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.

    Wonderful food tour and guide We visited 3 different and amazing spots, and along the way, our lovely and knowledgeable tour guide Esther told us so many interesting things about Barcelona- culture, history, architecture, neighborhoods and events going on this weekend. She was very engaging and made sure everyone was having a good time.

    A quadruple thumbs up! Adored strolling the Gothic Quarter with the stunning Maribel, getting to make new friends with the 5 other folks on our tour, and tasting the most delicious tapas in 3 different locations - a warm & informative introduction to Catalonian cuisine & culture. I’ll never forget the pride on each of the proprietors’ faces as they brought plate after plate of amazing food.

    A great time! We did a tapas tour with Tito a few weeks ago and had a great time. The food he chose for us to sample was amazing and the restaurants he chose were great choices. And Tito was great, keeping the group entertained with information about the food and Barcelona in general!

    Amazing guide! All of the food we had was so good. I loved everything that we ate and drink and highly recommend. It’s best to do at the beginning of the trip so that you can get other recommendations of where to get equally delicious food.
    May 16, 2024
    Fabuloso! Our evening with Tito was extraordinary! He was informative, personable and a pleasure to spend time with. He took us to three tapas restaurants we would never have found on our own all of them culinary delights. Fabuloso! We would book with this company again and highly encourage you to do the same!

    Very highly recommend. We had the BEST time on this tour. Esther was a fantastic guide. She was very knowledgeable, not just about the food, but the history and sites of Barcelona as well. We visited 3 tapas venues, all were fantastic. I had the best grilled squid and burrata of my life! Very highly recommend. Thank you!!

    Walking Tapas Tour Anna was an excellent tour guide. Once we were seated at each restaurant she offered us different drinks that were popular with the locals. Once we had our drink of choice, she asked us for our likes and dislikes and ordered accordingly. It was a very special evening and a great way to spend our first night in Barcelona. We would highly recommend.

    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.
