Why have butterflies in your stomach when you could have good food in it?
1. For the die-hard romantics: The White Rabbit
You guessed it: Singapore's most romantic restaurant. We mean, like, definitively - this romantic restored chapel tucked away in the lush greenery of Dempsey Hill was awarded "Most Romantic Restaurant" in the Chope Diners' Choice Awards 2016.
Tuck into Modern European Fare like Rangers Valley Wagyu Carpaccio or Roasted Black Truffle Chicken; the Valentine's Day menu is a six- or seven-course meal comprising Paupiette of Dover Sole, Veal Cheek Blanquette. End off on a sweet note with the Muscato "Snow Globe".

2. For the classy couples: Saint Pierre
Saint Pierre's essence-centric menu - whereby essences, derived from premium seasonal produce, are used as stocks and seasonings in order to naturally flavour the food - is made even more glorious with its One Fullerton locale, with sweeping views across the Singapore River.
The 10-course Valentine's Day menu begins with a glass of bubbly champagne, and then gets better and better. Think Poached Atlantic Lobster, Floral Honey-Roasted Langoustine, Tahitian Vanilla Bourbon Mousseux and more.

3. For the fancy schmancy: Tippling Club
Want fancy? Foie gras is pretty fancy, but even more so when layered in textures of peach and gold, embellished with exquisite ingredients sourced exclusively for this special night at Tippling Club.
And your drink? Choose your cocktail based on your favourite scent from their Sensorium menu.
P.S. A special treat awaits the lovely ladies in the house!

4. For old-love lovers: Tiger's Milk
Rekindle the excitement of your relationship with unconventional Peruvian playfulness at this rooftop bar and grill, whimsically adorned with fairy lights and cheeky bursts of colour.
Named after the Peruvian term for a citrusy marinade used to cure seafood in ceviche, it'd be a crime not to order the Tiger's Milk Trio - of, well, ceviches. And bring on the Piscos, too - what's a date night without a cocktail (or three)?
28 Ann Siang Rd, Singapore 069708
5. For coffee over cocktails: Open Farm Community
Who said your V-day date can only start after sunset? Day or night, this dainty open-concept restaurant cum urban farmland, is definitely date-worthy.
Or, dine under the blanket of stars at dinner with the specially-curated Valentine's Day menu, featuring dishes like Vanilla Parsnip Risotto, Rose-Marinated Duck Breast and more.
130E Minden Rd, Singapore 248819
6. For Catalan connoisseurs: La Ventana
Savour some of the best classic Catalan dishes, some of which has been passed down for generations within Chef Charles Gaig's family.
On the menu this Valentine's Day: Turron Foie Gras, Scallop Coca and Lobster Paella, as well as a surprise Saint Valentine's Day Dessert, all paired with carefully selected wines.
16A Dempsey Rd, Singapore 247695
7. For Sultan-era Sensuousness: The Ottoman Room
Nothing screams sexy more than scarlet red, and The Ottoman Room seems to know this well with its plush armchairs in its romantic space, adorned with gold accents and dozens of hanging oil lamps.
In this intimate Mediterranean social house, the sharing concept meal features central items for the table such as charcoal roasted meats and vegetables, while an array of unlimited mezze will be served on copper and wood dim sum style trolleys.
