Poble-Sec: Thu 30 May 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!

Wonderful food tour and guide We visited 3 different and amazing spots, and along the way, our lovely and knowledgeable tour guide Esther told us so many interesting things about Barcelona- culture, history, architecture, neighborhoods and events going on this weekend. She was very engaging and made sure everyone was having a good time.

A quadruple thumbs up! Adored strolling the Gothic Quarter with the stunning Maribel, getting to make new friends with the 5 other folks on our tour, and tasting the most delicious tapas in 3 different locations - a warm & informative introduction to Catalonian cuisine & culture. I’ll never forget the pride on each of the proprietors’ faces as they brought plate after plate of amazing food.

A great time! We did a tapas tour with Tito a few weeks ago and had a great time. The food he chose for us to sample was amazing and the restaurants he chose were great choices. And Tito was great, keeping the group entertained with information about the food and Barcelona in general!

Amazing guide! All of the food we had was so good. I loved everything that we ate and drink and highly recommend. It’s best to do at the beginning of the trip so that you can get other recommendations of where to get equally delicious food.

Fabuloso! Our evening with Tito was extraordinary! He was informative, personable and a pleasure to spend time with. He took us to three tapas restaurants we would never have found on our own all of them culinary delights. Fabuloso! We would book with this company again and highly encourage you to do the same!

Very highly recommend. We had the BEST time on this tour. Esther was a fantastic guide. She was very knowledgeable, not just about the food, but the history and sites of Barcelona as well. We visited 3 tapas venues, all were fantastic. I had the best grilled squid and burrata of my life! Very highly recommend. Thank you!!

Walking Tapas Tour Anna was an excellent tour guide. Once we were seated at each restaurant she offered us different drinks that were popular with the locals. Once we had our drink of choice, she asked us for our likes and dislikes and ordered accordingly. It was a very special evening and a great way to spend our first night in Barcelona. We would highly recommend.
