Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We called 4 times and no one answered the call, it was 20:00h and it was supposed to close at 23:00h, when we arrived there, the restaurant was empty, and the workers did not let us enter to eat because they were drinking inside

We visited Roux during our Lahti visit. Roux is clearly the best restaurant in Lahti and has kept its quality over the years. However, this year the food was exceptionnally good: aspargus was not that special, but the broccoli & broccoli sauce were heavenly good....The pike perch with mushroom gravy was 6/5. During some of our visits, there have been some dissapointments, but this year the food was so good to tell stories about it. Thank you, I am waiting for the next time to visit again.More

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Nice atmosphere in this former pharmacy. Tasty starter buffet and nicely presented main courses with explanations given when served. Cheese board rounded it all up. They prepared an own three course set for my daughter who's vegetarian, gluten- and lactose-free....Not cheap - but excellent food (with the service provided) hasn't to be cheap.More

We had a couple's lunch here in Saturday afternoon. Restaurant is quite big, three big rooms including bar, and was surprisingly full. Reservation is recommended. Interior was traditional brown shades and dark wood. Table placing was spacious which gave airy feeling and bit private conversation...space. Interior was echoing and fortunately there wasn't any background music, but just people talking which was nice also. Service was modest and quite minimal but friendly and kind. Perfect for Finnish style. Menu was simple and wine selection wide. We ate 3 course menus. First we got amuse buche which was warm pumpkin soup which was nice starter. All courses were almost superb, weakest was the my main course of duck's breast. Food was Finnish style and size was perfect for a bigger man also. Kitchen fed courses out steadily without long waiting times, until desert which was delayed bit. Overall we ate 2 hours. This visit was pleasant and there wasn't anything to complain which is rare. I was happy to pay bit pricey food. Service was also minimal but customer was noticed very well. I left happy and satisfied.More

Lovely, welcoming restaurant in quiet area just five minutes away from the main shopping area. Interesting and varied menu with a great deal of locally sourced food. Menu also in English and good variety of drinks. Food presented and served very well with good explanations...also of what the different parts were. We were particularly well looked after by a very good waitress with excellent English spoken. Reasonably expensive but very good value.More

We are foodies who have been to many of the world's top restaurants, and we were blown away by Roux. The service, food and ambiance were outstanding. The plating was as superb as at Olo, Helsinki'top restaurant. Only the wine list is abut thin, but...obviously there isn't that much demand for 95 point wines in Lahti. If you find yourself in Helsinki, trust me: it's worth the 100km drive to Lahti, just to experience Roux.More

I'm not a big fan of butter-and-cream-based French cuisine but Roux is worth a visit, though. The food is exciting, combining contrasting elements. Everything looks impeccable. Location is excellent with a short distance to both the travel center and local hotels.

We were celebrating a graduation in Roux. The waitress who welcomed us was very friendly and professional. We followed her proposal and had some sparkling drinks to start with. Prosecco was ok and I also have to mention the alcohol-free option; wine made with currant...leaves. It was sweet and full of flavor. We all chose set menus; three of us took the menu n:o 2 while one of us chose menu option 3. The menu 2 included beef tartar with egg yolk as a starter, perch with curry-mussel sauce as a main course and raspberry sorbet as dessert. In menu 3 there was king crab with potatoes, beef fillet with potato-blue cheese terrine and a chocolate trilogy. Food was excellent and tasty. Special mentions for the perch sauce - I would not have mixed curry and mussels with this Finnish national fish, but the result was delicious. Desserts were beautiful and tasted very nice. Some adjustment with the portion sizes would have been necessary: the size of the main course in menu 2 was smallish, while in menu 3 there were generously sized dishes all the way. As mentioned, the service was mostly very friendly and professional. A small wrinkle, however, was caused by a waiter who came into the picture in the end of the meal. His behaviour was quite awkward and even a bit intrusive. Overall, a nice dinner despite of the small details I mentioned. Still, this restaurant is definitely not cheap, so I think I can feel free to expect and demand faultless food and service.More
