Valentine’s Day 2015 – restaurants that are still available, hopefully

Valentine's Day 2015Where to go for a nice dinner on Valentine’s Day 2015? We looked through our archives for ideas and shared them in our earlier post : Valentine’s Day 2015 in Singapore – Romantic Restaurants. If you are like us and have just started to call the restaurants, you will soon realise that many of the restaurants mentioned in our earlier post are fully booked for Valentine’s Day or you have to sit right next to the kitchen door or some spot which may not go down well with your partner.

So back to the drawing board. We went through our archives again to see if we can find a few nice restaurants which, maybe, others have not thought of yet. We picked out Valentine’s Day 2015 restaurants that are not on the usual recommended lists. There are a few with elegant and romantic setting. Others are casual but can be less intimating and may well contribute to a more enjoyable evening. Hopefully, these restaurants still have tables available.

(For a fresh post prepared for Valentine’s Day 2016, please see Romantic Restaurants for Valentine’s Day in Singapore 2016.)

Here is The Ordinary Patrons’ list of Valentine’s Day 2015 restaurants for procrastinating ordinary patrons who have yet to book a table for Valentine’s Day.
