Three of us had a very pleasant lunch at The Penthouse. The menu sounded delicious and we were not disappointed. Winners were the T42 soup and the Guinea Fowl. The service was very good although the experience could be improved with a little faster delivery of the courses. The view is spectacular even though the weather wasn't particularly clear on... More

We enjoyed the three course set menu and a bottle of wine. The mustard soup, that was recommended by our attentive waiter, was very creamy and tasty, a real surprise. The light show that displayed on the windows every so often, was quite entertaining. Overall, et had an excellent evening.

While the views, the sound and light show and the food were fantastic, the whole experience was left slightly tainted by me witnessing the maître d abusing bar and floor staff as I was leaving the bathroom. For such a beautiful evening with colleagues to be left with that impression on my mind was a real disappointment. It should not... More

We visited the restaurant on the 42th floor with friends from America, so they could have a nice view over the city of the hague. First we had drinks in the bar (the wines were really good) and after we took our seats in the restaurants. The service was good, however some people struggled with the english. The view is... More

Enjoyable experience overall. We zoomed up 42 floors in the speedy view lift and were greeted warmly. Staff, mostly from Planet Gorgeous, were friendly & attentive. The restaurant is contemporary, simply done out, & of course, has terrific views. It's smart but informal. The International menu (evening) offers a la carte, which we opted for, or a set 3/4 or...

Really, really loved the view. Being born and raised in The Hague, it really is quite special to have dinner here and go outside to enjoy the views. Food was good, not fantastic. I expected a bit more overall and higher quality, also with what they could have done with the interrior in this gorgeous location. Hopefully this will improve.

We visited this restaurant one quiet and unfortunately rainy Monday evening. The restaurant is located on the 42nd floor and offers great views of the surrounding areas. We couldn't fully appreciate the view due to the rather miserable weather but nevertheless we could still appreciate some of the city lights which only come alive when at this height! I would...

We are definately going there again. And recommending it to our friends. Parking was easy to find. Food was very tasty. Great view. We were not waiting for too long to be served. Waitresses were pleasant, polite, neutral appearance and not annoying. Acceptable prices and reasonable quantity of food on the plates. What I personally disliked was: 1) While doing... More

Great atmosphere and view. The staff also very friendly. Unfortunately the food was mediocre. You expect better food/taste from a restaurant like this
