What you’ll do

Join one of our local Barcelona hosts in the never ending pursuit of the best tapas in Barcelona. Eating your way around the city looking for the tastiest morsels of Iberian ham, Spanish sheep’s milk cheese and Pimientos de Padron is serious work - but someone has to do it.

From the medieval streets of El Born to the fisherman’s district of La Barceloneta, your tapas addicted host (it happens to the best of us) will take you to the under the radar bars and terraces where you can experience authentic tapas in the company of locals.

These dishes of nibbles may be small, but there’s more flavour squeezed into each bite than you could have dreamed possible - especially when it comes to Montaditos - mounted atop these bite-sized slices you could find anything from caviar to chorizo. And like many things in life, all of this is vastly improved by some sangria or beers, best when chilled - as indeed we all are.

Our Picks

  • Join a tapas-loving host and explore Barcelona's tapas scene, discovering your new favourite treat along the way

  • Stroll through the back alleyways with your host and find hidden bars, markets and eateries

  • Sample some of the best tapas in town and wash it down with an authentic drink (we recommend sangrias!)

  • Get recommendations from your host about other areas to explore in Barcelona and other joints in town to sample the best tapas during the remainder of your trip

Jonathon was a very fine host. He was on time and we were able to discuss our wishes forcwhatcand wherecto Go. Jonathan had many ideas and it was obvious he knewcthe city and the kind of places we wanted to go. We walked around the area and he showed us some of the points of interest. We ultimately found a restaurant that was very nice and the food selections were very good. Jonathan was a good conversationalist and was very interesting to talk with. He was pleasant, intelligent and very knowledgeable.
