I'm a slight coeliac (my mother had it and I react to wheat, but not as seriously), I just ate food that I knew wouldnt contain wheat. Mostly thats quite easy to guess, you just have to watch the sauces. Carrefour do a range of gluten free foods - not the same as eating out tho

Hi Jo

Thanks yes food shop is no bother at all sorted with that. It's just eating out he wants something different rather than the typical steak. Wok is great in la cala de Mijas so might end up going back there but was just seeing if their was anywhere different.

Not that I know of. In fact, in general I found the Spanish restaurants to be quite unsympathetic to dietary requirements. I used to ask if things had flour in them, but the waitress would simply shrug. I dont know if anyone else knows any different?????

Okay cool thanks, well we haven't had a problem at all with coffee shops or a bite to eat at lunch time that's been no problems whatsoever they all understand. It's just finding a restaurant but we have wok so will go back there.

Spain is 100 times better than the uk for gluten free products so he is happy just being here especially since McDonald's are sin gluten, it had been years since he had one so that was nice.

Thanks for your help :)

To be honest....If there were restaurants that offer consideration for this, I am sure they would take advantage of advertising the fact. Also, I am sure that people who had experienced respect and consideration of this issue, would surely let others know.

Just my opinion.
It seems to me in both cases they dont! I guess being a coeliac is a minority issue. Even in the UK its not easy to go out to dinner. My mother had it severely and we used to have to stick to very plain foods - even things like roast potatoes, gravy, some chips, meats.... they had "hidden" flour in them and that would trigger mother off.... And the waitresses didnt always know or indeed care!!!!

I guess it's all down to honest advertising!
