Went here with coworkers. Always skeptical of steak houses, being from Texas, but I was pleasantly surprised. I had the steak with baked potato and both were extremely good. Steak was good quality and perfectly cooked. Potato was just the right size and was cooked well enough to be soft throughout but not too dry. I also had the cheesecake... More

After some visits to Maredo steakhouses in Berlin, I wanted to try another brand. So went to this Block House near Bahnhof Freidrichstrasse. Very good location, close to the station. Good and fast service, Menu rather dull and standard. Food arrived quickly and was ok. Price was reasonable. Although they have a salad bar in the middle of the room,... More

Food was average, was expecting more from other reviews. Onion soup was almost water. Shrimp salad had like micro-shrimps :/ Meat with vegetables, had almost not meat at all.

We arrived at the Melia around early afternoon and it was straight around to Block House for a late lunch. As always the steaks are so delicious, although this time my ribeye was very, very rare (rather than medium-rare) although still highly enjoyable. Accompanied by weissbier and then followed with a mulled fruit & ice-cream dessert it's one of the... More

Visited this restaurant on a Friday night. There were 4 of us. It was very busy and a little noisy but we were quickly seated in a quieter corner. Staff were very friendly and efficient and spoke good English. The menu had plenty to choose from and our food was delivered promptly. The stir fried beef and vegetables with pasts... More

We've been to the restaurant twice during our stay in Berlin and first time we didn't even pay attention to some things which we noticed the second time. First of all, the steaks are really great and you probably won't be wrong with any steak you choose from the menu, however, everything else we tried was average or worse. The... More

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
