Restaurant details

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. You can try a fruit-flavoured water pipe, the hubby bubbly or Shisha - with the available flavours of apple, mint, grape, banana, melon, strawberry... And lots more flavours. You can also try it with a shot of anis in the water or slices of lemon to make it more refreshing, and countless other options and combinations to make yours a fun experience. Ziryab is a great place to go before going out to dinner, or perhaps after your meal! It's open late, has great music and a great vibe, is perfect for couples on a romantic date or for groups, and don't forget to check out the sister restaurant, Ziryab Tapas and Wines on Carrer dels Ases No 16, just a 4 minute walk away!

What a find! After dismissing several restaurants we were invited into this one. A little off the beaten track. It's small, has friendly staff and the good is wonderful. We decided to take a risk with the surprise meal (selection of tapas and dips with soup and dessert) and it paid off. The food was amazing.
The prices are reasonable.
It was an intimate, cute and perhaps even romantic venue.
Would definitely go back there.

Tucked away in the streets of El Born, is this wonderful restaurant. I spent a month in Barcelona and even though I try to diversify, I must have spent at least two night a week at Ziryab. The food is an amazing fusion of Middle Eastern and Spanish plates, the drinks are delicious and generous, and the staff is super friendly. The atmosphere is very cozy and there are great musicians playing several nights a week. They even have Hookahs. In short it was by far my favorite place in the city, and I strongly recommend dedicating an evening to it.

Hi there Misha! Your profile says New York - and considering New York is full of 1001 amazingly amazing eateries its very humbling and touching that you enjoyed Ziryab. Its a bit smaller-scale than many American places probably are, but I do agree it's a special place and hope that people find it cosy and cute. Thank you for hanging out there and we hope to see you again!

We decided to head out into the city on our last evening of our trip. I had browsed tripadisor for local restaurants and too my suprise there were plenty of great looking places. This was just one of them. However there was something special about it. It was all about the idea of following the candles.. and instantly when you saw the inside I could tell it was special.

It had a warm inviting atmosphere, a cosy little bar at the front and lots of people eating tapas. We thought it was very romantic and just fell in love with the idea of trying whatever the waitress suggested as we were fairly open. We went for a 3 dip and 3 tapas menu, and had extra pittas/bread. We also had a caramalised onion fish dish and some chicken pastries.. I forget the name but it was truly INCREDIBLE. Loved it. It was so tasty and went down well with the Sangria which was poured and made in front of us freshly.

The staff were attentive and happy and we couldn't say anything nicer about how they made us feel at home and very well attended.

Romantic & a foodies haven! A little secret hidden away in the realms of El Born/Jaume. I really recommend going here!! One of the best restaurants in Barcelona!

Hi Ben, what a nice review! Its really touched us. I'm so glad you followed the candles and found what you were looking for. I know it's a small place and sometimes people go expecting something much bigger, but I'm really happy that you loved all the food dishes we make and that it was romantic for you… bring all your foodie friends and do some tasting for us so we can get some great feedback from people who know and care, could be fun!
Thanks again and come see us soon.

Run by a charming woman, this place is tastefully done up and located in one of the bylanes of El Born. Not the easiest to fid but worth the effort. The menu is limited with a range of tapas and some daily specials. The tapas was finger licking good and the main was fresh and tasty as well. What works for this place is the unusual food, a great host and a beautiful romantic yet casual ambience.
