Eixample is full of stunning architecture and home to our lunchtime tapas tours

Eixample

Daytime tapas amongst the elegant Modernist masterpieces of the city

The gorgeous neighbourhood of Eixample is Barcelona’s upmarket shopping and dining district. It is also home to architectural gems including Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera.

Our Eixample tour is situated between these popular architectural wonders of the city, including dozens of ornately decorated modernist apartment buildings. This makes it the perfect choice for a break between sightseeing stops.

But most importantly, you will visit food and drink establishments that we consider are among the best of the area (and the city!). Expect delicious drinks and fantastic food - an unparalleled experience of the city's culinary scene.

If you prefer daytime dining, are travelling with young ones, or have plans to see the city’s Modernist architectural masterpieces this is the tapas tour for you!

What could you be eating on your Barcelona tapas tour?

The great thing about tapas is that there's always something for everyone. Whether you love meat, fish, vegetables – or all of the above – there's sure to be a delicious dish to devour. Here's some samples to whet your appetite...

Great experience Esther was a fantastic guide. She explained the history of the Poble Sec neighborhood and arranged delicious tapas at three different locations. She also explained details about all of the food and shared in some local customs. Food was delicious and I had a great time with Esther!

Will definitely do again! Had a wonderful, interesting, and quite flavorful experience. Our guide Noah was fantastic, personable, and shared a wealth of information about the food and the history of Barcelona. This was my first food tour ever and won't be my last. Will definitely do again when I go back to Barcelona.

Great food Great tour, lots of delicious food, lots of behind the scene knowledge of the city from the tour guide. She walked at our pace, took into consideration any dietary needs we may have had. Ensured we were satisfied with the food and service. We really recommend this tour

Wonderful Poble Sec food tour Had the most wonderful Poble Sec food tour. The menu items were hand chosen for our group & gave us such a great experience of some of the local dishes we would have never order ourselves, but now will! We laughed and had the best time and definitely ended with full bellies! Allison was inviting & warm & made a great experience even more superior.

The quality is top-notch So glad I did this tour - the food quality in the bar/restaurants was high! The small group setting also meant fun interactions with the other guests. Started with 2 places for savouries, and the last place being dessert. The drinks ordered were also great. It's not one of those experiences when you feel the need to go to McDonald's after.

Absolutely delicious food! My daughter and I had a MARVELOUS experience with the AMAZING Esther! Of course the 3 restaurants we visited were outstanding, but what we so appreciated is how she whetted our appetite for all things Barcelonan & Spanish. Back in the States I am taking Spanish and reading about the history of this beautiful country. We feel so fortunate!!!

A must for Barcelona This was a great little tour with an excellent guide in Noah - excellent grasp of the Gothic & El Born quarters. We enjoyed finding unique little restaurants with excellent food. Places that we wouldn't have ever stopped in on our own, but ended up returning to for a 2nd meal. Definitely a great way to enjoy an evening & feel less like a tourist.

The Barcelona Taste: because it's delicious

Barcelona is a major tourist destination – the number of guidebooks and websites devoted to the city is overwhelming! Which is why we started The Barcelona Taste ... to save you time so you can experience the best food Barcelona has to offer while side-stepping the crowds. 

We take you to small, local businesses offering delicious, top quality food restaurants on our scrumptious tours – because they’re great. We visit, we taste and then we visit again and taste again. Ad infinitum! That’s our research.

We don’t take a “pile ‘em high” approach with our guests. Our focus is on providing the best possible quality in everything we do. This includes limiting our tours to very small numbers, to give personal attention and feed everyone well.
