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.

    Obviously the location is incredible and with floor to ceiling windows looking over central London, you probably won't find a better view locally. Oblix West is an amazing place with fantastic ambience and buzz about it and incredible service. We had a table close to a window, and after asking if there was anywhere we could take a photo at a window (it was my partners birthday), our hostess moved us to a window seat when one became available. Just that one mention of a birthday, and she made the effort to have her dessert decorated with a hand-drawn "happy Birthday" and a single candle, so she felt v special. The food is awesome and portions are large (we were in Pauly Saal in Berlin recently, and the food in Oblix West is better). We had crispy squid and flatbread to start and shared Roast Suckling Pig for mains. Afterwards we moved through to Oblix West for more champagne and chilled tunes with a live DJ set. Unforgettable experience and my partner is feeling very spoilt.

    It was my mothers Birthday and we had a wonderful evening with excellent food and of course an amazing view. We chose the tasting menue and a really good wine. The waiters were friendly and the service was really good. A little bit too noisy but nevertheless a perfect choice for a special evening.

    It was just ok

    From Start to Finish the experience is fantastic. You are treated like Royalty, attended to like the only guest and fed like a king. Our waiter was fantastic and the water and wine was never empty. Cocktails are great, food is perfect and the View is the cherry on top. If i had to make one negative comment, it would have to be the Ice Cream Sunday at £17. To me that was at least £11 too much. It tasted fantastic but no better than any other Ice Cream Brownie Sunday.

    Excellent food with an emphasis on sharing. The lamb cutlets are gorgeous!

    I booked a table for my mum's birthday and couldn't have asked for a better table, view, food, service and of course champagne! All staff were absolutely lovely and there for every need. My mum and I went for the taster menu and I honestly could not pick a dish as they all were amazing! Definitely will be coming back soon! Hopefully for my birthday!

    Terrific experience at Oblix West. Marvellous view of course with the sun setting over the city as we were seated next to the windows and so began a great evening. Quite unusual starters, the crabmeat and caviar was sumptuous. The steak main courses were cooked to perfection as was the halibut. The time for dessert course came too soon but the apple pie with filo pastry was great. Throughout the evening the service was excellent, friendly and very efficient. I wish I could suggest something to improve the experience but I honestly think everything has been extremely well considered with the result of a really memorable evening. Can't wait for the next visit.

    Great experience, we were seated at a window and the views were incredible. Great food and wine selection, with quick service Only drawback was their extremely strict time limit on tables- we were seated a few minutes after our reservation, but still hurried out after 2 hours
