Before you do surprise your partner, here are a few things you should keep in mind!

– Always make reservations beforehand. You don’t want to keep your partner waiting. It’ll ruin the vibe of the date.
– Inform them about the dress code. If it is a formal affair and they end up wearing ripped jeans, you’re bound to get an earful about it.
– Read up about the restaurant before you visit, so you have a basic idea about the food and drinks that are recommended and loved. You don’t want to be stuck with a lack of options if you are following a non-meat or special diet.
Now, it’s time to have a look at the most romantic restaurants in Mumbai, according to the popular areas.
