Riding a current trend in Barcelona, that of serving foreign cuisine in tapas style bites, Ziryab has already proved to be a very popular with the adventurous taste buds of the travel community. Flavours from the Middle Eastern world have been fused together with those from Catalonia and Spain and the restaurant's menu consists of delights like bacon-wrapped dates and grilled halloumi (Arab cheese) with Spanish serrano ham. Finger lickin' good! Meanwhile their range of dips are surely the best west of Baghdad, from the minty hummous to the spicy muhamarra. Finally there's a wine list the likes of which you won't find elsewhere in Barcelona, with choice Lebanese wines complementing a selection from Catalonia's Penedes region. If you're picking holes then you could say that Ziryab can feel a little cramped when full and the service is a trifle slow... but it's hard to blame the restaurant itself for becoming popular. Still undecided on dinner? Read on for more of Barcelona's eating out options.


Great place. Lebanese wines are a bit expensive and by the bottle only, but loved the dates wrapped in bacon, the dips and other finger food. Lamb casserole also very nice, although the meat was a little fatty. Good selection of beers. Nice change if you're bored of Spanish tapas!!!

Small and cramped with slow service are the negative points, but the main thing is the food which is great near eastern finger food. The crampedness does add to the atmosphere as well. Overall a great place for a casual meal. Good wines.

Ziryab has created a unique fusion concept for its tasty cuisine and the result has been some incredibly savoury dips.
Really friendly owners/staff. I recommend it if you're looking for a new twist on tapas.
