Although just a few minutes away from the tourist traps of the Oranienburger strasse, Ruben and Carla is a world away in terms of ambience, cuisine and overall experience. The team running this place are the same people that put the Mozzarella bar on the...More

We had a business lunch here: fresh food, cool atmosphere, nice people (Chefs and owners are Italian, and this is a big plus!). Highly recommend! We will definitely come again.

Ruben and Carla has Italian waiters although the food they serve is divers. It has a nice terras (unfortunately full) but I was seated in the restaurant close by the open doors, great on this warm evening. The interior is a bit outdated, looks like...More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!!

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.
