Low key date night locations


With a great match comes great date expectation. We’ve once again sought advice from the food gurus at Zomato, the largest food discovery platform in the world to let us know where you can beat the date heat.

For a low key no pressure date night, here’s what you need to know.

You’ve matched, you’ve met, or maybe you’re meeting for the first time; how do you find the perfect mix between dining delight and a funds friendly experience? Fine dining no longer means splashing your weekly wage on a 10 course degustation, it comes down to the food quality, wine choice, and of course the company you spend it with!

A low key date night doesn’t mean you’re allowed to forget your table manners, chewing with your mouth open and licking the plate clean are still no-go zones. No pressure dating is all about comfort and not being afraid to order your favourite pasta and mispronouncing the name.

We’ve eaten far and wide and sipped on some serious wine to create Low Key Date Nights, Zomato’s latest collection to kiss your nerves goodbye and pick up the dating pace. See below for our top picks from the collection:
