Description: Judged 'Best Steak Restaurant in London' by the customers of Bookatable, Europe's biggest online restaurant booking service, the 150-seat Heliot Steak House serves the best value American prime steak in the capital. It also has a unique view unlike any in London...diners can look out over the magnificent Grand Casino floor of The Hippodrome, the largest and most popular casino and entertainment venue in the country. PLEASE NOTE BECAUSE OF ITS CASINO LOCATION, HELIOT STEAK HOUSE ADMITS OVER 18s ONLY (IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO LOOK UNDER 25 YOU MUST BRING PHOTO ID). Heliot serves only USDA prime - the USDA marque a true indication of quality - aged 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 one of the eight sauces available. And if steak isn't your thing there is plenty more to feast on including And if steak isn't your thing there is plenty more to feast on including delicious fish, vegetarian and Arabic dishes. We highly recommend the legendary Millionaire's Mac & Cheese (topped with a poached duck egg and black truffle). There are six bars throughout The Hippodrome including the Piano Bar on the first floor overlooking the gaming tables. This serves as the social hub of the venue, with a drinks list offering everything from American beers to bespoke cocktails. While the Cranbourn Club 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. Also, check out the in-house offer of half price wines on Sunday. Over 18s only.

“Great steak!”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

My boyfriend and I couldn't decide where to eat before going to the theatre and came across this steakhouse. Everywhere was really busy due to the Wolf of Wall Street premiere but it was quiet here (about 6pm) and was a hidden gem. I had a fillet and it was amazing, one of the best steaks I've had in the UK! Service was quick and professional, and prices weren't extortionate. I would definitely return in the future.

“Great food, Good Service”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Took my father here in November for a 3 course set menu from 5pm.com and we enjoyed our meal.

Starters were nice but the steaks were cooked lovely. Didn't fancy our free cocktail but was able to swap for a glass of house wine instead.

Only minor let down was our next course was sitting next to us before we had finished out current course. Not a big deal but clearly they want you fed and down to the casino floor.

Would return, maybe for lunch next time.

“Excellent service, food and very good value.”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Found out about this restaurant on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. The restaurant is above the gaming tables so you can watch the gambling as you eat. We had a great waiter who couldn't do enough for us. I had prawn cocktail, followed by steak with home made fries, slaw and sweetcorn. The food was excellent but i couldn't finish it as there was far too much. Hubby had the sticky ribs and even he struggled to eat them. Service was attentive, the Singapore Slings were amazing (best I've had in a while) and the claret was good too. The most surprising thing was the price which was incredibly good value - around £12.00 for a steak and the prawn cocktail was £6.00 which for London was great. We did however lose what we saved on the black jack table! We shall return.

“Amazing steak!”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

We were going to go to a chain steakhouse in Leicester square however having read the reviews for the heliot then we booked here. It was 30th December and so London was chocker.
What a great place! It is within the hippodrome casino smack bang in Leicester square. The restaurant over looks the gambling tables so great to watch!
We had pate and prawn cocktail to start with which were both gorgeous. Generous portions too
We both ordered steak, I had the rib eye and my partner had the sirloin, we ordered fries,onion rings and salad as sides and it was ample! Best steak ever!!
With a bottle of wine, plus cocktail and a beer it came to £100
We will certainly be back as then tried our luck on roulette and won more than enough to cover the meal.

“Excellence in the capital at a reasonable price”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We visited on Boxing Day prior to going to a show
WOW........
The food and service were first class. The location quirky, but in no way detrimental to the experience
The starters Salmon & Crab / Carpaccio of Beef were fantastic. The steaks were sublime and cooked as requested.
We are regularly underwhelmed when visiting named restaurants.
Heliot has however restored our faith, as we received excellent food & service.
If you are in London this is a must.
