Central Station, Zurich View On Map
Their gluten-free pizza is very nice. call them in advance to check availability, or you call them the day before.

Au Gratin
Bahnhofplatz, Zurich View On Map
Gluten-free items are clearly marked on the menu and they had menus available in English. Technically, an au gratin is any dish baked with a topping of seasoned breadcrumbs and cheese. However, many of the gratins here did not ordinarily come with breadcrumbs and so were gluten free "as is." I had the "France Gratin" with basil, zucchini, tomatoes, and mozzarella. (Sounds more Italian than French to me, but then again, French Fries aren't particularly French either.) Either way, it was a hearty and delicious meal.

Swiss Chuchi
Lindenhof, Zurich View On Map
Our first meal in Switzerland was at Swiss Chuchi ("Swiss Kitchen") conveniently located across the plaza from our hotel. We chose it for convenience, but it turned out to be a great success. I really wanted cheese fondue, but I asked about it fully expecting to be told "not for you." Amazingly, the waiter not only knew what "gluten free" meant, but already knew which fondues I could eat and said he would bring out potatoes instead of bread to dip in the fondue. What a great idea! It was absolutely delicious. The gluten-eating children both ordered veal, which was something new to them.

Eastwest Hotel
Paquis-Navigation, Geneva View On Map
I know a lot of people seem to think that just because some where is a four star hotel they will automatically give you what you want. While this is true some of the time, this is not always the case. So I don't take it as a given that just because I am staying somewhere that looks nice on the website I will automatically get my request for my particular item, in this case gluten free bread. In fact I still get quite excited when hotels provide me with gluten free bread.

Fortunately the nice people at East West did provide me with gluten free bread. Best of all they did not leave it lying around open next to the gluten bread for it to get the breakfast crumbs into it. From spying the yellow packaging, I am going to assume it was a Schar bread, it was seeded and had a near malt taste about it. It was good and nice to eat unrefreshed. All in all it gave my breakfast a bit more substance so I was happy.

Le Lacustre
Jardin Anglais, Geneva View On Map
I can honestly say I was so pleased we found Le Lacustre, it was friendly, most importantly warm and it was hub of activity. It felt like nearly everyone in Geneva decided this was the place to have lunch and why not? The food was excellent. Normally I would question my sanity going in to an Italian restaurant for lunch where there is no mention of gluten free pasta but there was no need to fear. In addition to gluten pasta and gluten pizza they had a wide selection of grilled meat and fish. It was only problematic if you were vegetarian. However I did note that they whipped up some 'not on the menu' items for the people sat adjacent to us.

I opted for the grilled tuna, which I was assured was just put on the grill and nothing else, with a side of risotto (salad is just not attractive when you are feeling wet and soggy). My tuna was nicely seared but the risotto was something else. It was creamy, it was cheesy, it was hot; it was comforting. In fact it was the best risotto I have ever had in my life. I still can't figure out what made that risotto so special but it just was. If I ever go back to Geneva I absolutely will go back to Le Lacustre in a heart beat.

Au Gratin
Bahnhofplatz, Zurich View On Map
We stayed at the Hotel Schweizerhof Zurich on Bahnhofplatz which was beautiful. Only about 50 metres away was the Au Gratin restaurant on the first floor above a Heineken bar. They had an extensive range of gluten free options on their menu and many that could be adapted. The food was divine and the atmosphere was very comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful and we were given an English menu. 10 out of 10.

Urban Bio
, Geneva View On Map
A gem of a market that while not exclusively gluten-free has an incredible variety of gluten-free goods. Everything from croissants to snacks to breads is on hand and the prices are actually pretty decent (remember this is Geneva though). Definitely worth a visit if nothing else than to pick-up a few nibbles for your hotel room.

La Terrasse
Eden Palace au Lac Hotel, Montreux View On Map
Idyllic al fresco dining along the shore of the Lake. Lovely ambience, good service and food. Service staff understood food restrictions. No gluten-free menu but a range of menu items either gluten-fre eor made to order gluten-free. Perfect to be seated just before sundown and enjoy the show.

Harry's New York Bar
Fairmont Le Montreux Palace, Montreux View On Map
This is my all-time go-to place when in Montreux. If I am not there at least once an evening I am there twice. Now, hands down the bartenders mix the best cocktails in town but Harry's also serves a full menu ranging from snack-type nibbles to proper dinners. Unfortunately, in my experience, the gluten-free options often contain wither fish or shellfish which I am hyper-allergic to. But fear not, each restaurant can work with you to ensure that your meal will be safe given your needs. I had two meals this time around and both were amazing.

The real standout though was when I was presented with a WARM bread basket filled with assorted gluten-free rolls. As they know me there, I didn\'t even need to ask for the special menu or the bread - they simply remember and spring into action. More importantly they will answer any question you might have and go to the kitchen to speak with the chefs to ensure that you can dine without worry - even offering up recommendations.

Le Palmeraie
Fairmont Le Montreux Palace, Montreux View On Map
Quite possibly the most decadent gluten-free full-breakfast you will ever come across. Le Palmeraie is the glass-enclosed breakfast room that looks out over the Grand Rue and Lake Leman. It is truly THE place for a fabulous breakfast in Montreux. While rooms at the Palace are pricey they are worth every penny and if you can get a rate that include breakfast - jump on it - it is well worth the added expense vs. having to pay separately for breakfast.

My first morning I was presented with a silver tray laden with a selection of gluten-free breakfast items. Cereals, bread, cookies - you name it, it was on there. But as past experience demonstrated, the piece de resistance is not on the tray. What might that be you ask? Well, it is the famed gluten-free croissants that I quite literally dream about. Both plain and chocolate varieties are on hand. There is also a selection of gluten-free bread and rolls that are available as well.

The "normal" part of the full-breakfast is an impressive host of items both hot and cold, sweet and savory that also includes some naturally gluten-free items as well. There is also a made-to-order station where omelets and eggs are available. This is the first proper breakfast that likely has just as much for gluten-free diners as it does for those with no restrictions.
