Steeped in history, art and culture, Berlin is an achingly romantic city. If you’ve managed to find new romance in this crazy place, or you’re just looking to spoil somebody special, then nothing says ‘I love you’ like a cosy candlelit dinner for two with plenty of good wine. If the way to your lover’s heart is through their stomach, then here’s where you need to be in Berlin.

1. Ristorante a Mano

Restaurant, Italian

What culture could be more romantic than Italian? Well, thankfully the gifts of Italy have come to Berlin, in the form of Ristorante a Mano’s superb Italian specialists. Serving everything from pastas, salads, meats and fish, you might want to save dessert for home. But realistically, you’ll probably both fall in love with the dessert menu too.

2. Heising

Diner, Restaurant, French, Vegetarian, European

If you’ve got a few bucks to spare, than you can impress your hot date with some fine French dining in a unmistakably romantic atmosphere. Located in the dreamy borough of Charlottenburg (complete with Prussian palaces and gardens), Heising is full of old-world romance, from the wooden details to the fireplaces. For the sweet-toothed sweethearts, they also make their own chocolate.

3. Café Einstein

Diner, Restaurant, European, Vegetarian, Vegan

Why not treat your relationship to a romantic dinner at Berlin’s legendary Café Einstein. Set in a gorgeous art nouveau villa that also happens to be the former home of a German film star, Café Einstein hits the spot with its high ceilings, candlelit tables and old-world elegance. The Viennese-style restaurant has been helping people fall in love since 1978.

4. Restaurant Marron

Diner, Restaurant, Restaurant with Rooms, European

Another amorous offering from Charlottenburg, Restaurant Marron forms part of the exclusive Hotel Villa Kastania. The mastermind behind the elegant dishes is chef Tobias Hagen, who gets creative with international flavours. If all goes well at dinner, you might be tempted to rent a lush room for the weekend.

5. The Grand

Cocktail Bar, Diner, Restaurant, German, European, Steakhouse

The Grand can really set the tone for your wildly romantic European fling. Eat fancy, live large, fall in love and then fly home, it’s the perfect recipe for happiness. Serving premium Franco-German dishes, there is also a wonderful cocktail bar and an in-house ballroom that is the stuff fairy tales are made of. They open for lunch hours, then reopen later in the evening for dinner.

6. Ristorante Peperoncino

Restaurant, Italian

Being masters of romance, it only makes sense to see another Italian restaurant on this list. Ristorante Peperoncino is suitably relaxed, with red and white checkered table clothes and pretty Italian music. The owners know a thing or two about love, being a happily married couple themselves, and together with their staff will make it a night to remember. It sets the perfect mood for a date.

7. Sucre Et Sel

Restaurant, French, Wine

Cosy, casual and overflowing with French wine, where else would you take a date in Berlin? This French eatery will compliment any date with its ambient atmosphere and attentive service. It’s also run by a loving couple and they’ve made sure the dishes are delicious and generous. Try the ratatouille, tartar, or duck cooked the way only the French can.
