“The best Blockhouse...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

we ever had. We had the Prime beef, Mr. and Mrs. Rumsteak. The service was very friendly
and the steaks are wonderful cooked, Potatoes fresh and perfect. The chef was so busy
we where wondering how he could managed all the orders.
The service was so fast and friendly we never had at a Blockhouse Restaurant. After our
dinner we have been to a other Blockhouse which was by far not so good in preparing
and service.
Any time we are in Berlin we will visit the Blockhouse, Friedrichstrasse. again.

“Superb steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Sunday evening in Berlin - the meal was perfect! I took a Filet Mignon rare and my partner well done, and both were tender and melted in the mouth. The bottle of Malbec for 18.80 Euros was good value for money, and as the steak came with a huge baked potato and garlic bread there was definitely enough food! The only slight drawback is the closeness to the train - but we soon got used to the occasional noise. Our waiter was helpful and very polite. Highly recommended if you are looking for a good steak!

“Very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We ate here when we arrived in Berlin, as it was near our hotel, it was reasonably busy, and the menu looked fine. We were so impressed we returned the following night before going to 02 World to see the magnificent Barbra Streisand. Over the two nights, we had mainly steak, but Himself had turkey steak with creamed mushrooms, and our friend had a New York burger which she couldn't finish. It tasted lovely, and was obviously home made. The steaks were beautifully tender, and cooked as ordered. On both nights, our bill for four was just over €80 for 4 mains, a couple of side orders ( green salad and potato and celeriac mash, both delicious) a bottle of rosé and soft drinks. Lovely friendly staff also get full marks.

“Mediocre is putting it kindly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We choose this restaurant bc it is close to our hotel, Park Inn, and TA reviews. We have been in Berlin for 4 days and this is this first review I have posted and am doing so bc I disagree with those posted previously. While the women working in the restaurant who brought our food were pleasant, our male server was aloof and disinterested - the steaks were less than average, at least by US standards, and in all fairness my first in Germany. The sour cream for the potatoes was good and generously served - regrettably submitted
