a sparkling wine cocktail) with a seven-course line-up that includes oyster with Ikura and Ponzu, sashimi, lobster bisque, and Japanese choux pastry. It’s also a Dirty Dancing themed night, with dance performances, a rose bouquet auction (you can thank us later), and a prize for Best Dressed Couple in the Dirty Dancing theme.

They usually say in most relationships ‘what’s mine is yours’, so we think a sharing menu like the one at Mr Chew’s is a perfect way to celebrate that. Enjoy the views of Bukit Bintang all lit up over the sharing set menu created by Chef James Thong, featuring crowd favourite nori taco with baby scallop, pan-seared foie gras and chilli friend fish tofu, grilled tiger prawns, and green mango and Shanghai sauce. Keep an eye out for the champagne and wine promotions curated by sommelier Alison Christ. The dinner is RM250++ per person, and reservations are essential.
