The sandwiches here were good, and they didn't skimp on the pastrami, but as others have noted, the French Fries that we were served were somewhat soggy, not crisp like they should be. Wine by the glass was expensive; moreover, the portion size was 10...More

The menu is pretty limited but what they have is done well and reasonably priced. The Ruben sandwich is huge and large burger is 2 burgers - a happy surprise!

We were so disappointed when we had dinner here. The food and drinks was served all together even though we asked to first have cocktails and starter, and then burgers and wine. The burgers were almost cold and the fries were soft instead of crisp....More

After being introduced as an Italian fusion concept restaurant with experimental food, I have to admit this place disappointed a bit. The food was ok but average, and nowhere near to innovative and surprising. Otherwise a nice quiet place and the staff was friendly enough....More

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 The interior is a bit outdated, looks like...More

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.
