Restaurant Review: Oblix Restaurant, The Shard, London SW1

I timed it. It takes 15 seconds for the raise at The Shard, London’s most well-known spire-like sculpture, to achieve the thirty second ground.

Doors open to a darkish wooden open area and a comfy entrance beckons to Oblix restaurant, a spot the place lunch comes with far-reaching views over London.

Ambience at Oblix

You stroll previous the kitchens watching tens of cooks doing their factor – fairly a sight. Eventually, you attain the darkish wooden partitions and cushioned tan chairs of the sun-washed restaurant courtesy of floor-to-ceiling home windows all through.

The vibe is most undoubtedly vibrant and jovial, and there’s a sense of one thing to have a good time within the air. We witnessed at the very least 5 birthday celebrations within the two hours we had been there.


Every Saturday and Sunday, Oblix West (the East is for afternoon tea) presents a brunch menu that mixes a mixture of up to date seasonal classics usually with an interesting twist.

There’s a three-tiered selection: Classic brunch for £69 per individual with the choice of including free-flowing champagne for a further £56 per individual or Limitless brunch for £125 per individual which incorporates traditional brunch paired with limitless champagne, wines, cocktails and tender drinks.

Not a lot of a drinker I opted for the Classic brunch and added only one glass of Prosecco.  I’m a foodie although and loved devouring a beneficiant brunch which consisted of starters, mains, and a whopping dessert.

Salmon and rice crackers

The starters trickled onto the desk and comprised a market bowl salad, a burrata with olives and Dotterini tomatoes, and a tuna tartare. And there was extra; the seared salmon got here with rice crackers, seaweed and horse radish, adopted by Carlingford lough oysters and a prawn cocktail served in a glass of gem lettuce and spicy cocktail sauce.

There had been a number of tantalising mains on supply starting from fish, pasta, meat and rooster. I used to be torn between the pepper steak and the black cod. The steak is served with a duck egg, fries, and truffle mayonnaise – so tempting, however I lastly opted for the black cod.

The cod was a wonderful selection, cooked on a cedar plank after which put underneath a grill earlier than it arrived in a pot full with the plank, nonetheless moist, with pickled onions and a touch of citrus flavours. Utterly scrumptious. I had the pleasure of the juicy half-rotisserie rooster served with lemon, rosemary, garlic and a aspect of essentially the most superb mashed potato. 

The dessert on the traditional menu is sensational. A creamy cheesecake, a block of chocolate with salted caramel, a few macaroons, and icecream. It was certainly all an excessive amount of, however fabulously so.

VERDICT: Fabulous meals with veritable views in a London landmark – what’s to not like? I’d suggest bringing a posse when you’ve got one thing to have a good time and going for the Limitless Brunch for limitless enjoyable.
