We visited this restaurant for the birthday of my fiancee and we had a great experience. The view from there was spectacular, you could see Rotterdam, the Hague and Delft...The 4-courses menu we had was prepared with accuracy in decoration and the taste was really of high standards. It is expensive for an average person to eat in this restaurant... More

The tallest building (?) in The Hague with a fantastic view and great bites to beat! The Hague lacks a spectacular skyline, but with the flat landscape you can see to the sea. The food is quite tasty, albeit a tad expensive. Very recommendable for fellas who want to impress their date or girls who want to feel "on top... More

The penthouse lends credence to its name by being situated on the 42nd floor in The Hague (a 5min walk from station Den Haag HS (Hollands Spoor). A very quick elevator trip gets you there though if you suffer from a fear of heights I would suggest not standing near the window as the elevator is on the exterior of... More

The penthouse has an amazing view over the city. The food is good. The cocktail area is very nice. They have a nice wine list. The staff however could be better. Lack of service or knowledge of the wine or foods they serve. If this improves then it is a great restaurant and bar.

You can enjoy decent food here, fresh and well prepared. The service is little better than Dutch average. However the amazing view is certainly worth the visit

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
