We have all tried to find “the” place to eat—where the locals go, yet undiscovered by the tourists, where it’s possible to order like the locals and enjoy a delicious meal that it would be nearly impossible to discover on your own. This sensation of being away from home and yet a part of the local scene is what our “TAPAS LOVER Tour” is all about.

The Food Lover Tour, as the name suggests, is first and foremost a tour created for lovers of good food—‘foodies’ wishing to explore the local cuisine who want to enjoy their stay in Barcelona while having fun and avoiding the typical tourist traps. Where the locals go, we go! This tapas tour is a very laid back experience with a few stops including a gastronomic dinner in the local and most loved areas in Barcelona. You’d like to know where we go and what we eat? Come and join us on the Tapas Lover Tour.

We partner with a very small group of tapas restaurants that we believe are serving the best tapas—hot and cold appetizers and snacks—in Barcelona. On this tour, we will enjoy exclusive visits to bodegas, taverns and restaurants that offer sensational traditional foods and wines popular with the local community.

Local Experience Guaranteed, Including a Gastronomic Dinner

The first stop takes place in a local “after hour bar/restaurant” very well-known by the people of Barcelona for its good atmosphere; this is where we will start our tour with a few appetizers and drinks. Here, we’ll familiarize you with the basics of our culture’s approach to dining. 

At our second stop we’ll continue enjoying appetizers, but these will be quite different from our first stop. We’ll taste succulent, heartier tapas paired with typical drinks that form the identity of our Spanish and Catalan culture and are very appreciated among the locals.

The final tapas experience is a proper gastronomic and gourmet dinner. The Food Lover Tour has been granted access to some of the “most coveted” and “must see” restaurants in town. Sit down, relax and enjoy a true culinary adventure for foodies, including the best fresh local foods, seasonal meals, wine pairings and great company. Time to enjoy! Welcome to Barcelona and welcome to the Tapas Lover Tour!

    This is a great night out in Barcelona, taking you to three–non-touristy–tapas spots in the lovely Eixample District. Although you’ll visit fewer locations than the typical food tour, you’ll sample plenty of different items. We counted at least 18 in all. Some are served family-style and some are individual. At each restaurant, you’ll sit with your tour group around a table, so there’s no crowding around a bar and plenty of rest for your feet! There’s free-flowing wine or vermouth at each stop, and the tapas varied from seafood to traditional items to very creative “gastronomic” offerings at the final stop. Have your camera ready, because some of those will surprise you! Our guide provided some background on the tapas tradition, but at times it was difficult to hear her in a noisy restaurant if we weren’t seated nearby. So, expect a great introduction to the range of tapas in Barcelona, but if you want a bit more info on specific dishes, the restaurants or their owners, you may be a bit disappointed. Would we do the tour again? Absolutely! We also appreciated the comprehensive food and restaurant tips the company emailed to us after the tour.
