Great place if you like steaks

The focus is very much on meat here, especially steak. I enjoy coming to the Blockhouse (which is actually a chain - you find it them in various cities in Germany, and the food is generally above average, if a bit standardised. It can get very busy, so you may have to wait for a table. The... read more

I bet you wwould struggle to get a bad meal at Block House. I've been to this one many times, and it's always good. Only problem is the secret is out, so you may have to wait to get a table. This is the place that converted me to steaks. I highly recommend Mr Rump steak. Comes with a nice... More

Do not hesitate to go to this place. This second visit was as well as the first one last year! Same perfect quality, top class service even when the staff has to struggle through the customer blocking the way. Just one little critic, the offered wines should be of a higher quality, especially the French one. The wine was good... More

We passed this restaurant on our first night in Hanover and noticed how busy it was so decided that we would eat here the next evening. It was a Saturday night and when we arrived at the restaurant there was quite a queue outside but the hostess was taking note of people waiting for tables and as there was only... More

Very good service and friendly staff.Good choice on the menu and alternatives for those who don't want steak. For those that do there is a good choice of cuts and sauces.

The t-bone steak was ok. Service was bad - they forgot to give me a proper steak knife and paid no attention. Skip the coffee - horrible.

Right in the centre and next to the taxi rank so was in eye view. As soon as I got there. Very busy but being on my own on business I got a table (in a row of other sad individuals). Salad starter was very good and had all the things I like in a salad (radish , toms ,... More
