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...

Expertly kick started our immersion into customary Spanish cuisine & drink We were on a food tour with Lorea! We shared several delicious tapas entrees preceded by glasses of vermouth. We kept rolling from there! Lorea is also a tremendous resource in terms of her knowledge of the total BCN food scene. Perfect way to start our first (and definitely not last) trip to Spain!

Great food tour - would highly recommend to others visiting Barcelona Our tour had just two couples and the guide which was a perfect way of sliding into some great spots and feeling like we fit in, not like we were a giant distraction. Our guide was lovely and knowledgeable. She gave us good information about the history and culture of the area and even some home cooking tips!

Amazing tour Barcelona - with tapas! We landed in Barcelona and went on a tapas tour with Anna. It was excellent (more food than we could handle!). It was a great way to kick off the trip. Have someone order for us so we tried and tasted many great tapas. Our boys (14 and 12) loved it! I highly recommend booking a food tour with them - but make sure you are SUPER hungry!

Such a lovely experience We learned a lot about the culture and history of the area while tasting delicious local food and sipping on great drinks. I would recommend this to couples, groups of friends, or even solo travelers who want to learn more about the Spanish culture. The recommendations we received after the tour was also a great help for the rest of our trip.

Perfect way to begin your trip This is a perfect beginning to any trip to Barcelona. Not only was the food, wine, and vermut marvelous but the guide gave us fascinating historical information during the walk. We also received excellent recommendations for eating well for the continuation of our trip. I can not recommend this food tour highly enough. We loved it.

Beyond our expectations The tapas tour was the perfect way to start our vacation in Barcelona. Maria's knowledge of the history and culture added to the experience and the food was the best we’d had so far in our two weeks of traveling Spain. We sampled every kind of dish as well as 3 different desserts and were stuffed at the end! We highly recommend this tour.

Tapas tour in Barcelona We met Esther and she gave us a great introduction to the tapas and of the history of Barcelona. She walked us to four different stops, where we had a large sampling of tapas and local wines, cava and vermouth. She was funny, informative, and caring to all our needs. I would highly recommend

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.
