Nice view, price/quality is not reasonable... food was just good but not really exciting... in fact, the soup was watery, and the main courses missed some seasoning. Deserts were standard. 3 out of 5.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2016

First of all, my thanks to Tara for her help with the reservation and pleasant email exchange. That was a great start. We were hoping to enjoy the view from the restaurant during our dinner. We did not expect that the dinner itself would be so good. Everything was suuuuuuper tasty and well seasoned (didn't need another grain of salt),... More

Food was ok. Not brilliant, but good. Service was really medium. We wanted to have a drink before the dinner at the bar. They placed us in a corner of the bar/restaurant and after 15 minutes we decided to ask whether we might have some drinks. Service at the table is also of the forgetting kind, with about 6 different... More

When most review complained on service, surprisingly I have to say the service was alright during my first visit and it didn't take too long to get any service. The duck delight was good; the scallop was done well; and the beef steak and the tartare were extraordinary. Except that the oysters were a bit "special" - the shells are... More

For a long time we've been wanting to go here, but thought it would be one of those places you pay a lot for the view with just average food. Still we thought in these dark winter days it would be nice to see our city lit up from up high and we were not disappointed by the view. Luckily... More

Went to the Penthouse with 4. After a very nice reception it took 20 min. before drinks could be ordered. This remained the problem during the whole dinner. We asked for a wine menu. Did not get it. Asked for some bread. Did not get it. The food was good, views were great and the staff was friendly. However terribly... More

I love this place - it doesn't look like much from the outside as it is just in a tower block that also seems to hold offices, and a gym. But when you go up to the 42nd floor, there's a lovely cocktail bar with a terrace you can wander around on to see the view of the city. You... More

We have been a few times at this restaurant since it opened. We have always enjoyed the view and the atmosphere. The food was not impressive in the beginning.

We were curious about this restaurant as it is located on the 42nd floor in the "The Hague Tower" (the last floor is not reachable by lift yet), so we decided to book a table on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is easy to reach as it is located about 150m away from the train station (Holland Spoor") where many... More

Description
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.
