Love Is In The Air: These 5 Restaurants In Gurgaon Are Perfect For Candle Light Dinners

Maanya posted on 21 August

Cheesy maybe, but few things can set the mood for anniversary dinners {or proposals!} like a candle-lit dinner. Whatever the occasion, reserve a table for you and your date at one of these 5 restaurants in Gurgaon for a meal to remember.


Located on Golf Course Road, Impromptu wins extra points for its ambience – think stunning outdoor seating, pretty lights, a view of Gurgaon’s impressive skyline and an equally romantic indoor area. The cocktails are potent, yet well-mixed, and we’d recommend the Tropical Sangria or the Pimms Cocktail.

As far as food goes, if you’ve been dating a while, get your hands kinda messy with their Butter Chicken; otherwise, play it safe {and clean} with a bowl of pasta.

Amaranta, The Oberoi

Soft instrumental music, champagne sorbets and regional food with a twist – Amaranta at The Oberoi is highly-recommended for foodie couples. Get yourself the Koliwada Style Fish N Chips {with a side of beer and bhang sorbet!}, the Kerala Toddy Fish and the Vegetable Chettinad Curry with meaty utthapams.

Finish with the Pondicherry Teacake with a scoop of Filter Coffee ice cream.

Zanotta - The Leela Ambience

Fancypants, you’ll fit in nicely at Zanotta. Complete with a wine cellar, stellar views of the city and Italian fare, this restaurant at the Leela Ambience is definitely anniversary material. Make sure you have the candle and the conversation sorted, and let Zanotta impress your date with their Eggplant Parmigiano and Panna Cotta.

The Wine Company

One of Cyber Hub’s most romantic spots, The Wine Company checks all the boxes for a perfect, candle-lit dinner. Peach Melba Sangria, sharing platters {we love their Flamed Pear & Port-cooked Mushroom with Goat’s Cheese bruschetta and the Pan Fried Pork Belly with Cilantro & Crispy Coconut} and a candle that separates you and your date – what more could you want?

Thai Pavillion

Plush interiors, ambient lighting and 5-star hospitality, Thai Pavillion – Vivanta by Taj is definitely splurge-worthy. Pop open a bottle of wine, share a plate of Pad Thai, stir fried prawns in chilli paste and finish with what is is arguable one of the nicest lemon tarts in all of Gurgaon. All while you and #bae are bathed in the soft glow of candle-light.
