If you’re after a restaurant with a great atmosphere, you can’t go wrong at Baobab. This cafe is brilliant for gluten free travellers looking for a party atmosphere in which to dine. There are live music events aplenty, and of course tonnes of great dishes for gluten free travellers to enjoy.

Shepherd

With its farm-to-plate ethos that’s oh so trendy right now, Shepherd is a must visit for gluten free travellers. We loved trying their gluten free dishes including the kimchi fried rice and the rather unusual sweet corn ice cream.

Charley Noble

Charley Noble has a gluten free menu that’ll make your jaw drop! It’s enormous, so even the pickiest gluten free traveller will be well catered for here. The restaurant’s speciality is fire-based cooking, so make sure you try their succulent chargrilled meat dishes.

Sen Sen

This intriguing little Chinese cafe is a bit of a hidden gem, but make sure you seek it out if you have a hankering for Asian cuisine. The owner is very knowledgeable about gluten free diets and can offer a veritable smorgasbord of naturally gluten free Chinese dishes.

The iconic dish of this Wellington restaurant is its kedgeree, and we’ve got good news for you! It’s gluten free! They even serve it with gluten free bread, and it’s so good you might be forgiven for thinking the staff have given you normal bread by accident. What more could you want?
