Fans of First Dates have been salivating over the food and cocktails for over five years now.
Now into series 11, we thought it’d be a great time to take a look at the full menu from the First Dates restaurant.
What cocktails is Merlin concocting? And how much are those steaks CiCi keeps serving?
Where is the First Dates Restuarant?
The First Dates restaurant is a popular dining venue for first-time daters in real life.
Opposite St Paul’s Cathedral in central London, the First Dates restaurant goes by the name of Paternoster Chop House when it isn’t a Wednesday night.
Fred Sirieix, CiCi Coleman, Merlin and the rest of the First Dates staff work at the restaurant full-time.
What’s On the Cocktail Menu?
Paternoster Chop House boasts a seriously long list of spirits – more than 100, to be exact.
Most guests grab a cocktail at the bar near the entrance, where Merlin shakes up a storm.

They even have a cocktail named after the show.
A ‘First Dates’ cocktail includes Barcadi, Amaretto, strawberry liqueur and double cream.
Popular choices on the show have included the Elder & Whiskey (JD Honey, elderflower, apple juice, lime, bitters) and the Not So Slow Gin Fizz (sloe gin, blueberries, mint, lemon juice, prosecco)
All cocktails range from £8.75 to £10.50.
What’s On the Food Menu?
The restaurant boasts five menus: à la carte, A Life of Pie, Saturday brunch, Sunday menu and a children’s menu.
Specialising in steak, we have seen plenty of First Daters tucking into masses of juicy red meat.
That food looks unreal 😍😍😍 #FirstDates

There’s even a colossal 400g Glocester old spot pork chop!
Freshly caught Colchester rock oysters have been a regular aphrodisiac for characters on the show, although we like the sound of Saturday brunch.
Including eggs benedict, gammon steak and American pancakes, we would love to see a Saturday morning spinoff.
