Fantastic eggs Benedict. Possibly the best in Bangkok. Coffee was a little off, not enough milk in the cappuccino and too strong.

I never thought I would spend 600 usd on a meal for two in Bangkok and rate it as exceptional value for money, but that's what just happened. The Water Library tasting menu is an experience and everything about it is great. It's a special occasion only thing, and u won't regret splashing out here. They have the best carrots I ever tasted. One variety were even purple!

This is my most favorite European restaurant for me in Bangkok for special event.

I enjoyed the Chef table here (only 10 seats) and I would recommend the full courses with wine pairing if you are looking for exceptional memorable meal in Bangkok. High quality and innovative food menu with probably the best wine list in Bangkok.

The risk here is that the Chef will change menu from time to time and you never know what you will run into! However, I've been dining here a few times and I am a regular diner to their main Water Library in Chamchuri square and they never disappoint me.

This restaurant is very expensive but you will get exceptional quality of good and wine pairing.

We made a booking for a table at the bar arriving 9:45-10pm. The venue was moderately busy, with a few places at the bar still free.

We tried the ferrero rocher cocktail, espresso martini, gummy bear cocktails, and their aged in barrel cocktail. Aside from the gummy bear cocktail, we found the others to be quite mild/lacking in flavour.

The service was fantastic, very attentive and helpful. It's also lovely to watch the barstaff prepare the cocktails - it almost seems like a magic show when they prepare the frozen cocktails. However as we were looking to enjoy a nice drink after dinner, I would go elsewhere.

The restaurant manager could not do enough to help us choose from the menu offerings and our choices all proved to be of the highest standard. Again, the wait staff were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable with a great customer service attitude.
