Whether you’re a native Londoner or visiting, London can seem a little daunting and taking-it-all-in from its bustling streets, rush hours and its vast offering of culinary experiences can be a little overwhelming. But now there is a place you can stop, take in the breathtaking skyline of this cultural hotspot and taste palate-pleasing creations.
Located Thirty-two floors up, Oblix West, London was one of the first few bars and restaurants to open up at The Shard back in 2013, Western Europe’s tallest building and we are lucky to experience its magic. This 200-seat restaurant offers a 180 view of London, with full-length glass windows to bask in the exceptional, which was the intention when being designed by Italian architect and designer Claudio Silvestrin, who equipped this eatery with its neutral palette of warm brown Turkish stone, dark wood and leather.
The Oblix West at the shard will set you back with mains running from £20-£50+ per dish with cover at approx. £90 per head including service. We find while it might be a touch expensive, what the Oblix West restaurant has got going for it, is what matters, Atmosphere, experience and contemporary fine dining, close to exceptional.
Owned by restaurateur Rainer Becker who for the first time moved away from Japanese cuisine says”I’d like Oblix to be a refined, urban dining space where people can relax and enjoy a variety of options from our menus throughout the day such as succulent and tasty rotisserie dishes alongside classics such as grilled Dover sole and lobster; beautiful market fresh salads and delicious, delicate afternoon tea treats. whether one enjoys the west side or the east side, the stunning views across this city definitely compliment the overall dining experience and I hope will encourage our guests to return time and time again!”
