VALENTINE'S DAY IN THE HAGUE
It's almost Valentine's Day! Did you already plan anything or do you think it's all commercial rubbish? Doesn't mind which day it is, it can be a romantic day any day! That's why Foodies Have Arrived has composed a perfect and romantic day for you in The Hague.
Have a romantic trip in the Ferris Wheel
Nothing more romantic than enjoying a beautiful view together. From this Ferris Wheel at the Scheveningen pier you can see the coastal line and the city of The Hague. You can even book a special Valentine's day ticket for €10 pp. and you will get a glass of Prosecco to enjoy the view.
Have an extensive lunch
What about having a romantic pasta like a true Lady and the Vagabond? Restaurant Impero Romano in the Denneweg quarter will give you lots of options and bring you in a total Italian atmosphere. How romantic is that?! Impero Romano - Kazernestraat 146 - www.imperoromano.nl
At restaurant Lapsang you will not only steel the heart of your loved one but they will also steel yours! Lapsang is pure and authentic with a big love for great taste. They use the finest ingredients like our favourite tea from Betjeman & Barton. If you want to have a romantic picknick somewhere they will prepare you a beautiful basket.

Going shopping together can be really romantic. Especially if you go to the Denneweg. Here you can find a good balance of fashion shops for men and women. A lingerie shop, exclusive shoe wear and tea shopping at Betjeman & Barton and enough restaurants to top it of. If you want to have lunch in a great atmosphere, go to Vascobelo.

Eat Fruits de Mer
When in the Dutch city by the sea, enjoy it at the fullest and have a romantic Plateau de Fruits de Mer. Share your food with your loved one and let the aphrodisiac do it's work. There are several restaurants in and around The Hague where you can enjoy it. What about the modern Catch in the harbor of Scheveningen or the very traditional Bistro Mer? Here you will find yourself in a piece of France in the middle of the city centre of The Hague. If you only want to eat oysters and lobster, go to Restaurant Mama Kelly. The menu is simple and the atmosphere is great in an old factory. In Voorburg, there is even a restaurant named Fruits de Mer.

Sharing and tasting
At the Denneweg there are so many restaurants and wine bars to choose from. So going here for dinner is always a good idea. At restaurant Dekxels you can share small plates, all with a mediterranean and asian influence. The atmosphere is really good and intimate. Read more about it in our review of Dekxels.

Sleep like a royal
The Hague has a new and hip hotel in a former bank building, just opposite of the city palace Noordeinde. Hotel Indigo is located in the most exclusive shopping area of The Hague and with the royals just opposite your stay will be unique. Maybe you wake up, open your curtains and wave to King Willem Alexander or Queen Maxima.

As foodies we like to wonder off to other places. So for us there is nothing more romantic than surprising us with the perfect French croissant aux amandes or pain au chocolat. You can get the best ones at Philippe Galerne. Read all about it in our Philippe Galerne review.
