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.

42 storeys up and you get a great view of the city. Not the most varied menu in the world, especially if you're not a seafood or fish fan but nevertheless; very nice food, well presented in a unique setting.

We were welcomed by a friendly lady at the ground floor desk. She verified our reservation and explained to us where we should go to get to the restaurant at the 42nd floor. When arrived we were invited to use the cloakroom by an other sympathetic lady behind the desk. The staff of the restaurant welcomed us and we were... More

It is a lively place you go for the views and not for the food. Having said this, the food was ok - Tartar was very good, Fish was only ok. Service was mixed, but on the better side. Also a nice bar. Make sure to make reservations ahead.

I was meeting with a colleague in the afternoon. There are not many options in this part of The Hague. There is a starbucks however The Penthouse's skybar on the 42nd floor has a much much better view.

The view, at night, is spectacular. The food and service were, for the price, average. Nothing to complain about but without the view you wouldn't come again.

Great view, very good service, pleasant atmosphere, stylish and decent. Food was better than expected. Not cheap, but you would not expect from such place to have very wallet-friendly prices, at least for dinner.
