There are few spots on the London landscape as striking as Searcys at The Gherkin, where HELIX restaurant and IRIS bar are open to the public for the first time. A proud celebration of British produce in one of London’s finest landmarks, the menus put seasonal and local produce centre stage, all while enjoying panoramic views from the top 3 levels of one of London’s most iconic skyscrapers.

The HELIX restaurant menu is led by seasonal and local produce. Highlights include Dorset crab with grapefruit, soy and sesame, and Rhug Estate Welsh lamb with bell peppers, aubergine, courgette, pepper and pine nuts.

Perched above Helix on level 40 is Iris bar, offering 360° views an extensive cocktail menu as unique as the setting. As well as cocktails which pay homage to the city below, an exquisite selection of champagne and English sparkling wine is also served.

One of London ’s most desirable dining experiences, Helix restaurant in The Gherkin is found 5 minutes’ walk from Aldgate Tube Station.

    Beautiful setting and views. Service was very good indeed, thank you. Food was good, but not great. I wouldn’t rush back

    Absolutely fantastic brunch on Sunday at the helix and drinks afterwards upstairs in the bar. Sophisticated but relaxed atmosphere, food lovely and the view on a sunny crisp winters afternoon was fantastic. My son was v impressed and it made his birthday very special. Would recommend the helix to everyone.

    This was our first time to Helix Restaurant at The Gherkin and what a fantastic experience!! We had a window seat and the views were fabulous. The food (and wine) were excellent with attentive but unobtrusive service. All in our party thought that it was value for money and we all cant wait to go back.

    Having worked on the construction of the Gherkin it was a great pleasure to be able to visit the top of the building and have brunch there
    An extremely pleasant and satisfying experience dining in the Helix restaurant and finishing our drinks in the bar on floor 40 capped the day perfectly

    The view was great and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and arrived very quickly.

    When we booked the restaurant says it has a very strict dress code which we stuck to but it doesn’t seem to actually be enforced judging by the attire of the other diners. Would have been nice to know before we spent ages worrying about what to wear!

    Poor restaurant environment in contrast with the breathtaking view

    On arrival we were left to wonder around to ask where to have a pre-meal drink in the bar.
    We then had to ask if our table was ready. We had requested a window table which we received but it was in the corner by the kitchen door and the till.
    Its not a bad business restaurant but would not go for a special occasion.
    The food was not very hot but was tasty.
