Setting

Despite its unusual address, Water Library charms diners with its imaginative European gastronomic flair. A romantic setting and excellent service add up to an exquisite dining experience.

Food

Begin with a signature starter of smooth home-made tofu accompanied by a cream of foie gras and truffle, shitake mushrooms, bonito flakes and leek. Also recommended is a refreshing platter of cold capellini pasta with a light yet flavourful sauce featuring wakame and thinly sliced Tasmanian abalone. The dish is completed with truffle oil and wakame-flavoured caviar. For an entree, try Water Library’s Bresse pigeon—juicy at medium, each bite goes beautifully with smoked eel sauce, boudin noir paste and pickled cucumber. A lighter alternative is Chilean sea bass perfectly pan-seared and served with a delicate mushroom-bacon ragout and ponzu truffle butter. For dessert, warm apple tarte tatin is well complemented by home-made vanilla ice cream. A more imaginative ending is passion fruit pudding with gianduja chocolate ice cream, caramel popcorn and fresh cherries.
