With its breathtaking natural beauty, bountiful harvests from the land and the sea, a profusion of world-class culinary talent, and incredibly romantic ambiance, Cape Cod has more than its fair share of romantic restaurants that provide the perfect setting for a dazzling night out.
For seven courses of culinary heaven, visit Chillingsworth Restaurant. Chillingsworth still holds the mantle for the best dining experience on all of Cape Cod. All the superlatives -- exquisite food, outstanding service, enviable wine list, romantic ambiance -- come with a price, but one so worthwhile that the only difficulty comes in acquiring a reservation. The menu changes seasonally, with options such as carpaccio of veal with truffle oil, and loin of lamb with fig tart.
A truly romantic dining experience in a rustic setting could be had at the Red Pheasant. You'll probably experience the best meal you will ever have in this 200-year-old barn. The cozy restaurant serves American and French cuisine and uses local produce and ingredients whenever possible. The menu changes with the seasons but entrees can include duckling, lamb, veal and salmon. The fireplaces, glass and pottery by Cape Cod artists and the lush flower garden make for a romantic dinner setting. The wine list here is extensive and superb.
The Regatta of Cotuit, in a 1790 stagecoach mansion, contains eight romantic dining rooms, making it popular with lovebirds. One of the best dining experiences on the Cape features three menus -- a moderately-priced three-course dinner menu, a lighter menu, and the full dinner menu. Menu items include pistachio-encrusted salmon, shrimp tempura, or filet mignon with Stilton cheese. Open year-round with a full liquor license, the mansion also features a lively piano bar. Step inside these romantic Cape Cod restaurants and have that magical dining experience you've long been dreaming of.
