A romantic evening in the big city can be hard to set aside with so many things to do. Most of the time, couples looking for a romantic meal will find themselves either near or in one of the many malls in Jakarta. Each mall has a range of restaurants that make a romantic meal for two possible even if you are not heading to one of the famous restaurants on the busy streets outside. To get you seated and enjoying a romantic evening here are eight restaurants that you can find inside malls in Jakarta, perfect for a romantic meal for two.

Nam Thai

With a wide variety of delicious dishes all reasonably priced and some very comfortable seating, Nam Thai is perfect for a romantic meal for two. The menu is filled with smaller bites for sharing and larger dishes that will leave you very satisfied. Also, if you book ahead, the PIK Avenue site has some very romantic booth seating.

Café Milano

Resembling a traditional Milanese trattoria complete with terracotta floors, comfortable leather booths, and natural mood lighting, Café Milano is perfect for a romantic meal for two. The menu is filled with delicious offerings that you will enjoy sharing with someone special, and the Aperol Spritz, Milano Torino or a glass of crisp Pinot Grigio will have you toasting the evening.

One of the most famous Omakase restaurants in the city, Tatemukai is only able to be enjoyed by booking ahead. The menu is chosen by the chef and seating is rather limited. This exclusivity makes it perfect for celebrating something special or just treating your partner to a meal they will never forget.

Social House

A popular hangout for many businesspeople after a long day due to the mix of both amazing food and drinks on the delicious menu, Social House is filled with many possible dark and comfortable corners in which to have a private meal. The setting is both romantic and lively enough to make the evening fun.

Union Deli

As well as having a hearty menu and lively atmosphere, Union Deli has some amazing cakes. These colourful creations are perfect for celebrating a special occasion with someone who has a sweet tooth. The small tables make it a great place to feel a little bit separated from the busy mall and other customers.   


Very few cuisines say romance better than French, and if you find yourself in the Bellagio Boutique Mall, then OhLALA MASION is a safe choice. Reminiscent of quintessential casual French cafés, the atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious, which makes it perfect for a nicely personal romantic meal.

BAE by Socieaty

Housed on the lower ground floor of Senayan City, BAE by Socieaty has a reputation for being a great place to socialise and relax. Due to its popularity, it is a good idea to book ahead as it can be busy. If you are lucky enough to book a table then you can enjoy a comfortable leather seat and romantic mood lighting.

Cork n Screw

Although many people would assume that Cork n Screw is too lively and loud to be seen as a romantic setting for a meal, they would be wrong. The separation of different areas allows for the possibility of romantic setting—combine that with one of the best wine lists in the city and you will have the possibility of enjoying an amazing meal for two.
