Description: This little gem of a tapas and wine bar is a real find, right in the heart of Barcelona's old city. Located in a charming old winding street in the vibrant Born neighbourhood, Ziryab serves its fantastic fusion brunch from 12pm - 4pm on Saturdays & Sundays with bossa nova guitar music (beautiful way to spend an afternoon... Spiced tea or pink minty Gin Tonic in hand!) And opens evenings for tapas from 7pm every day. Ziryab makes fusion tapas food that blends traditional Catalan and local tapas dishes with fresh spices and herbs from the Middle East, producing original and unique flavours! All home-made, all fresh and with wonderful tastes. Brunch dishes are tasty, big quantities and great prices! Check out on Ziryab's Facebook page which guitar music events are going on, or wine tasting sessions and Arabian nights story-telling evenings (send an email to reserve wine tasting sessions for your group!) Or just come to kick back, soak in the atmosphere and relaxing music and the excellent selection of Catalan and Arab wines!

We discovered "Ziryab" by chance while making our way back from Santa Maria del Mar. It's a little bit hidden due to its location in an alley but we are still happy that we went off the track because the food was really good. We tried some tapas with bread and dips and baklava as dessert. Service was nice and... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant - sometimes when I'm in Spain I get tired of tapas, but I always make a point of having them at least once during my stay. This was the perfect choice for my tapas - the portions were very decent, and the staff were more than happy to explain or tell you information about... More

Great fusing of two wonderful cuisines. Service very helpful and friendly. Is popular so our recommendation would be to eat earlier than the locals.

My friend and I came here just to smoke hookah and drink beer. I'm only judging the Hookah because I didn't eat there. The hookah was not their strongest side. Me as a Hookah smoker didn't like it because it hadn't a good tobacco and charcoal. But a new Hookah smoker will like it. Otherwise, the service was amazing and... More

Hola hola! Thanks for this feedback! We are developing more the shisha side of Ziryab - just got a shipment of Sahara Smoke hookahs and they are beautiful :) In Barcelona it is generally difficult to have real BBQ coal (which is the best for shishas) in a regular restaurant, so that continues to be a challenge. But the special... More

In Barcelona to celebrate our wedding anniversary and with formal restaurants booked on other evenings we were looking for something different and found it in Ziryab in the Born district.

We were looking for a nice tapas bar in Barcelona, and as we were not familiar with the quality of the restaurants, we relied on the ratings on Tripadvisor. This tapas bar is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Barcelona (by ranking) but honestly, I don't know, why. I mean, the service is good, the atmosphere of... More

Dear Hun Belgium, many thanks for this feedback, we really appreciate all feedback from customers! We are just a small tapas bar - sometimes we need to remind people this too. We are not a gourmet restaurant, and sometimes small tapas bars get up into the higher rankings because they have something different. We work a lot on our service... More
