As Valentine’s Day has passed us, it’s a good reminder that date night really should be every night! After all, it's the time spent with loved ones that counts. And while dinner in front of the television may be the first thing that springs to mind for dinner during the week, why not get out of your comfort zone and make lasting memories doing something different!

We’ve put together some of our favourite ideas of ways to dine with the one you love.

Picnic under the stars

There’s nothing more romantic than a relaxing dinner under the stars. Plan a delicious meal ahead of time so it’s all ready to go. Don’t forget to check the weather and if the sky is looking clear, grab that picnic blanket and get outdoors! Timing your dinner with sunset will be a special touch for a lovely evening.

Dine out

Whether you feel like asian cuisine, a mouth watering burger, or a dining experience, pop into Warrawong Plaza for a date night with your loved one. There is even a dessert bar at Warrawong Plaza to keep all those sweet tooths happy! With over 22 places to eat, you’re bound to find a place that will suit whatever you’re craving!  

Whats more, if you dine with the one you love at Warrawong Plaza, you can win a romantic holiday for 2!

Does an exclusive and private outback retreat in Far North Queensland sound like a trip you’d like to win? All you have to do is spend $20 at one of our new restaurants or food retailers to go into the draw!

A home cooked meal

A home cooked meal

Preparing a home cooked meal together is a nice way to wind down after work and chat about your day while you cook or pre- prepared meal from Country GrocerColes and Aldi. Why not make it fun by grabbing a recipe book and opening the page at random. Whatever page you land on is the meal you get to make together!

If you’re not feeling adventurous or ready to try something new, you can never go wrong with homemade pizzas. You can cook them exactly to your liking, adding all of the (many) ingredients you wish!

Dinner with a view

Take a drive to a beautiful destination in your area. If you have the time, head about an hour out of town to make a real journey out of it. Pick a spot ahead of time so you know where you are going, but make sure it has a view! There is something about a gorgeous view that just adds to the serenity and will ensure for a relaxing night.

If you’re feeling like a more social evening with a couple of drinks to go with it, why not opt for dinner and a movie! This is a perfect way to unwind and get to know each other, especially if you and your partner have only just started dating.

Try a restaurant you’ve always wanted to go to!

If you’ve had your eye on a restaurant for a while now, there’s no better time than now to try it out! Make a fancy night of it. Get dressed up, have a glass of the best wine and order exactly what your heart (or belly) desires!

Just remember, whatever you choose, make it romantic and special.  Because they deserve
