Restaurant description

Found on the west side of the 32nd floor of London’s skyline-dominating Shard building, Rainer Becker's Oblix offers his signature style of upscale, sophisticated, urban dining. A flash open kitchen, complete with mesmerising spit roast and sizzling charcoal grill, brings a touch of theatre to the clean-cut, minimalist dining room.

Alongside succulent meats from the rotisserie and supremely fresh seafood dishes, the Oblix menu features a range of luxury meat cuts finished on the josper grill. Enjoy dishes like lamb chops with harissa and yoghurt, grilled Dover sole with parsley butter or Porterhouse steak to share. Diners can be directed through the staggering wine list at the interactive sommelier station: the first of its kind in London. Choose from cherry-picked international bottles, and peruse some of the world’s most-prized vintages.

Afternoon tea at Oblix West pays homage to the capital, blending ingredients sourced from favourite local purveyors found throughout London. The super-slick bar at Oblix in London offers a more relaxed vibe, with guests treated to express deli options and decadent weekend brunches, while a visionary cocktail menu offers mixes designed to match the food.

In one of London’s most sought-after settings, Oblix West at The Shard is a 3-minute walk from London Bridge stations.

Oblix operates a smart dress code. Gym trainers, running shoes, flip flops, sports wear, and baseball caps are not allowed. Please note any decision regarding the suitability of a guest's appearance will be entirely at the discretion of the management.

    We had an amazing experience at the Oblix west. The manager moved us to a window seat when we asked if we could move and they even wrote ‘Happy anniversary’ on one of the dishes (we were celebrating our day). Overall fantastic staff, great food and amazing scenery. The manager with the glasses deserves a pay rise!

    The whole experience at the Shard was excellent. We had afternoon tea. The lift going up to the 32nd floor was fully automatic. You just walk in, no need to press buttons. One lift was on the 32nd the other would be at ground, as soon as one moves the other travels to be in it’s place ready for the next person. The entrance is very nice with soft lighting and efficient staff to guide you to your table. We were lucky to have a window table, with great views across London. The waiter was really nice. He asked if it was a celebration, it was for my 67th birthday and our 46 wedding anniversary. The sandwiches, scones , cakes and desserts were truly lovely. The chef had piped happy anniversary on one plate and happy birthday on another. These were nice touches. I booked online and received confirmation emails. I was not asked for payment and the time of booking and thought, I hope this works okay. Well the day before our tea was due I got a phone call checking we were still going for afternoon tea at the Oblix west the following day, I said yes and thanks for calling. I would recommend the Shard to anyone.

    I have dined at Oblix West before, however, yesterday's meal and service was so much better thanks to the staff exceeding my expectations in making my 83 year old Mum's experience so memorable. My husband and I opted for the Soft Shell Crab for Starters and Pork with Quince for our main, whilst Mum chose Caesar Salad and Salmon - all of which were simply delicious. Our desserts were equally good. The best thing was that without asking, the staff offered us a window table. We'll definitely return!

    We booked a table for lunch for my mother's 80th birthday and were really looked after by the manager and waiters from the minute we arrived. I am a problem diner as I have allergies and do not eat meat but they were very very helpful and accommodating and made my mother feel very special on her special day. The food was so flavoursome and all of us enjoyed every course we had. We were given a beautiful table right by the window at the far end which we loved. The views over London were magnificent we were so lucky it was a beautiful sunny day! Thank you all at Oblix for making a special day even better!
