they have been some rave reviews about a place called 'my secret garden'. the menu doesn't look so interesting, but u can make up for it over dessert plus the ambience seems nice.

You can check out Hill Bistro for food and Altivo for drinks, offers you romantic atmopshere and great ambience.

Halia is pricy, you'll be lucky to get out of there for under S$100 a head.

The French Stall in Serangoon Rd is often recommended if you want French (read: supposedly romantic) food on the cheap, but I thought the food was pretty crappy. Creperie Armen on Duxton St, on the other hand, does some pretty mean crepes (sweet) and galettes (savoury), all ~S$10-20, is quite atmospheric in a ye olde Brittany kinda way and should tickle the tastebuds of any girl who likes sweet things.

One more recommendation!

Beaujolais Wine Bar, 1 Ann Siang Hill, ☎ +65-6224-2227. Cozy, romantic yet unpretentious shophouse with friendly staff, a huge wine list and generously sized eats ranging from cheese platters ($10-16) to chili con carne ($14). Wine by the glass from $10.

The food here is quite non-gourmet but the atmosphere makes up for it. The lower end of the wine is quite affordable and tasty.
