Restaurant description

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).

One of London ’s most desirable dining experiences, Helix restaurant in The Gherkin is found 5 minutes’ walk from Aldgate Tube Station.

    I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the Helix. It had just turned dark outside and the city lights were on so the view was great. While I really liked my soup starter and haddock mains, I loved the rhubarb fool dessert. It was a great birthday treat out and I'd readily go again.

    Nice table with great view. Courteous staff.

    The restaurant menu is quite limited. I didn’t particularly enjoy the food, the starter was average and the main (steak) was devoid of flavour. The desert was excellent. The service was hit and miss. One person being very good, the other being very poor. Drinks were missed, then when chased up arrived flat. On the whole not impressed for the expensive cost, other nearby venues with the same view are where I’d recommend.
