Roux at the Landau sees Albert Roux and Michel Roux Jr, the renowned father and son in the culinary world work together for the first time in 19 years. Knowing the magnificent Roux family, they pride themselves of perfection in every aspect. The kitchen and front of house are both equally important. It is of no surprise they chose the best to represent them. Chris King has been chosen to be the restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine. He is a Roux protégé who has worked for over 5 years at their 2 Michelin starred Le Gavroche. Even Franco Becci, the Restaurant Manager has been carefully picked to ascertain an excellent dining experience.

The impressive entrance to Roux at the Landau

As I entered through the door, I was greeted with an insane collection of wine through the glass cabinets.

Braised featherblade beef

The glasses were printed with a horses which I find cute. The restaurant has horse themed decoration to remember historical memories of it accomodating stagecoach horses. 

Artisan cheeses

Lemon meringue parfait with early English blackberries was my favourite of the night. It is similar to Baked Alaska, one of my favourite dessert.

 Petit fours were tasty except the less impressive brownies.

With The Rouxs seeking for perfection, it is of no surprise that while we were there, service was immaculate and attentive yet not intrusive. We ordered their promotional 3 courses menu for £35, which was of a good deal. The dishes were well executed with elegant taste. Though the food was made well and ingredients carefully picked. I must say, some were great and some did not live up to a Roux standard we were expecting. But with this promotional price, it is actually of very good value. 


A very good value quality food, ambience and excellent service. 


Some of the tastes did not live up to the Roux standard but it is just a very high expectation that we have set since it carries the Roux name. On a general point of view, food was well executed. 
Note: Don't get me wrong here, the food and experience was great. It is just that I have crazy expectations from one of my favourite chef, Michel Roux Jr.

Will I return?

Yes of course. Perhaps a la carte next time. It is possibly more impressive.
