The Barcelona Taste was founded in December 2009 to introduce curious locals and adventurous tourists alike to the culinary treats nestled within the labyrinth that is Barcelona. After years of exploring, sampling, and delighting in the local secrets, we decided we were ready to share our discoveries with other discerning palates wanting to experience a more authentic Barcelona. We are Barcelona’s first complete gastronomical tour built around the idea that there is no reason to just walk and talk about food when it’s possible to walk, talk, and eat it!
So, welcome! We look forward to tasting our way around Barcelona and Catalonia with you.
The gorgeous neighbourhood of Eixample is home to architectural gems including Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Our tour starts in Example Dreta (right) and we then walk our way into the Eixample Esquerra (left), passing by the gorgeous Casa Batlló, one of Gaudi’s exceptional works.
On the way we visit three food and drink establishments that we consider are among the best of the area (and the city!). You’ll enjoy a welcome cocktail at a very old and elegant Art Deco bar, followed by two restaurants where we’ll experience different ways of understanding tapas… the one thing both have in common is plenty of truly excellent food. But what will surprise you most is the quality and variety of the wine.
6.30pm – 10.00pm

What could you be eating on your Barcelona tapas tour?
An evening tapas tour with The Barcelona Taste is like dinner out with friends of a friend – at some of the best restaurants in town. Our tour groups are typically no larger than 6, meaning we can keep things intimate and discreetly visit the highest quality small food establishments… those most loved by locals.
You will visit three of the best restaurants and specialty food shops in Barcelona, where you get to eat plenty of food and your choice of top quality drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic).
You share a personal, relaxed evening with a local guide, who will leads you safely through Barcelona. Conversations will flow, be they about the neighbourhood, each dish that we order, Barcelona life, culture and history and any and everything else that comes up throughout the course of the night.
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.
