Omelegg
Centraal, Amsterdam View On Map
Omelegg was a delicious discovery during our time in Amsterdam! We stopped off here for lunch and were delighted to see the range of choice for omelettes. The menu isn't specifically marked as gluten free but the staff were very helpful. The only downside is that they don't keep gluten free bread in stock. The omelette portion sizes are huge though so I definitely didn't leave hungry. The atmosphere here was also very friendly and relaxed - the kitchen is out in the open too. I would have loved to revisit here a few more times but sadly our trip was only a few days long.

Haesje Claes
Historic Centre, Amsterdam View On Map
They have a huge gluten free menu with reasonable prices and is in a good location if you are staying centrally. On both occasions I was served by the same waitress who is gluten intolerant herself (I didn't ask but wondered afterwards if we had been assigned to her by design). I was offered gluten free bread and there was gluten free beer available. On the most recent visit I ordered a Dutch dish Hothcpotch with meatball,sausage, and bacon. This was served with a potato and vegetable mash and gravy and I really enjoyed it. For dessert I had gluten free pancakes with ice cream and an orange sauce. Excellent meals on both visits.

Pancakes Amsterdam
Negen Straatjes, Amsterdam View On Map
We visited Pancakes Amsterdam at the second attempt after giving up on our first visit as the line outside of people waiting to get in was massive! This is a popular place and not very big so we decided we might have more joy going for brunch rather than at lunch time. This paid off and we managed to get a table. We both ordered the gluten free pancakes which were huge when they arrived. I decided to go for a savoury bacon and cheese pancake which was really really good. I demolished every last mouthful and washed it down with some more of that delicious freshly squeezed orange juice. Friendly staff and a must visit.

Belgisch Restaurant Lieve
Grachtengordel-West, Amsterdam View On Map
I visited the Belgian restaurant Lieve on both of my visits to Amsterdam. The restaurant is centrally located in the canal belt, has a separate gluten free menu with very reasonable prices. The staff were very helpful on both occasions I have visited and there is also gluten free bottled beer available. Lieve offers an all inclusive deal where you can drink as much beer or wine as you like in two hours, which unfortunately doesn't include the gluten free beer. We ended up with a three course meal, plus amuse bouche, sides and copious amounts of beer and wine for around £25 a head. But what's more the food here was delicious too. Also worth noting the fries are gluten free. Well worth a visit.

Piqniq
Haarlemmerbuurt, Amsterdam View On Map
Lunch on day two took us to a small cafe called Piqniq. Here I enjoyed tomato soup with a very tasty cheese, tomato and salami toasted Italian sandwich on gluten free bread. As with many of the places we visited in Amsterdam this was washed down with some delicious freshly squeezed orange juice. A little on the pricey side but the food was very nice and this was a perfect lunch stop which I would return to if we ever go back to Amsterdam. There was also a choice of gluten free desserts and I had a lovely piece of "Snickers" tart to set me on my way. Plus points for having a cafe cat too.

La Vina
Rivierenbuurt, Amsterdam View On Map
La Vina was the food highlight of our trip. This restaurant is run by a coeliac and was a little bit out of the way but well worth the journey. Having arrived I was a little surprised to find out there was no gluten free menu and gluten free items were not marked on the menu. However, I was soon told I could have anything off the menu apart from the ravioli and was offered gluten free bread and a choice of two gluten free beers. Happy coeliac time! I had a lovely steak and fries which was followed up with the most fantastic dessert of chocolate fondant with dulce de leche and ice cream. It was so good I gave serious consideration to seconds! This restaurant was the most expensive we visited but the quality of the food was such that we didn't see the price as any sort of problem. Would definitely go back.

Brasserie Harkema

Gluten free bread by order. And they are really service minded to find a glutenfree (+ lactosefree) solution.

Woodstone Pizza
Haarlem, North Holland View On Map
Upon researching gluten-free food ahead of our move to Haarlem, I was extremely pleased to discover Woodstone Pizza, which sits a shortish walk from the train station. (Which itself is a 15 minute trip from Amsterdam) When we went there on Friday, the place was packed by 7:30pm, and we had to put our names on a list and find somewhere to have a drink for 20 minutes. But once we were seated service was efficient and friendly, although every new waiter and waitress got momentarily confused when we replied in English. We asked for the English menu and it was presented on a tablet.

They mark gluten-free options with a "G" next to the menu item, but there weren't too many gluten-free options except for the pizzas. The gluten-free pizzas are cooked in a separate oven to avoid cross-contamination. Their website suggested to give them some advance warning, but when we phoned up and tried to warn them they didn't seem that bothered about it. I had no problems ordering the base, and it didn't seem to take a long time, so I can only presume they stock plenty. They have a lot of weird and wonderful toppings, but I played it safe and went for the Americano: pepperoni, onion rings, peppers, mozzarella, garlic and jalepenos. The toppings were really fantastic - fresh, crunchy veg, juicy meat, tasty cheese, nicely flavoured by garlic and chilli. The base I would describe as fine. It was a little like a corn tortilla, and it didn't really try to have any dough-like properties, but when combined with the gorgeous toppings, you didn't really notice it that much. I would definitely come back here. All in all, it was a great dining experience. It seems incredibly popular with locals, which is always a good sign. The quality of the food and drink overall was great and the service was very friendly and efficient. All spoke English to a high standard. Definitely worth a day trip from Amsterdam.

Haesje Claes
Historic Centre, Amsterdam View On Map
The best restaurant we found in Amsterdam was Haesje Claes. This is the only one I found on the internet and is listed in the Coeliac UK directory too. They have a proper gluten-free menu. It is a traditional restaurant with traditional home-made food. It is pricey but definitely worthy. This, on the left,was my lunch - lovely calf's liver with apple, mash and bacon. And gluten-free bread! Yum! And the service was quite good too.
