The posh high street favourite has confirmed its Valentine’s offering will return next month and it includes steak and a bottle of Prosecco.
For £20, lovebirds get a starter, main, side, dessert, box of chocolates and a bottle of drink.
M&S says there is 30 different options and 200 combinations to choose from, with main dishes including British rump steaks, beef Bourgignon and duck breasts in a plum sauce.
There's also scallops for starters, as well as a classic prawn cocktail and leek and cheese souffle tarts.

The priciest starter on the lavish menu is either the Coquilles St Jacques or prawn cocktail, which each cost £6.
In terms of main course, you'll save the most money by picking up one of the £10 options – either the rump steaks, chicken kiev or rack of lamb.
Put these together with the Dauphinois potatoes or cauliflower cheese – priced at £2.80 each – plus one of the £4 desserts, £1.50 box of chocolates and £12 bottle of Prosecco or pre-mixed mojito cocktail, and your meal would come to £36.30 without the deal.
M&S' Valentine's Day dine in for two offer will run from Monday, February 10, until Friday, February 14.
If you're a regular shopper, you might want to know that there's some new products on the Valentine's menu this year.
These include the grocer's beef and truffle love parcel, plus butternut and red onion en-croutes for non-meat eaters.
For those who are already planning ahead, M&S has 959 stores in the UK – although not all of these will sell food.
You can find your nearest supermarket by using the online shop finder.
Sadly M&S said the Valentine's selection food selection won't be available to order online.
In terms of competition, the M&S deal is actually the same price as Tesco's meal for two, which also costs £20.
You don't get a box of chocolates with the Tesco offering, but you do get two mains included in the price.
Asda is slightly cheaper with the supermarket selling a £15 dine in offer for couples.
Last year, the cheapest Valentine's deal was found at Aldi, which started from £6.77 for two including a main, side dish and dessert.
Aldi has yet to release details of this year's offer.
