Big Date Coming Up? Make Reservations At One Of These Candle-Lit Restaurants In Delhi

What’s love got to do with it? We think it’s all about the lighting, and #nofilters. Here’s us, because we’re such romantics, weighing in on the city’s best candle-lit restaurants. Dinner for deux, s’il vous plait.

For The High-Rollers


An iconic Delhi establishment, a recent dinner with a girl friend told us everything we need to know about how it just should be couples only for dinner. Olive has revamped their menu, more often than not serve Red Velvet Roulade on the house {you didn’t hear it here}, and the outside is perfect for all types, and phases of your romance.

To stay updated, follow them on Facebook, here.


Private canopies, enough candles and dim lighting to make any romance glow, and one of the best menus in the Capital, Sevilla doesn’t get its due. Again, on request, they will customise the menu, sprinkle rose petals, pop Champagne, and offer impeccable service, but be warned, you’re going to need to be plush with cash; Sevilla is pricey, in all caps.

Indian Accent

Everything you read about their food is spot on, we can’t praise them enough; we’ll just casually drop that they’re on the list of Asia’s 50 best restaurants. If you want the candle light to complete this meal, ask for a table outside; the inside is very brightly lit. Also, reservations are hard to come by and happen in slots only, so planning in advance is key.

Best sushi, and definitely in the running for best black cod. Ask for a table on the terrace for the candles to really take affect, and on request they’ll personalize the placard at your table. So, perhaps a welcome {insert other half’s name}, waiting for you when you arrive? Classy.

En - The Japanese Restaurant

Al fresco dining with a stunning view of Qutub Minar paired with Pan-Asian delicacies? Count us in. It has a well lit dining area and has enough space for you and your special someone to enjoy your meal with abundant privacy. En has mastery in Japanese food and offers absolutely palatable Sushi.

Book your table here.

For The {Kind-Of, Almost} Pocket-Friendly Pairs

Lodi – The Garden Restaurant

Al-fresco dining, cobble stoned flooring, and one too many nooks for if things go very well, this will top any and every romantic dining list for the capital. PS: They host gigs regularly, so we recommend you call and check before hand, if you’re looking for downtime.

Fio Cookhouse

Be warned, on the weekends, Fio turns into a party pad, with very loud music after 10.30pm, so plan for during the week, and early-ish. Tables outside are surrounded by a lot of greenery, wooden decks, and definitely let you forget you’re under a metro station. Also-cocktails, you’ll be glad the lighting is dim, when your eyes start enjoying their own kind of night.

Music & Mountains

With its charming little ambience, Music & Mountains makes this list backed by its flavourful food. Candle lit tables and some great music really make this an ideal place for your upcoming big day. Go for a coffee at brunch or for Sangria at dinner, this place will never cease to leave you in awe.


Did somebody say affordable and remarkable seafood?

If you’re looking to step up your date night with some Sushi, Guppy is your new pit stop. Their fresh food, enticing cocktails, and toothsome desserts ought to propel your date night to another level. Their dimly lit yet colourful ambience is a treat for the eyes! You’d better put this in your go-to list.
