Open to the public daily for the first time, Helix restaurant on level 39 of The Gherkin offers sky-high contemporary dining at both lunch and dinner. With majestic views across the city, Helix derives its name from the shape of The Gherkin, an iconic landmark across the city.

From executive chef Daniel Loftin, the Helix restaurant menu is led by seasonal and local produce. Highlights include English green asparagus with Dorset crab, 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.

    Enjoyed the evening but portions too small. My husband left hungry! Very expensive for what we had. But views great. Shame there was no view from the bathroom.

    A stunning setting with excellent service and a delicious menu to choose from. The duck and lamb were quality pieces of meat and the desserts were heavenly. The only negative here was the price but the whole experience was worth every penny.

    Food was honestly horrible. Worst fine dining experience I have had in London.

    Very disappointed with Searcys, we had the set menu @ £40, but chips & veg were £10 extra, I wasn't asked how I'd like my beef but it was served quite rare & it was really tough, chewy & fatty - very disappointing. Ordered cheese instead of dessert & was only given one small piece of cheese, staff were unattentive & didn't say goodbye when we left, as they were busy chatting, wasn't clear who was in charge, we ordered drinks & cocktails, so spent a lot, but really disappointed with food & service - wish I hadn't paid the service charge that was automatically added to my bill.
