For a surprisingly high quality steak at a very good price, check out this glitzily glam’ grill – in the circle of the original theatre – which nowadays has a birds-eye view over the gambling tables of the UK’s biggest casino (right over Leicester Square tube). Top Tip – great 2-course, pre-theatre deal at £14.95.

The UK’s biggest casino – the current occupant of the famous London landmark above Leicester Square tube – boasts a little-known but glam’, surprisingly accomplished and reasonably-priced steak house, overlooking the gambling below, from what was the circle of the original theatre. (No entry charge, nor need to wager). Top Tip – great value pre-theatre.

Have you eaten at Heliot Steak House?

Owner's description

Judged the Best Steak Restaurant in London by the customers of Bookatable, Europe’s biggest online restaurant booking service, the 150-seat Heliot Steak House has some of the best views of any restaurant in London, overlooking the main casino gaming floor at The Hippodrome.

Heliot Steak House boasts great value USDA prime steaks, aged for between 4 and 6 weeks to develop tenderness and flavour. You can choose from a selection of toppings, including roast bone marrow, truffle and lobster tail, or keep it simple with a choice of eight sauces.

If steak isn’t your thing there is plenty more to feast on with a menu created by award winning chef Barry Vera, including house made gnocchi with gorgonzola, parma ham & pine nuts, whole grilled sea bream with samphire & beurre blanc, and the halloumi burger with roast field mushrooms and red pepper relish. Not forgetting the ultimate in decadent side dishes, Heliot’s legendary Millionaire’s Mac & Cheese (topped with a poached duck egg and black truffle).

There are six bars throughout The Hippodrome, including Heliot Cocktail Bar, which is the central hub of the casino with a drinks list offering everything from American beers to unique cocktails. The Cranbourn Bar, sited on the third floor adjacent to the two-tier Smoking Terrace, is the West End’s busiest and most popular late night venue.

Over 18s only. If you are lucky enough to look under 25 you must bring photo ID.
