Worlds collide and time stops in this alfresco Mediterranean restaurant. The beautiful white walls, pebbled courtyard, a canopy of the Banyan tree and the starry tree-top terrace bar... there's hardly anything your significant other wouldn't approve of. Olive Bar & Kitchen is set in the time of the prohibition era when cocktails were served in teacups and the entertainment was live bands, silent cinema, and floor shows. They offer the best martinis in town whipped up by their celebrity bartender Zdenek Kastanek along with delicious food and eclectic music in the most beautiful setting. You've got to add this restaurant to your list of the best restaurant in Delhi for couples.

However, it is a reality come true for those who appreciate class, elegance and luxury dining all combined into one. Specialising mostly in French and Italian Cuisines, this place also serves imported liquor along with innovative refreshing cocktails and mocktails. When it's about the best romantic settings in the city, Leela Palace usually pops up first on the list. And to have a romantic candlelight dinner in their premises is a chance you shouldn't miss.

One of Delhi’s most romantic setups, the ambience of Fio is fabulous and made even better with the pleasing music in the background. The seating is surrounded by lush greenery and beautiful flowers. The food tastes scrumptious and a sight for the sore eyes. Since it is a fine dining restaurant, the prices are on the higher side but every minute spent here makes up for the dough you spent. We highly recommend their delicious Paprika Thyme Chicken and a drink called HotWired. If you give it a chance, Fio can turn out to be the best place for first dates in Delhi. It's a must-go place for couples in the city!
