Description: Note that the restaurant is now located at Carrer dels Ases (see other listing). The bar is at Carrer de Grunyi and is a wonderful cocktail and Shisha Bar, where you can try some delicious cocktails - both classics and our own special blends... And lay back and enjoy the relaxation. There are some small snacks such as olives, cheese bites, flavoured dips with pitta or quality cheese and ham platters.

Delightful tiny wine/tapas bar with an African twist to the tapas - delicious - musicians in the background, excellent but small local wine list and helpful, efficient, english speaking, friendly staff. We went there twice during our week in Barcelona, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it

It's fantastic place to eat and drink with great atmosphere, the service was highly professional and very friendly. The Mojito drinks was one of the best ever, the tapas food was absolutely delicious. Great wine list! We will be back again on the 27th September, can we book a table?

...and you will find a gem. Ziryab tapas bar is not your usual spanish tapas bar, fusion of where East meets Catalan and you will not be disappointed with the selection of unique tapas on offer.
Selection of tapas were gorgeous and mouth watering, so good that we needed recommendations from friendly staff, we opted for halloumi tapas (cheese wrapped in bacon), dates wrapped in ham, patatas bravas (baked chips) completed with spicy sauce. After eating them, there was more, warm pitta breads with selection of exotic dips (spicy muhammara, babaghanoush, goat cheese with leek) accompanied by delicious house Catalan wine, Llebre red wine. Atmosphere was cosy and relaxing, so laid back that you will find yourself talking to another diners, enjoying arabic and catalan music. My partner and I had room in our stomach for desserts, we had the baklawa pastries (Now folks, I am not one for desserts, but this is definitely my personal favourite sweets).
The co-owner of Ziryab, Emlyn, the charming Belgian bartender for the night, will make sure you will not end your night with just a tapas and glasses of red. He's the man of Barcelona making this much raved Mojito.
Visit Ziryab, try out this magical tapas bar, I know I will be back.

We first discovered Ziryab last year on a short trip to Barcelona. We were meeting some friends from New Zealand for a few days there and took them to Ziryab. It was as good as ever, and the team at the bar make you so welcome. We came back the following night for a meal which was excellent and so different from tapas we had had before. The live music was great, and we can't wait to go back again! Don't miss it- it is small but cosy and a brilliant night out.

My friend and I happened to be randomly walking down a side street in Barcelona looking for somewhere to chill out and grab tapas and we saw Ziryab. Quirky and cool we thought; we went in and were taken aback by how friendly and attentive the staff were.

The service was quick and the tapas was delicious. We sat in the lounge upstairs for two hours talking to one of the bar staff about his life in Barcelona. Very interesting fellow.

Next time I go to Barcelona I will definitely be going back to this bar, it offers something different!
