Description: The Penthouse: Holland's highest restaurant Holland's highest restaurant...
The Penthouse: Holland's highest restaurant Holland's highest restaurant is located on the 42nd floor of The Hague Tower, at an altitude of 135 metres. That's higher than the restaurant of the Eiffel Tower! Offering stunning views of up to 45 kilometers, this is truly a cosmopolitan place. The Penthouse is open daily for lunch, highest tea and dinner. Reservations are recommended. Or buy a sky bar voucher, including a drink of your choice at the luxury top floor bar. Secret tip: that drink can also be a glass of Champagne or a cocktail! The outside observation deck offers a phenomenal panorama of The Hague en Scheveningen, the best place to take pictures and spectacular selfies.

Beyond Exceeding Expectations!

My husband and I dined here the 1 night we were at The Hague and it was truly amazing. I figured this would be a very touristy spot with great views but sub-par food and we were pleasantly surprised to have a stellar meal. I'm a vegetarian and the selections for vegetarians did not seem like... read more

Enjoy your tea on the top floor of The Hague Tower, the Dutch take on the NYC Flatiron Building. You'll probably need to reserve for lunch or dinner but their Sky Bar is open every day from noon till late. Weather permitting, you can get out to the balcony and admire the panoramic views of the city and the sea.... More

Glass elevator a little intimidating for someone not liking heights but that's my problem not theirs. Loved the ambience and staff were very polite and welcoming. For me this could have it all but for the little things and those little things that can be extremely irritating. One would consider the main ingredient in a risotto would be rice, the... More

I've visited the Sky Bar before but this was my first visit to the restaurant for our son's 21st birthday. The food, whilst expensive, wasn't overpriced as it looked and tasted fantastic, all served by very helpful and friendly staff. Dining with such a spectacular view is always going to be nice but the little extras such as free cocktail... More

This restaurant is located at the top of the Haagse Toren, 135 meter high, overviewing the city of The Hague. That in itself is a great experience and you can see all the way to Scheveningen. In special at sunset, it gives a strange, detached, but very luxurious atmosphere that I will remember for a long time. If you want,... More

In some places with a view, that's all that's worth going for. Not here. The view is wonderful, looking out to the North Sea, enormous churches dotting the landscape; you feel like you are in a Hague School painting. The food is certainly worth coming for too. There's a shortish selection in each course, but we chose the tasting menu.... More

Dear Hanne, thanks for your review! Sorry to hear that your main course was not as expected. I assure you only the best ingredients are used in our kitchen - but, as with any natural product, the quality can vary and sometimes a dish that is not up to quality standards slips through. I have checked with my colleague from... More

Great views, nice staff and the food was good. The menu has a nice selection of upscale products and is different from most restaurant in The Hague, so not your standard steak, but plates with a twist.
