“Price per Value”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We recently had a dinner with a couple of friends and it was a very good surprise.
We opted for the 4 dishes menu, mainly focussed on fish menu.
Everything was super, great ingredients, super tasty and careful and precise presentation.
On top of that we got also different offered amused and a couple of dessert free of charge.
Ambience and atmposphere are ok,
Staff very kind and ready to any request.

“Gezellig!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is located in a pretty street, has a warm modern decor and overall a good ambience. Everyone dressed up nicely, so, lucky I left my oz flip flops at home.

Our table chose the 3 course menu. From the amuse to the wines to the petit four with coffee, everything was amazing. A lot of asian influence which was perfect for me but may not be for everyone. For example, when the fish dish came it was raw, sashimi style... One person in our table don't eat raw fish but there was no way you can tell from the menu that it would be raw. In the end he simply didn't eat his fish.

The waiting staff were extremely helpful and was happy to explain things both in English and Dutch. Overall a very pleasant experience.

“Fantastic high quality food and excellent service”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We went for the 'surprise' menu, and we were very pleasantly surprised! Great food combinations and lovely wines, coupled with excellent service. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. For the quality of the food, this was well worth the money!

“Fantastic Taste Experience”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

From the 'Amuse' (as the Dutch call it!) to the petit fours served with coffee, dinner at Blok's was an amazing taste experience with excellent service to go along with it. The kitchen was glass fronted and It was good to see the chef actually in the kitchen cooking unlike some other Michelin starred restaurants!
We partook of the €45 four course menu that, considering the quality if the food served, was excellent value especially compared to the fairly average but expensive food served in the restaurants in the two town squares. Add to that the excellent, unobtrusive service and peaceful ambiance, this is a superb way to spend an evening.

“Costly starshine...”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

If you're in for a healthy walk from your parked car (at the periphery of the, almost, car-free old city center), through a beautiful historical environment to the Blok's restaurant, you will not be disappointed. That is to say, if you're prepared to pay a healthy bill... The restaurant has been awarded a Michelin star, and you'll find yourself paying toll for that. Nevertheless, the food is original, elegant and beautifully served; the house wines are tasty and well chosen in harmony with the menu, and service is what you can expect when you're bathing in starshine. We haven't seen a menu as we followed the waitress's recommendation to trust on the chef's inspiration. This yielded us mackarel, haddock (which you would not expect in a top restaurant) and lamb meat, to give you an idea that the chef makes unconventional choices. A final, critical comment is that the restaurant, located in a fairly narrow room, was very noisy at the busy evening that we were there.
