For Valentine's Day Rasoi by Vineet will be tantalising tastebuds with a four course set menu - they're keeping it secret at the moment but it's safe to say it's going to feature Vineet's trademark take on modern Indian cuisine mixed in with a healthy dose of exciting kitchen experimentation!

This Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa restaurant ticks all of our Valentine's Day boxes! The venue is modestly sized and tastefully decorated, the lighting is dim and romantic, and the food is a little taste of heaven. If you feel like sampling something a bit more exotic than the usual Valentine's fare, then Wok's set menu is your best bet - the cuisine here is some of the most authentic Vietnamese we've tasted in Bahrain.

CUT by Wolfgang Puck
Executive Chef Ben Small will be sharing the love this Valentine's with an enchanting five course dinner at the Four Seasons Bahrain's American steak eatery. Reflecting Wolfgang Puck's signature culinary style of fusing classic French techniques with Asian and California-influenced aesthetics, the food at CUT is off the chart, and Valentine's is going to be no exception. Featuring beluga caviar from the Caspian Sea, Australian wagy and USDA prime beef, and an epicurean raspberry dessert, the set menu is looking mouthwateringly good. In-case you haven't been, the interior is a visual feast of modern contemporary design with baked oak, bronze and leather materials lending a warm feel.
