Had the 5 course set meal - each course was fantastic. The wines are remarkably good too. One of us was vegetarian and even he had an excellent 5 course meal - very creative chef. Hats off to the...

The seafood was so fresh, we ordered Tuna Nicoise, Chillean Seabass,..all of them were so tasty, and the dessert was good either( we tried chocolate dessert and Apple tarte tatin). The staff...

I have been to the Water Library four times, and the food never fails to amaze me each time. The ingredients are the very best available, and they are very fresh. I've had the fish every time I visited, simply because the fish is *that good*! The croissant is freshly baked, and served with very nice garlic butter. Besides the... More

Tucked away in a mall, is a fine dining experience in peaceful surroundings. The food and service are both hard to match, even in Michelin starred restaurants. The set lunches and dinners are a true dining experience. The creativity of the chef and warmth of staff are truly a winning combination. The ala carte menu is extensive, and the wine... More

Food just on US42 and with wine, water and tax it came in a little under $80... worth every cent!! If you're into good wine, then this place has a real extensive wine... More

Tired of Thai, Thai, Thai ? ...then take a break and go to this top level Continental venue in a local mall.

Food creatively blended and presented. Romanian sparkling rose wine was a delightful surprise. The restaurant was full and busy, but still service very attentive.

After reading the reviews on here and considering the amazing food available in BKK I went with extremely high expectations. The food was lovely, we went for lunch and ran out of time for dinner where it might be a bit more leisurely but our starter came within 5 minutes of ordering it which felt a bit weird, we hadnt...

Had a great night, food was very well prepared and tasted good, wine selection was outstanding. They kept on bring out little plates of goodies between courses which was amasing.
