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.

    An excellent dining experience, all dishes (pressed chicken starter, beef main and granita dessert) were generously portioned, and beautifully presented. we added some triple cooked chips (stunning) and some beetroot. No additional unexpected charges. Happy to give me tap water . Coffee came with chocolates presented on a shortbread crumb. We had a window seat and although two new skyscrapers do obscure the view, it is more 360 when you go upstairs to the bar after dinner. This is excellent value for money and we spent 2hrs dining.

    Really great! The food, service and views were wonderful.
    A lovely experience for my friend who's birthday we were celebrating.
    We have dined in a lot of top London restaurants and this was up there with the best of them.

    It was my birthday and it was really special. Every member of staff was lovely and the food and service was amazing. We were never pressured into buying “extras” and offered tap water before “still or sparkling”. It made such a nice change compared to other restaurants! The view was fantastic and it was even better from the bar where we had an after dinner drink. Absolutely fabulous.

    Wonderful setting, attentive service and excellent food. We went for lunch but I would imagine dinner would be even more fascinating with night time views across London and beyond Overall, what more could you ask ?

    After we had got over the small problem that they had no record of our booking it was fine

    Spectacular location in the top of the Gherkin. Matched by the food which was excellent. The opening offer of 3 course lunch with glass of prosecco at £35 represented amazing value, given the quality of the cooking and the service.
