A Selection Of Saucy Valentine’s Day Date Ideas Around Perth
Valentine’s Day – corporate holiday or chance to show your loved ones how much you love them? Either way, it’s nice to do nice things with the people you care about, and if it so happens to be on February 14, then we say go for it! We understand how difficult it can be to find something to do with or somewhere to take your S.O. on Valentine’s Day, which is why we’ve done a bit of the leg work for you and listed a bunch of potential ideas…
Dine A Little Differently at UMA or Ten Acre Block
Underneath the Pan Pacific Hotel in East Perth you’ll find two of Perth’s best restaurants, both hosting delicious Valentine’s dinners. You can celebrate in Peruvian style at UMA’s Dia del Amor, with a bespoke four course set menu including Tiradito Verano, Cone Bay barramundi cured with a zesty aji amarillo, mango leche de tigre, Executive Sous Chef Xerxes’ Bodhanwala and a complimentary Chi Chi Pisco cocktail on arrival. If vegan dining is more your flavour, award-winning plant-based restaurant Ten Acre Block is also putting on a four set set menu curated by Head Chef Gianni Moretto, featuring a strawberry and basil mojito on arrival – yum!
Get Strangely In Love At Strange Company
Join Strange Company as a couple, throuple, singles meet up or just pull up to the bar for a night of candlelit cocktails, sparkling wine, and delicious food. Choose from a sous vide octopus, lamb cutlets or a house made pasta, balanced with fresh vegetables as you go on a trip to the Mediterranean. $120/couple – bookings here.
Make It A Romantic Rendezvous in Rockingham
We recently went on a deep dive into the romantic potential of Rockingham – award winning restaurants, skydiving, snorkelling, SUPping and cute penguins! The list goes on – if you’re looking for something a little outside the box then check out the article here.
Book A Romantic City Staycay
Nothing beats a romantic hotel stay, just to give you a chance to check out of normal life with a special someone. And we recently did a bit of research to find seven of Perth’s most romantic hotels – check ’em out and getting book HERE.
Enjoy A Greek Feast At Brika
Celebrate Valentine’s with that special someone over a gorgeous Greek feast – their special Valentine’s menu is $69pp, and you’ll get started with a glass of bubbles of oysters. Bookings here.
Get Cosy With Your Boo At Cosy Del’s
What’s more romantic than a cosy dinner with your beloved? Cosy Del’s will sort you out with their special Valentine’s Day menu – for $55 per person, you’ll be treated to a four course menu that features house made focaccia, Gingin heirloom tomato with stracciatella, wattleseed pappardelle and much more, all with a glass of sparkling on arrival. Make sure to book ahead – it’s cosy by name, and by nature!
Tango For Two At La Cholita’s
Celebrate Valentine’s in true La Cholita style – washing down a few spicy fish tacos with an icy cold mango margarita or two. On Monday night only they’ll be slinging these specials, featuring Tequila blanco, Mezcal, triple sec, fresh lime juice, mango and served frozen in a glass with chilli salt rim – two for $29! Book ahead.
Share a Romantic Tiny’s Chicken For Two
There ain’t nothing sweeter than sharing a roast chook with your main squeeze – and even better when you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Tiny’s is brining their iconic chook to you, and not just for V-Day. Available Wednesday to Saturday, you can treat yourself to all of their favourites, with drink pairing recommendations and even a disco playlist. If you prefer to leave it all to the experts, they’re also putting on a stellar Valentine’s menu at the restaurant itself, just for Saturday the 12th. Bookings and info HERE.
Movies Under The Stars
Warm February nights are prime time for outdoor movies under the stars – check out Perth’s best outdoor cinemas HERE – where plenty of them have romantic movies on show!
Indulge In Bottomless Oysters At Miss Chow’s
Miss Chow’s in South Perth has already sold out one of her Valentine’s events, so she’s throwing a special second party for last minute lovebirds. For $100 per person you can enjoy bottomless freshly shucked oysters and bubbles on the Swan. There’s only 30 spots available, so get on board here.
Zoocoustics @ Perth Zoo
Perth Zoo’s popular acoustic night Zoocoustics is back by popular demand, strumming into the Zoo Saturday 12 and Monday 14 February. Set within the lush gardens of the Perth Zoo, there’ll be food trucks if you don’t bring your own picnic and drinks (BYO, responsibly), with live acoustic sessions courtesy of some stellar local artists – get all the info/tickets HERE.
Get Frisky At Fringe
The carnival of fun and frivolity that is Fringe Festival is back in town, and conveniently finishes up with the last day falling on Valentine’s Day! There are of course hundreds of shows to choose from, we’ve done a tiny bit of the work for you by limiting your search to the Valentine’s WEEKEND, but the rest is up to you!
Bask In One Of Perth’s Beautiful Wine Courtyards
We’re not sure if “wine courtyards” is a thing or not, but we coined the phrase late last year and it’s turned into one of our MOST VIEWED ARTICLES. Nothing beats a leafy, shady courtyard + wine combo with a loved one, and Perth’s got plenty to choose from.

Darts And Love Hearts
Book a spot for you and your lover at Flight Club this Valentine’s Day and quote ‘val day’ when booking to score a free trophy cocktail to share, then dart the night away.
Take A Together Hike
Long walks on the beach are so passé – tough, intense bush walks are the way of the future. Just joking…kinda. We do love getting out into nature these days, and Perth has plenty of great walking trails both close to the city and a little further out. Plus there’s plenty of options for the slightly more serious adventurer, just decide early who is in charge of the map and don’t forget the water and sunscreen!
