I have visited The Penthouse twice last week. We were welcomed by friendly staff. The atmosphere is really nice and there are comfortable seats (there is enough space between the tables). I have tried the cocktails, ice coffee and the different desserts. The big chocolate coupe with different types of chocolate and nougat you really have to try. The view... More

The highlight is the view and the ambiance. The service is friendly and welcoming but slow. The food is nice but it's not amazing and is overpriced. Overall it was a very nice experience.

I booked thinking it may be a bit of a gimmick, but it really is amazing. The immediate surrounds aren't great, but once in the glass lift and then inside it's a superb venue. Sitting in comfort watching the sun set over the coast is amazing, matched by very attentive, personal service and high quality food. To be honest, you... More

What an amazing location for a restaurant! On the 42nd floor of The Hague Tower you'll find The Penthouse restaurant. The staff was polite, kind and very service-oriented. The food was also very good. The waiter got us great glasses of wine for every course of our meal. After dinner, when we were leaving the restaurant, we were admiring the... More

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
