There are four set menus to choose from which will be available from 9 February.
You also don’t have to stick to the set menus, you can mix and match the dishes if you prefer.
What are the four Valentine’s set menus?
Aldi is offering a special heart-shaped three-course meal for just £5.17 or £9.16 with wine.
It features mini garlic pizza breads, lobster pasta and pancakes - and a bottle of prosecco.
Meat-eaters can enjoy the set menu of Wagyu pies with triple cooked chips and chocolate profiteroles for £10.47.
Pairing a bottle of Grapevine Argentinian Malbec wine will bump the price to £14.46.
The next menu is for seafood lovers, including a prawn and scallop thermidor followed by a prawn and white wine salmon wellington.
You can add a potato dauphinoise and a bottle of Cambalala Savignon Blanc wine for £14.16.
Lastly, the vegan Valentine option is two plant-based burgers, a vegetable medley and a vegan molten middle heart with a bottle of Merlot for £10.16.
How does it compare to last year?
Last year, there was no official meal deal but the cheapest combo you could have got was £7.55 not including booze.
You could have had chicken wings with buffalo and blue cheese sauce to start for £1.69.
For main, two vegan No Beef Bourguignon Pies were £1.69 each, with a side of heart shaped Garlic Bread at 99p.
To finish you could have 36 Mini Pancakes for just £1.49.
Aldi also had Scottish oysters, sirloin steaks, duck with plum sauce and profiteroles on the menu last year.
