The view from this restaurant is superb. The staff know that's what you've come for, and invite you to walk round the (enclosed) balcony before taking you to your table. The menu has a 3,4,or 5 course option, with the same dishes as the a la carte menu. I don't know if anyone could have made their way through the... More

From the moment we arrived, we were treated as if we were the only people in the restaurant(which was full of happy/smiling guests). While we sipped a delicious prosecco, it was quickly obvious that we could not choose just one dish for lunch...so we chose all 6 and decided to share. Presented and portioned well, the quality of the ingredients... More

High Tea at The Penthouse is the highest Tea experience for us in The Hague (the seat of the Dutch Government). It is the most relaxing way to see The Haugue on the 42nd Floor, with a wonderful view of the City while having high tea. The Service is very friendly and efficient, especially the Peruvian girl serving us and... More

The views over The Hague and surroundings are absolutely stunning and all the tables are set in such a way that you will always have a view.

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
