The view is breathtaking. The food is delicious: fresh and perfectly cooked. The wine list is especially worthwhile. Finally, the service is impeccable. The servers are incredibly professional and keen to respond to every request. Thanks for making us a perfect dinner / evening !

Incredible service and food! Perfect for a romantic diner. I usually go to the restaurant because I love the view, but I must say the best part of the Penthouse is the administration. Recently I had 2 reservations and I had to cancel because my ex-girlfriend broke with me and they understood the situation perfectly.

I went here more than 5 times, mostly to show people around all the spots in The Hague. Apart from the view from the hague, this service is better by a lunch or to drink a wine after 21:00. Not for anything else. Have to say that the lunch might be a bit pricy with his around 30-35 euro a... More

Thanks for your review! Just to confirm pricing: the sky bar entrance voucher is €6,-, not €7,- and for that price you can have a drink of your choice - so yes, also a glass of wine or another drink that has a price over €6,-. And the service should always be good of course, what can happen is that... More

Unfortunately, we had not enjoyed the place as much. Despite the place positioning itself as a "higher class" eatery, there are a few aspects one may find odd. First off: there is no parking available for guests (there is one in existence, yet rather remote from the place) nor there is a clear approach for a taxi. The bar as... More

Great view and a stylish restaurant with good food and wines. A bit "off" but still quite easy to get there. Good atmosphere for business dinner.

A great view, friendly and good service, tasteful wines, delicious meals (St. Jacob's scallops are the best), surprisingly big portions and the ambience for a perfect evening. Check out their website for more information and the menu. Only parking is a little difficult but the tram stop is just a few hundred meters away.

I enjoyed the view overlooking The Hague while enjoying cocktails and a nice dinner. And on New Year's Eve, I was able to see the foray of fireworks in the city. The Penthouse makes an effort to add a touch of class, care, and hipness to the dining/drinking experience and it works. One of my favorite places to "chillax"in The... More

To be honest I've not been in The Penthouse yet, but read, heard and seen of it a lot. This triggers my curiousity and one of my promises for 2015 is to go there for a cup of tea with my friend to enjoy the outstanding view. Especially when they have live jazz, which they had in the past. Looking... More

on the 42nd floor, after a fast ride in the outside elevator of the building, a fantastic view of den haag, and good food, with international waiters and waitresses. (english, french and greek), all 4 of us were pleasantly surprised, and we told our friends already of our experience.

The Penthouse' biggest value is the view of The Hague night skyline. The rest is average, the food and service are ok, but nothing spectacular.
