If you’re stuck in a corner table, or just don’t fancy proposing with an audience, choose a London restaurant with a viewing platform. You’ll get the privacy you need – and a spectacular skyline to act as a backdrop for your first selfies as an engaged couple.
One gentleman took this advice when he proposed at Galvin At Windows, sharing his experience on tripadvisor: “I was going to propose to my girlfriend on her 30th birthday. I spoke to one of the guys [at the restaurant and] he said that he would take us out on to the balcony and there no one would see [us]. So after the mains, he took us through the kitchen … my girlfriend’s face was a picture, and he led us to the balcony. 28 floors up, stunning views, I got down on one knee and after she said yes, fireworks for the concert in Hyde Park went off!”
