Gluten Free Tenerife Spain
Although you’ll struggle to find any completely gluten-free Tenerife restaurants that cater entirely to Coeliacs, there are plenty of restaurants that serve a decent selection of gluten-free options. Click To Tweet

Tenerife is a tiny volcanic island off the northwestern coast of Africa which, along with Gran Canaria and five other small islands, makes up the Canary Islands. Home to year-round gorgeous weather and a wonderful landscape brimming with everything from natural beaches and hiking trails to purpose-built resorts and award-winning water parks, this island is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe, visited by millions of tourists from around the world each year.

One of the best parts about being on holiday in gluten free Tenerife is eating out and trying the local food. And although you’ll struggle to find any completely gluten-free Tenerife restaurants that cater entirely to Coeliacs, there are plenty of restaurants that serve a decent selection of gluten-free options.

To help you get started, here are some of my favourite gluten-free Tenerife restaurants which serve up delicious eats:

Best Gluten-Free Tenerife Restaurant for Breakfast

Olive Garden Deli

Address: Floor 1, Avenida San Francisco, 6, Los Cristianos

Whatever you do, make sure you visit Olive Garden Deli on an empty stomach because you’ll need it! This homely café serves some of the most amazing breakfasts in Tenerife, including a host of gluten-free options. From light and fluffy American-style waffles drizzled with maple syrup to homemade gluten-free toast sliced into huge wedges and slathered with butter, the portions are so generous here you’ll end up taking half of your meal back to your room for later!

Best Gluten-Free Tenerife Restaurant for Lunch

Milano Eis Café

Address: Urbanizacion Playa Fañabe, 9, Costa Adeje

One of the best places on the island if you’re a fan of Italian food, Milano Eis Café offers a full gluten-free menu brimming with pizzas and kinds of pasta, which contain absolutely no gluten at all. Better yet, there’s even a couple of gluten-free beers to choose from to wash down your lunch. If you’re not in the mood for Italian, there are plenty of Canarian grilled fish and meat dishes which can be made gluten-free, too.

Best Gluten-Free Tenerife Restaurant for an Afternoon Snack

Harriet’s Tea Room and Restaurant

Address: Local 56 Central Commercial, Playa Fanabe, Costa Adeje

This typical British tea room is a wonderful place to visit for a comforting taste of home. From rich fruit cakes loaded with sultanas and decadent brownies drizzled with chocolate sauce to sandwich cakes piled high with fresh cream and crumbly almond slices with buttery flaked nuts, Harriet’s Tea Room and Restaurant offers a huge selection of gluten-free baked goods. If you’re in the mood for something a little more hearty, they also serve sandwiches, burgers, jacket potatoes and salads.

Best Gluten-Free Tenerife Restaurant for Dinner

Union Café Bar

Address: Avenida Juan Carlos I, 33, Arona

Offering up the perfect blend of gluten-free dishes and healthy eats, Union Café Bar is the place to go when you want to indulge without piling on the pounds. They’ve got a huge gluten-free menu which includes gourmet vegan burgers, freshly prepared salads, sweet potato chips and loads more nutritious, gluten-free twists on traditional fast food. If you visit in the morning, you’ll also find a plethora of healthy breakfast options, plus smoothies and exotic fruit juices.

If Tenerife is on your travel bucket list and you’re worried you’ll end up going hungry, don’t be! The food scene might be a little behind the times when it comes to restaurants offering exclusively gluten-free food, but you’ll still find plenty of choices when dining out, no matter where you go. And if all else fails, you can always put on a polite smile and ask the chef if they’ll make you something special.

Terre a Terre

This veggie haven first opened its doors back in 1993, and it’s been going strong ever since. If you’re heading here we recommend trying their gluten free afternoon tea. Well, you can’t go to the UK without tucking into afternoon tea, can you?

