About this Evening Tapas Tour

An evening tapas tour with The Barcelona Taste is like dinner out with friends of a friend - at 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 in Barcelona, where you get to eat plenty of food and a variety of top quality drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic).

You share a personal, relaxed evening with a local guide, who will lead 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.

About our tour location: The Gothic Quarter

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 be a bit of a tourist trap – particularly when it comes to food. But it doesn't have to be that way. In amongst (sadly) many tourist traps there are some truly divine family-run restaurants that preserve the best of Spanish and Catalan cuisine. 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, leaving you sated, jolly, and with a better understanding o where to go and what to order to make the most of your stay. 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 popular historic setting.

First time in Barcelona?  Looking for a premium, classic food tour? These are the tapas tours for you!

COVID-19: keeping you safe on our tapas tour

The safety of guests, guides, partners and the public is our primary concern. Because of this, we’ve developed new health and safety guidelines in accordance with WTO and World Travel and Tourism Council guidelines, and in line with Spanish and Catalan government requirements.

Please review these guidelines before booking and get in touch if you have any questions.

About The Barcelona Taste

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 let you experience all the great food Barcelona has to offer while side-stepping the crowds. 

We take you to restaurants and shops 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 strike no deals and ask for no discounts or commissions. This is how it must be done, with 100% respect for small, local business and delicious, quality food.

Many beautiful people have joined us on our food tours – and here are some of the lovely things they've said about the time they spent with us...

Perfect way to begin your trip This is a perfect beginning to any trip to Barcelona. Not only was the food, wine, and vermut marvelous but the guide gave us fascinating historical information during the walk. We also received excellent recommendations for eating well for the continuation of our trip. I can not recommend this food tour highly enough. We loved it.

Beyond our expectations The tapas tour was the perfect way to start our vacation in Barcelona. Maria's knowledge of the history and culture added to the experience and the food was the best we’d had so far in our two weeks of traveling Spain. We sampled every kind of dish as well as 3 different desserts and were stuffed at the end! We highly recommend this tour.

Tapas tour in Barcelona We met Esther and she gave us a great introduction to the tapas and of the history of Barcelona. She walked us to four different stops, where we had a large sampling of tapas and local wines, cava and vermouth. She was funny, informative, and caring to all our needs. I would highly recommend

Well done to this fantastic team! We took three Barcelona Taste food tours in a span of a week, all were excellent with great guides! The Gothic Quarter, Lunch Time Tapas and Poble Sec. All were different, amazing food and wine, guides were fun, well organized and provided great tips and insights for our visit. Highly recommend any and all of these tours!

Top quality It's been a few weeks since we left Barcelona and we started reflecting on what we loved most about the trip. The Barcelona Taste food tour is right on top, and we'll do it again when we go back to Barcelona. Restaurant and food choices were varied and all top quality. Our host was gracious as you would expect. But better than that, he was himself and a great dinner companion.

Great Food Tour! This food tour was the highlight of our visit to Barcelona. Lorea was a wonderful host, taking us to restaurants we would not have found on our own. We would very highly recommend this to truly experience authentic Barcelona tapas! Thank you Lorea for a great evening.

Great food and fun guide Ester was an amazing guide! The tour was a great combination of local history of the barrios and delicious food and drinks! We did this the first night we were in Barcelona and it was great to get oriented with the neighborhood and add other recommendations from Ester onto our list of restaurants to try while in town.

Highly recommended :) This was a fantastic food & drink tour. My wife and I enjoyed everything we had, but it was really our guide Tito who brought it all to life!

Perfect Afternoon Activity! Our guide Esther was great, very informative and personable. It was stress-free having her order for my wife and I at the places we went around to, trying things we otherwise would not have. It was a great afternoon experience and cannot recommend it more highly!

I foresee another tour with them in the future! This is our 3rd time doing the Barcelona Taste food tour and it has not disappointed yet! Anna gave some a personal informative tour not only of the food, but of the neighborhood as well. We didn't feel rushed or pushed to hurry off to another restaurant, she allowed us to enjoy what we tasted and then move on. I highly recommend Barcelona Taste.
