We visited De Poort on a Wednesday and a Sunday in August for lunch. We sat outside on their terrace first time and inside on the second occasion. Service was prompt and friendly. The lunch menu (available in English) offered Dutch snacks (e.g. Bitterballen, croquettes),...More

Loved the location along the canal. We got a chicken salad. Very good. Was nice to just relax and watch the boats go by.

We decided to eat at De Poort as we'd just been to the Dutch Film Festival (in the Louis Hartlooper cinema complex just across the street). As you'd expect, it was very busy but we'd reserved a table so it wasn't a problem. The place...More
