Helix at the top of the Gerkin.

I have been up a few of the high rise restaurants in London but Helix at the Gerkin, with its domed glass roof that blends you into the sky, has to be the best view so far! Don’t forget your photo ID to get you into the building and you definitely need to book, but once you enter the lift and begin your ascent, the rest of the experience is fantastic. Up to the 34th floor to the cloakroom and then one more lift to the 39th. As the doors open the view engulfs you and with most tables situated alongside the windows there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Three courses and a glass of fizz for £40 is slightly dearer than our usual meal deal bargains but the food was amazing, especially the deconstructed cheesecake which was the nicest dessert I have ever tasted. There is also a bar up a short flight of stairs which you can book into if you don’t want to eat and this too gives the same spectacular view. All the staff are polite and friendly and the whole evening was a lovely experience. Helix definitely feels a little bit special so a highly recommended night out.
