A word from Roux at The Landau
The re-named Roux at The Landau sees father and son Albert and Michel Roux Jr working together for the first time in 18 years, bringing the Roux’s legendary culinary expertise and creativity to their second West End address.

Roux protégé Chris King has been chosen as Chef de Cuisine after a five year apprenticeship at Le Gavroche

Michel Roux Jr says of the new Chef: “Chris King is a rising star, and his menus reflect the Roux trademark style of classically-constructed French dishes, blended with today’s tastes for lighter choices.”

Some classic British dishes, which are customer favourites, will also feature on the menu.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was delicious; ambience lovely; I went with my best friend for my birthday and my expectations were surpassed on everything, food, ambience and lovely venue"
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "It's not every day that one's daughter graduates from King's College, London (OK, I know, but let me play the proud father for a little while at least), so this was the perfect opportunity to celebrate. It was a lovely evening and the food was good -- we went for the 'chef's menu', which is really a cut down tasting menu. It didn't quite match my expectations, however, for reasons that I can't quite put my finger on. The service was OK, though we had to ask for our wine glasses to be topped up -- the wine bucket was not by the table so we couldn't do this ourselves, which in any event should not be necessary at this level of dining. We also had to ask for the remainder of our white wine, which again should not have been necessary."
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "I had an early lunch. Ate the boudin noir and the rabbit leg. Both dishes were excellent - but the rabbit in particular was outstanding. Beautiful restaurant. The staff were very friendly and attentive but didn't smother me. The petit fours served with coffee were a perfect finish to the meal. I was very, very satisfied."
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "We had a really lovely meal I would definitely recommend"
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "We were celebrating my husbands birthday so wanted to go somewhere special. The Landau didnl't disappoint. The service, food and ambience was perfect and we honestly couldn't fault anything. They even brought up a surprise sweet treat for my husband which was lovely. Would highly recommend."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "It was Saturday, 5.30pm, we had the menu du jour with wine and I couldnt find a single fault with our experience. Welcoming, friendly, attentive service, food promptly served and delicious, great house wine the whole thing wonderful and great value too. The dining room was busy even then and certainly did not lack any character or ambience, which some previous reviewers mentioned. You would be crazy not to go here and see for yourself. We will definitely go back next time we are in London."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "The service was first class and a special effort had been made for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. We enjoyed our lunch very much and will return shortly."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "The whole experience was memorable for all the right reasons. My guests and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Staff are attentive without being overbearing. I will certainly come again."
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "First visit to Roux at The Landau. Impressed. Very spacious and elegant room. Food quality very good but not quite the heights of the very top tier (Ledbury, Hibiscus, Square etc). Attentive service, fair value (we didn't have the £35 set lunch so I think we would have said very good value if we had chosen that option). Will return soon."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "Highly recommend, food was so amazing! Definitely will come back here again!"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "What a treat it is to dine here! You will be pampered, spoiled and nearly pass out from the deliciousness of the food. You may even contemplate taking up a life of crime in order to fund what is sure to be a lifelong Roux addiction. It is no wonder that the gourmands of the day considered the Langham hotel as a second home - for the average person it's more like you've been allowed a hall pass into foodie heaven. It is well worth the money for such an experience, and if you go for one of the set meals you'll be amazed by how reasonable it is - especially considering the restaurant's location. I can't recommend the food or service highly enough - there is no pretentiousness or condescension here - you'll just feel happy, comfy and special!"
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "As ever, this restaurant's set lunch is great value and superb food. Well executed and well served by charming staff. Always a delight."
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "I booked this venue to celebrate with college friends our 60th birthdays this year - we promised ourselves something special and this certainly was, from the time we arrived to the time we left, the service and food was wonderful, the whole afternoon was very relaxing and we will always remember our 60th birthday celebration at Roux at The Landau."
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "The resturant was beautiful, staff were helpfull and friendly especially the wine sommelier and food was outstanding !!"
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Our expectations were high but our tasting menu dinner with a flight of wines last Friday was absolutely superb. The evening came to £279 and was worth every penny. We shall definitely return when we are next in London."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Great food, beautiful restaurant, good service, great experience !"
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "We went for our Wedding Anniversary & we weren't disappointed. Everyone was very attentive & friendly. The waiter who took our food and drink orders was polite & very helpful. We had a amazing table looking out of the bay window. We had the a la carte menu & ever dish was well presented, perfectly cooked and extremely tasty. I had a glass of Red from M Roux vineyard- wow it was so smooth, amazing taste and perfect with my meal. A lovely touch was they had piped Happy Anniversay on the slate of petit fois really thoughtful. One small critic was the table of men sat behind us & at the end of our meal, their language & volume which was fit for the gutters! Not the restaurants fault just a shame they thought it was right in this fabulous place."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Took my wife there for lunch on Friday 11/07. Although it was a fixed price lunch offer, all the little touches were there, and the the service was first-class. I would have expected nothing less from a Roux restaurant anyway, but how many times have we been let down previously at other establishments ? It was our wedding anniversary, but we had said nothing to the staff, but the delicious food and professional service made the whole thing very enjoyable. Many thanks and keep it up ! Alan Burns"
