There are still many restaurants that have space for Valentine’s Day. If you’re wanting a formal dinner setup, Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront has you covered, with a five-course sit-down dinner.
A vegetarian menu is available on request. If you are looking for something more relaxed, then why not try out some cupcake and wine pairing at Marianne Wine Estate in Stellenbosch? This pairing is available from 14 to 17 February. But have a look around, there are still many places with space for 14 February.
A night away
Well, this one is always a winner. A romantic escape for two always makes for a great Valentine’s Day surprise. If you and your significant other can get away on 14 February (it’s a Thursday night), then that would be first prize. But if not, then try for the weekend that follows.
There are many accommodation options available on Airbnb across South Africa and it doesn’t have to be too far out or break the bank either. You can try for an inner-city apartment, a winelands escape or perhaps even something near the coast? Think ahead and perhaps plan what you’re having for dinner and some fun Valentine’s activities for a romantic night in. If you have the budget for it, then you can also look into booking a hotel room where you could call ahead to request a romantic turndown before you arrive.
