Eat your way through Barri Gotic on this Barcelona tapas tour. Discover hidden local food establishments – and enjoy top quality food in the old city.
An evening tapas tour with The Barcelona Taste is like dinner out with friends of a friend - at some of the best restaurants in town. Our tour groups are typically no larger than 6, meaning we can keep things intimate and discreetly visit the highest quality small food establishments... those most loved by locals.
You will visit three of the best restaurants and specialty food shops in Barcelona, where you get to eat plenty of food and your choice of top quality drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic).
You share a personal, relaxed evening with a local guide, who will leads you safely through Barcelona. Conversations will flow, be they about the neighbourhood, each dish that we order, Barcelona life, culture and history and any and everything else that comes up throughout the course of the night.
Barcelona’s famous Gothic Quarter is, rightly, one of the highlights of any trip to Barcelona. Walking through the ancient roads of the Ciutat Vella (old city) takes you past Roman walls, alongside cathedrals, through precious plazas – you can feel the history oozing from every brick.
However "the Gótico" can, at times, be a bit of a tourist trap – particularly when it comes to food. But it doesn't have to be that way. In amongst the restaurants catering to mass tourism there are some small hidden gem restaurants that cater mainly to locals. The food here is as good as any you'll get in Barcelona. You just have to know how to find them - and that is where we can help.
Our tapas tour of the Gothic Quarter will take you to a number of small top quality restaurants and food establishments, leaving you sated, jolly, and with a better understanding of local Catalan and national Spanish cuisine. The Barcelona Taste launched in 2009 with food tours of the Barri Gotic and these tours are therefore our first love. They are a wonderful traditional option in Barcelona’s most historic setting.