Chilli Pickle

If you’re craving Indian cuisine Chilli Pickle is the perfect place to get your fix. This Indian restaurant is fabulous, and the staff are very knowledgeable about gluten-free diets. We loved the tandoori quail – so tender and flavourful, and absolutely no gluten involved! They also serve gluten-free beer!

Prestonville Arms

The Great British pub is a real institution, but it’s rare to find one that caters for gluten-free diets. The Prestonville Arms goes against the grain, with a kitchen that’s 100% gluten-free! So, you can relax, indulge and eat absolutely anything you fancy. We’ll see you at the bar.

Black Mocha

Seeing all the sights of Brighton can be exhausting, so make time for a pit stop at this quirky cafe. Every day there’s a new selection of gluten free cakes and savoury bakes on sale here. They also do a cracking dark hot chocolate.

Cloud 9

If you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth you’ll love Cloud 9. There are two outposts of this cake shop in Brighton, you can find them in The Lanes and in Kensington Gardens. It’s a real festival of sugar here, with a vast selection of gluten free cakes and cupcakes, as well as vegan bakes and ice cream. The chocolate cheesecake brownies are not to be missed.

It’s all about the tea and cake at Little Bird, a great Brighton cafe catering for coeliacs and those on gluten-free diets.

You can get your cake to take away, so make sure you grab some for the train journey back to London.

Pizza Face

We couldn’t talk about gluten-free food in Brighton without mentioning Pizza Face! This is a fabulous restaurant serving gluten-free pizzas with a huge array of different toppings. Our favourite is Jakub – an indulgent pizza topped with chorizo, salami, caramelised onion, mascarpone, dried chilli and oregano. We’re drooling already, and we’re not ashamed to admit it.

Wolfies of Hove

Fish and chips is a British classic, especially at the seaside! Often those on gluten-free diets are forced to forgo this scrumptious treat, but not in Brighton. At Wolfies and Hove you can tuck into gluten free fish and chips and even gluten-free battered sausages, made with German bratwurst. There’s a separate fryer for all gluten-free products so you don’t need to worry about cross-contamination, either.

Bagelman

If you’re on the hunt for a quick lunch in Brighton you can’t go wrong at Bagelman. The gluten-free bagels are delicious and they have a wonderful choice of fillings. You don’t see gluten-free bagels very often so this is one Brighton café you won’t want to miss!

Gluten Free Vancouver Canada

Vancouver is a bustling and vibrant city on the west side of Canada, situated in the province of British Columbia or BC as is known to the locals. Stand at the harbour and take in the view of the snow topped mountains in the distance and be amazed at just how clean the city is – for me it is a city that always presents itself with assured confidence.

The Vancouver skyline is graced with modern high rise office buildings, art galleries, cute museums and a feast of restaurants to tickle everyone’s tastebuds, Vancouver is a city of diverse choice and gentle ambiance.

Canadians are known for their healthy outlook on food and as a country, they were way ahead in offering organic food and food to cater for dietary requirements. It is believed the USA seem to ‘borrow’ a lot of healthy food trends from their close neighbours.

We all want choice, but cities can feel overwhelming. For gluten free food lovers, finding the best eateries can be exhausting and frustrating!

I love the thrill of a new city, the anticipation of what food I will devour as well as the possibility of finding a recipe or dish I have not eaten before.

For me, Gluten free food is about the ingredients! Eating a great meal has the ability to make me feel like I am not missing out, my taste buds should not have to pay the price just because I cannot eat a ‘breadstick’ or an exquisite dish of the day – ‘lobster ravioli’.

Just because I am gluten free does not mean my food has to taste or look any different to anyone else’s – Right?

I am happy to fall across awesome places to eat when I visit a new place, but there is nothing like a few recommendations to aid my decision, especially when I am hungry and just want to eat.

Vancouver offered so many great places to eat and is a city with diverse cultures, all of which certainly offered an eclectic mix of food.

I have carried out some of the hard work (tasting, devouring and generally eating lots of food) for you, so please check out my list of fabulous places I felt worthy of a place in gluten free Vancouver.
