The sterotypical Frenchman is cycling along with a stripy jumper and a baguette under his arm. Whilst those on a gluten free diet can still ride a bike and wear the jumpers, the French obsession with Pastries does appear a problem at first sight. Hopefully with us this doesn't have to be the case.

Café Breizh
Breton, Paris View On Map
Is an authentic Bretagne café and while there were no seats at the café available for us, we ate at the Deli next door. All savoury crêpes are made with buckwheat and once we explained our son's dietary needs, they also made a sweet buckwheat crêpe for him. You can also buy a pack of 6 buckwheat crêpes to take away and these became a staple for breakfasts at our apartment. Crêperies became a popular eating venue for our two teenage sons.

Buffalo Grill
, Chain View On Map
In August 2013 we stayed at the Campanile in Metz (Est Technopole). Very limited choice of g/f on the menu at Campanile, so we walked up the road to the Buffalo Grill, an amusing French interpretation of a Texan steak house. The staff there were clued-up about g/f and we had a lovely meal.

Bio Sphere Café
8th Arr, Paris View On Map
All the information on the internet suggests that it is worth booking a table before you come as it gets busy. So I did. However we got here about 30 minutes before our booking time and the place was empty. So I am not sure if it gets busier later or we came very early. Either way I would book because it would be awful to get here and be unable to get a table. This place is small but that should not put you off. If anything I guess that adds to the charm of being served by the friendly owner Sylvie.

The great thing about here is they have all the things on the menu that a coeliac would normally be starved off in Paris, I'm talking; pasta, pizza, sandwiches, quiche, baguette and lots of cakes! The baguettes have to be reserved in advance so if you are planning on coming here definitely ask about them when you phone up. We opted for Galettes. Both the cakes tasted absolutely fantastic. They tasted real which just goes to show that if you put the time and energy into things you can achieve great results.

I really loved this place it was so nice to eat in an entirely gluten free environment which I doubt many of us actually do. There was attention to detail. All in all it was a very pleasant experience. Would I go back? Absolutely!

Café Breizh
Breton, Paris View On Map
This is a busy little Breton café serving Breton specialities of Galettes. By this I mean proper buckwheat pancakes made with no other flour. This café is seriously busy at lunchtimes and if I had been more organised I would have booked a table, however being on holiday and not really sure of where we were going to be I didn't do this. Anyway we did go here and while they were full to the brim I was able to get something to take away from their delicatessen next door which was fantastic. I opted for a galette filled with smoked salmon and salad which actually was presented like a wrap which was great as I wasn't in the mood for anything too heavy. Actually this was really good as it meant we could pick up something for me, then pick up something gluten loaded for MrG and have a picnic outside Le Centre Pompidou. Would I go back? Absolutely, I definitely would like to eat in next time!

NoGlu
Vivienne, Paris View On Map
In Paris there was one exclusively gluten free restaurant, called NoGlu. It was really cool to be able to pick anything off the menu without any hesitation. The restauarant has only been in operation for 7 months, and there were many delicious meals on the menu, including items such as a quinoa salad, salmon with a potato dish, and a Parisian club sandwich - which consisted of procuitto, swiss cheese and caramelized onions...it was declicious. They also had cookies, muffins, and other pastries on their menu - I was much too full to indulge though. I should also mention that the bread is homemade and they even bring a gluten free bread basket, it was so fun!

Mon Histoire dans l'assiet
Lyon, Rhône-Alpes View On Map
Mon Histoire dans l'assiet which translates into My Story on a Plate is an ambitious concept in Lyon, France's gastronomical capital. All of their dishes are free of 11 of the top allergens (gluten, eggs, lactose, peanuts, pitted fruits, soya, mustard, seafood, celery, sesame and lupin beans). In addition it also emphasizes fresh and local food. Although I was skeptical about how it would taste, I really enjoyed all my dishes, as did my fellow dining companions who didn't suffer from food allergies. Full Review

