Some friend living in The Hague brought me there telling me "Dude you have to see this ". I was amazed , the decor in the lobby, the view on top, the skyline view while eating this tasty risotto. Service is simple but good, and staff is gentle. Good experience and memories.

We had lunch and some champagne, both of which were excellent. The food portions are generous and the champagne is GOOD!! We had wonderful... More

We had dinner with two of our friends in The Penthouse. We all had different starters and we were all impressed! The main courses were equally impressive. The people serving were somewhat distant but efficient. The wine list was good because of the diversity and the possibility to have wine by the glass from several countries and regions. We had...

I did have somewhat high expectations but was still positively surprised. The main thing, food, was excellent and the best thing about the restaurant. Also the view across the city was really nice. Service was working well too. The restaurant is located quite far from anything else interesting. If you don't like walking, you can take a tram that stops... More

When arriving by car, make sure you not only book a table for yourselves, but also book a parking space for your car. Otherwise take a taxi. The view from the top floor is great, but that was the only thing that was top. The service was helpful, but could be more personal. However, the quality of the food was... More

This restaurant is situated in the heart of the Hague. It is on top of a very tall building and has a stunning view. The food was excellent, I loved the combinations - they came together very well. My husband's steak was a little overdone and upon remark the waiter took the food back and brought another plate, this time... More

The Penthouse is on the 42nd floor of the Hague Tower. The special elevator takes you up there in 1 go. It was dissappointing that the Varanda was not open, since it was a beautiful evening for dining outside. But the staff was very friendly, brought us very nice food and was respectful of our pace and dynamics. I would... More

Went here with my boyfriend for dinner and had a fantastic meal, loved every course. The waiters were very friendly and helpful and the restaurant was lovely. The view was very romantic and made for one of the best dinners I've had.
