Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Whether you’re vibing a laid-back or luxurious date, we’ve compiled a list of restaurants around the metro that offer special deals for the most romantic time of the year.

RESIZED- Crystal Dragon

The restaurant has planned a five-course Valentine’s set menu that highlights the best of Cantonese cuisine and other regional Chinese specialties. What’s not to love? The Black Pepper Duck Meat Swan Dumpling and Deep-fried Prawn Swan Dumpling, Braised Sea Treasures and Scallop Dumpling and Black Truffle in Lobster Bisque, and Braised Pork Ribs with Red Wine Vinegar and Wolfberry Reduction are just some of the items to expect. This particular menu, available until Feb. 16, costs ₱3,880++ per person. Customers can also try out the restaurant’s new dim sum menu.

In Sofitel’s Le Bar, customers will be treated to a lavish five-course French menu, which costs 3,000 nett per person. For appetizers, guests will be served with brouillade d’oeufs with chestnuts and sea urchin, then with a serving of  butternut squash velouté with truffle and king prawn. For the main course, they have two options to choose from—the pan-seared and whisky flambéed sea scallops, creamy asparagus and guanciale risotto with shallot purée and parmesan cappuccino; or the beef tenderloin with béarnaise sauce, mornay stuffed macaroni gratin and parsnip purée. The meal is concluded with a serving of crémeux caramel with fleur de sel and hazelnut sablé, and white chocolate ice cream.
