NoLIta New York Bar & Italian Eatery – South Great Georges Street

This is a great casual dining option for couples looking to mark the occasion as well as friends looking to have a galantines meal and cocktail. The red leather couches and warmly lit floor to ceiling bars create a romantic atmosphere – (and that’s before you head up to the whiskey bar for an after dinner drink, serious vibes in this space).
Café en Seine – Dawson Street, Dublin 2
Café en Seine’s Valentine’s Day Set Menu (€55 per person) includes a large sharing slow cooked beef short rib with triple cooked chips, grilled cabbage, mushrooms a la grecque, pepper sauce. Start with a selection of sharing dishes and finish with a warm double chocolate cookie served aesthetically in its oven dish with salt caramel ice cream melting over it.
Café en Seine has just recently over gone an interior renovation and are excited for people to experience their beautifully updated spaces.
