Hi Welderman,

Sorry not to write the name of a few restaurants, but our suggestions goes to the main food that your daughter can eat and what she must avoid has food. Restaurants changes a little bit the dishes during the week and must of them will speak english for sure.

Always ask for something specific for you daugher, please have a list of what she can eat and present it to the people at the restaurant. I hope that this help you. All the best, have a nice stay in Portugal.

take some travel cards to hand to the chef or waiter that explains in Portuguese your daughters condition,so they can prepare food accordingly, they are printable on line from coeliac web sites

Here's a link for the card: http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/portuguese

Whereas shopping is concerned, there are two supermarkets which carry a fair amount of gluten free products.


Pingo Doce

Restaurant Picolo Mondo does gluten free pastas.

thanks for all the help, and advice. I really appreciate it, regarding the cards, I will be printing a few of these off to take with us. Really looking forward to visiting Alvor and Portugal, for the first time.

thanks for the tips, and I`ll look out for the supermarkets mentioned, and I`ll try to find them on google maps. we are in a hotel with breakfast only, but will be eating out mainly, though getting some `snack` type food in also, as our hotels rooms all have cooking facilities and fridge etc, staying at the Alvor Village Hotel.
