Six spots guaranteed to make you (and your date) swoon
Time Out Bahrain staff
Camelot Nothing injects a bit of romance quite like a date in a faux castle. It might sound bizarre but combine French flavours with dim lighting, medieval décor and a bit of vino, and you have a swoon-worthy date night on your hands. You can also try their 'moules et frites' night where unlimited mussels and chips are on offer, or, even better, the weekly vino tasting. Block 338 (1771 7745).
La Fontaine It goes to show just how romantic this place is when you consider they also host intimate weddings in their stunning courtyard. Picture it: you're eating great European food by candlelight while contemporary art and traditional architecture surround you in this haven of tranquility. Now's the time to pop the question. Ras Ruman (1723 0123).
La Mer Sitting right on the water with the waves gently lapping against the shore, while attentive staff mill about and you tuck in to some of Bahrain's best seafood dishes - this is what romantic dreams are made of. Wrap up your evening with one of their delightful desserts and you'll be on cloud nine in no time. Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa (1763 6363).
Maki It's clean, it's modern and it's funky at Maki so it's high up on our list of great date spots. Indulge in a vast array of Japanese and fusion dishes that are exclusive to this brand while supping on their eclectic beverages and enjoying your loved one's company. Moda Mall (1752 2733).
Muju Contemporary international cuisine in a stunning yet chic seaside environment is what awaits you at Muju in Amwaj Islands. The ocean views through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows are spectacular, the food is top notch and the venue's choice of music is always spot on with jazzy vibes. It makes for quite a memorable date night. Dragon Hotel & Resort (1603 1111).
Plums Looking to impress your date with something on the higher end? This dark and intimate steakhouse offers modern, gourmet twists on classic dishes in an increasingly contemporary environment. Expect an amuse bouche and extra goodies to your table throughout the evening, alongside top quality ingredients and fine vinos. Plus, the professional service tops it all off. The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain, Hotel & Spa (1758 0000).
