Cupid has fired his arrows and they’ve landed here at Food24 - because today we’ve picked our winners for the Eat, Love, Enter romantic review giveaway!

Mr Romantic  has stolen our hearts with his review of Kalk Bay’s famous Polana Restaurant, you'll most definitely want to go there after reading it!  But the winner for the grand Nobu prize goes to Reinmar and partner for the review of their night of romance at the Greenhouse Restaurant at the Cellars-Hohenort Hotel and they’ll be dining at Nobu with their very own Omakase Valentine’s Menu.

Also getting an honourable mention in this year’s romantic line-up from the fairest Cape are Mange Tout in Franschhoek, The Blowfish Restaurant in Blouberg, The Duchess of Wisbeach in Seapoint and one of Cape Town’s favourites, The Roundhouse, getting the nod from Nina.

From Gauteng, Ashley has given EI8HTEEN the big thumbs up and for his poetic efforts he’ll be very well looked after at his very favourite romantic restaurant. Nice.

Other romantic Gauteng hotspots are Longmeadow Restaurant and Piano Lounge, our reader 7ate9 is just in love with The Patisserie and highly recommended for a romantic night out in Pretoria is Die Werf

In Durban its Market in Morningside that seems to be favourite amongst romantics, but the review that steals the show has got to be Debbie’s one for Marco’s Italian in Windermere.  Well done Debbie, you and whomever you wish to take with you will be welcomed in style and wined and dined at Moyo uShaka Pier.

A special mention goes to Marita from Port Elizabeth – we loved her romantic review of De Kelder and she’ll be getting a R250 Kalahari Voucher from Food24.

There is certainly NO shortage of places to go this year– just check out all the fun and funky Valentine’s stuff going on.  

No excuses people. Book that table. You know where to go.
