“Cool place, average food”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

The atmosphere and location were great, but the food, I thought, could have had more flavor. We had the shrimp, ham, spinach, aioli, and cheese tapas to start. The spinach ball tasted overwhelmingly like cream cheese, the only spinach I got out of it was the color. The shrimp were good, lightly fried, and the ham was nice and thin. For our next course we shared a salad which was filled with veg and lettuce and quite large, so that was good. Finally we shared the fruit crepe. While there was a lot of fruit stuffed in the crepe it was all uncooked. I expected everything to be hot with perhaps a drizzle of the fruit juices over the top. The portion was large, but the flavor was a bit blah. Anyone can stuff some raw fruit in a crepe.
The house red wine was delicious, the service was great, I was just expecting more flavor in each dish.

“Good Tapas”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

Ate here on our first night in Berlin. It was busy but we managed to get in a table. Service was good and the food was very nice. Quite reasonably priced also. Would recommend.

“totally satisfied”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

Not exactly Spain, but the gambas al ajillo were excellent, and the pork with prunes was simply fabulous. Two rations, an olive tapa and a tortilla (very well done) completed the trick. Wine, bread, and a fabulous atmosphere were what we enjoyed in this excellent Berlinese restaurant.

“Very Good dinner!”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Just came back from Berlin, with my wife, grown children and son-in-law. Found Ruz on line, and walked right over from the nearby Circus Hotel. This is a small, plain neighborhood place, and one would not think that they could produce the number of delicious tapas selections that they turn out. Three of us dined here and had too many (portions were larger than we'd thought and the bread was superb and filling!) wonderful selections. Great informal place to dine.
