What are the best food tours in Barcelona?

Do you have a suggestion for a great food tour in Barcelona?  There are so many options, and I'd like to hear anyone's personal experience with a food tour.  A tapas tour would be great, since this will be our first trip to Spain; but, if you have had a great experience on a non-tapas tour I'd like to hear that, too.

Thanks!

    IHi Amanda, please take my advice and book Aborigins- Local Food Insider. It is the best. I have taken three different food tours in Barcelona over the past few years. The first two were ok, but they were cookie-cutter tours. They went to the same five places on every tour and it seemed rehearsed and soulless. Finally, on my third trip to Barcelona, I checked chowhound and went with a tour recommended by foodies. Aborigens has three different tours available (morning, evening, and outside of the city center tour) and they are different each time you go. The guides tailor the tour based on how adventurous the group is or if someone has specific allergies.

    5 sets of friends have done the nighttime tour since I went, and each of them had a different and wonderful experience. Alex, a wonderful local guide, will also give you hints and ideas for great places to eat in Barcelona and provided me with a list of places to go in Andalusia. I have no association with this tour, it's just that good that I want to recommend it to all my friends and anyone else that is looking for a truly local experience. You will go places that you would never find on your own during a visit to Barcelona. Eat well and enjoy yourself!

    Hola Amanda!

    Buen provecho...

    I have not taken any food tours in Barcelona yet but one of the best things about all of Spain is the food! Never had a bad meal anywhere! But be sure to go one evening to Restaurante Los Caracoles. It is on Calle Escudellers, Phone 302 31 85. As a Spain Destinations Specialist Travel Consultant I have recommended it to many of my clients and they all come back with raving comments. They are most famous for their roasted baby lamb or baby pig as well as their roasted chicken. It's all fantastic. For dessert order the crema catalana. It's like a cold creme brulee. We've also ordered their paella which was wonderful!

    And if you like Paella, the most famous restaurant is Restaurant 7 Portes on Paseo De Isabel II, Phone 93 319 30 33

    Recommend you make reservations. Both extremely popular restaurant.

    A sus ordenes,

    Terry

    Hi Amanda! I took a fun food tour in Barcelona called "Barcelona Tapas Experience" by Sandmans New Europe. It cost 20 Euro. I really enjoyed the experience. We had a lot of great food and drinks and also explored a couple of different neighborhoods. It was a great way to meet people as a solo traveler as well. I made a Youtube video about it that you might find helpful: https://youtu.be/oxctnE0P1H8.

    Hi Amanda,

    Disclaimer - I do work for this company that aggregates food & wine tours in Barcelona, but these are our customer's favorites:

    Tapas tour in the historic center.. a good first day activity to see get a guided visit of the historic center & taste the most typical tapas along the way:

    https://www.foodieandtours.com/barcelona/barcelona-tapas-walking-tour

    Tapas tour in Gracia - Gracia is a neighborhood that tourists don't tend to go to, therefore it preserves a "small town" kind of feel. My friends have done this tapas tour before and they raved about it!

    Hope this helps.
