Full description
Enjoy this small group food tour off the beaten path in Barcelona. During this morning walking tour, you will go beyond the typical tourist places to a market tour including the farmer's market. You will stop at one of the few bars that have kept its Catalan identity for over half a century to enjoy homemade tapas. Visit a neighborhood full of local artists and finish with a full meal at a restaurant where they 'sometimes' cook better than grandmothers. Which better way to experience Barcelona than a dedicated food tour to taste the authentic and go where locals go. 

You will start the tour in a unique venue in Spain, a gastronomic center created under the slow food philosophy and open to offer food and wine tours to foodies and travelers visiting Barcelona. You will be welcomed here with a sparkling glass of cava. Continue your tour visiting a local market and its busy farmer's market, where the farmers from the orchards nearby sell their daily produce. After the market visit, your guide will take you to experience an authentic and stimulating Barcelona neighborhood. Raval is historic, authentic, vibrant and full of personality with a great variety of tempting restaurants, cafes, bars and taverns. You will never guess you are only 2 blocks from the most touristic place in Barcelona, Las Ramblas. Your local guide will give you insider’s tips and insights of where to stroll, eat, drink or take pictures.

Stop to enjoy typical Spanish vermouth in a truly authentic tavern run by a fifth generation family. A friendly, family-run tavern, that won local hearts for its good food, happy staff and unique décor. A place frozen in time from 60 years ago. By the end of the tour, your well-prepared and tasty meal will be waiting for you. Elisa, the cook, has a rigid dedication to fresh produce, and dishes are prepared and rotated every day, so as to get the best out of the season’s produce. The only dishes she does not change are the staple traditional dishes hardly found in restaurants. With small and intimate groups, you will come to as a visitor, but leave as a friend.
