“Great steaks cooked to perfection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We visited this restaurant on a recent visit to Berlin on a Tuesday evening and it was relatively quiet inside, the staff were pleasant and spoke fluent English, and we were seated straight away inside the restaurant.

My husband ordered a rump steak and I ordered a barbecue steak platter which were cooked perfectly, they both came with a jacket potato with sour cream and a slice of garlic bread - which was delicious.

we also ordered some desserts and the bill along with drinks for the 2 of us came to around 45 Euros which seemed pretty reasonable. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Best steakhouse in Berlin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

is probably a bit over the hill, but this restaurant does not disappoint. Originating from Hamburg, this chain of steakhouses focuses on quality. Fairly popular judging by long waiting lines throughout the entire evening (Saturday in April), and luckily we had reserved tables, quality is indeed in order at this place near Alexanderplatz.

The menu card is rather traditional but comprehensive with a great selection of steaks, cooked to order, served with salad and potatoes (baked, French fries etc). My steak (rum-steak) was tender, cooked with a mix of spices, had great taste and of high quality. It was a busy evening for staff, but we were served with efficiency and a smile. Also fairly decent prices, check their website, and is much recommended for a casual night out in Berlin. Good for bigger parties, but do reserve in advance. Will return.

“Excellent steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

My daughter and i visited about 7pm on a friday evening. Certainly it was not busy but the staff were attentive and friendly and the service was fast. We had the steak medallions which were delicious. I would recommend the green pepper sauce. All in all great Value for money. I would definitely return if I visit berlin again

“Yummy steak as we hoped”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Used the Trip Advisor 'City Guides' app again to find a restaurant close to where we were, and weren't disappointed.

The steak was delicious, melt in the mouth and served with nice fries and sides. A bottle of nice red wine and the obligatory apple strudel completed our meal.

Would certainly go back again, in fact - we nearly did!!

“A good night on the town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We went 17 people for dinner here and had booked a table in advance which was no hassle. We needed 5 separate bills and this was no problem, either. It was a bit of a handful to handle all our various orders and preferences but the staff was cool and courteous. We had all sorts of steaks and also one fish course. The beef was of a high quality - as it should be in a steak-house that boasts of its own in-house butchery - and all was cooked to order. One T-bone was a bit to rare and had to be re-done and this was no problem.
You should come for the steaks - the wine list was Not impressive...
I would go here again - it was a highly positive experience - and I would book in advance again, as there was a queue at the door all night long - perhaps due to the Berlin half-marathon taking place the next morning from the Alexanderplatz with a resulting vast number of overnighters in the area.
The Block House is situated right on the fringe of the Alexanderplatz and is easily reached by train and bus.
