    Kefi At The Taj Club

    The vibe here is totally Mediterranean and will make you feel like you’re on a romantic holiday in the Greek Isles. Although they have great rustic indoor seating, we recommend you go for the outdoor cabana-style setting which is on the rooftop and perfect to catch the sunset. As for the menu, you can find flavours from Greece, Spain, Morocco, Turkey, and Lebanon, which you can gorge on while sitting by the poolside to dial up the romance factor.

    Kipling Cafe

    Kipling Cafe

    Panaiyur, Chennai

    If you don’t mind travelling for a bit, this ECR cafe can be a perfect option for your date night. The white cabana setup, open bar and rooftop setting all add to the charm of this place. You can also sit in tiny huts and recreate the magic from an older time. The menu is a lovely mix of Thai, Tandoori, and even some Mediterranean delights. Wash it all down with some wine or a boozy cocktail and soak up in all the beauty of a candlelight dinner (they do that too).

    Wild Garden Cafe At Amethyst

    A favourite among the Chennaiites, Wild Garden Cafe at Amethyst also makes for a great romantic spot. Although it has indoor seating, we suggest you sit outside amidst the green that fills up the premises of Amethyst. The whole combination of the subtle lamps and ivy creeping up the chairs will make you feel like it’s just you and your date in the middle of a tiny forest. You can order some sandwiches, pasta, and more here while taking in the warm and peaceful ambiance this place offers.

    The Summer House Eatery

    Housed inside a restored bungalow, this restaurant offers some serious Pinteresty vibes. With pretty decor on the inside and also the option to enjoy some privacy in their green outdoor seating, this place can help make your date night a hit! The food here is also as pretty and fine as the restaurant decor and includes dishes like Indian Tacos, crepes, Khimchi Udon, Korean Fried Chicken, crab cakes, and more.

    Café de Paris

    Cafe De Paris

    Teynampet, Chennai

    Made to resemble a Parisian cafe, the outdoor dining at Café de Paris can add a whole lot of charm to your date night. Offering covered booths and individual tables, the outdoor area also has potted plants and hanging vines, all painting a very pretty picture, particularly in the evenings. If the weather’s acting up, you can even move inside to their one-of-a-kind, greenhouse-type glasshouse, where there’s even a stage for artists and musicians to perform. Perfect for those rainy days when romance is on the list!