Sofitel La Defense
La Defense, Paris View On Map
For various reasons we chose to stay at the Sofitel La Defense. Before going to Paris we emailed and asked for gluten free breakfast items and got no response (in a kind of usual hotel fashion). Anyway being that it was France, I decided not to expect anything. When we got to breakfast the next morning, I went off into my usual coeliac hotel survival mode to forage for anything suitable from the breakfast items. I found: cheese, fruit, yoghurt, meats, fresh sauteed potatoes, scrambled eggs from egg (some hotels have a nasty habit of adding flour when making scrambled egg: WHY?), hot aubergine and courgettes cooked in a pot with fresh herbs. Needless to say I was content. It was only when Mr G got up to go to the bread section he noticed at his eye line height (just short of six foot above ground level) well above the gluten bread a plate of clearly labelled "pain sans gluten"! You could have knocked me down with a feather I was more than surprised. Things are most definitely changing in Paris. The bread was actually very good. It reminded me a lot of the Schar but it was a whole loaf rather than just a section.

Helmut Newcake
10th Arr, Paris View On Map
Helmut Newcake is a coeliac's heaven! You're greeted with a display of lots of delicate looking pastries, normally a torturous sight, but in Helmut Newcake, there's one difference, they're totally gluten free! It's a fantastic place which also sells gluten free products if you're planning on doing any cooking. The cakes were simply divine, so good that we had to buy some for the Eurostar home!

Tugalik
5th Arr, Paris View On Map
Twitter is a great tool for finding like minded coeliacs and this was how I discovered this gem. It's a vegetarian restaurant near the Sorbonne and serves a select number of specials at lunch. They label what's gluten free clearly and all the desserts were gluten free. We had a hearty fish dish, served on some crushed potatoes with greens in a white sauce. It was a really warming dish, especially as it provided a perfect escape from the showery weather. We shared a carrot cake and chocolate cake and both were great, you wouldn't have been able to tell they were gluten free!

Noglu
Vivienne, Paris View On Map
Breakfast can be a little more challenging but there's plenty of brasseries that will serve you an omelette. If however, you fancy some authentic bread, French madeleines and macaroons then get to Noglu! Noglu is a totally gluten free restaurant and if we were heading back I'd definitely check it out for dinner. We arrived hungry at 10am on the dot and in true French fashion they weren't quite ready for us, but I'm glad we hung around! The fresh gluten free bread was one of the best I've ever had and was served with some excellent jams. A great gluten free breakfast!

Le Jules Verne by Alain Ducasse
Eiffel Tower, Paris View On Map
We were lucky enough to go to Le Jules Verne which is situated half way up the Eiffel tour and therefore has a spectacular view! It's also Michelin starred which usually means they're pretty clued up on what's gluten free. They were great at adapting the dishes, I did ask what a 'Savarin' was on the dessert menu and was told in no uncertain terms that it was "absolutely impossible for you", but you just have to get used to the direct style of French waiters! The food was sensational. A definite highlight was my starter of Meurette-style egg - a baked egg in a red wine sauce with bacon and vegetables. It sounds simple, but was beautifully rich with flavour, the way French cuisine often is. The dessert was one of the best I've eaten anywhere. Soft chocolate mousse with shards of tempered chocolate, cubes of mint jelly and a mint 'snow', a beautifully fresh way to end the meal.

Chateau de Villars
Villars, Aquitaine View On Map
We recently stayed for a week's full board at the Chateau de Villars, which specialises in fine French cuisine, all totally gluten-free. Bill, the chef, caters for coeliacs in particular but other food intolerances and special dietary needs are easily accomodated. Fresh, local produce is used to create sumptuous feasts... think 4 course dinners featuring poulet au riesling, tarte au citron..and relax in the knowledge that it's all gluten-free. The Chateau itself is elegant but comfortable, hosts Kevin & Bill cannot do enough for their guests and are a fount of knowledge about the local area, which boasts beautiful pastoral countryside, historic towns and castles and awe-inspiring limestone caves. If you can't spare a week, stay for a couple of nights or even just have dinner there if you're in the area, you won't regret it!

