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...

Food and drinks were amazing We went out to get tapas the day before our food tour, and we thought we could skip it - we were wrong! The places Lorea took us were the BEST restaurants we went to on our trip. Highly recommend.

Money and precious time well spent! Our guide was genuine, funny, and so welcoming. We had tons of tapas and beverages all of which were amazing and authentic! Our guide discussed so, so much with us - the very next day we are hitting 3 of her locals only suggestions and feeling very impressed! This is money and precious time well spent!

Food, Fun, and a dash of history thrown in. Like having a fun friend show you all the best spots. And although none of us had food/allergy restrictions she made sure to inquire and was at the ready to ensure everyone had a great time with some delicious food.

Loved this Tapas Tour Maria was our guide and she was friendly, knowledgeable, knew how to lead a group and the others in our group were also fun and enjoyable to be with. There was a variety of dishes and drinks, all different and all mouthwatering. It was a really lovely evening, so thanks Maria, we went to places that we would never have found on our own!

One of our absolute favorite experiences It was like sitting down with an old friend who knows all of the good spots to eat. It was a great first night in Barcelona and helped us navigate the tapas scene in El Born and the Gothic Quarter for the remainder of our trip. Our teenage kids also thought this was one of their favorite things we did on our trip. Great experience all together.

All very easy & I was grateful they were so accommodating Maribel was our host and she provided great insight into their traditions and neighborhoods. None of the food and drink selections were ones I would have chosen on my own, which is what makes the food tour so special. I had a wonderful time and would go again. This process was all very easy and I was grateful they were so accommodating.

Highlight of our Barcelona visit We ate at three wonderful small restaurants and had a delicious variety of tapas. They were all unique places that we never would have found on our own. So glad we found this tour online- it was easy to book, and easy to find our guide in the Gothic quarter. So much fun- I highly recommend it!

Best Food Tour Lorea was fantastic, professional and fun! The sites chosen were all walkable and provided a glimpse into the Gothic and Jewish quarters. More importantly, the food and wine were wonderful. We are still talking about it to our friends and neighbors. Well worth the money!!

A must do for tapas experience My experience with Maribel was outstanding. She provided an excellent tasting at several fine local establishments giving our small group of strangers an evening with education about tapas and tasting the best, from wine to dessert. She was so inviting and personable. Walking pace was easy, food choices were delicious. Price point excellent. 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.
