“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stopped here for drinks and snacks several times whilst in Berlin for a week.

The service was excellent. The waitress was very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. The bar was clean and nice surroundings in which to eat and drink. Outdoor seating is comfortable and Auguststrasse is an interesting street to pass time just watching.

The food we had was fresh and of good quality. Drinks were excellent and well priced.

Overall, fairly standard in what it is offering in this area but excels above surrounding bars in quality and service.

“Okay'ish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

It's one of our places we go when there's no better idea right now. The tapas are decent, we enjoy the fried potatoes, the fried spinach, the shrimps in garlic sauce, the fried pimientos and also the lamb in estrogen sauce - all yummy. However, the day the refrigerator was invented, those guys missed that memo - expect a lukewarm beer even when the place isn't packed. Also, if you reserve a table (we made that mistake once), expect to be seated next to the stairway which leads down to the rest rooms. Service tends to be okay, but with a depressed undertone in it.

“Stumbled in, stayed for dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We came across Ruz by chance; just somewhere on hand when we were ready to sit down with a beer and coffee for half an hour. We had a nice table in the window and the atmosphere seemed cosy and relaxed, so we ended up asking for the menu and choosing several tapas dishes, all of which were vegetarian (though there were plenty of meaty choices too).

The tortilla (despite one previous review!), potatoes, mushrooms, spinach balls and veg side dish were all excellent, and very generous portions, so we couldn't finish it all. The service was very friendly, and we ended up idling away a good few hours in the place. The bill for two, with huge amounts of food, house wine, beer and 2 x coffees each came to only just over 50 euros.

We were very happy with Ruz, and would definitely go again when in Berlin.

“A few great dishes but overall 'meh'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

It is a pretty popular place. some locals and some abroad college kids. A few really good dishes keep it on our regular hit list. The green peppers, the spinat kroketten, the spicey gambas, the lamb, and the fried potatoes are our favorites. Avoid the Tortillas, they are not that great and huge. I was expecting something like a quesedilla and it was more like a pizza with a weird taste to it. Also avoid the pflaunen in speckmantel - they are always undercooked and the flavors arent properly balanced because of it!

“Perfect lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

We were three women seeing the sites and galleries in the neighborhood and came across Restaurant Ruz. We went in because their outdoor advertising said Tapas. We wanted something light and they made us a varied tapas combination plate to share. We really enjoyed this and the attentive and accommodating service.