Au Gourmand
Jardin du Palais Royal, Paris View On Map
For dinner, we walked to a place called Au Gourmand. As I was showing the waiter/manager my GF travel card in French, he explained to me that he was a Coeliac as well (and lactose intolerant). I knew I was in good hands. He brought me GF bread (which was a bit crumbly but I wasn't about to complain). He also brought out some truffle mashed potatoes when we were waiting for our dishes that was unbelievable. I couldn't believe my luck... a Parisian celiac on the first night!

Briezh Cafe
Marais Quarter, Paris View On Map
On our third day in Paris, we went all out on the sugar front. First to Briezh Cafe, a creperie well-known around the world for their 100% buckwheat (naturally gluten-free) crepes. HOLY BANANAS. So delicious. We had dinner AND dessert crepes. SO good.

Le Casse Noix
Nr Eiffel Tower, Paris View On Map
Our first night in Paris, we were sent to a place called Casse Noix near the Eiffel Tower. A very quaint, hidden gem, this place set the bar very high for the rest of our trip. They had a fixed menu (or menu du jour as do most places in France) and they offered me their gluten-free recommendations from their kitchen. I had a salad, fish and the absolute best rice pudding with caramel drizzle I have ever had... and it will be hard to ever top that! I would go back just for this rice pudding. The staff was incredibly sweet and wanted to make sure everything was perfect - and it was.

Le Reminet
Pantheon, Paris View On Map
A family run restaurant with exceptional value quality French food for lunch or dinner. We even visited for a second meal! The restaurant is coeliac friendly with many of the menu options either gluten free or easily adapted. The service was friendly and caters for tourists with English spoken, however many of the diners were locals rather than tourists.

Smokey Joes
Les Deux Alpes, Rhône-Alpes View On Map
We were on a skiing holiday in the Les Deux Alpes resort and most nights we were catered for in our chalet but on one night it was up to us to fend for ourselves. After speaking to our rep we decided as a group to head to Smokey Joes as it served a selection of foods but more importantly it could cater for our Gluten Free diet and also the dairy free diet of a friend. The waiting staff were very attentive, going through all ingredients with us to ensure they were safe and also double checking with the kitchen. All in all the food was very tasty and the fact that they were willing to help out with numerous food requiments mean that we would happily head back there again if we head to Les Deux Alpes again for skiing in the future.

Chateau de Villars
Villars, Aquitaine View On Map
A superb week in the French countryside. The food is out of this world and it is gluten free. The opportunity to eat dinner, some nights in the dining room, some on the terrace or at a barbeque by the pool is not to be missed (and breakfast and lunch were excellent as well). The rooms are very comfortable and are all individually decorated.

There is plenty to do within a very short distance walking, cycling or driving. We loved Brantome, the Venice of the Perigord, but the Grottes de Villars (caves) and Chateau Puyguilhelm were also well worth the visit. If we went again, we might give canoing on the dronne a miss but others from the Chateau thoroughly enjoyed it. Kevin and Bill are wonderful hosts.

Zeste
City Centre, Avignon View On Map
Located in a pretty square in the heart of Avignon with inside and outside seating, Zeste offers a wide range of home-made soups, hot dishes, salads, sandwiches, wraps, juices, desserts and smoothies - all made with fresh seasonal ingredients, organic where possible, as well as beer, coffee and a large selection of teas (but not English Breakfast tea!). Take away is available and there is a good choice of vegetarian items on the menu.

This restaurant was suggested by the tourist office when I asked where I might be able to find gluten-free food. The guy in charge spoke excellent English and was very helpful. My two companions who can eat anything had a great choice and I was able to make a good meal from various salads and a chick pea dish, followed by a divine rice pudding made with flaked almonds and spice. The pudding was so good I took an extra one to eat next day on the TGV to Nice.

Open 7 days a week from 07.30 for breakfast to evening (closing time can depend on how busy they are).
