Eclectic Mediterranean Cuisine

Zatar is a family-owned restaurant located in the theater arts district of downtown Berkeley, one block from the UC Berkeley campus. Zatar was voted best Mediterranean Restaurant and Best Middle Eastern Restaurant for 2014 by the Bay Area A List

We use only naturally-raised meats, organic milk and eggs for our house-made yogurt and pastries; and hand-selected, organic fruits, herbs and vegetables – many harvested daily from our own organic garden. We compost all raw kitchen scraps for our organic garden and vegetarian leftovers are fed to our laying hens.

Join us for Happy Hour at Zatar!

Attention all Happy People! Come share the joy with Pomegranate Sangria, Mint Lemonade, Warm Lamb Dolmas, Mezza Samplers and more of what makes you happy. Every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 5 pm - 6 pm!
