There are few spots on the London landscape as striking as Searcys at The Gherkin, where HELIX restaurant has reopened to the public this September. 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 levels of one of London’s most iconic skyscrapers.
Perched high above the City, HELIX restaurant now occupies both level 39 and top level 40, offering epic 360° views to the public. The new all-day dining menu is led by seasonal and local produce. Highlights include Roast pumpkin velouté served with caraway toast, apple and almond; Miso cod loin with roast cauliflower, verjuice and grapes, and White chocolate cremeux, passion fruit, baked chocolate and mint (£28 for 2 courses and £35 for 3 courses).
The menu is accompanied by carefully selected champagne and wine list, and cocktails created by their own mixologist Alessio Aufiero. The restaurant is open Monday to Friday, from 12 pm with the last seating at 18.30.
New for 2020, is their daily Afternoon tea (from £35 per person).

We dined at the start of March and the food and service was faultless, it was just unfortunate that there had been a power cut so we was delayed over an hour before we could sit and eat therefore making it very rushed for us to finish before our booked train home, we ended up missing our train and had a little trouble getting booked on the next one as they was going to charge us nearly £100 to go on one slightly later luckily we managed to sort this just made the day a little less relaxing

We went for the 6 course tasting menu. The food was lovely, however the service was a real let down for such a restaurant. Staff didn't seem knowledgeable about the dishes. The tables/chairs look "cheap", and the toilets were in a sub standard condition. Paying top price for the privilege to "dine at the Gherkin", but that's really much it sadly.

The food, service and views all fantastic. The haddock and the starter artichoke soup were great. The dessert pear tart was also nice but as it was a big tart for two, it needed more ice cream as it got a bit dry towards the end.

Had a wonderful view of London on the 40th floor whilst eating Sunday brunch with my husband. The food was well presented & very tasty. The cocktails were lovely,service was fast,if not a little lacking in friendliness.Not once were we asked if everything wss ok with our meal but that being said we had a very nice afternoon.On requesting the bill there seemed to be confusion as we only received a bill for cocktails,when pointing this out to the staff they then pronted up a corrected bill but again it was only drinks....3rd time lucky we actually got the correct bill for brunch & drinks.Good job my husband & I are honest as no one seemed to understand we hadn't paid for our brunch,they seemed to be in a complete muddle when it came to settling up!!
