What to Expect

Discover how locals in Granada eat out and try some of the best foodie places in town!

Our Tapas Tour starts with a visit to a small shop with a fabulous selection of products all from the Granada region where we’ll get to try some of them.

You’ll meet Alfredo and see him share some of Granada´s locally made specialties: natural wines, organic oils, goat cheeses, artisanal beers with Sierra Nevada water and cherimoya, gin, local vegetables, chocolates, Segureño lamb ham, La Contraviesa cider, jam of rose petals or dehydrated mango are just some of the many proposals that its shelves lovingly store.  Granada has the Sierra Nevada area and the almost 3,500 meters of Mulhacén, but also the Costa Tropical at sea level and this space is the perfect place to understand very different climates that make the great variety of local products huge.

A step away from the Cathedral, a piece of history in the form of an establishment awaits us. It is an old ultramarinos (grocery store) born in 1850 in which, for example, it served those who arrived with ration cards in times of Civil War and the long postwar years. We’ll meet the owner, Rafa whose family took over the premises a little over three decades ago. Today the place specializes in the sale of nuts and dried fruits of high quality which we’ll try of course.

You will learn how to differentiate “Jamón Serrano”, including our worldwide famous and highly appreciated Iberian Bellota ham and also local ham from the mountain villages of Sierra Nevada with our friend Ivan, a professional cutter famous in Granada. Awaken your senses and enjoy this hand-cut delicatessen in a small, family-run specialty store.

But not only traditional tapas reflect our local gastronomy, but also the ones with a modern twist, although always inspired by autochthonous ingredients and authentic recipes. A good example is modern Alameda restaurant with a great variety of wines, delicious food and luxury decoration.

After that we’ll visit a well-loved by locals place to experience the art of tapear. It’s a hidden tavern that lives an intense hustle and bustle, a constant coming and going of people who know that they will find what they are looking for there: for example their homemade vermouth or their hearty tapas.

The Tour ends in a mythical place of Granada’s gastronomy, whose owner Dani describes as “a site that is a bit of everyone and a lot of Granada”. It is located in the same facilities as Café Alameda years ago, the one that was frequented by Federico García Lorca and Manuel de Falla.

Their dishes are based on traditional food, such as the exquisite remojón granadino, the asparagus casserole or the homemade pionono

Throughout the whole activity you will be guided by a member of our team, a Food Sherpa, an expert in our local culture. A person with a deep knowledge of the best-kept foodie secrets of Granada.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the best places to eat in town and to discover hidden gems that even locals don’t know about!

Our Granada Food Tour serves enough food to be equivalent to a hearty lunch or dinner.

  • We are locals and love to eat! That’s why we would only take you to places that totally convince us and where we go with our friends and families. No tourist traps
  • Not all Tours are created equal. Our tours are not standardized, but a real reflection of the delicacies every season has to offer and the creativity of our chefs. We took much time and effort in designing the tours so you can enjoy delicious treats, discover hidden places and submerge in our (food) culture in local hideaways.
  • Feel welcome and like a local. We have great friendships and exclusive partnerships with restaurants, taverns, and market vendors.
  • Expert foodie guides. They truly are real professionals and experts on local cuisine!
  • Much more than wonderful food in interesting places. There’s more to it- it’s about the attitude, about getting a bit closer to our authentic culture and real people!

Although anytime is a good time to do a food tour or a cooking class, if it fits your schedule, it’s best to book the tour/class early on your trip because you’ll come out with lots of recommendations for other places to try and things to do.

Also, after the tour in Granada, you’ll receive our Dining Guide that comes with a handy map where we have put all our favourite places to eat and drink.

There are no discounts for non-drinkers as in Spain, and specially in southern Spain non-acoholic drinks  normally cost  the same as beer or wine.

Of course you can! One of the great things about our tours is the opportunity to meet other travelers from all over the world.

Our tours require 2 people to take place. If there is no one else booked, you can sign up for the class without paying and will receive a confirmation pending email. When the minimum number is reached, your booking will be automatically accepted and you’ll be asked for the online payment

What People Say About Our Tours

“Unlock the hidden gems and history of Granada’s famous tapas.”

I really enjoyed this experience, I went with a friend but as the groups are small and intimate it would also be great for someone visiting by themselves.

Sam C, Tripadvisor

“This is a MUST for anyone visiting Granada! ”

A highlight for us was visiting one of Spain’s oldest shops selling dried fruits and an amazing selection of nuts, along with tasting Granada’s award-winning tapas.
