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...

Wonderful food tour and guide We visited 3 different and amazing spots, and along the way, our lovely and knowledgeable tour guide Esther told us so many interesting things about Barcelona- culture, history, architecture, neighborhoods and events going on this weekend. She was very engaging and made sure everyone was having a good time.

A quadruple thumbs up! Adored strolling the Gothic Quarter with the stunning Maribel, getting to make new friends with the 5 other folks on our tour, and tasting the most delicious tapas in 3 different locations - a warm & informative introduction to Catalonian cuisine & culture. I’ll never forget the pride on each of the proprietors’ faces as they brought plate after plate of amazing food.

A great time! We did a tapas tour with Tito a few weeks ago and had a great time. The food he chose for us to sample was amazing and the restaurants he chose were great choices. And Tito was great, keeping the group entertained with information about the food and Barcelona in general!

Amazing guide! All of the food we had was so good. I loved everything that we ate and drink and highly recommend. It’s best to do at the beginning of the trip so that you can get other recommendations of where to get equally delicious food.

Fabuloso! Our evening with Tito was extraordinary! He was informative, personable and a pleasure to spend time with. He took us to three tapas restaurants we would never have found on our own all of them culinary delights. Fabuloso! We would book with this company again and highly encourage you to do the same!

Very highly recommend. We had the BEST time on this tour. Esther was a fantastic guide. She was very knowledgeable, not just about the food, but the history and sites of Barcelona as well. We visited 3 tapas venues, all were fantastic. I had the best grilled squid and burrata of my life! Very highly recommend. Thank you!!

Walking Tapas Tour Anna was an excellent tour guide. Once we were seated at each restaurant she offered us different drinks that were popular with the locals. Once we had our drink of choice, she asked us for our likes and dislikes and ordered accordingly. It was a very special evening and a great way to spend our first night in Barcelona. We would highly recommend.

Everyone should make this tour a priority! This is one of the best tours I've ever had the pleasure of attending! The food was over the top delicious. Unbelievably good and Lorea very informative and fun.

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.
