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.

    Friendly, helpful staff. Delicious pork, well presented dishes. Staff went out of their way to make my 93 year old mother feel special remembered her name, individualised her dessert.

    Me & my husband booked lunch as a surprise for our daughters 21st we were greeted by Emilia who took us to our table we asked if possible we could be moved by the window if one became available as we wanted it to be special for our daughter. Edgaras the assistant manager was very welcoming & attentive. A table became available & we were moved with beautiful views of London. Our waiter was Gabrielle who was very attentive, the food was absolutely amazing as well as the service. They personalised our daughters desert with a birthday message & a candle which was a lovely touch. Look forward to returning. Thank you Oblix for a wonderful afternoon x

    Food good. Wine card and wine service very good. 1 waiter put red wine into white wine glass with white wine in it, not so good.

    We have been a number of times and always enjoyed the experience. This was the first time we chose the 'lunch' menu. As to be expected there was a limited choice, however, the food was excellent and the portions were generous. Staff are particularly friendly and courteous. We always look forward to going back.

    We arrived half an hour early, and were able to enjoy a quiet drink in the Oblix East bar. When our table was ready, we were informed and taken into the West Restaurant. Unfortunately there was a technology problem and our food was delayed by about half an hour. The staff apologised, and when the food arrived, it was perfectly good. We did get the impression however that they were then trying to catch up by hurrying us between courses. The major problem was one of noise. Due to the hard surfaces of glass and tiles the high frequency sounds are magnified, and for people such as ourselves with hearing aids, the surrounding noise made it very difficult to hear ones partner.

    We booked lunch and had 3 courses as well as a glass of wine. The dishes were cooked and prepared perfectly and were very delicious. It's safe to say we would definitely recommend this restaurant. The staff was extremely friendly and very accomodating. As for the view, it's just unparalleled.

    We were very lucky to get a window table with the spectacular view offered by the Shard. The service was excellent, the food superb. And the offer that we booked was the best value for money ever. Have been recommending the Shard restaurants to everybody.

    Disappointed that the meal came with no veg and sides and that these were all extra as was bread & butter! 13.5% service charge is also a little steep! Food was good, view was ok. Very loud environment had to shout to make yourself heard!
