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.

    I have been to Roux at the Landau many times it was still good but not as good as the times before service was very slow but could have been because it was so busy however an establishment such as this should still have been top notch

    The ambience was very good; the service was excellent. However I was disappointed with the food; my starter (mackerel) was undercooked and the main was nice but not special. Given that it was a Roux establishment I expected more. I will not be recommending the restaurant based on my experience and I will not go there again.

    The food was alright, but perhaps didn't really meet our expectation especially since it's supposed to be a branch of Roux. We had 3 courses each, but did feel that even till the very last dish (dessert) we were not blown away by the quality of the food despite the presentation. They were alright, but definitely not mind-blowing. Though it should be said that the decor of the place is nice and the service was good.

    A beautiful dining room set in a grand hotel. The staff were very polite and attentive yet unobtrusive, the level of service was high. We opted for the three course set menu with a glass of champagne, which represented excellent value in terms of the quality of the food. The meal was delicious, especially the Risotto starter which was divine. There was a good choice presented across the set menu and cheese selection was impressive. All in all the perfect setting and choice for a special occasion and our anniversary lunch.

    It was my daughters birthday, which we mentioned in passing. The food was fabulous - The best lamb I have ever tasted. We had the chef's menu and the combinations were unusual - goats cheese on toast with chocolate and hazel nus? But everything was a gastronomic adventure. Then I had the Millie-Feuille for desert with Michel's own chocolate - absolutely stunning. At the end they had a slate of desert bites with Happy Birthday iced across the slate. The Chef even signed the menu and wished my daughter best wishes for her birthday. She will remember this meal for a long time to come.

    A lovely restaurant but the food was a disappointment, my wife's fish starter was overcooked and overall the food could have been hotter. Very nice but wouldn't return there are better places to visit.

    The food was absolutely incredible, so much so that I feel obligated to write my first review. My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary and the staff could not have been more attentative. From the private booth to the restaurant manager ensuring everything was ok, it was perfection. We had the squid and egg for starters. Both the highlight of our meal although the egg was out of this world! The lamb and pork for main was a reasonable portion and extremely tender followed by the parfait for dessert. They even gave us a complimentary dessert plate. I cannot wait for another reason to go back.

    Another excellent meal at the Landau. We had the set menu at £36 for three courses and a glass of very nice champagne. There were three choices per course and the service was superb professional but not overbearing . Looking forward to another visit soon.

    We were overall very disappointed with our lunchtime visit to the Landau, and really didn't think it came up to the Roux standard, and wouldn't go back. The Roux at Parliament Square was a memorable, special experience, with superb service, and wevwished we had gone there again.

    My 'special request' was any alternative to onion soup. The moment we walked in, the waitress confirmed the soup had been changed - Wow! My husband had the soup, buttered leak and sweetcorn served with beignets - light and crispy, I had the boudin blanc which was light and delicious. Followed by chicken and fish, excellent portions, with unusual accompaniments - red rice with the fish which was excellent. Deserts were a rich and creamy pannacotta with sweet plums and ice cream - three of the most perfect quenelles you have ever seen. Delicious coffee, petit fours to go as we had to hurry for the train. Not slow service, a miscalculation on our part. Just one 1/2 bottle of wine and water (driving later). We could fault nothing.

    This is the second time I have been to this restaurant. This time I took my husband to celebrate his sixtieth birthday, he was blown away. Attentive, knowledgable staff, beautiful food, gorgeous restaurant, it was just perfect. We had chosen the set menu with a glass of Albert Roux Champagne which is amazing value. The attention to every small detail is incredible. Although we are not from London, it was worth travelling over 200 miles for this special treat we will be back, A very memorable experience for all the right reasons. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough, five stars all the way!

    The Landau is an impressive venue for what we hoped would be an equally impressive meal. Whilst the meal was delicious, a few things did however let the overall experience down. There was a viscosity to the sauce only made possible by not cooking out thickening flour, the lamb was succulent, yet under-seasoned and the potato slightly boring. That said, the amuse-bouche was tasty as was the snails starter - which was notably unique and ingenious. We were dining on the set menu; some people may forgive a few things when dining on the 'cheap'. The peaks outweighed the troughs, so would definitely dine here again.

    We came here for our wedding anniversary and weren't disappointed. The tasting menu with corresponding wines is a delight and the service is professional yet very personal. We were given a cosy table in an alcove that ensured a private atmosphere but at the same time did not give us the feeling of being isolated or too far away from the main room and the waiters' attention. We would definitely recommend the place for a special evening.

    We can not recommend this restaurant highly enough. We booked for our son's 18th birthday celebration as he is a fan of Michel Roux. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left we were made to feel special. Having dined at other high end restaurant's in the past some being quite pretentious, Roux at the Landau couldn't be more different. The room is lovely, comfortable and the service is second to none. We each ordered something different and all enjoyed our choices and eachothers!! At the end of the meal our son was presented with a signed menu from Michel Roux, which topped off a truly wonderful and memorable evening. We will definitely return when we have another special occasion to celebrate!

    I spoke highly of my previous two visits to the restaurant but this time I was disappointed with the food. It was not up to the standard that I had experienced before. Although beautifully presented the fish courses, starter and main, were not as succulent or as tasty and I do not think quite as fresh. By comparison this meal was ordinary.

    Dining with my sister on her birthday, lunch was exceptional. Every detail had been thought about, concerning the set menu, and each course was delicious [we each made different choices, too]. However, it is the service in the Landau which we value most of all: professional, yet always friendly staff, who are discreet and attentive. All-in-all a super dining experience.

    The wife and I had the offer of 3 courses etc for £36.50. We swapped the champagne for red wine as per last time. (No problem). Each course was very well presented and the food lost a star as my wife's chicken was slightly colder than we would have anticipated. Love the environment, the unbelievable superb service and this remains my number one restaurant, although we do have some others to try in London soon (Only been to 2 of the top 10). Top tip at RATL, is have the cheese board for afters. Really superb choice and although small is enough to satisfy. Afterwards walked to Waterloo IMAX, another place that I cannot recommend to highly. All in all a great day out in London. Food, Regent St, Piccadilly circus, bridge over Thames and IMAX.

I do like the way the other dinners are carefully seated so as to give you room and freedom to move and converse. Outstanding food with interesting flavour combinations , cooked to perfection. A great experience at The Landau they don't seem to feel they need to prove anything - they just do what they do very well with minimal effort.
