Inside Oblix – Restaurant Above The Clouds

By Zahra Al-Kateb

There’s no ignoring the view from Oblix. Located 32-floors up the Shard with the Thames stretching out on both sides and the iconic cityscape painting the ultimate background to any dish, the setting is an easy hit.

But Executive Chef Fabien Beaufour and his team of chefs have worked hard to ensure the view does not outshine the cuisine.

WATCH: Our interview with Fabien Beaufour inside Oblix:

Created by renowned restaurateur Rainer Becker, the meticulous attention to detail, minimalist design and exceptional service at Oblix Restaurant is on par with sibling eateries Zuma and Roka, its style however is quite different.

Comprised of two restaurants – one with bar and live music, the second sophisticated and formal – Oblix presents North American cuisine and possesses a sleek Manhattan-esque ambiance.

A departure from the contemporary Japanese cuisine of the other restaurants in the Group, the eclectic menu at Oblix features dishes like the wagyu beef sirloin from the josper oven, lobster from the grill and french fries – naturally.

Becker has openly admitted he raised prices at Oblix to remove the restaurant from the tourist trail and rightly so. This is a place to be appreciated on an occasion where the sky is the limit.
