The only thing on their menu that is truly gf is their Shrimp El Mojo, which is very good. one of their bartenders has Celiac and she told me nothing else there was safe. The tortillas are handmade and corn but made around other flours and wheat ingredients. The chips are made in a dedicated fryer but have a risk of cross contamination. the atmosphere is amazing and they have a great happy hour with $3 wine.
Dinner here was amazing! Expect to be blown away with ambiance and seriously professional food. Tapas style works good for my family and I and we ordered 5-6 choices. GF is marked on menu and staff ready to accommodate you. Had the herbed goat cheese tapenade terrine with zuchini instead of crostini. Rutabaga fries were seasoned, fried lightly and crunchy. Roasted stuffed dates were to die for. Menu choices reminded me of NYC restaurants like Bar Americain or Atlanta's Southern Arts. Had the local catch, mahi mahi, blackened and espresso rubbed beef rare. You will be pleasantly surprised at how the espresso and cocoa pair with the beef tenderloin. We ordered the sweet Brie cheese dish for dessert. Apple, craisins and brandy soaked macadamia nuts served again with zuchini chips. Great way to wrap up the night. We were too full for the GF flourless torte so we'll have to go back. This local gem is far far far better than the tired seafood buffet & resort seafood joints that dot Gulf Drive. Open also for lunch & bfast so we'll definitely be back. This cozy spot scores high for me. Leave the resort and venture down Gulf drive to be amazed.
A Must Try!!!! I was very pleasantly surprised with the selection and staff. To find out the owner suffers from Celiac and is very passionate with providing his customers with the best of what is sometimes really hard to find unless your making it at home. I'm here only for a few days but I guarantee that in any future visits this will be my go to place. It's a friendly atmosphere and great food.
There is a disclaimer on the menu next to the GF pizza saying that they do not recommend it to celiacs because they are a gluten kitchen. I understand with cross contamination n all. Nice of them to put it though.
They gave me the normal bread and accused me of lying about it, saying they'd only refund my meal if I physically brought the sandwich back. These people are assholes with no idea how to prepare gluten-free food. I vomited all night :(
I have recently tried this place within the last week. In fact I have been there a few times now :) yes 3 times in one week. I can not brag enough about this place. The fresh bread made there is off the charts...I will continue to buy my bread from the Bakery and will no longer buy bread from the store. They also have French Rolls that I will be trying soon. As far as the Blueberry Muffins they are dangerous because I could eat them all day... It's a good thing I drive across town to treat my self..lol This is a place that is a must try!
Oooooooooohhhhhhh mmmmmmyyyyyyyyyyy goooosssshhhhhh his everything bagel was amazing! Best I've had in 10 years! Just enough crust & fluffy & chewy all at once! I ate one in the store while picking out the rest of my yummy treats - and ate another as I was leaving & drove to my hotel! The next favorites were the fantastic cheesecake & the most decadent melt in your mouth Belgian chocolate dessert! Great selection & the owner wants you to try samples as you make your selections! Great service. I'm making time to go back and stock upon breads before I have to fly back home tomorrow to Colorado!! He even offered for me to call in the morning and set aside what I would like so he wouldn't be sold out before I drove to the airport! Worth a drive if you live in FLORIDA or are visiting!
I arrived after the restaurant has only been open for 2 months - while the hostess on the phone was not sure they could accommodate me - when my server seated me assured me he would see to it my meal was gluten free. The fresh halibut & brussel sprouts were AMAZING & the quinoa was unique & delicious! The general manager from introduced himself to me & I gave him feedback that celiacs who travel want to eat out safely & to spread the word!
bigger than average gluten free menu....there is a huge selection....even the "chocolate thunder from down under is gluten free" Brownie & ice cream ...they said they Can't help cross contamination but I don't think anyone can.
