Barcelona Taste Food Tour, Gótico // Wednesday, 20 November

7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Barri Gotic Tapas Tour takes you through Barcelona’s famous Gothic Quarter, in the Ciutat Vella (old city) – past Roman walls, alongside cathedrals, through precious plazas and, most importantly, in-and-out of small local restaurants that will leave 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 Gótico and these tours are therefore our first love. They are a wonderful traditional option in Barcelona’s most historic setting. 

First time in Barcelona?  This is the one for you!

This is not a large historical walking tour with only a snack to look forward to at the end.

Our tour groups are typically no larger than 6; meaning we can discreetly visit small food establishments loved by locals. The venues we visit range from high-quality specialty shops to home-style tapas restaurants, each one with its own scrumptious specialties for you to taste. We promise you won’t go hungry.

We want the experience to be like dinner out with a friend of a friend. Our guide will safely lead you through Barcelona and share a personal, relaxed evening with your and your group. Conversations will flow, and your guide will happily chat about the neighbourhood, each dish that we order, and any and everything else that comes up throughout the course of the night – be it about Barcelona life, culture and history.

Our tapas tours are great value for money: lots of food, many tapas dishes, quality wine and some extra special The Barcelona Taste goodies. 

  1. Our 3 hour tapas tours are only for small groups, meaning you get to see places the big groups can’t go.
  2. You get personal attention and security thanks to our friendly and knowledgeable guides.
  3. You are taken to 3 restaurants and specialty shops where you get to eat plenty of food and your choice of top quality drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic).
  4. You’ll listen to loads of culinary anecdotes along with a bit of history.
  5. You’ll also get personalised recommendations for great Barcelona restaurants, cafés and shops based on your interests or tastes.

The Barcelona Taste only operates in…Barcelona! It’s our city and we want to show you all it has to offer.

We take you to restaurants and other venues on our scrumptious tours, because they’re great. We visit, we taste and then we visit and taste again. Ad infinitum! That’s our research.

We only include spots we find tasty and charming and think you will too. We strike no deals and ask for no discounts or commissions.

This is how it must be done, with 100% respect for small, local business and delicious, quality food.

Our evening with The Barcelona Taste was fantastic! The Gothic Quarter tour is for anyone who wants good food, good drinks, and good company. Tito, our guide, was amazing. He made the night one to remember! His knowledge of the food, the Gothic Quarter, and Barcelona were outstanding. It’s definitely a must while in Barcelona!

"If I could give this tour more than 5 stars I would. The three places we visited were non touristy, traditional and perfect."

Can’t begin to tell you what a wonderful evening we had... It was an adventure in food we would never have taken on our own. Not only was the food experience fabulous, we learned so much about the culture."
