Eixample: Wed 28 Feb 2024, 12.45 pm - 3.30 pm

Lunchtime Tapas Tour

Eixample is the beating heart of Barcelona and home to a dazzling number of architectural gems – including many of Gaudi's masterpieces (the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera are all to be found in the area).

Eixample is also, happily, home to some of the best food and drink establishments in Barcelona. Come join us us on a tour and taste the quality food for yourself!

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 Lunchtime Tapas Tour

Want a taste of authentic Spanish and Catalan tapas in between your visit to the tourist sites of the city? Then this is the tour for you.

During our lunch we’ll visit 3 carefully chosen establishments. You’ll have plenty to eat and drink but not so much that you can’t go on with your day (no siesta needed after it!). It’s perfect for those who prefer to make their main meal during the day, and works particularly well for families. Our tour groups are small, meaning we can go to the kinds of restaurants and eateries the locals love... because they have the best food.

You will taste a wide variety of the highest quality Spanish and Catalan tapas dishes, accompanied by one of our friendly guides who can tell you all about the history and gastronomy of our gorgeous city!

About our tour location: Eixample

The gorgeous neighbourhood of Eixample is Barcelona’s upmarket shopping and dining district. It is also home to architectural gems including Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera.

Our Eixample tour is situated between these popular architectural wonders of the city, including dozens of ornately decorated modernist apartment buildings. This makes it the perfect choice for a break between sightseeing stops.

But most importantly, you will visit food and drink establishments that we consider are among the best of the area (and the city!). Expect delicious drinks and fantastic food - an unparalleled experience of the city's culinary scene.

If you prefer daytime dining, are travelling with young ones, or have plans to see the city’s Modernist architectural masterpieces this is the tapas tour 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.

    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.
