If anyone knows anything about passion, it’s the Greeks. Which is why, if you’re looking for a Chester restaurant with a romantic vibe, we suggest you check this place out. Serving up “Greek cuisine and a selection of Mediterranean dishes with modern twists”, it’s a great place to relax with your other half (or potential other half). Their moussaka is to die for and their tzatziki is one of the best we’ve tasted, really your main issue here is how you’ll fit out their door.39-41 Watergate Row, Chester, United Kingdom, CH1 2LE Book Olive Tree Brasserie
If you’re a horse-racing fan, we’ve got the perfect spot for you. Even if you’re not though, this restaurant, overlooking the UK’s oldest race-course is a pretty cool place to eat dinner. And the food’s not bad too, with classic British ingredients like black pudding, ham hock, and goats cheese featuring prominently on the menu. Fear not though, it’s not pub grub (much as we love a burger or a steak pie at ResDiary) as the chefs have impressive twists on every dish. When dinner is done, head up to their super cool bar, The Roof, to really show your date a great night.The Racecourse, Chester, United Kingdom, CH1 2LY Book 1539 Restaurant
