Food and service was exceptional. They were so welcoming and had a Celiac menu (not simply GF but Celiac!). Chips are grilled since the fryelator isn't safe. I had the chicken quesadilla and it was so good!

This place is amazing! It is very celiac safe. Family friendly!! The wait staff knows all there is to know about celiac disease. We have two daughters very sensitive to gluten. This restaurant is family owned and Alan the son of the father who started the business cane to our table. This is typical. The wait staff told us the manager will personally speak with you to understand your preferences. They delivered! Right in the gas lamp district it is so nice to have a great option for celiac families! Thank you!!!!

I ate here while visiting San Diego and had a great experience! Manager came to talk to me and explained they had a separate area for grilling the tortillas and such and they did have a separate GF Menu. I had the “celiac street tacos” and they were delish.

The manager of this place is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and made me feel the most comfortable I have ever felt after being diagnosed celiac. I can’t recommend this place enough, not only is the food amazing but it’s so securely safe. The manager and waitress took time out of their busy night to explain every process they have with celiac customers and it was great. Amazing place

I contacted the restaurant ahead to make sure they could accomodate our celiac teen. Mgr. was very prompt and reassuring. Upon arrival from the hostess stand to waitress and kitchen, everyone was on their game. All the positive reviews on here hold true. The waitress even explained that the rice nonGF eaters order is different than the GF rice and was above and beyond helpful and friendly. Mgr. talked with us and checked on us a few times during the meal. We were well taken care of and daughter had a safe meal with no reactions....except of course happiness she could feel normal in a busy restaurant.

They have a separate gluten free menu, be sure to ask for one. The waitress immediately let the kitchen know that an order would be coming with gluten free needs. She was knowledgeable and helpful to me. Even got me some heated corn tortillas slices as an alternative for the chips. I ate the carnitas platter, it was delicious! No reaction!

This place was great! Separate celiac menu, lots of options. When they brought out the food , the server (unprompted) went through each thing, how it was prepared, why it was safe, etc. Will come back here every time I’m in San Diego.

As soon as I mentioned celiac the host went over all the gluten free options and the precautions they take with me. He was just as excited about the options as I was. All the meat is cooked on a dedicated grill and they change their gloves. Ate here twice. Tacos were amazing and the quesadillas were really good too. Didn’t get sick.

As all the reviews mention, they have a gluten free/celiac menu and as soon as you indicate celiac, the manager comes out to explain what is safe or not (shared fryer) and then they bring you baked corn tortillas and salsa - SO YUMMY! The food was delicious - highly recommend.

I have never been treated so well at any restaurant. The manager/owner, Bobby came out and talked about my needs. He understood the need to avoid cross contamination. I ordered from the official GF menu and they even made me some pan toasted corn tortillas as chips for my salsa and guacamole.They were so good my husband kept eating them after he got his chips.The food was excellent. I ordered a drink and, as I sometimes do, started looking up the ingredients after, thinking I would just give it to my husband if I couldn't have it. Well, before I could ask what brands of ingredients they use, Bobby was already at the bar looking it up and checking on it. He brought out the labels to read with me. Excellent food and even more amazing service. We will definitely return next time we are in San Diego. Highly recommend.

A must visit if you are I. The downtown San Diego / Gaslamp area. They have a dedicated celiac menu. I ate at the bar and Jaimy provided excellent service and was very knowledgeable about celiac. I had the and ceviche (comes with grilled corn tortilla chips) and carnitas street tacos. Both were amazing!!! Their margaritas are the perfect pairing to the meal. I highly recommend.

100% not Celiac friendly!!! Chose the option which states Celiac tacos but within 20 mins had a reaction for the first time in a year??? DO NOT eat here if you are Celiac, not worth the risk!

Owner Response


Good evening, I want to apologize for your reaction. Something obviously went wrong with your dish, which is not common at las hadas. I’m very sorry you had a reaction, I know you don’t recommend us but I would really like to make up for you getting sick if possible by coming in for another meal. We try to get to know everyone’s level of intolerance before serving by having a manager speak to the table, if we did not do this that is our fault and once again I apologize.

Excellent gluten free restaurant in an area seriously lacking in gluten free options. Dedicated gluten free menu and very knowledgeable staff. It’s the Gaslamp District so it’s loud, but that’s the only downside (for those who consider loud a downside).

This is hands-down the BEST service I have ever received as a celiac. My husband mentioned that I'm celiac while making a reservation. When we arrived, we were greeted with a celiac menu and the manager immediately came over (without us asking!) to explain their gluten-free protocol in detail and assure me that he'd be in communication with the kitchen. The waitress also assured us of the same thing. Chips are made in a shared fryer so I got grilled corn tortillas with my guac and they brought out separate salsas so my husband could dip his chips without cross-contaminating mine. It was hard choice cause everything on the menu looked delicious, fajitas were out of this world. My husband said his burrito was one of the best he had ever had, he said he felt bad telling me since I couldn't have a bite. 😂 THANK YOU SO MUCH, Las Hadas for outstanding service and going above and beyond! Can't wait to come back after I have this baby so I can try the drink specials!

Delcious carne asada fajitas. The staff did well to reassure me. I’m very sensitive to any cross contamination and didn’t get sick! Best yet- the meal was delicious. The chips are fried in a shared fryer, so they grill gluten free chips for you! Great spots for celiacs!

Incredibly safe restaurant for celiacs. Requested a gluten-free menu and was immediately asked by the host if I had celiac. The waiter let us know their chips were fried with gluten items and so the chef made special chips from grilled corn tortillas just for our table. The waiter recommended drinks safe for celiac and the food was AMAZING. The chicken quesadilla was delicious. Recommend going during happy hour, great deals. Overall a must-stop for safe and delicious gluten-free food in the Gaslamp District!

What a nice time eating this food. We were greeted my the manager and he wanted to make sure we go home feeling really well, and wanted to adjust the menu in any way to attend to our allergies. :) We got shrimp ceviche and jicama since i don’t have corn chips (grains). And we got the fish fajitas and added shrimp for more protein to share. We skipped all the cheese, butter, rice, and tortillas and asked for a lot of steamed broccoli instead. Very tasty food!

Found this place while on vacation. If you have a need for celiac friendly eateries then you know how difficult eating out can be! From the hostess to the waitress to the manager everyone was friendly and knowledgeable about celiac and the special precaution needed. The food was wonderful and for those of us who were able to order from regular menu the taco Tuesday menu hi the spot. The food was great and service was great as well. Definitely a 5 star experience!
