We had a table for two along a beautiful picture window and together with very tasty food a perfect night unveiled with the best company one could ask for!!! The view was amazing, seeing the enlightened city of The Hague before us!!! The dishes that were... 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

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 a wonderful lunch here and am looking forward to our next visit already. The view is wonderful so even if you just went for the view plus drinks and nibbles, you would love it. 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
