Dinner

The original “first date” go-to, dinner dates have and always will be a favourite. After all, everyone has to eat, and getting dressed up to go for a nice meal will never go out of style. If you want to opt for a fancy night out on the town with scintillating food and drinks, head to Woolsey Creek or the 112 restaurant located in The Regent hotel. Both have excellent food and great ambiance. You might even want to try Quartermaster for a delicious steak or cocktails. They have exceptional food, great service, and inspired drinks. Of course, going out to dinner doesn’t need to break the bank if you’re on a budget, The Village idiot has a more laid back vibe with food to match. The atmosphere is funky, lively, and perfect for a casual date over beer and nachos. You might also want to try Bierhaus for more relaxed and chill energy where you can sample a wide array of craft beers and nosh on their charcuterie board while asking your date 21 questions.
