Expresso Valentines Day Top Picks


If you're stumped on what to do with that someone special this Valentine's Day, check out some of the top picks from our Expresso crew!


The Big Wheel at the Waterfront

“The view from the top is so romantic, and there's also no one to interrupt your special time with your valentine. You can also surprise your valentine with a picnic while you enjoy the view.”


Lucy Williams – Receptionist

Sunset on the beach, with a bottle of wine

“It's perfect for Valentines Day because you get to share a special moment with that special someone.”

Kaylen Stone – Décor Intern



Tiger's Milk

“If it’s trendy vibe your after, you cannot go wrong with Tiger’s Milk! They have amazing food and a fantastic atmosphere - I give them two thumbs up. And there's one in Muizenberg, and in Kloof Street, Cape Town.

Le Petit Tarte or Piano Bar

“Le Petit Tarte is very intimate and quaint, and everything there feels home made and quirky, and Piano Bar is great for all the jazz lovers out there.”

Eckardt Groenewald – Account Manager



Tangoroa Strawberry Farm

“I'd suggest going to the Tangaroa Strawberry Farm, about 50 km from The TicketPro Dome in Johannesburg, where you and your other half and enjoy a romantic picnic on the banks of Hartbeespoortdam. In addition to the view, the farm has various picnic basket specials to choose from and amazing spa treatments on offer. Although strawberries are not in season, the outing still promises a farm feeling and escape from the city.”

Babysit for a friend who celebrates Valentine's Day

“My boyfriend and I don't celebrate Valentines Day, but what we do is babysit for one of his brothers so that they can go out and enjoy a special and romantic evening.”

Maria Kroes – Stylist



The Galileo Open Air Cinema

“A romantic movie surrounded by the beautiful outdoors is a great way to finish off a Valentines Day dinner”


Sibulele Nyati – Content Producer

“This is my all time favourite. Located in the beautiful little Kalk Bay, it is the perfect setting for a romantic night out. It isn’t too far out of the city, and is very affordable! They honestly serve some of the best pizza’s you’ll find. It’s low key, nothing fancy, but your taste buds will have an absolute feast.”

W: SatoriKalkBay

Try something new

“It's not so much about doing something romantic, more about making time to do things together that we always say we want to do but never get around to doing. Like redecorating at home, being tourists in our own city, taking a road trip out of town, or going to a cool market, restaurant or brewery we've never been but always say we want to go.”

Pretoria National Botanical Gardens

“If you are in the mood for more social Valentines Day celebrations, you should check out a concert at the Pretoria National Botanical Garden. Pack a picnic basket and a blanket, and enjoy an evening in the open air with guest stars including Shimza, Black Coffee, Oskido, Crazy White Boy, Skeelo and Holly on Saturday 14 February. The top-class music, while enjoying lekker summer weather outside is what makes this a pretty special experience.”


Idele Prinsloo – Segment Producer




“Located in the Waterfront, Mondiall is an absolute MUST - their burgers will blow you away!”


Andrew Conradie – Account Manager
