Best thing about this venue is the view. Would highly recommend coming for drinks, appetizers or small plates vs. a full meal. We dinned here for a special occasion so ordered entrees + mains + deserts as well as drinks. Most of the food was interesting and flavorful, especially the starters. Some of the combinations were a bit off though.... More

In brief, visiting yesterday (27 February) the Hague Tower and dining at the Penthouse was an awesome experience! Excellent staff service starts even from the tower's basement staff. The place though imposing by its construction is very welcoming, via the friendly, skillful and obliging staff. The grandiose panoramic view of the Hague's greater area makes the Penthouse the ideal set... More

It is all about the view! Spectacular!!!! The restaurant itself serves good quality food. We were there for lunch. A terrific Pumpkin soup with chives and an herb dollop followed by a caesar salad (quite large) with crispy chicken. (or seared tuna). My companion has a burger/fries which she liked a lot. Sauvignon blanc and a dry rose (both house... More

This is a great place to get birds eye view photographs of the city. The ticket entitles you a drink, and the food is priced reasonably, the service good. We enjoyed our evening over drinks, with a great view.

You just cant beat an exceptional view, friendly staff and good food...however with the desert offered (set dinner menu) you immediately forgot this restaurants good points. What are they thinking of? Two biscuits halved, ice cream covered with some co-agulated globular substance? I believe it was supposed to be a mousse.....The glass shattered when I tried to break the biscuit.......I'm... More
