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!

I booked this table for a small hen party and we loved it. Food is so good, sangria was absolutely amazing, but loved especially the candlelit coziness, the atmosphere, and how welcome everyone made us, staff are so so nice. Such friendly people. I would recommend in a heartbeat. Go and enjoy a lovely evening.

There is a first time for everything... Not happy at all to say: what is the Trip Advisor hypy all about?! I feel let down by Trip Advisor reviewers. We had the higly over prized set Tapas menu for 16 EUR per person, all the dips were bland and no developed taste, the cheese dishes were OK and for the... More

It is a very cosy place, the service is friendly and informal. No matter where you are from and which languages you and the workers speak, there is communication. Eventually with hands and feet, which gives hilarious moments too, good for the sphere! The food is excellent if you are not picky and let them to compose your meals. It... More

We came here based on the good reviews on trip advisor. We did not have a booking but arrived at about 8pm, and not a moment too soon as about half an hour later many people were getting turned away as they were full, so if you really want to come here make a reservation! The food was delicious, we... More

Thanks so much for this! Glad the birthday celebration went well (congratulations!) and good tip for arriving early - later on it can get quite full, so the earlier the better...we have a selection of Lebanese wines and are trying to get more in too, so come back soon to try the new ones! Hope to see you again... More

I tried to cram it all in with just the headline. We had just three nights in the city, the first was a walking tour, the last we would eat at the hotel. For the middle night we checked here at TripAdvisor and found Ziryab, seemingly very highly-rated. We did a quick recce during the day and located it down... More

Chose this restaurant based on the other positive reviews via tripadvisor. My husband and I like to make an effort on the last night of holidays and go somewhere special for dinner - very glad that I picked this. Found it quite easy to find - it's just off a little alleyway near Jaume I metro station. The restaurant is... More

Susan! So glad to have made your taste buds water, thank you for such a beautiful review of Ziryab! Our cuisine is simple but we import spices and ingredients from far off places and try to innovate a bit with the flavours, so I'm really happy to hear from people that they enjoy these tastes, thank you!

It's tiny inside but so cosy. Decor is cool and the staff attentive. There were 5 of us so Had a little bit of everything. The... More

Great tapas, has a few standard dishes but most of them have an middle eastern element which makes them a little different. Went on two different nights and ate a large proportion of menu and the whole family enjoyed what we had. Leave room for desert, we had chocolate and pistachio cake one night which was particularly enjoyable. Staff also... More
