Feels quiet trendy and the efforts to try for modern just comes across slightly tacky. Large picture of part naked lady doesn't help (I didn't fund it art - just cheap). Food reflects same approach - it is not bad, but certainly not special so not worth any hype or premium. View is fantastic and walking on the very high... More

Took family for a special occasion and despite other reviews thought that the food was excellent! The signature Tuna dish was very good as a starter and the Lamb was superb. The staff were very attentive and looked after us very well. Above all, the views and window show were fantastic and made a special night very memorable.

Superb evening here with a colleague. We had various of the chefs recommended dishes along with a bottle of Chablis. Was a lovely night out and the view is spectacular. Really like this restaurant.

The food is not exceptional, not bad, but not what you expect for the price.. But of course the view is amazing, from day or from night, and that's why you have for your money.

The view of Den Haag is exceptional. The food was terrific! We ate there for lunch. The lunch menu is limited, but it still offers a variety of items. I rather have quality instead of quantity. The service was great. Martijn and Candy assisted us in wine selection and food. They were extremely helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is romantic.... More

I've been here on my birthday with a friend from the city. We mostly went for the view but were excited to have a dinner in a fancy restaurant. The food was tasty and well presented (they even sprayed perfume on the smoked salmon....and that was quite a laughter for both of us). At the end the bill was way... More

This restaurant has most likely the most amazing view in the Netherlands. Great service, great food and wine. I will definitely return.
