The restaurant is attached to the hotel Stuecki. It is open all day, so is good for an early or late dinner, as you wish. Service was quick and efficient. Waiters spoke English. Good quality steak, but other options as well. Limited desert menu but...More

If you go there you should try one of their steaks. I had the Mrs. Rumpsteak and it was done exactly the way I wanted it. The service was quick and friendly. But it is a bit pricey. If you want to save some money...More

Ate here while staying at Stucki hotel. The manager sat us with no reservations on a busy Saturday night. While the prices seem high there are average of the area. The meal was good and the service was friendly. Would recommend others to try.

The staff are kind and the atmosphere is good. They are very accommodative and helpful. The meat is, I believe, either US or Australian.

The reservation was easy. At our table, 3 different soups were ordered...all of them were very very salty (I'm used to soups in CH being salty, but this was very extreme). The baked potatoes with sourcream were quite tasty. The steaks appeared well cooked (medium)...More

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.
