Poble-Sec: Sat 27 Apr 2024, 7.00 pm - 10.00 pm

Evening Tapas Tour

Poble-Sec is Barcelona’s old but vibrant performing arts district, a centrally located neighbourhood boasting elegant 19th-century architecture. Despite being so close to key landmarks of Barcelona, it doesn’t tend to be nearly as crowded or full of tourists as some other neighbourhoods.

We fell in love with Poble Sec because of the incredible culinary offering. The neighbourhood is a hotbed of young chefs running some of the most exciting restaurants in the city. This makes it the perfect setting for a tapas tour!

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...

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: Poble-Sec

Poble-Sec (Catalan for 'Dry village') is Barcelona’s old but vibrant performing arts district, a centrally located neighbourhood boasting elegant 19th-century architecture and the best hidden gem restaurants in town.

The neighbourhood has a rich history, having once been outside of the city’s walls and inhabited mainly by residents that couldn’t afford the higher prices for accommodation inside the walls. Nowadays it is known more for its ample offering of theatres and nightclubs, making it Barcelona’s top entertainment district.

Despite being so close to key landmarks of Barcelona, it doesn’t tend to be nearly as crowded or full of tourists as some other neighbourhoods. Plaça Espanya borders it to the west, the Ramblas or Boquería to the north and the port, museums and World Trade Center to the east. But here one can enjoy an evening here and see a “real” part of the city – an area much less inundated by tourists.

We fell in love with Poble Sec because of the incredible culinary offering it has had for the past few decades. The neighbourhood is a hotbed of young chefs running some of the most exciting restaurants in the city. This makes it the perfect setting for a tapas tour – the food is exceptional, with key traditional dishes offered with a little contemporary twist that go beyond the obvious, standard tapas.

Want to eat where the locals eat? See the real Barcelona and enjoy a more adventurous tapas offering? This is the tapas tour for you!

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!

Great food tour - would highly recommend to others visiting Barcelona Our tour had just two couples and the guide which was a perfect way of sliding into some great spots and feeling like we fit in, not like we were a giant distraction. Our guide was lovely and knowledgeable. She gave us good information about the history and culture of the area and even some home cooking tips!

Amazing tour Barcelona - with tapas! We landed in Barcelona and went on a tapas tour with Anna. It was excellent (more food than we could handle!). It was a great way to kick off the trip. Have someone order for us so we tried and tasted many great tapas. Our boys (14 and 12) loved it! I highly recommend booking a food tour with them - but make sure you are SUPER hungry!

Such a lovely experience We learned a lot about the culture and history of the area while tasting delicious local food and sipping on great drinks. I would recommend this to couples, groups of friends, or even solo travelers who want to learn more about the Spanish culture. The recommendations we received after the tour was also a great help for the rest of our trip.

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
