If you’re looking to go beyond classic tapas and discover the finest Catalan gastronomy in Barcelona, you’ll love our Barcelona Gourmet Tour. We’ll take you on a gastronomic journey with 4 stops to our best-kept secret places in Barcelona, unknown to most locals, not to mention tourists or large-scale touring companies. You’ll discover one of our favorite’s local neighborhood for the finest food tour to be found in town.
We’ll start with a visit to a locals’ only wine bar, where a tasting of premium regional wines from small-scale organic producers is awaiting you, along with local delicacies to open your appetite.
As you walk to the next place through small off the beaten streets, you’ll discover hidden specialty food stores on the way and feel the true essence of Barcelona’s local, non-touristy neighborhoods. One stop will be added on the way, depending on your likings (artisanal cheeses tasting, local cured meats tasting, olive oil tasting or else…).
The next stop will be a typical bodega, which is a traditional wine shop where locals get together to have the Catalan aperitif, usually consisting of an artisanal “vermut” served with delightful and simple tapas. This place is one of our best-kept secrets and is definitely among the most authentic family run tapas bars in Barcelona.
Finally, we’ll take you to one of the most incredible fine dining restaurant to complete your gourmet food experience and to taste the best modern Catalan cuisine in Barcelona, paired with premium local wine of course. We’ll also treat ourselves with a dessert to end the evening in the best possible way.
Come on an empty belly, as you’ll try plenty of different food tastings, and a wide variety of premium local drinks (wines, vermut, etc…). Note that this tour is focused on tasting foods representative of the local gastronomy and will mostly (if not only) contain authentic cuisine from the region of Barcelona.
