I came here when I was on a weekend trip with my boyfriend, we were served quickly and the food also came quickly it was lovely! I did get a bit upset when no-one came over to us after taking our cups and plates to see if we wanted any more drinks or desserts. I was unsure whether I had... More

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!!

We stopped for a quick bite. The atmosphere was very cozy and relaxing. Nice tunes and perfect lighting (different vintage chandeliers and lamps). We had the classic burger with chips on the side. The Cranberryschorle was a great choice for beverage and the desserts were exquisite. The twin-looking waitresses were very polite and helpful. The whole experience was one I... More

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, but this one was so awful that I couldn't eat it up. It was like... More

My son and I stepped in for the first time from the street while wandering around. Their burgers and fries were amazing. Thank you for a wonderful meal. Great ambiance and wonderful friendly service.

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 choice as to drinks though..... But not expensive.

We had there dinner. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was very yummy. Not a wide beer selection but I guess it's part of this place "thing".

"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.

Staying in Mitte

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.
