Roux at the Landau, Oxford Circus
Recently my family came to visit me in London and I wanted to take them somewhere special to eat. We love Masterchef as a family and really like Michel Roux, so I was thrilled when I found an offer for ‘Roux at the Landau’ offering a three course meal with champagne for only £30 per person. (Price may have increased since however!)
Roux at the Landau is the michelin star chef Michel Roux’s restaurant situated in the Landau Hotel, Portland Place, directly behind London’s Oxford Circus.
Toptable were offering three courses plus champagne, coffee and petits fours for only £30 per person as part of their pre theatre offer. This worked out great for us as I booked tickets to Phantom of the Opera in the West End situated a 10 minute walk from the Landau.
On arrival we were offered a drink at the bar and our coats were taken from us. We were then seated when our table was ready.
The actual restaurant is quite small, but very beautiful and there is plenty of space between tables making the atmosphere very romantic and personal. The decor is modern with a traditional twist, giving the place an exceptionally elegant feel.
The head waiter brought us the set Top Table menu and our champagne, bread for the table and water.
The menu, also a special set one, offers a good choice of starters, mains and desserts for even the fussiest eater. We all tried different things so we could sample all the options! I ordered the soup for starter and duck for mains, both were exquisite!
After dessert we were brought coffee and petit fours which were delicious, however time was running late considering we were heading to the theatre. The waiters brought everything quickly however and clearly were happy to accommodate people leaving for the theatre (especially as it was a pre theatre seating), we were just too busy chatting and enjoying the food and lost track of time!
All in all the evening was a great success, value for money was tremendous, location and atmosphere perfect and the food was heavenly!
We would 100% recommend Roux at the Landau as the perfect place for a special occasion, date or event! And if you get a Top Table offer, even better!
