Took my study abroad group for a nice dinner. There was something for everyone. The device was great, even though they were busy, and the food was wonderful. I had avoided going in the past because it is a chain, but it was quite nice.

I was here for a pre theatre dinner and just had a burger, baked potato and coleslaw. It sounds plain but it was excellent quality. I finished it off with apfelstrudel and a coffee. Service was excellent and although they were extremely busy , we didn't have to wait long for a table.

I was there with my collegues for lunch and i had the lunch menu which consisted of a fish skewer with rice and ratatouille. It was one of the worst lunches i had. The fish was boiled and overcooked without any spices or dressing and the rice as well. The ratatouille was basically just made of onions. My collegues had... More

While chains offer the "you know what you get" advantage, the bar of expectations is often set pretty low. In the case of Block House, this need not be so. They are on par with plenty of independent restaurants serving primarily beef. This is true also for the restaurant on Karl Marx street. Service was welcoming and attentive - though... More

Our last night in Berlin was a treat as we had a perfectly-done steak (Queen Rib) with all the trimmings. We ate inside, as it was very cool out, but there were many diners outside. Good location, hard-working staff.

We were looking to have dinner just outside of the Berlin palace hotel where one of us was staying and we were heading for some Italian place which was full. Down the road was the Block house and let me tell you, I couldn't have been greeted any better. The staff are friendly and the place is huge. I could... More

I don't know what Mr. Block does differently but obviously his team is well trained. The staff is always so friendly and attentive. Can you imagine that they personalize your bill by drawing a small christmas tree on your bill. These kind of things make such a difference, especially when you travel a lot and dine out a lot.

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
