Poble-Sec: Sat 13 Jul 2024, 6.45 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!

    Great experience Esther was a fantastic guide. She explained the history of the Poble Sec neighborhood and arranged delicious tapas at three different locations. She also explained details about all of the food and shared in some local customs. Food was delicious and I had a great time with Esther!

    Will definitely do again! Had a wonderful, interesting, and quite flavorful experience. Our guide Noah was fantastic, personable, and shared a wealth of information about the food and the history of Barcelona. This was my first food tour ever and won't be my last. Will definitely do again when I go back to Barcelona.

    Wonderful Poble Sec food tour Had the most wonderful Poble Sec food tour. The menu items were hand chosen for our group & gave us such a great experience of some of the local dishes we would have never order ourselves, but now will! We laughed and had the best time and definitely ended with full bellies! Allison was inviting & warm & made a great experience even more superior.

    The quality is top-notch So glad I did this tour - the food quality in the bar/restaurants was high! The small group setting also meant fun interactions with the other guests. Started with 2 places for savouries, and the last place being dessert. The drinks ordered were also great. It's not one of those experiences when you feel the need to go to McDonald's after.

    Absolutely delicious food! My daughter and I had a MARVELOUS experience with the AMAZING Esther! Of course the 3 restaurants we visited were outstanding, but what we so appreciated is how she whetted our appetite for all things Barcelonan & Spanish. Back in the States I am taking Spanish and reading about the history of this beautiful country. We feel so fortunate!!!

    A must for Barcelona This was a great little tour with an excellent guide in Noah - excellent grasp of the Gothic & El Born quarters. We enjoyed finding unique little restaurants with excellent food. Places that we wouldn't have ever stopped in on our own, but ended up returning to for a 2nd meal. Definitely a great way to enjoy an evening & feel less like a tourist.
