We experienced a great view but not a great service and average food. The service missed out on details like sugar with the coffee, not all guests served at the same time and a lot more small but annoying things. The view is stunning but sharpen up guys!! You charge good prices so make it an 9 and not a... More

Came here for a family birthday celebration and enjoyed the Highest Tea experience. Service was excellent, the choice of teas superb and the selection of sweet and savoury items was astonishing - great value for money and amazing views. Recommended.

Worth going up for the spectacular view and sunset if the weather is good. We went for drink - "NO HOT DRINKS AFTER 6pm" They said - cleaning protocol they said. But people having dinner at the next table COULD have coffee that was ok. The lemon drop martini had too much sugar and a lot of it ended up... More

We had dinner at The Penthouse restaurant, and enjoyed a great meal, with friendly conversation with the staff. They were very attentive and enjoyed explaining about The Hague and just chatting with us. The food was delicious and very nicely presented. As others have mentioned, the view is absolutely spectacular and really unique: a vantage point that you couldn't really... More

The restaurant "The Penthouse" on the 42nd floor provides all it takes to start on a Friday night into a great weekend. It starts with seamless accessibility by friendly staff who guides you to the impressive elevator ride to the top. Observant waiters are advising and serving in a cool and smooth way. The food is very tasty and its... More

Very nice restaurant, located on the 42nd floor of the 'Haagse Toren'. With that, once of the most important characteristics of this place have been mentioned. The completely mind-blowing view makes the ambiance very nice. The food and wines are great, we had a four course meal, with smoked salmon and crab for starters, a soup and then beef steak... More

I stopped by The Penthouse between business meetings today to look at the venue for an upcoming dinner with my wife. The reception in the lobby asked me to pay EUR 6 just to have a look. When I refused, she then told me that I could have a guided tour, but that the other receptionist was on lunch break... More

Sorry to read about your experience and the way you feel about The Penthouse. I do, however, support the reply of my receptionist. We don't charge €6,- just to have a look. €6,- is the entrance for The Hague Tower and includes a drink. If you just want to have a look or a guided tour, we are happy to... More

Cozy place, been here for a late night party. The place is easily accessible by public transportation (trams and trains as it's located right next to The Hague's most important train station) but it might prove difficult to park your vehicle (something which you can do only in the neighbouring streets that are fairly crowded by cars during the evening...

I was there with friends to celebrate my birthday. The 'Highest Tea' (2pm-5pm) was lavish, with more finger food than I could manage. (The three-tiers of food should have given me advance warning, but I chose to ignore the signs.) The scones were among the best I have had, and the spinach soup was heavenly. A friend had the chicken... More

Great food in an amazing place. The area around the Penthouse is not so brilliant (train station), but once you're in the building, you don't notice because the views are spectacular. The staff are friendly and helpful - you aren't rushed but you aren't kept waiting either. I've been a few times and have never been disappointed in an evening... More
