SquareMeal Review of Roux at The Landau

Silver Award

Roux at the Landau, The Langham hotel’s more formal, food-orientated option than its Artesian bar and Wigmore pub, re-opened in summer 2018 following a refurb. David Collins Studio has done a subtle update on the high-ceilinged Edwardian room, adding Parma Violet-coloured leather chairs and pistachio green banquettes. A curving wall of windows in an elevated position above Langham Place remains the dining room’s biggest asset; there’s also now a central counter for solo dining, although without an open kitchen to eat around, it feels rather exposed.

Foodwise, the cooking has been simplified, although Roux luxury – Michel Jr oversees the menu – runs like a vein through the menu: XL Orkney scallop comes with oscietra caviar, braised turbot with native lobster ravioli. But there’s invention, too: seared foie gras is partnered by rabbit and pig’s trotters on toast, with pickled veg to cut through all the richness, while a Lake District lamb chop gets a North African accent with a dusting of ras en hanout. As at Michel’s Le Gavroche, there’s a good-value lunch menu (two/three courses £25/30), or a five-course tasting menu for £35, as well as à la carte.

It’s still a very hotel-feeling space, but that does make it a useful spot for breakfast and lunch meetings, while afternoon tea is served in the neighbouring Palm Court. And come the evening, it’s well placed for moving on to drinks at Artesian or The Wigmore.

Probably one of my favorite restaurants. The service and food was incredible, we had their pre-theatre menu which is an excellent price for what you get!

My husband took 2 clients for lunch for the first time to Roux at the Landau and was very impressed. Great service, fantastic food, extensive wine list and thoroughly enjoyed by both him and his clients- will be back!

This is my 5th or 6th meal at this restaurant and it never disappoints. We went for a small tasting menu (6 courses) and each one were delicious. Personally I'd have preferred just one desert rather than 3 (including cheese), but that is a preference issue and I really enjoyed the whole meal.
