Six by Nico, Spring Gardens

Six By nico
Combining fine dining with extravagant menus and exquisite surroundings, the hugely popular Six by Nico should be at the top of your list when choosing where to spend your date night.

Its quirky menu concept consists of a six-course tasting menu that chef Nico Simeone cultivates every six weeks. It spans a range of unexpected and devilishly delicious dishes, ranging from a posh chippy tea ensemble one week to Mexican flavours the next.

The menu is impressive, and the set-up is romantic, but it doesn’t come with the flashiness of fine dining.

With a buzzing atmosphere packed to the rafters with people on dates, after-work dinner and friends enjoying time together, it’s the perfect place to take in the sights and smells of world cuisine with someone special.
