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 authentic tapas tour. Love the guide. Such a delightful tour of multiple small restaurants with Spanish tapas including traditional Catalan dishes. Our guide, Lorea, designed a very efficient tour at places we would not have found without her. Well worth it…

Favorite evening out! We dined at 3 different restaurants, each were specializing in certain flavors and parts of Spain. The couple we shared the evening with were wonderful too. The neighborhood we walked thru was lovely - so happy to see parts of Barcelona that weren't touristy. It will be a favorite memory for years to come.

An excellent food tour through the Gothic Quarter The restaurants we visited were perfect choices. Tito was an excellent guide! We brought our 15 and 18 year old sons on the tour and Tito did an amazing job of making sure they were included in the conversation. It was the highlight of our trip!

A very personal tour with fabulous food and wine. It felt like we were visiting an old friend! Maria was extremely knowledgeable. Glad we did this tour early in our trip as it helped us understand what was on the menu and how much to order. She gave us many tips on other places to try all over Barcelona for the rest of the trip. Absolutely the best thing we did all week!!! Highly recommend.

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!

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.
