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.

    The place looks amazing particularly the bar, the service is very good., attentive without being intrusive. We had an excellent meal and I can only recommend the place highly and will visit it again for special occasions or entertaining friends or relatives.

    Chairs really really uncomfortable

    Ambience and decor was nice. Customer service and attentiveness isn’t up to standard. Arrived early for dinner so was showed to the bar, however had to remind staff to let us know when the table is going to be ready. Once got to the restaurant, the waiter pretty much rushed out order and abruptly took our order, understand that our meal must of been the last order as we booked this for 9:30pm. Wasn’t much food selection and meal was pretty bland. But overall was truly unimpressed with the service from the place!

    We had a beautiful evening, drinks first in the bar though they seemed a little disorganised giving the wrong drinks to people. Really enjoyed the restaurant the staff were very attentive and didn't rush us. It was a birthday treat and the little touch at the end of the evening, Happy Birthday pudding, was very much appreciated. Overlooking London was amazing.

    Amazing view, great service. The food was very disappointing. I paid a premium for the view....definitely NOT for the food. I will recommend to friends because of the lovely location but manage their expectations about the food.

    Excellent food and service

    We had booked the fixed price lunch deal and all the food was excellent, especially the whipped goats cheese and pickled carrots starter. Good bread and butter and plenty of it. What can you say about the view? - you are at the top of the 'Gherkin' building therefore the views of London are brilliant.
