Great access via the subway, no need to worry about parking. Great ambience and good variety on the menu, though the servings were a little small.

I followed tripadvisor comments and went to this restaurant for a birthday party. I’m not a real fan of restaurants located in commercial centers but once you pass the door, you immediately forget it. The design of the restaurant is very nice, modern style. We took 2 degustation menus (one season menu, one tradition menu). Both were absolutely excellent. This... More

While shopping I notice this modern restaurant located inside the mall. The ambient is modern, but not only in the interior design but also on their food. I was impressed by the perfectionism of the food presentation, every detail is taken in consideration; colors, ingredients and best cooking practice. The service is professional and they are able to explain the... More

This was my first visit. The restaurant is located somewhat incongruously in an unattractive shopping mall. The restaurant is elegant and organized around a tower of water bottles. There are a la carte options or a tasting menu. My main course was a delicious rack of lamb, perfectly cooked medium rare as requested. There's an extensive wine list, much of... More

Have visited this restaurant more than 5 times in the past year. Except for the location which is a bit odd specially for dinner,everything else is good. The food is superb, which reflects on the German chef who is extremely good. He presents very creatively every time different dishes and all taste good. The bread that they make themselves from...

it's just absolutely delicious not like anywhere else. Love to bring my friends and families there. My favorite menu is probably: cold pasta, Chilean Sebass, Wagyu beef, and the Apple tart. These are the menus that I have to order every time I go there lol.

Was here last for valentines day dinner, although I do eat there on many occasions. The decor is elegant, distinct, and graceful. Chef Mirko is a real talent and I am a big fan of his cuisine. From the outside in, a look at some of Water Library's dishes may look similar to other fine dining establishments around the world,... More

I am a regular at this restaurant and every time I go I am amazed by the quality of the food. Always beautifully crafted dishes, with amazing ingredients and amazing taste. Restaurant interior is beautiful and completely fits the quality of the food. Only comment I could make, it is in a shopping mall a bit hard to find.
