Ithink shar­ing food is im­por­tant whether it’s a ro­man­tic meal or not, but when it is a date you want to be there for at least three hours – en­joy­ing the wine and spend­ing your time over the food to­gether. Plus, you don’t want to leave the restau­rant feel­ing bloated from eat­ing too much. My favourite ro­man­tic restau­rant is Azur­mendi by Eneko Atxa. It’s sit­u­ated right in the heart of the moun­tains in Basque Coun­try with the most amaz­ing views sur­rounded by lush green­ery. What I love: the en­tire restau­rant is made from glass, so that ev­ery ta­ble is be­side a “win­dow” for din­ers to en­joy the lush scenery. It’s also per­fect for ro­man­tic oc­ca­sions as the ta­bles are strate­gi­cally placed (far away from each other) so you can en­joy each other’s com­pany away from pry­ing eyes and ears. Azur­mendi is also home to a herb gar­den and wine cel­lar. Any­one you take there is sure to be im­pressed. That’s a Nieves Barragán guar­an­tee!
