Don’t forget to top these dishes off with a dozen red roses, romantic card and an ‘I love you, honey bunch!’

Seafood dishes

Seafood is the food of romance and passion.

This Valentine’s Day, spoil your love with a seafood dinner. Whether it’s a delicious pan-fried barramundi served with tiger prawns, an indulgent prawn sensations dish, or salmon dusted with lemon myrtle and coconut; seafood is the flavour of the day.

Steak dishes

Prime Rib Steak at Hog's Breath

A tender, juicy cut of steak is the ultimate ‘splurge’ dish for Valentine’s Day. Nothing celebrates decadence more than red meat that’s flame grilled and dripping with flavour. 18 hour, slow cooked prime rib or lamb shanks are popular for Valentine’s date night.

Some like it hot

To spice it up a bit, try a prime rib served with a delicious Byron Bay chilli sauce.

The classics

For a traditional touch, serve steak with bearnaise, Dianne or creamy mushroom sauce.

Share a dessert

Chocolate mud cake at Hog's Breath Cafe with custard and ice-cream

What could be more romantic than sharing a devilish dessert? A rocky road sundae, with layers of chocolate fudge sauce, chocolate mud cake, whipped cream and strawberry topping is cheeky and fun. This dish is the ‘Life is made for fun!’ way to celebrate.

Try chocolate fondue served with fresh strawberries and chocolate dipping sauce. Nothing says romance more than strawberries and chocolate.

Dinner in bed

Sometimes, the most romantic dinner setting is at home. Get home delivery and enjoy restaurant quality meals in a way that suits you. Light some candles, play your favourite tunes and cuddle on the sofa. Finish your meal with a decadent dessert – in bed, of course.
