    We had a lunch to celebrate a birthday. Our table was close to the window (as are most tables) and we therefore had stunning views over London. We dined from the lunch set menu. The food was generally good (not brilliant). We both had the smoked salmon to start with: that was very tasty. My wife chose the cod as her main course and it was swimming in juice (not at all like the photo on the restaurant's website). The restaurant substituted that with the chicken breast without quibbling which was much tastier. We both had pear/ricotta dessert with was good. Our side orders of: artisan bread (with our starters), triple cooked chips and honey-roasted parsnips/heirloom carrots (with our main courses) were all excellent. The service was excellent throughout: attentive without be suffocating. We ended the meal by having a glass of wine in the bar upstairs: the views were even better (the bar is above the restaurant and has 360o views). If you enjoy meals with a view, I can thoroughly recommend Helix at The Gherkin: do finish your meal by going upstairs to the bar!!

    Staff really pleasant. We were not hurried at all allowing a good catch up with our friends. Views amazing although inclement weather. Lovely combinations of taste on each plate and beautifully seasoned.

    We dined on the star deal, amazing value, food was beautiful, staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Loved that you can retire to the bar upstairs after your meal. Views are fantastic. We will definitely dine here again.
