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 amazing and the service impeccable. I cannot praise this restaurant enough."
    dined on 29/08/2014
  • "We had the chef menu including wine , the food was delicious and beautifully presented as you would expect from a roux restaurant. The Somellier was informative and pleasant and the whole evening was perfectly enjoyable .. Would definitely return."
    dined on 29/08/2014
  • "Excellent food and service as always. Had the special menu with a glass of champagne and we were spoilt for choice. The cheese board was very good indeed!"
    dined on 29/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 28/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 28/08/2014
  • "We always enjoy the whole occasion of dining at Roux at the Landau and being joined by our son on this visit was made special by dining in the side booth. Superb food,ambience and service all work together."
    dined on 28/08/2014
  • "Fantastic service and wonderful food. The staff were friendly and attentive throughout the evening adding to the overall dining experience."
    dined on 27/08/2014
  • "The ambience was outstanding. The food and staff was excellent. We were made to feel at home for both occasions. Lunch on the Wednesday and afternoon tea on the Thursday."
    dined on 27/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 27/08/2014
  • "Had a lovely experience for my sisters birthday!, fab food great service, nothing was too much trouble recommend for foodies, def would go back matredee fantastic!"
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "We came to London for the day to celebrate our anniversary and visit some of the sites and the visit to Roux at the Landau finished it off in style, the food was fantastic and the service excellent . The day was special and the restaurant and its ambiance gave us a something special to remember"
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "We ate at 6pm with the fixed price menu. Couldn't fault it. We were lucky enough to have a couple of other meals in highly rated London restaurants this weekend but this was easily the best in terms of the food and the experience."
    dined on 22/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 22/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 22/08/2014
  • "Everything was great, service, decor, food. We went for our 5 years wedding anniversary and at the end of me meal they gave us a special platter with petit fours to congratulate us! Would return any day"

    dined on 21/08/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful food, relaxed atmosphere and professional service. 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."
    dined on 21/08/2014
  • "would definitely return the chefs menu is perfect to experiment the days dishes and contracting wines... desert wines especially nice"

    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "I booked this through Top Table and was glad i did. It was my partner's birthday and I wanted to go sommewhere special. The staff from the outset were very attentive and friendly. We enjoyed all three courses and the champagne and wine, The cheese board was the best I've ever seen in a restaurant. The board on which the chocolates came had happy birthday written in white chocolate. A nice tiuch to finish our evening."
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "Having enjoyed a magnificent celebratory lunch here previously with the family after an honours event at the Palace, this was the obvious venue to celebrate my "big birthday" with my wife . The set lunch with wine was absolutely spot on, good choice, tasty and very well presented, with excellent well timed service from Franco and his very supportive team, and commendable attention to detail. Most enjoyable and highly recommended."
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "I had great expectations before going to the restaurant and first impressions were good: nice entrance, lovely room and good decorations. The menu was also describing very tempting meals. But although food was well presented in the plates, the taste was just good, not excellent and not matching the price paid."
    dined on 19/08/2014
  • "The Open Table deal was excellent value including champagne. Really fine quality dining in a splendid atmosphere with good quality wines by the glass. Attentive waiters but not over the top. A great experience which we'll repeat."
    dined on 19/08/2014
  • "Myself and my partner went to the the landau for my partners birthday. We had the set summer menu and was certainly not disappointed. The food was delicious, staff attentive and the wine was beautiful. Drinks we're a little pricey (we want for one of the cheaper bottles but was still £45.)"
    dined on 18/08/2014
  • "I took my wife here as part of a weekend trip to London for our first wedding anniversary. We picked this restaurant and it was a fantastic choice. The food was outstanding, outshone only slightly by the amazing service. Not being very knowledgable on wine, I asked the smellier to select wine pairings for the courses we had selected, and the enthusiasm and option picked exceeded what we expected. Each glass elevated the courses to again make this meal extremely special. At the end of the evening my wife and I had enjoyed probably the finest dining experience we have ever been lucky to have. I would not be surprised if this restaurant picks up a Star soon."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "Fantastically delicious , generous portions and attention to taste was incredible."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "Went for dinner on a saturday evening, asked for a table near the window and that was what was delivered! The waiters are attentative and leave you alone without coming up to you whilst you are mid convo or eating. They top up your glass regularly and fold your napkin should you leave the table for any matter. Would definately come here more so for a special occassion as a regular haunt you could get too used to the atmosphere"
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "Booked as a surprise for our Anervesary my husband was so impressed and we has a great time. We will certainly be back with friends and family."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "Lovely setting, service and staff excellent and helpful including hotel staff, food delish as expected."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "First time at the restaurant. Upon entering we were greeted as you would expect and I had high expectations especially with the Roux name. The food was nice - would highly recommend the beef. One of the waiters named Mauro certainly made the experience worthwhile. However it was spoilt by a waiter who knocked into my chair with no apology and the fact that we were placed next to one of the workstations where the waiters congregated creating unnecessary noise thus ruining the evening's ambience"
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "The open table lunch option with a glass of champagne was perfect to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were surprised that the opentable menu was different to the standard lunch menu, but it was very acceptable. The best course was the lemon meringue parfait which was just delightful. If there was a weak point it was the petits fours which could have had a greater variety."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "We have dined at many restaurants of this caliber and this is my favorite restaurant in London. It is unpretentious in all aspects whether it be the food, the service or the atmosphere. They have a great wine list and prices are so reasonable. Last week we had the tasting menu. The portions were really big for a six course tasting menu, almost the size of a la carte portions in many other restaurants. The day before we had our reservation, I asked for the tasting menu to be personalized for my husband, who isn't a big fan of sea food and as we both don't eat beef. I was emailed a menu that the head chef had suggested to check it was to our satisfaction, which it was. All in all, another wonderful experience."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "A most enjoyable experience, with excellent food and wine served in delightful surroundings. The quality of service was exceptional, being both highly skilled and charming, yet totally unpretentious. We were made most welcome and will certainly return."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "I booked a table for my partner's 30th birthday from opentable. We have got a very nice dinner deal of £36 per person for three course meal. Outstanding service provided by very attentive and courteous staff. Delicious food with brilliant presentation. Splendid interior decor gives out very elegant and yet friendly and romantic atmosphere. Highly recommended particularly for special events The food on the menu are very expensive if you do not have a deal. I am unlikely to go to the restaurant if it's not for a special occasion."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "The occasion could be summed up in one word,excellent !!!We could not fault a thing.the atmosphere,the food,the service.I have been a number of times and it will always be top of my list to go again."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "lovely meal at the Roux..... great cheese trolley and made my friend feel special for her birthday celebrations. Great cocktails pre meal. Could not fault anything."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "It was a very special day for me and my partner, we went there to celebrate my partner birthday, also we found out we are having a baby boy on the same day. From the moment that we walked in, service was friendly and professional, attentive service without being in your face. Loved the tender beef and the Syrah, also the cheese trolley was just top class. I've been telling all my friends how great it was and I am definitely going back. Well done !"
