Valentine’s Day Dinner Date Suggestions


When in Manila and would like to impress your  significant other this coming Valentine’s Day,  we’d like to recommend to you 3 top notch restaurants that will surely  leave an impression to last a lifetime!



I fell in-love with these restos since I started working in Makati last year and I just can’t stop talking about them! It was truly a privilege  when I got the chance to shoot their wonderful Christmas menu last season and now that I did their Valentine’s Day menu for 2013, I’ve decided to blog about it for our readers who have been asking for our Valentine’s Day Dinner Date recommendations!



All 3 restaurants come from the same group which own Santis Delicatessen – the country’s #1 deli store and  provider of the finest European luxury products headed by the legendary Werner Berger. If you’re familiar with Santis Deli‘s high class products and fresh ingredients, then imagine 3 restos using only them! 



 Valentine Menu I'm Angus Steakhouse  Mae Ilagan-14






 Carpaccio Ristorante Italiano‘s Valentine’s Day Menu for only P1,000-net per head!

(Choice of 1 appetizer or soup, 1 main course , dessert and a cup of coffee or tea)





If you haven’t tried Italian fine dining yet, then I highly recommend you try out the exquisite dishes at Carpaccio Ristorante Italiano. Despite the countless Italian restos around the metro, I would say that Carpaccio would be one of those few Italian restos where quality really matters! Unlike other restaurants which are too focused on pizzas and pastas, the menu at Carpaccio offers a more interesting array of Italian choices which guarantees a very different Italian fine dining experience.



Before reading about  their Valentine’s Day Menu, allow me to show you some of my recommendations!
