The meat is just as perfect as in one of the original Block House restaurants in Hamburg, Germany. The tenderness of the high quality beef in combination with the remarkable restaurant settings brings joy to anyone in favor of a traditional and original steak recipe experience. This is what to expect from and how to manage a successful franchise establishment!

This restaurant is next door to the Hotel Stucki where we were staying so we decided to give it a try. Low expectations due to the large size of the establishment and being between the hotel and a mall but we were pleasantly surprised to find very good food and service. We were seated and served promptly and the restaurant... More

My kids love to go here. Excellent meat, nice atmosphere and excellent service. We celebrated our son's tenth birthday here and they really made something nice out of it. Always good food for a reasonable price in Switzerland.

The food on offer at the Block House is very good, I visited it mainly as it was part of the adjacent Hotel Stucki and I wasn't interested in exploring the city after a long day at work - often this can lead to poor eating choices, however in this instance it was the opposite - I'd happily eat here...

We were several times and got always the same excellent quality of meet. The service was very good and the prices ok! As it is every night fully booked, we recommend to make reservations in advance. This is also a sign of the quality of the restaurant.

Description
Block House
has been serving the finest steaks sourced from its own specialist boucherie since 1968.
Crisp on the outside, succelent and delicate pink on the inside,
our steaks are served with our popular side dishes and fitting wines,
all in the unwaveringly high quality that we stand for as a family business.

It all begann in 1968 with the first Block House restaurant on Dorotheenstrasse in Hamburg.
And now we welcome more than six million guest a year to our 45 restaurants located throughout Europe.
The menu is identical in all of our restaurants,
as is the typical Block House cosy ambience that invites you to combine good food with communication.
