Gluten free restaurant in Edinburgh

Hi there. Can anyone recommend a good gluten free restaurant near the Playhouse in Edinburgh? We are going to see Dirty Dancing next Tuesday and would like to take my daughter for a nice meal before hand, but she has coeliac, so quite difficult to find anywhere.

I can't think of any restaurant that would be gluten-free. However, most restuarants will cater for this if you tells them in advance.

What does she like to eat? What do you eat in Pitlochry?

For example, there are many good Italian restaurants in Edinburgh, but pasta is obviously out, but what about risotto? Salads? Excellent veggie restaurants....

Also, the Coeliacs Society website will have recommendations on where to eat out.

Henderson's is a vegetarian cafe restaurant also on Hanover Street. They have an extensive self service menu and lots of items are marked gluten free, vegan etc.

You should be able to get something suitable at Taste of Italy which is 100 yards north of the Playhouse. Much much handier. "Gluten free pasta available" and probaly enough choice of other ingredients knowing Italian cooking.



You could email Vittoria group and mention Coeliac ?

Definitely Vittorias or LA Favorita, both on Leith walk- very Coeliac friendly, best gluten free pizza in town at La Favorita and fab pizzas for all the rest of the family too.

Vittoria's and La Favorita are excellent and I eat at Vittoria's frequently. I mentioned Taste of Italy specifically because it's owned by the same family, shares a similar but slightly more limited menu, and is about 1 minute from the Playhouse. It's modern retro design - you won't see plaster pillars and italian momentos like you'd expect in most Italian joints - I hesitate to say Diner because that gives the wrong impression.
