  1. Tours are approximately 2-3 hours in length and visit 2-4 establishments depending on group size.
  2. Private tours are available Tuesdays – Saturdays (inclusive); most of our restaurants are closed on Sundays and Monday but if you are only interested in these days do get in touch and we’ll see what we can do!
  3. We work with the restaurants to source the very best local food to suit the needs of your party. This is why we ask for a little bit of time to organize things – tickets need to be purchased at least one week in advance).
  4. Tours are bespoke, meaning we organize guides and restaurants. As such tickets are non-refundable and cannot be re-scheduled.
  5. To fit as much food in as possible, we carefully coordinate the timing of our tours with the establishments’ schedules. It is important to arrive on time for your group’s tapas tour, or you’ll miss out!
  6. We can customise the tour if there any dietary restrictions. Just let us know at the time of booking.
  7. Tours are never cancelled due to weather. Luckily, Barcelona benefits from a wonderful climate, so the weather is not usually an issue. Hoorah!

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.

What's the deal?

  • 3 hour tour, 3-4 stops (yeah!) 
  • Food galore (mmmm...) 
  • Beer, wine, vermut, etc. (uh oh!) 
  • A knowledgeable local guide (wahey!)

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."
