“Real authentic asian food with a modern (european) twist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

We´ve had dinner at Block 62 by chance, because we were walking by, and it was a very pleasant surprise! Most times we have Asian food when we´re in Thaliland, Indonesia or Malaysia, we´re not that fond of the `Dutch style`, often too bland etc. But the food at Block 62 was a treat! Nice and homely decor, very attentive staff, a nice and reasonably priced winelist. Went back a few times, even with a group of collegues, I enjoyed the food and service every time. To the Swiss and Chinese owners ~Keep up the good work!

“Eat, Shop, Sleep – Block 62 has it all and more…”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

We returned last week for our second visit to Block 62, after the first class service that Angele and Marcel delivered last time we could not conceive how they could surpass it. …But they did.!

We arrived and were welcomed like family, you wont find a ‘reception desk’ here this is simply not the atmosphere that Block 62 is about – the friendly welcome and offer of refreshments far more inviting than a reception sign and hotel key wall… speaking of keys even that is a little bit different … as my photos show!

We arrived from the Hook of Holland early in the morning. Unlike ‘chain hotels’ Marcel and Angele deliver a unique service that meets the needs of their guests – in our case allowing our daughter who lives nearby to eat and spend time with us at Block 62 – we are led to believe that she is a poor student but she seemed to know a far too much amount about Angele various delicious pastries and cakes and Marcels sauces, pickles and Jams!!

This same bespoke service is consistent throughout and all of the staff are kind, friendly and helpful. We had the luxury of staying at Block 62 as soon as it opened for business, whilst we would like to think that B2 is ‘our room’ we understand that we must share and celebrate the Block 62 experience with you all! – that said the room was as immaculate now as our previous visit, additional touches have been added (all for the convenience of guests) but the same high standard of cleanliness and comfort was there. Knowing us to be partial to a beer and cup of tea they even added a mini fridge to keep our favorite tipple cool!

The food here is simply exquisite; the muesli and ‘Bento box’ was as good as ever and the two evening meals were out of this world. For that special occasion why not try and book to sit at the chef’s table – you will see how passionate Marcel is about food & presentation– good quality produce that will excite your taste buds!
Take the opportunity to try everything… if you want to know more, just ask – Angele and Marcel will happily spend time explaining – we were even given an impromptu demonstration on how to prepare and cook squid which was treated to a herbs and spice shower and served to us – simply delicious!

T’s top tip’ - I would highly recommend that if calling in for coffee, brunch or dinner that you bring a bigger bag - you will need the room to take something home with you!

Thanks again Angele and Marcel, we look forward to seeing you again early next year. xx

“Delicious! Heerlijk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Just returned home from our first dinner at Block 62 and immediately jumped on my iPad to write this review. Angele and Marcel have a cozy little restaurant, with interesting homemade delicacies for purchase and a delicious menu for their guests to enjoy. Marcel even took the time away from his kitchen to chat with us about the curry pastes, gave us two recipes out of his own kitchen and some free Thai paste to take home and try. If you are in Breda stop in for a great food experience and take some things home to try. We will definitely be back for more!
