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...

Exceeded my expectations & was the highlight of our dining experience We booked it the first day we arrived so we could learn the customs and etiquette and if course sample a wide variety of food options. Tito was so friendly and helpful and everything was taken care of for you. We are so much food we were stuffed. And the best selections from each place. Highly recommended.

Just outstanding! We loved our tapas tour through the Gothic District with Maria. She was very attentive in advance to any dietary restrictions we might have, and everything she selected for us to try was just outstanding. A wonderful variety of flavors, followed by a stop for dessert tapas as well. It will remain a favorite memory of our visit to Barcelona - highly recommend!

The best food spots in town Allison was an amazing food tour guide! She was knowledgeable, passionate, and friendly. She shared her insights into the local cuisine. We learned a lot about the history and culture of food in the city, and we had a great time trying all the different dishes. We would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the city.

Fabulous evening We did the tour with Esther and 5 others. She told us about the Gothic quarter and took us to several small intimate tapas bars. We loved the food and the drinks. Wonderful to meet new friends and experience the hidden gems of Barcelona. Thanks Esther!

Great food and perfect introduction to the city! We booked this tour for our first night in Barcelona. It was a great introduction to the city. Maria was a wonderful host, and she shared interesting culinary and cultural details about the city. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant evening!

Best Barcelona dinning experience around! This was an amazing experience and one of the best cooking classes/culinary events I have ever experienced - Lorea and Jay are welcoming, gracious and kind. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who would like an an individualized, authentic, 'intimate' culinary introduction to Catalan gastronomy!!!

Highlight of our entire trip!!! Anna was so friendly and professional, sharing lots of her knowledge about Barcelona and Spain in general. We got to visit and eat at places we would never have known about, especially the little gourmet supplier shop where we ate the best sausages and olives. She sent us follow up recommendations that were wonderful, including the types of wines we enjoyed. I thought it was a little pricey before we went on the tour, but afterwards we knew it was totally worth it! I highly recommend this tour ❤️

Best night ever! We did the tour on our first night in Barcelona and it was the best night. Our guide was so great and picked places I know we would never have been able to find. The food, wine and company was superb!

Delicious afternoon off the beaten path in Eixample This was our first and finest meal in Barcelona. We were in a non-touristy part of Eixample and places we certainly would not have found on our own! The variety of tapas and beverages was perfect. All in all, if felt like we were sharing a meal with a new friend.

The range of the offerings was great! We really enjoyed it! Lorea was an excellent hostess and very knowledgeable. The food was excellent at all the spots that she took us to and they were far enough off the beaten path, that we would have never discovered them on our own. I highly recommend this tour and taking it early in your trip so you can enjoy other recommended places.

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.
