Hradčany, Prague View On Map
We discovered Vegan's by accident while on the way to Prague Castle. We were both worn out from a long day of walking and sightseeing and wanted somewhere to stop for a drink. Located at the top of three flights of stairs, Vegan's is a light and airy restaurant covering two floors. It also has an open terrace, which looks out over the rooftops of Prague, which was lovely, but a little chilly for the time of year we were there.
I hadn't planned on eating, but once I saw the menu I knew I couldn't leave without trying something. The gluten free options were clearly marked and there was so much choice it was hard to pick! I was tempted by the guacamole and crackers, and the marinated peppers filled with aubergine, but in the end I went for the tofu burger, which was served on top of a potato gratin with pickled cabbage and rocket. This was my first experience in a vegan restaurant, and I was blown away by how delicious everything was, and I was so pleased I gave it a try.
I also tried the homemade raspberry lemonade, which was filled with fresh crushed raspberries, which was a lovely accompaniment to the meal and very refreshing. This is another restaurant I'd love to re-visit if given the chance, and I think it would be a great setting for a romantic meal.

Švejk Restaurant U Karla
Nové Město, Prague View On Map
Švejk Restaurant U Karla specialises in traditional Czech cuisine, which I wanted to try as most of the other eateries we visited during our stay were European. They have a separate gluten free menu, which you have to ask for, and serve gluten free beer - which is a necessity if you're visiting Prague! The dining area is a large and open, with dark wood and traditional Czech decor.
The menu doesn't have a huge amount of choice if you're vegetarian, but I opted for the fried cheese, served with chips and tartar sauce, which was great. I'm a sucker for anything gluten free fried in breadcrumbs or batter because it's not something I can be bothered to cook at home so it's a real treat. The chips especially were delicious. I also tried a side of Czech dumplings as I was curious to see what they were like. They were soft, comforting and very filling - I practically had to be rolled home!
My carnivorous boyfriend had the chicken schnitzel, which he really enjoyed. We both loved the sauerkraut, which came with our meals, I'm not usually a fan of cabbage, but it was delicious and I'm pleased I got to try something new.
Neither of us had any room left for a dessert, which was a shame as they had quite a few gluten free options, including pancakes and an apple strudel! The service was attentive, but a little brusque, I wouldn't let that put you off though, as the food was great and we had a really enjoyable evening in this part of town.

Smichov, Prague View On Map
Lavande was one of a few restaurants we discovered during our stay, when looking for somewhere to eat during the day. They have an a la carte menu for the evenings, and a specials menu for lunch, which changes daily. The menu and specials were clearly marked, with vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and dairy free options available. The staff were very friendly and the service was great, the restaurant was modern, bright and airy, and had a vibrant and lively atmosphere. I had the halloumi burger on a gluten free bun, which was a real treat, served with salad. It was great, and my boyfriend enjoyed his beef special very much too. If we ever return to Prague I would love to visit Lavande for an evening meal. It was busy during the day however, so it might be worth booking a table if you have your heart set on a particular evening.

Stare Mesto, Prague View On Map
Alriso is another entirely gluten free Italian restaurant. I was so excited to try this place, and it didn't disappoint at all - we ended up here twice as it was so good! Inside it's a small intimate restaurant, with excellent and attentive staff. It was busy both evenings and had a cosy and romantic atmosphere.
There were fewer vegetarian options, but still enough choice that it was difficult to decide what to try. I opted for tomato and mozzarella gnocchi one evening, and spinach and gorgonzola risotto the next, which were delicious and I would recommend them both. My boyfriend, who isn't gluten free, raved about both of his meals, which I do have to admit, did look very good.
Once we'd ordered we were brought a paper bag with some gluten free bread inside, and some olive oil to dip it in, which was a wonderful surprise. It had a dense and cakey texture and tasted great. These little touches are what made the experience so special, as I usually have to miss out on this sort of thing at home because of a lack of choice or risk of cross contamination.
For dessert, between us, we tried the chocolate fondant, tiramisu and panna cotta, but the tiramisu stole the show - it was perfectly and creamy and had a wonderful coffee flavour. For three courses each, and a bottle of Prosecco, Alriso worked out at around £30 a head, which, considering how much we enjoyed the great food and service, was a total bargain. It was the most expensive restaurant we ate at during our stay, but was absolutely worth it.

Grand Majestic Plaza Hotel
Praha 1, Prague View On Map
This hotel was just beside the Palladium shopping centre and served us very well for a short stay in Prague. We ate breakfast (they had gluten free bread available on request - it doesn't say this anywhere, you just have to ask) and decent allergen labelling on the buffet. The hotel was really nice and the rooms were a standard size. We would stay here again.

Praha 1, Prague View On Map
Amazing ice cream parlour with gluten free cones (on request) and a vast selection of home made flavours. I had the hazelnut and the salted caramel - absolutely amazing. Check their website before you visit to see which flavours are gluten free (although almost all of them are).

Good Eats
Praha 1, Prague View On Map
This is a good spot for a light lunch. I had an omelette (it came with gluten bread on the side but I didn't tell them I was coeliac so I just gave it to my partner). My partner, who is not coeliac, had a full English and said it was very tasty. The omelette was light and fluffy. The menu said most of the soups are gluten free, though I didn't try them.

Pizza Nuova
Praha 1, Prague View On Map
This was a really nice find, that we almost walked past. Despite the name, they do a full menu of pizza, pasta and meatballs dishes. The menu said they had gluten free pasta so that was what I went for. The carbonara was really tasty, generous portion size too. A nice touch, the waiter asked if I wanted penne or spaghetti. He also offered a selection of desserts. A bit of a busy spot, the food here is delicious and the service is great.

Charles Bridge, Prague View On Map
I was in Prague this weekend. I found a great place, where you can eat gluten free: Alriso. It's near by Charles Bridge. They have a lot rice flour products (they bake they own gluten free bread). That's a great place.

Restaurace Na Zlaté křižovatce
Florenc, Prague View On Map
When we last visited Prague 5yrs ago it was our first trip away after diagnosis and we ended up eating each night in our hotel where the head chef was Irish. This time we were better prepeared after this restaurant had been previously added to the site.

After exploring the Christmas market we walked out towards the Florenc region of the city to find the restaurant. It was lunch time and on arrival there were 3 or 4 other tables in the quaint downstairs location. Na Zlaté křižovatce serves a 100% Gluten Free menu, a menu that even includes draught beer which was a first in 5yrs! It was so nice sitting down enjoying a beer and a bread basket while checking out the menu. After a starter of soup for Mrs TGF and a caesar salad with chicken, bacon and some of the nicest toast I have ever tasted. They were of a great size and very soon we were tucking in to mains of gnocchi and spaghetti. Again both were large and delicious. We were so full we couldn't manage desert but the range did look very appetising.

Most of the patrons while we were in the restaurant were overseas travellers so it is good to see that it is becoming well known as it is off the beaten track so knowledge is power! Here's hoping that it will continue to prosper and be of help to all future Prague travllers.
