Roux at The Landau can be found located in the heart of London at The Langham. Albert and Michel Roux Jr have reunited to deliver this family run restaurant proposition, and we were very excited to experience it for ourselves, having heard exceptional things. The team are trained in classic French techniques and the restaurant menu boasts a variety of European dishes, each as mouth-watering as the next.

In keeping with The Langham, this restaurant is grand in style and offers impressive feature lighting which is certainly a sight to behold. Upon arrival we were impressed by the ambiance of the restaurant which is sophisticated, yet relaxed. We were greeted warmly by a member of the team and shown to our table.

To begin our evening, we enjoyed an aperitif in the form of two glasses of the Ruinart Rosé NV Champagne. Alongside our Champagne, we also thoroughly enjoyed four of their Carlinford Lough rock oysters served with a fresh wedge of lemon. The oysters were wonderfully fresh and delicious, and the crisp Champagne with red berry notes offered a superb pairing.

We browsed the menu and finally made our menu choices. To begin I decided on their crisp hen’s egg which was served with an aged parmesan foam, black truffle and smoked duck. This was a wonderful dish full of rich and decadent flavours that perfectly complemented each other. My partner went for the La Latteria’s burratina, which was served with beetroot tartare and shiso. Again, the flavours were outstanding with the creamy burratina being perfectly balanced by the earthy beetroot and shiso seasoning.

“Each element of each dish had been thought out to the minute detail and everything was faultless…”

For our main courses, my partner - after much deliberation, decided on the Buccleuch beef fillet was came served served with stuffed roscoff onion, Beaufort and sauce 'Bercy'. The beef fillet was perfectly cooked and the meat simply melted in the mouth. I decided to go with the roast suckling pig, which was served with choucroute caramelised apple and Mortreau sausage. This was another outstanding dish. The caramelised apple provided the perfect balance of sweetness against the meat, and each element of the dish was executed to perfection.

Alongside our meal, we also enjoyed a bottle of the 2015 Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone, France. This was a very drinkable, full bodied wine that really complimented our meal, especially our main courses. The velvety texture of this wine was well received; as was the dense fruit palate and the hint of spice.

Overall we were nothing short of impressed by Roux at The Landau. Each element of each dish had been thought out to the minute detail and everything was faultless from the food, to the drink selection and especially the service. Throughout the entire evening we were left wanting for nothing, which certainly didn’t go unnoticed. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fantastic meal in the centre of London. We will certainly be returning.