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Lovely venue, intimate but relaxed. Food and service to a high standard as you might expect from a Roux restaurant. Waiters could have smiled a bit more and portion sizes were small, but worth checking out."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Roux is always fabulous. The food excellent ambience wonderful. Truly a special dining experience."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Took the £45 lunch with wine and set menu. All very pleasant, but the choice of desserts did not show off any expertise of the chef. Ice cream, cheese, or isles flotant. Very small portion of veg main course, although very generous with the bread. The same menu was on offer last week when our friends ate there. Service good, polite and friendly. Seem to remember the restaurant being more inspired last year."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Excellent food and great service. Would definitely go back"
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "We went to celebrate my sister's birthday. The service was very attentive and just right. Food was excellent with very fine dining. I will definitely go back again"
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "From the personal welcome onward a relaxed & delicious lunchtime in a beautiful, elegant setting. Attentive but unobtrusive service. Food exquisitely executed & presented. I think we stayed for most of the afternoon!"
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "I came in for a solo lunch and enjoyed the menu du jour. The food was excellent -- wonderful ingredients and tasty, original preparations. Others around me had the tasting menu and wine pairings and this looked like quite a beautiful experience too. I opted for the cheese on dessert which was impressive good value on the prix fixe menu since you got to choose from the trolley selection-- usually there's quite a surcharge for that level of cheese service! Service is very good, perhaps a little stiff but still top notch. The room is beautiful too. The bill was about 45 for lunch, without any alcohol."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Wonderful food and lovely staff. Taster menue with wine a great experience."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "I went with my partner and we both had the chefs menu with wine pairing. The waiter described the food and wine to us in great detail for each course. They were always on hand if you needed then but they blended into the background otherwise making us feel attended to but not watched. All the food was without fault. Service was quick but not rushed. Overall we had an amazing time and would highly recommend this restaurant to others."
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "Food and recommended wine with each tasting could not be faulted.Portions could have been more (I'm greeddy !) because it was delicious and the pork should have had crackling since the skin was soft but still tasty."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "My husband & I enjoyed an excellent meal. Staff very nice through the evening & helpful with the choice of wine. Did not dissapoint. Would recommend."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "I visited Roux at the Landau for a birthday celebration with a friend. I had high expectations of this restaurant given the patron's name and everything stood up and exceeded those expectations. The service was perfect, unobtrusive, seamless and pre-emptive. The food was exceptional, classic dishes of the highest quality. The black cherry souffle was the best souffle I have ever tasted ! The somelier matched our wines perfectly too. I could not fault this restaurant in any way."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "This is my third time at the Roux and it has been excellent everytime. The staff and service is excellent and the food just exquisite. We did the set menu on Saturday night which we thought was good value and was delicious. Will definitely be returning soon I hope."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Our client could only describe it as wow and rated it as one of top 3 meals they have ever had."
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "We had the pre-theatre dinner/offer. Luckily our show did not start until 7.45 because it is takes a fair bit of time in a taxi to get from north of Oxford Circus to the Strand The dining room and service were exceptional. The food was also very very good but I felt the menu was a little unbalanced - with rabbit and trout as 2 of the 3 main options. We offer included a glass of champagne but in reality it was only half a glass - we know because we continued to drink champagne and the addittional glasses purchased were significantly larger which was good. We will certainly go again soon."
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "I've eaten here on a number of occasions and once again I can't fault the food or service. Spit roast quail - perfectly cooked... juicy and succulent.. Pork shoulder with ragout of chorizo & chick peas perfectly balanced... sweet, fatty piglet & spicy sausage. Dessert pistachio mousseline on sable biscuit light & delicious. Given the quality of the food and the cooking I consider it good value, though not cheap. The wine list extensive but I always manage to find a gem... Segla 2005, yes mark-up is high, but quality of the cellerage means you definitely won't be disappointed. Service attentive without being intrusive... shame dining room isn't busier which would lend something to the ambience...overall? Well I'm definitely going again."
    dined on 01/07/2014
  • "I booked the resturant for my sisters birthday, I have visited the resturant on several occasions . This was a first time visit for my sister and friend and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The set meal with wine and water is a great deal. The only minor negative was the dessert I am a really dessert fan and the pudding was quote stodgy and not very tasty. However that aside I would still return service great."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "We had a lovely meal at the Roux. We enjoyed most of the dishes but the cheese dish wasn't to our taste and when we expressed this we were offered an alternative dish. The staff were lovely. Very enjoyable evening."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "We booked a table to experience the tasting menu as a Birthday treat. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was really special with flavours and textures we had never tried before. We would go again to try different dishes in the future."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Having arrived early,we went to one of the hotels lovely bars.We were then escorted to the dining room by a number of very warm and helpful staff members. The menu is indeed 'fit for a king',with someone always at hand to help with wine choice ect. I started with the quail,had the pork for my main and the largest soufflè dessert i'd ever eaten.Washed down with a recommended medium white,this was one of the finest taste experiences i'd ever had,we can't wait to return and might even stay for breakfast next time. 10/10"
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "Yet another beautiful meal and faultless service . I can never fault Roux at the Landau , my favourite restaurant"
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "We ate here to celebrate my wife's Birthday. From the drinks in the bar, when we were given a free glass of champagne each, to the meal itself we had a wonderful and memorable experience. The food, service and ambience were all excellent. We have been before and will, no doubt, come back. Moreover, we will tell all our friends they must try the Roux at the Landau."
