Altzatenea Restaurante
Zugarramurdi, Navarre View On Map
In Zugarramurdi, we had a fantastic, big Basque lunch at the Altzatenea Restaurante. The staff spoke Spanish, Basque, French and English and the food was delicious and almost all naturally gluten free. Plus, the staff understood about gluten free. For example, they knew to tell us right away that the oil was only used for cooking french fries. Meats, seafood, and vegetables were all mainly grilled and simply seasoned. For dessert, the adults had a lovely plate of cheese, walnuts and quince paste and the kids had ice cream (all gluten free).

McDonalds
, Chain View On Map
In the midst of updating my gluten free research, I ran across the exciting news that all McDonald's restaurants in Spain now offer gluten free buns on request.

This is according to the Spanish celiac website "Infoceliaquía." The website is entirely in Spanish, but click through to an English translation here, which also includes the original press release from McDonald's. Importantly, this introduction of gf bread is being carried out in collaboration with the well-respected Spanish Federation of Celiac Associations (FACE).

The availability of gluten free bread in several big fast food chains in Scandinavia was already a boon to celiacs. Now celiacs in Spain can also be assured of a quick meal on the fly. It may not be healthy, but this is a real win opening up many options for those traveling with young gluten free kids.

Rubina
Los Cristianos, Tenerife View On Map
My husband and I have just returned from Los Cristianos and really wanted to recommend this restaurant. I have previously found eating out on holiday quite difficult and limited. No so this time!! The owner, Mo, has a friend who is a coeliac and was fully aware of the condition and what we can and cannot eat. He devised the menu himself and can tell you the precise ingredients of each dish. Mo and his staff speak perfect English so no translation cards are required! I was able to pick from a very wide selection of gluten free starters and main courses, including pasta.

The food was absolutely fantastic and all freshly cooked - no packets here!! We ate here 4 times and the food was, without doubt, the best I have eaten since I was diagnosed. Most importantly I had no bad reaction afterwards so feel confident in recommending this restaurant to other coeliacs or those with a special dietary requirement. The restaurant is clean and modern and the atmosphere is very relaxed. We never felt we had to rush off after our meal so stayed and had brandy & coffees for the rest of the evening. Thanks to Mo and his team we had a really enjoyable holiday and will certainly try to return to Los Cristianos & Rubina's.

The Point
Corralejo, Fuerteventura View On Map
Just had to post on here about The Point, which is a great wee place tucked up behind one of the town beaches, lovely views, and wonderful warm and friendly service.

The proprietor, Louise is Coeliac herself, so you have nothing to worry about when it comes to safe and tasty gluten free food.

We had burger and fab home made chips (yes, the chips are safe!!), prawns with garlic and pimiento, mussels with home made pesto, and amazing flambeed bananas for dessert.

They also have gluten free beer (!!), gf pasta, can make you sandwiches with gf bread etc etc, so much choice. A veritable haven for Coeliacs, and we were made to feel very welcome!

Eating out can be a bit stressful sometimes, and this wee place helped us to have a relaxing and fab holiday!

Hesperia Lanzarote
Puerto Calero, Lanzarote View On Map
My hotel - the lovely NH Hesperia Lanzarote - provided gluten free bread at the breakfasts - I only requested it once, after that they noted down my room number so that each morning when I came in they would go and get it for me. It wasn't the softest, but who on earth is complaining when you can smother it with nutella and honey. It felt very naughty. I loved the fresh spanish omelettes and large array of high quality cured meats - serrrano ham with my eggs, yum. That and loads of fresh fruit, ahem. And free champagne. Which is always gluten free!

I didn't stay there for dinner - but check it out on the dining bit of their website - they mention the gluten free food they provide. I like!

Puerto Bahia
Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote View On Map
We took a trip to the nearby Puerto del Carmen for dinner, picking Puerto Bahia in the old town harbour area on the basis that it had the nicest views and a black ink paella on the menu.

When I asked if the scampi on top of the paella had any flour on it he said "Are you a coeliac?". I nearly missed it - it was my companion that heard him say it - me being so unused to hearing such a thing. He came back and said that it was gluten free, and asked if I would like some gluten free bread. It was soft and warm and fantastic. I may have eaten a bit to much of it before receiving the massive, freshly prepared and scrupmtious squid and scampi paella, but what they hey, it's so rare!

Hotel Palmanova
Palma Nova, Majorca View On Map
We all enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Palmanova, the rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels, the staff were pleasant and friendly and we could not have asked for more. The main reason for this review is the restaurant staff esspecially the restaurant manager Pedro, I am a Coeliac, that means I'me on a Gluten Free diet and Pedro bent over backwards to help me in my choice of food and if there was not a lot of choice he would get me either meat or fish grilled, he was just great, THANK YOU PEDRO, it was he and Jaun who made my holiday the success it was. This is a message to all you Coeliacs out there, the Hotel Palmanova will look after you and tend to your Dietary need's. Thank you all at the Hotel Palmanova.

Stay Restaurant
Port de Pollenca, Mallorca View On Map
Right over the water of the bay of Port de Pollenca, this restaurant offers really special food. Phone ahead to arrange gluten free. Everything is taken care of, even gluten free 'amuse bouche', home made bread rolls. You won't feel like you are going 'without' at all! Not cheap but worth it for a really special meal.
