Dine and dance on the grounds of a great museum.

I've enjoyed a number of expat dance parties in this venue. It's attractive, light and bright. The dinning service I have had isn't so great. I found our servers to be a little impolite, not super organized and generally only providing a basic service. This is not unique to Gember, but a cultural... read more

Well, to be fair the stuff is very friendly and the atmosphere is very nice. We went there after our visit to the Museon. We ordered the gember lunch x 2 and mac and cheese pasta for our 2,5year old son. The pasta was very creamy and was the only thing that tasted good but it was too spicy (really... More

We went to a wedding at Gember and also ate there the next day. Food was fantastic on both occasions. Service was fast. The menu had a number of choice from breakfasts, to light lunches with a large vegetarian choice. It was packed with locals on a Monday lunchtime, which says a lot about it.

I've eaten here twice whilst visiting the Gementemuseon. The first time I ate on the outside terrace, and had an open sandwich of ham, figs, cheese, and marinated sultanas - it was quite nice, but there were far too many sultanas which added nothing! The second time, we ate inside, as the terrace was full. As it was busy,there were... More

Good choice for light meals. I had brunch at Gember after a visit to the Gemeentemuseum. I recommend the frittata shiitake, broccoli and ricotta with sweet touch of Cevennes onion.

This small restaurant is attached to the Photo Museum and next door to the fabulous Gemeente Museum in The Hague. I've eaten here many times over the years and I've never been disappointed. The menu offers a good-sized selection; I can't imagine someone not finding something they liked. I also think the dishes they've chosen are creative and flavorful. I... More

Of course the food inside is the same as outside, but the summer terrace with a view on the Gemeente Museum is beautifull.
