What sets our tasting apart is the harmony of regional bites paired with each glass, creating a symphony of flavors that can't be found in any typical Barcelona bodega. Our exclusive venue, tucked away in the annex of a cherished tavern known for the city's most authentic Southern Spanish tapas, adds an extra layer of charm to your 90-minute escapade.

After the formal tasting concludes, you're welcome to linger, indulge, and explore more culinary delights next door, where the buzz of Barcelona's local food scene comes alive.

About the experience 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 our experiences – the food and wines are exceptional, served up in a safe, central, authentic neighborhood.

COVID-19: keeping you safe on our experiences

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.

    A delicious, all-in-one Tour! A great tour that covered everything. At the carefully selected restaurants, Esther explained not only the food & drink, but also their significance. I almost forgot to tell you everything was delicious and ample. A can't miss tour. An added bonus - she sent us an email with her Barcelona recommendations - worth the price of another tour.

    Fantastic! I would 1000xs recommend! The food and wine were both plentiful and delicious! My food preferences were even accommodated so able to enjoy with husband who eats everything. Our guide was personable/friendly and a wealth of knowledge, we enjoyed her if hanging out with new friend! Let me're in a smaller group so experience is definitely more intimate.

    We highly recommend this tour The experience our group had was one of the highlights of our trip. We had a wonderful dining experience at 3 exceptional restaurants, and Allison was as delightful, charming & informative as she could be. She was extremely personable & blended the perfect mix of history, knowledge of the cuisine and area we visited, with great humor & friendliness.

    The best food...such a fun way to experience Barcelona This was so much fun! The three places that our guide took us to had absolutely fabulous food. In fact, I went back the next night to the restaurant where we had dessert because I wanted to try their main menu foods. Our guide really knew both the history of the area we walked through AND all about the food options.

    An amazing experience Esther provided us an amazing experience taking us to places we would have never found on our own. The food was incredible as was her company. Highly recommend taking her tour to anyone wanting to find high quality local food and learning a little history of Barcelona.

    Highly recommend Loved our Barcelona Taste Food Tour with Anna. She was super knowledgeable about the food, vermouth (!) and culture of the city. She ordered delicious tapas for our group at three different restaurants in the Poble Sec neighborhood. After our tour and during the rest of our stay we felt confident about what to order! Highly recommend.

    I’d highly recommend this tour Took this food tour on our first night in Barcelona. There were 6 in our group, all for the first time in Spain. We made 3 stops and were able to taste all the things that I’d read about - including vermouth, patatas bravas, tortilla espanola, croquetas & more. The food was excellent & we had a great ongoing conversation with Allison, our guide.

We were all so happy and could not have asked for a better meal, experience and evening! I would highly suggest if you plan to have a Food Tour/Experience while in Barcelona - this is the one!

    The Barcelona Taste: because it's delicious

    Barcelona is a major tourist destination – the number of guidebooks and websites devoted to the city is overwhelming! Which is why we started The Barcelona Taste ... to save you time so you can experience the best food Barcelona has to offer while side-stepping the crowds. 

    We take you to small, local businesses offering delicious, top quality food restaurants on our scrumptious tours – because they’re great. We visit, we taste and then we visit again and taste again. Ad infinitum! That’s our research.

    We don’t take a “pile ‘em high” approach with our guests. Our focus is on providing the best possible quality in everything we do. This includes limiting our tours to very small numbers, to give personal attention and feed everyone well.
