Came in for dinner with high expectations. After waiting (too much time ) for the waitress to attend us our orders took to much time to be served. My cheeseburger was too dry, my friend's steaks were tasty though too done. Altogether a nice place though due to high expectations a bit dissapointed.

I have been going to Block House Restaurants all over Germany since 2010. The beer, the service, th salads, the cleanliness, the baked potatoes have not changed and remain very good to excellent. However, the quality of the meat is deteriorating. A T-Bone that costs 34 Euros should be tasty and juicy, not chewy. This is the third time that... More

Was told by a friend to try this when he heard I was visiting the area and I wasnt disapointed. The steaks where cooked to both our requests and the sides were very tasty indeed. Although we went on a Thursday evening it was still very busy and mainly by locals which is always a good sign. Service a bit... More

My husband and I were just in Berlin last week and ate dinner at the Block House on Friedrichstrasse. We both ordered Rib Eye steaks medium rare - the steaks were cooked perfectly, tender & with great flavor. The meals came with the Block House salad which was huge - extremely fresh, had everything you could think of a salad... More

We queued here and we're told to come back in 15 mins which we did - we were a bit concerned that the man who dealt with us hadn't taken our name he just walked away saying to come back .. we returned to find a much longer queue and the same man very rudely told us we didn't have... More

My wife and I had dinner here twice during our stay in Berlin, the food was excellent, however the waiting staff were not very attentive and it was quite hard to get their attention when we wanted to return our steaks to have them cooked some more. The food tasted great, and was reasonably priced.

Visited Block House last night. All 5 of our group really enjoyed it, the food and service was great. And the staff were all really friendly, no pressure to finish your meal quickly. Don't let the outside put you off as is just beside the rail station - would highly recommend.

The restaurant is a chain located mainly in Germany. But there are also some Sunnites in the world, for example in Spain. The restaurant we ate was very large. It is possible to sit inside and outside - we chose to sit outside because it was a beautiful day . We eat there the bone steak 500 grams - it... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
