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.

We passed by that area and looked at the trip advisor recommendations. Good reviews were written for this place so we went in and tried it. Beer was lovely. The steak was very good and the burgers were small but tasty. Our kids ordered an extra one because they loved them so much! The chips were great too, they were very skinny though. The Spanish manager was very helpful and charming. He made us so welcome. We went back with some friends, and it was a shame that he wasn't working that night. We will definitely go back again next time we visit Berlin.

Thats about it.

Had to walt very long in an allmost empty place. Pastrami Sandwich with very little Pastrami hardly enough kraut with hardcrusted bread for 14 Euros is even in this Tourist Area a bit strong. The tagliata did not look cut (tagliato) but like from a skewer. Decoration 0, nothing like on the Website. Thats the kind of quality wich made the crowd move to Neukölln

Went with some friends for a late lunch, so the place wasn't very crowded. I had a spanish hamburger, but also tried the classic burger, and they were both really good! Kind of pricey, for 15 euros (it comes with fries), and I wouldn't go there that often, but if your budget allows it, you should try it, the burger was tasty.
I also enjoyed the look and feel of the place, which looks rather like a pub than like a restaurant, with low lights and a large bar. The best part was the spanish waiter, who was really awesome, he speaks English and German as well, and has an awesome sense of humor!
Would recommend :)

We stopped for a quick lunch having to go to airport rather fast. Steak was super, we took one tagliatta and one entrecote. Very tasty meat, juicy, well cooked.
As dessert a very good tiramisu ( in a glass). Coffee, not the best, but honestly most our trials for good coffee in Berlin failed.
I highly recommend it for an excellent steak ( and we love steak). Reminded me of Brazil steaks. Go for very good food ( meat) and friendly service ( guys speaking english, italian, spanish, german) at reasonable prices for the quality.
If you are rather looking for fancy & romantic, probably try another place.
Is clean, mostly rustic style, wooden shared tables.
Best steak in months!
