Whether you find it cheesy or romantic, there is no denying that on the one day solely dedicated to love, you will want to do something remotely special with your loved one. You may scoff at romance on any other day, make excuses about work and other things, but come Valentine's Day, you will make the effort to at least get out for an enjoyable meal.
Pune city is exploding with restaurants, some of course shutting down faster than they took to open. These are a few places we think would be a great option either for their uber romantic setting or just the for the fun they've planned on Valentine's Day!
Olive Bistro: With its white washed furniture, cozy candle light setting and glorious food, Olive Bistro is definitely one of Pune's most romantic restaurants. In the day, it's one of the prettiest restaurants in town. But at night with live bands crooning away, prettily decorated outdoor seating, and the weather adding to the ambience makes it a great spot to cuddle up over some fabulous food and a bottle of wine.
Paasha at The J W Marriott: Nothing sets the tone for love and romance quite like being 30 stories up in the sky. Paasha is one of the city's finest joints and not only does it boast of a superb aerial view, but its food and drinks are equally stunning. After all, nothing says how much you love someone like a cozy rooftop dinner at a classy lounge like Paasha in the city.
The Little Door: This relatively new restaurant in Pune is fun, quirky, and has become quite popular. This Valentine's Day, they're celebrating a special traffic light party, which means you need to wear the right colour to give out the signal you want instead of leaving it upto cupid! As you enter, you get to collect a wrist band with a colour that will let people know your intentions. Red stands for Taken, so back off! Amber stands for Taken or Single, not too sure & it's complicated! And Green says Single, so go go go!
Whatever catagory you're under, you can be assured a fun night with some great dance tracks, lovely cocktails and food, and in case we forgot to mention, unlimited 'Love shots' at the bar all night long!
Hyatt Pune Hotel: This hotel has ensured that it has something for everyone this Valentine's Day. At Eighty Eight, the all-day dining restaurant, you can have a scrumptious buffet for a lazy lunch or go further for a specially curated romantic dinner under the stars at night. If you want a really classy evening, then you could opt to dine at Baan Tao with their picturesque water garden, a violinist playing soft romantic music and chefs dishing up some delectable South East Asian food. For people who want to see a little more action instead of just dinner, the hotel has organized a special dance floor at their other restaurant Fishbowl, which ensures you have a great time dancing away.
Courtyard by Mariott City Center: The hotel has a beautiful rooftop bar Evviva, which will be offering a special three course Indian set menu dinner along with unlimited choice of wine. Despite setting the mood for your night, what's really special is that the bakery at the hotel is going all out to create special cakes and desserts themed for Valentine's day along with a special flower shop. So even if you have no time for a meal, one of the deliciously beautiful desserts and some flowers will still save the day!
Cafe Mezzuna: If you're not in the mood to go all fancy and pull out all the stops with expensive wine or a coursed meal, Cafe Mezzuna is another wonderful alternative. It's a cafe with pretty decor, a warm inviting ambience and some great food. It's not fancy, it's actually rather laid back and cozy, and works perfectly for a romantic low key meal. They also have an outdoor section if you want to enjoy the cool weather and the menu has plenty to offer including their signature pizzas.
