About this Lunchtime Tapas Tour

Want a taste of authentic Spanish and Catalan tapas and to see the tourist sites of Barcelona afterwards? Then this is the tour for you.

In this 2 hour lunch tour we’ll visit 2-3 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!). 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: 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.

First time in Barcelona?  These are the tapas tours for you!

    "If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The places we visited were non touristy, traditional and perfect. Each group of tapas was preceded by a traditional drink. The food was amazing and thoroughly explained."
