About this Evening Tapas Tour

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.

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, 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.

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 as a result we enjoyed some incredibly delicious and authentic dishes that we normally wouldn't have tried on our own. The restaurants she brought us to were fantastic. I can't wait to go back and take another one of their tapas/wine tours in one of the other neighborhoods!

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.

Extensive knowledge of Barcelona's food scene I must say that it was an exceptional experience that exceeded all expectations. The small group size was a significant advantage, as it created an intimate atmosphere & allowed for more personalized attention & interaction. We felt like we were exploring the city with a knowledgeable friend who was eager to introduce us to her favorite local spots. The tour was not just about food; it was an immersive cultural experience that left me with a deep appreciation for the city & its rich gastronomic traditions.

A must do in Barcelona Tito was amazing. Friendly and knowledgeable. And the food was to die for. Lots of it and the best quality. The whole tour was fun. I will dream of the beef cheeks for years...

A great lay of the land We went to 3 different tapas restaurants - all were slightly off the beaten path and all were excellent. Maribel explained all the foods as well as the neighborhoods that we walked through. We also learned some Spanish history. Maribel answered all our questions and gave great restaurant suggestions for our following days in Spain. I would suggest you do this tour on one of your first nights in Barcelona, as it gives you a great lay of the land if you've never visited before.

DON'T MISS THIS!!!! We went to 3, off the beaten path tapas restaurants - all had excellent food. I especially enjoyed the beef cheeks. Maribel did all of the food ordering, with respect to dietary restrictions. She answered all of our questions and gave us info and history of the neighborhoods we traversed. She was friendly and very professional. I would recommend doing this tour on one of your first nights in Barcelona, as it gives you a great lay of the land and references to other good places to eat and visit. Enjoy!

Phenomenol experience enjoying fine local food and drink favorites. Our guide Maribel was lovely company and arranged phenomenal tastings of traditional foods as well as some with a gourmet modern twist. The food was plentiful and varied and suited to our tastes. There was no shortage of matching local alcohol/wine as well. We had an intimate tour with just 4 of us, meeting 2 others for an enjoyable evening. If you can, do it early in your arrival as you will get an extensive list of other restaurants to try as well. Only wish we could stay long-term so we could try them all!

A wonderful evening We sampled delicious food and some local wines at each stop. Each of the stops on our tour was quaint and the dishes that were selected for us to try were delicious. We felt welcomed in each of the restaurants we visited and enjoyed the engaging conversation and information provided by our host, Tito. This small group tour felt like an evening with friends, old and new. Highly recommended!
