Romantic Dinner Recipes - A Meal for Romance

Are you looking for some interesting and delicious romantic dinner recipes?

One of the most romantic things that you can do for your partner is to make them a wonderful meal. Even if you don't consider yourself a great cook, there are some simple recipes out there that taste great and are easy to make.

For instance, a nice salad, a simple pasta dish, and a cake are almost always appreciated.

Of course, if you want to go that extra mile and prepare something really special, then that's always appreciated, too. The following is a sample romantic dinner recipe consisting of a salad, filet mignon, and chocolate mousse - guaranteed to make anyone's mouth water!

Pre-dinner drink (Bellini)

This is a peach Bellini recipe, but you don't necessarily have to use peach itself. You can actually use whatever flavor you want.


  • 2 ounces of peach nectar
  • 1 ounce of peach schnapps
  • 3 ounces of chilled, dry Champagne
  • 1/2 cup of crushed ice
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • Dash of Grenadine


    Add all of the ingredients in a blender and mix to your desired consistency. Some people prefer their Bellinis to be smooth, while others like theirs to be a little chunkier. You might want to experiment with yours until you get it the consistency that you prefer.

    Salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing

    The food of romantic dinner recipes can be kicked off with a nice and healthy salad.

    Ingredients (salad):

  • Red and green bell peppers
  • Romaine lettuce
  • 1 green avocado
  • 1 red onion


    For this part of our romantic dinner recipe, first, tear the lettuce into bite size pieces and place in a salad bowl, or a large bowl. Next, cut the peppers, onion, and avocado up into small pieces as well and add them to the lettuce. Using salad tongs, mix the ingredients together.

    Ingredients (dressing):

  • 3 tablespoons of Grey Poupon mustard
  • 1/2 cup of raspberry wine
  • 1/4 cup of ground hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup of wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese (fresh is best)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of rosemary
  • 1/2 large lemon, squeezed
  • 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper
  • 1 pinch of cardamom


    Simply mix all of the ingredients together in a separate bowl and then pour over your salad. If you have a nut allergy, then you can leave the hazelnuts out of this part of our romantic dinner recipe. Some people also find that using raspberry preserves instead of the raspberry wine is a good way of adding texture, as well as juice, to the dressing.

    Filet mignon

    The main course is of course an important part of romantic dinner recipes!


  • 2 (4 ounce) filet mignon steaks
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine
  • 1 cup olive oil


    Pour the olive oil onto a plate and sprinkle most of the black pepper into the oil. Next, dip the edges of both steaks into the olive oil so that all of the sides are coated with the black pepper / olive oil concoction.

    Take the rest of the black pepper and sprinkle it onto both sides of the steaks.

    Using a nonstick skillet, heat it over medium-high heat. Once hot, place the steaks in the hot pan and cook them for 1 minute on both sides. (Or until they are browned.)

    Reduce the heat to medium-low and then add the balsamic vinegar and red wine to the steaks.

    Cover the skillet and cook the steaks for 4 minutes on each side. When you turn the steaks over, make sure that you baste them with the sauce.

    Take the steaks out of the skillet, place them on a warm plate, and serve them right away.

    Chocolate mousse

    And, finally, romantic dinner recipes should be rounded off with a yummy sweet dessert.


  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 2 tablespoons of boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of shaved chocolate


    Using a small bowl, combine the cold water and unflavored gelatin. Let this stand for 1 minute and then add the boiling water. Stir.

    Using a separate bowl, mix the whipping cream, sugar, cocoa, and vanilla together. Beat the mixture on medium speed until the mixture is stiff. Make sure that you occasionally scrape the bottom of the bowl.

    Next, add the gelatin mixture and beat it until it is well blended.

    Spoon the mixture into glasses and sprinkle with shaved chocolate pieces.

    We hope you and your partner enjoy this particular romantic dinner recipe!
