The place looks really nice and service was excellent. Burgers were ok, for 15€ you expect more I guess. Water costs 5€...so we eat 2 normal burgers and 2 water: 40€. I was hungry afterwards, theres better places.

My first visit, I was not so convinced about the Ruben, but this time around it was better. I am a bit pampered by the sandwiches I get in LA. Service was ok, nice bread, alas not rye.

Excellent food, friendly staff. We arrived too early for our reservation and they were more than accomodating. We had the pastrami potato croquettes as appetizer- they were served with a mustard/sauerkraut that was amazing. I´m actually not a fan of mustard or sauerkraut, but this...More

Great food but worth booking as busy. Excellent atmosphere and many locals eating here. Very good on a Friday night.

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.
