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.

    We were a bit early arriving so decided to go up to the bar. We were greeted pleasantly but unfortunately the service to order a drink was a little slow considering there were not that many people at the bar. We went down to the restaurant and were welcomed and seated by the window. We were greatly served and a pleasant surprise when the waiter presented me with a piece of cake with Happy Birthday greeting on the plate!! Thank you Helix and staff. We all enjoyed our meal and the bottle of champagne. Would come back again!!

    Everything was very nice, pleasant atmosphere, food was very tasty and service efficient however I mentioned on the time of booking that I will celebrate my birthday and at the end I ordered desserts and the plate come as normal,no message-so I have to ask myself the waitress if she could organise a birthday plate. I guess this details are important to be followed because it makes a difference when you choose a place as yours to celebrate an important event.
    Kind regards,

    We had an early reservation and got a table next to the window. Even though it was cloudy and bit grey the view was still amazing both outside and of the dome of the building. The dining area isn't quite at the top of the Gherkin, it's half of the floor below and if you're sat near the back then it's a bit limited in term of what you can see past the other tables and diners.

    Although the menu is limited when using one of the £40 offers the choices were sufficient and the food was a good standard and well presented. The downside was that the whole experience was quite rushed. I've never been to a restaurant like this and got through 3 courses in 45 minutes! As soon as we'd finished desert we were 'encouraged' to go upstairs, even though my dining partner hadn't finished her drink. The cocktails upstairs are a bit unusual (they do beers and spirits too) but service is slow and a bit haphazard - staff wondering around offering drinks to random people before being flagged down. They did get our order wrong but to be fair they offered free bar snacks (not really necessary after a meal) then waived the bill for the cocktails.
