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.

    Very polite friendly staff who were really attentive. Asked if we were there for a special occasion- when I said it was my friends birthday when her dessert arrived it had a candle on with happy birthday written on the plate. Lovely touch. Food was very good and beautifully presented. Great atmosphere we had a really good time

    We had a fabulous lunch at Oblix. Service was exceptional and we were thrilled when we were invited to move to a window seat so we could enjoy the fabulous view. The food was a delight from starter to desert will definitely return

    The scones and the macaroon things in particular were incredibly delicious. The staff write Happy Anniversary on the plates for us without asking which was very sweet.

    Very enjoyable meal with very attentive staff. One small criticism is that we were asked if we were celebrating any particular occasion. We said yes, two birthdays. It would have been nice to have had a token gesture from them, as we have had in recent years! I wonder why they ask??

    We enjoyed a fantastic view from our window table. The food was amazing and the service excellent. We are looking forward to finding another reason to visit before too long!

    I thought the whole experience is really good. . When we arrived there on the day we were greeted very professionally but in a friendly manner as well. The service at the table was good, but could have been better. As soon as the restaurant got busy the service became not as good for example, no one was checking if we needed more drinks (we had to look for our waiter to see if he is busy) and I ordered one coffee with the pudding that was forgotten about. I just think for the prices charged the service should be excellent. Totally understand that we can't pre book a view table, but thought that there should at least have been somewhere that's kept free of tables where we could at least take a photo, but there wasn't - we had to stand close to the kitchen area to do that which was very busy at the time. I think that tables that don't have a view should be charges less as well. The food was delicious and we had a lovely time on the whole. Thanks.
