Description: "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.

“Best burger I've had in years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We had such a lovely dinner at Ruben & Carla. The restaurant wasn't busy when we had our early dinner at 6pm. No reservation was made and we just walked in. We were given free veggie sticks and a dip which was nice and crispy. We ordered the Tagliata and Burger and we extremely impressed with how well marinated the meat was. Small handcut fries were a little on the greasy side but the amazing burger made up for it. The desserts were simply divine. We had Tiramisu and homemade lemon tart. Gorgeous! Would definitely go back to visit this place again when we're next in Berlin. Very friendly staff as well!

“A romantic evening at Ruben & Carla”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

We heard about Ruben & Carla from friends and decided to go try it out ourselves. To make a long story short: we had a very nice evening, nice atmosphere, good wine and very friendly staff! And, last but not least, an extraordinary meet dinner. We'll definitely be back again and again and again...

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

We had our best meal in Berlin at Ruben & Carla. My wife's steak was one of the best she had in the last few years, and the hamburger I had was incredibly tasty and unique. Don't miss the awesome chocolate cake for desert.

We rent to Ruben & Carla based on a local recommendation and were not disappointed. The food and service were brilliant and there was a great atmosphere.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Great atmosphere and great food. Could have had some more drinks to offer, but that is just a little thing in all.
