Went on a Sunday night and had a T-Bone, nice cut, well cooked, lovely home made bread and a small baked potato. Would recommend.

Went here as we had just got to our hotel which was next door and needed somewhere quick. No tables immediately so they asked us to wait and gave us a complementary drink which was nice. The steaks seemed fine. My fish was Ok but nothing more. Service a bit business like from the waiter. Nothing specifically wrong but just... More

Good service and good choice of menu. Steak came with garlic bread and a salad. Steak was well seasoned, perfectly cooked. Not long to wait for food to be served. Would definitely eat here again.

Had dinner with group of four adults. The food is good , The meat was well cooked and the french fries were excellent. The service a bit on the slow side. The pricing seems to be odd. Why should I pay for Mr Rumpsteak (250 gramm for CHF 45.90) 44% more than for a Mrs Rumpsteak (180 gramm for 31.90)?... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your rating! it is not our MR.Rumpsteak, which is too expensive, our Mrs. Rumpsteak is a welcome greeting, so a good entrecote remains affordable. You get no RUMP, but the finest Entrecote, even if we call it RUMP. ;-) I'm sorry that the additional insert did not work, we take care of the parking costs... More

As the temperature at night was close to 30 and our accommodations sided with the Block House Basel, we decided to forgo a long walk and enjoy a steak dinner here. On a nice day or evening, there patio is a great place to sit. Their menu is fairly expansive and expensive. However, they have for about 99 CHF, what... More

My son absolutely loves Blockhouse, its always his first choice and now it has become ours too for a nice steak, chips and salad with a beer or too. Nice atmosphere, easy parking below and good prices.

We had good service on both of our visits and the food was OK. Basic steakhouse. Enjoyed a berry drink suggested by our waiter. Seemed a bit pricey but we went because it is next to a Best Western hotel

We didn't like the Block House Restaurant. The meet was good but the vegetables were like thrown on a plate - somehow loveless. Not worth the price
