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
  • "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 have eaten at Roux many times and it never fails to deliver for excellent food, great ambience, good service and value (we had the early fixed price menu)"
    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
  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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 !"
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "The staff were attentive and friendly, doing all the right things. We were given a window table and told that we were entitled to a glass of champagne (in our experience elsewhere, we have sometimes had to ask for these kinds of things). This level of service continued. The food, on the other hand was only OK. The desserts were outstanding (lemon meringue parfait) as were the amuse bouches, but the rest of the food was well executed, well presented but no 'wow' in the mouth. We had the £36.50 menu of 3 courses and the glass of champagne. We had a glass of rose each and the total bill was just over £100 (including the 'discretionary' 12.5%). Interestingly there was space for a gratuity on the bill (not unusual, but why do it?)"
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "Roux at the Landau was busy on Saturday evening, the dining room packs in quite a lot people but with clever partitions between tables it doesn't feel too constricted. I had squid followed by lamb, my husband had prawns followed by beef. All was inventive without being too daring and as would be expected of a Roux restaurant, cooked to perfection. The wine list is varied and covers a range of prices. The sparkling water was £5 per bottle, which seemed scandalous, but other than that was a great meal."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Visited for my husband's birthday celebration last Saturday for an early dinner. We had a great experience, would thoroughly recommend it. The service was excellent and there are lovely extra touches like canapes, warm bread roll baskets and coffee and delicious petit fours included. We chose the set three course menu for £50 pp including service charge and half a bottle of good quality wine! This offer is only available at certain times so you need to check the restaurant website for details. The restaurant has a classy atmosphere which makes it ideal for celebrating a romantic or special occasion. Looking forward to another visit."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "We had a really enjoyable evening with fantastic food and service. Our 2 kids 12 and 11 loved it too."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Celebrating our wedding anniversary the food was brilliant together with the service. The only issue - I was short changed. Having mentioned the discrepancy it was immediately rectified but it left a sour taste in my mouth.........what a shame!"
    dined on 06/08/2014
  • "Lovely ambience, excellent, very fine tasting food, not too little and not too much. This restaurant cannot fail to please."
    dined on 05/08/2014
  • "Special occasion; beautifully presented food, attentive but not fussy service. Excellent combinations of flavours and a wonderful taste experience. Chocolate Mille feuille almost too big ! Black cherry soufflé superb. Will return."
    dined on 05/08/2014
  • "we booked for Monday lunch .food and service was top class.we liked the decor and colors.Staff was very professional and food was very well presented."
    dined on 04/08/2014
  • "If you get the chance don't hesitate to visit Roux at The Landau. The food is wonderful, the service is impeccable and the wines superb. What more can be said."
    dined on 04/08/2014
  • "The food, wine and service were all excellent. We enjoyed the meal immensely and between the three of us worked our way through most of the menu on offer. Wishing to have a 'Roux' experience we were not disappointed."
    dined on 04/08/2014
  • "Had a wonderful lunch at Roux at The Landau with good service and a lovely dining room. I would highly recommend the fantastic white onion soup with chorizo Madeleines."
    dined on 04/08/2014
  • "Overall we had a good meal to celebrate our anniversary. However, we waited for 20 minutes for our order to be taken. The tables are very close together and we both feel the puddings were not that great...very average!"
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "We booked Roux at The Landau as a double birthday celebration - with especially in mind the fact that both our guests were "foodies". From the moment we arrived and were shown to our booth for the evening the tone was set. The service and tailoring of the service that we received was second to none. The quality of food was perhaps as we might have hoped for but again we weren't left disappointed - we all 4 tried different dishes and all were exceptional in taste, quality and presentation. All in all for someone who is looking for something special in surrounding that were special but still "relaxed" this did not disappoint at any level."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "I was expecting great but it was only OK. There were no potatoes or vegetables even as side orders. I ordered the beef but as I don't like tomatoes I had a big piece of beef with nothing to go with it. As a Michel Roux fan my expectations were very high. Saying that I can not fault the service or the surroundings."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "I booked this hoping for a memorable dining experience for my wife's birthday and The Landau certainly met that criteria . From the hors d'oeuvre to the complementary sweets after the meal it was totally faultless"
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "We went here for a Birthday Dinner. The food was amazing. Very unusual dishes, beautifully presented and the service was excellent although very slow. We chose the pre-theatre menu and arrived early before the restaurant opened. We had three courses with Chablis wine and coffee and petite fours. All were lovely but it was rushed towards the end and we had to chase them up and only just got to the theatre on time. Allow a good 2 hours to eat here."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "We had diner at Roux at the Landau a couple of days ago. Overall it was an enjoyable experience. We took the A la carte menu as the dishes on the 3 courses offer menu looked less attractive to us. The food is certainly very nice though it does not blow you way. What we particularly enjoyed is the service which was both very professional and very friendly. It helped making the evening more laid back and relaxed as the setting would otherwise make it be a bit formal. Special mention to the Sommelier who knows his stuff and sells it well."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Wonderful restaurant with incredible food. Elegant but relaxed atmosphere. I had the Dover Sole which was the best fish dish I have ever had! Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Will definitely be going back!"
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "We opted for the £45 inclusive special- best value as the accompanying wines are around £40 bottle. Service was friendly and efficient throughout and staff stopped to chat and seemed genuinely interested. They'd remembered it was our wedding anniversary and provided us with a special plate of petit fours to go with coffee. My lamb was cooked to perfection but my wife thought the plaice was bland and could have done with more seasoning. Lovely ambiance would certainly recommend for that special occasion."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Service leaves a little to be desired, waited 15 minutes for a wine list for example, but the food was absolutely brilliant and for £35 per person, definitely not to be sniffed at"
    dined on 29/07/2014
  • "This was a birthday dinner for my companion. The food was very good and the service excellent. I started with a delicious cauliflower soup, followed by lamb and a stunning pannacotta. The set menu was good value, though we didn't order wine or mineral water. At my companion's request, the restaurant was happy to replace the plaice on the set menu with trout, Note that, unusually, the set menu changes every week so that what you see online when booking is unlikely to be what you are offered on the night. We'd be very happy to go again."
    dined on 28/07/2014
  • "My 3rd visit confirms 'The Roux' as in my top best restaurants. The 3 courses, champagne, coffee and petit fours for £36.50 each was superb. My wife and I swapped the champagne for red wine (no problem) and had no extras. Total cost £81 for a superb leisurely lunch, 2 minutes from Oxford Circus. I had mackerel starter and lamb main from a good menu selection. (Odette's take note). Both were exquisitely presented, not miniscule portions, the right temperature and delicious. My wife's food was equally as good. An Amuse-Bouche also appeared. All in all a fantastic celebratory meal. Tip:- Have the cheese 'trolley' for afters. Really superb cheeses kept well and beautifully presented. A real pleasure to see and enjoy. We will be back."
