We love to come here after shopping, to eat a sandwich or salad accompanied by a good beer. The terrace has a nice location, less noisy than the Grote Markt around the corner, but still with enough action for people watching.
The service by the young (student?) waiters is usually attentive, friendly and quick.
They call themselves "the Belgian of The Hague" and it's true that they offer a wide selection of Belgian beers on tap or bottled.
Their menu offers enough variety for lunch, snacks and dinner. The steak I once had was good and value for money. Worth to stop by when you're shopping in the center of The Hague!

We stopped at Rootz with the intention of eating but it took so long to get our first beer and order some bitterballen, we decided to depart after only 30 minutes.
I even went up to the bar TWICE to inquire what had happened to the beers - the answer was the same - its just coming !!!
Very disorganized service in the open air terrace area and needs some good management.
Heard good reports about this place and it was close to our hotel. Fortunately we found Pavlovs round the corner from this place.

Good beer, good food, good location. Demerits for uneven service. Had the 25 euro dinner with spinach + shrimp salad starter, lamb chops main, and lemon tart desert. Plus Kompaan 20 and LA Trapped Dubble beers.

Not the first time here, but needed to comment on the attitude of the commercial manager. We went to enjoy a pleasant evening with friends. The food was excellent, as normal, service spot on... so good to be advised on which is the best beer for the food, personal taste and the weather. Just as we finished eating a rather juvenile chap, who we later found out was the commercial manager, decided to turn the music up. Whilst I don't object to loud music, there's a time and a place. Creating an environment in a quality restaurant is not the time and place. I don't expect to shout so that I can be heard after eating, especially when the sole purpose of the increased volume seemed to be to please his admiring female entourage and apparently sycophantic male friends, none of whom had eaten or were going to eat. We went inside to continue our conversation. If we see this gentleman there again, we will cancel our booking and leave. The negative view on the outdoor seating and average rating for atmosphere/bar scene is based purely on the actions of this alleged manager.

Over 80 kinds of Belgium beer and nice atmosphere/service but we ordered their rib eye and it was really sinewy and tasteless.
