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).

Des Si et des Mets
Montmartre, Paris View On Map
Des si et des mets is a completely gluten-free restaurant half way up the hill of Montmartre. We chose this restaurant because one of our party is coeliac and it is very difficult to get safe gluten-free food in France, especially if you don't speak fluent French.

The service was charming and the food delicious. The two non-coeliacs enjoyed it just as much as the one who needed gluten-free and said that they would never have realised that the food was gluten-free if they hadn't been told. The waitresses were busy, but very friendly and efficient.

The three-course set menu which costs 26 Euros per person, includes lots of home-made bread and desserts as well as tea or coffee, but items can be ordered separately if you don't want so much. A few items incur a small supplement - e.g. 2 Euros for a wonderful cheesecake. The menu is available in English and probably several other languages as well as French.

Our hotel reception rang to make a reservation. They were told that as two large parties were expected that evening, the restaurant couldn't guarantee a table for us, but if we liked to call about 7.30 perhaps they could fit us in. We went a little early and were given a table and served immediately.

Chain View On Map
When travelling in France my wife and I generally stop at the Campanile chain of hotels and motels. They are modest, two star hotels usually very near motorway exits but the meals are mostly help yourself buffets. This means we can cherry pick the items that suit us - my wife is allergic to dairy products (only from a cow). Most of the main dishes are OK provided I have them without the sauce or gravy, which always seem to include flour. Of course, I cannot eat the bread which is served everywhere but I am finding that more and more of the major supermarkets are stocking some gluten-free products - they are usually in the dietetic aisle - so as well as taking my own bread and toaster bags I usually stock up with some of the gluten-free breads that are not available in the UK.
