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. Oblix West also operates a no under 16s policy after 18:00.

    Excellent dining experience. The complimentary glass of bubbly before our meal was a lovely touch. Good food, good service and a lovely view despite the weather (not the restaurant's fault)......will be back without a doubt.

    LOVE the floor to ceiling windows so that if you're unlucky enough to not get a window seat you still get an amazing view of the London skyline. I went for dinner in the evening (10pm) and it was still busy surprisingly. The food was alright, I'm not quite sure it is in par with the price tag but then again it was on the 32nd floor in the shard! One thing I definitely don't agree with is the service charge! 13.5% if I remember correctly is quite steep for basic service but all in all it was a really good night.

    Had a family dinner with 2 kids (8 and 12 years old). Was a bit warried if kids like the food, but seems everyone really enjoyed the food, view and atmosphere.

    Overall it was an enjoyable afternoon. The reception was very warm and welcoming. We opted for the set lunch menu in the Oblix lounge. The service had a shaky start, as they brought the incorrect bottle of wine and forgot one of our food orders. However the food was lovely and the view was amazing. I would recommend the chilli squid, possibly the best I've had.

    Good views, good food but insensitive treatment - we were reminded several times in hurried tones that we could not have our table after 8pm. Once would have been fine - we were very well aware, and I confirmed this to the person I rang to tell we were running late. Despite being told this, we waited 15 min to order our desserts and about the same amount of time to get our bill, so we could have left even earlier if the staff's attentiveness had been better. Would certainly not recommend this restaurant for relaxed events.

    Well worth dining as the food was good but not exceptional. Staff pleasant but service a little slow. The overall dining experience was very good because of the excellent location and the views were amazing. I will definitely revisit but only because of the location.
