Water library was a total surprise for me. I was not expecting a restaurant like this tucked in the middle of chamchuri square! Anyway, great lunch menu (890 baht for 2 courses, 990 for 3) with many options for all the starters, main courses and desserts. We went for the steak tartare, confit de canard and a lava cake with...

The place has a beautiful setting and decore. Service is attentive and very thoughtful. They even have a person who takes you all the way to the washrooms outside of the restaurant which is a nice touch. Unfortunately I did not find the food very appealing. I am not sure whether it is because I prefer food with a heavier... More

We had a dinner with friends at this restaurant again. All the dishes kept as high quality as before. I liked the Maine lobster the most and also the dessert.

Was excited to try this relatively new Bangkok restaurant which received some high ratings in various restaurant guides. But when we arrived I immediately noticed our servers were void of basic english comprehension skills. I had some questions about the menu which our host and server seemed unable to understand which I found frustrating. Overall, I found the Water Library... More

I went to Thailand last month for personal visiting and try to look for a good restaurant with warmly atmosphere and excellent food. A friend took me here to enjoy their set lunch, I like the lobster and Black & White chocolate, we really have a good time here. Next time I come to Thailand will must come back here.

An important conference of my company was hold in Thailand two weeks ago. My colleague brought me here to relax and gassip. I did not expect there will have a heavenly restaurant in Thailand. I liked Mushroom cream soup, beef and vanilla bean ice cream. It was a delightful meal for me and friend.

Very disappointing dinner. The best dish is the amuse bouche and the bread. The sauce of the tuna tartar is super overwhleming that I cannot taste the tuna. The scallop and caviar have good quality, but not really upgrading by matching them together. The lobster is soso. Dessert of the seasonal menu is bad. It didn't worth 3200 baht.
