Lovely atmosphere. Candles lit and fresh flowers on all the tables yet it had a funky vibe. Went back a second night as it was so good the first time. Vegetarian options and also great burgers.

Steak (Entrecôte) was really nice! Medium Raw Perfect to the point. French fries quite small (compared to country potatoes) maybe a little not enough fried I will be back!

The best thing about this small charming restaurant is the high quality of the food. You can taste good proper ingredients.... I'm vegetarian and I was so happy to find such great vegetarian dishes while my meat loving friends were devouring their burgers and pastrami!!

Great vibes, friendly staff and lots of wooden tables. Ordered the quinoa burger with fries. Highly recommend this dish - one of the better veggie burgers I've had! Affordable prices - burger and fries was €10 and large sandy €5. I'll be coming back.

I pass by that restaurant every day but I never went in. Trump's victory was our black humored reason to go to an american-like restaurant, just eating our frustration away. I love fish and I choose the fish of day. I always finish up fish,...More

I had read up on this place beforehand, and as I love pastrami sandwiches, I was not disappointed. Lots of meat, with sauerkraut, mustard, horseradish and gherkins, all between 2 large slices of tasty toasted brown bread. Fries were good too. Not a lot of...More

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

"Quality of the food, a simple menu and joy of life": these are the inspirations that drove Udi and Sebastiano, two old time friends respectively from Israel and Italy, to create their new restaurant and bar concept in the heart of Mitte. During the day an easy going Pastrami Bar serves the original Reuben sandwich, delicious home made burgers and much more; Ruben & Carla at night lowers its lights, lights the candles, and changes itself into a sophisticated meat restaurant that serves prime quality steaks "Tagliata" style with hand cut fries. Ruben & Carla is the new meeting point to experience good food and wine, good music and to discover an eclectic and cosmopolitan crowd.
