I do not recommend this place for celiacs. The wait staff is not very knowledgeable and they brought me the wrong food. Definitely do not order anything fried.

The server was knowledgeable on what was GF and would be safe. I had plantain tamale with pork. It was delicious! Will definitely eat here again!

They don’t have a specific gluten free menu but there are GF options. I enjoyed the pollo al ajillo with arroz guisado. The chicken was so soft and tender, melted in the mouth type. Yet very flavorful. Had no issues eating this dish with my gluten intolerance or any other of my food sensitivities. I also tried a bite of the carne guisado - also yum! The staff was friendly, ready to answer questions. Sadly - no desert options if you are GF + DF like me.

No luck at all. No one knew anything about celiac and wouldn’t take the time to talk to me about it anyway. So far I have found nothing in San Juan.

Awesome, authentic Puerto Rican cuisine. Most of the menu is gluten free naturally and the staff was able to help me identify items made without flour. I felt fine after our meal here!

This is a little place filled with locals. English is spotty and there is no gluten free menu, however, they do know their allergies and the vast majority of the menu is gluten free. It is fantastic, local Puerto Rican food!!!

Celiac friendly?

Yes
