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...

Tapas Tour - Great Experience We went to spots in downtown area, progressively getting better tapas as we migrated. Also, \*must do\* because I had the best paella of my life - hard to find that on Google maps or Yelp searches!

Excellent company and lovely food!! We really enjoyed our tour of tapas in the Gothic Quarter! Maria was brilliant company and the food and drink was fantastic! We would definitely recommend and will be booking another of these tours next time we visit! Ideally I'd book this tour at the start of a trip as you get lots of other recommendations that you can use for the rest of your visit.

Great food, very informative and lots of fun! We really enjoyed our tour through Poble-sec! Our charming guide Lorea did a fantastic job of describing the Barcelona and Spanish way of life, introduced us to a lovely selection of tapas bars and took time to explain the various dishes we were eating. We thoroughly recommend doing the tour!

Everything about this tour was amazing Our wonderful guide Esther was great company and took us to places we just wouldn’t have found for ourselves, explaining everything along the way and providing a touch of local colour to the whole experience. Incredible food, great drinks and company. A fantastic experience all round.

My second tour with Barcelona Taste The tour was in the Gothic Quarter with Esther - she was fabulous, gave us interesting information about the area and brought us to different restaurants for wonderful food! Esther was very fun and everyone in our party loved the tour. I highly recommend!!

Incredibly delicious and authentic dishes We had an amazing tour around Eixample with Lorea, our super friendly & knowledgeable guide! She helped us get out of our comfort zone and we enjoyed some incredibly delicious and authentic dishes. The restaurants she brought us to were fantastic. I can't wait to go back and take another one of their tapas/wine tours!

We really enjoyed the tapas tour! All of the food was very good and it wasn’t “the usual” tapas. Everything we tried was new to us, except paella. And the paella was very good. We had more than enough food! Maria, our guide, was very knowledgeable and fun. Instead of having wine at every stop, we experienced vermouth and cava as well.

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.
