Fodor's Review

Restored in the Old Dutch style (complete with polished woods and ceiling paintings), this restaurant—part of the Die Poert van Cleve hotel complex—is, in fact, officially Old Dutch. Its roots as a steak brasserie stretch back to 1870, when it awed the city as the first eaterie with electric light. By the time you read this, De Poort will have served nearly 6 million of its acclaimed juicy slabs, served with a choice of five accompaniments. The menu is supplemented with other options such as smoked mackerel, a traditional pea soup thick enough to eat with a fork, and a variety of fish and traditional Dutch dishes.
