    Bricks Restaurant in the Legoland Hotel is amazing. Chef Dan patiently answered all of our questions and brought us food from the back in any instance where we were concerned about the buffet. On top of that he brought us a bag full of Lucy's cookies and a GF brownie. Thank you Chef Dan!!

    We had very mixed experiences at Legoland. Pizza and Pasta Mania does have GF pasta and pizza options. You have to request that the kitchen make it for you. Apparently the first person I spoke to didn't relay the information to the cooking staff properly. When I went to check, it hadn't even been started. It still took another 30 minutes or so after that. So make sure that you ask to speak to the manager or head chef. Our next meal stop was Wolves Den Grill in the Waterpark. I confirmed that the hot dog weiner was gluten free and ordered it without the bun. I didn't see this but my sister did...the kitchen sent it out on the bun and then someone took it out of the bun before serving it to us! Our final meal was at the Knights Smokehouse BBQ and they were EXCELLENT. Knew the gluten free options and were very conscientious about avoiding possible cross contamination.

    We really enjoyed our visit at Legoland. We ate lunch at Pizza Mania. We all ordered individual pizzas and my celiac son got a freshly made gluten free cheese pizza. He said it was good and ate the whole thing. It looked like a similar consistency as udis. There were many other places that had gluten free options as well. Even the little drink carts had gluten free chips and snacks on them. We also got granny's apple fries which are also gluten free. They were delicious and we all loved them. I did my research ahead of time, to look at our options for food. For anyone who has not been to Legoland, at the entrance just inside they have park maps and also a food menu brochure. I thought that was great so we could see where we could all eat in the park.

    My son and I are GF. We spent 2 days at the park (3 nights at the hotel). The hotel has a breakfast buffet included. Just talk to one of the employees and they will run down everything that is GF - tons of options - and will even make you things like pancakes, muffins, toast, etc. In the park we ate lunch at 2 different places - the Garden Cafe and Urban Kitchen. Garden cafe has yummy bread and can do the kids kit gf and I had a yummy turkey-bacon-avocado sandwich GF. Urban Kitchen had quite a few choices. My son had a hot dog with GF bread. They prep and toast the bread in a separate GF toaster. I had the chicken stir fry. Ask for it GF. Someone else comes over with a clean pan, clean utensils and makes it all GF while you watch. They have GF soy sauce too! It was delicious. Takes a little extra time but totally worth it.

    Great pizza! Love that it's the same price and still all-you-can eat for GF. The manager came out and talked to me and made us 3 GF pizzas!

    So sad the fries at Castle Burger are no longer GF. When I asked what they changed she was unsure. The offered chip in place of fries.

    Even if you don't have kids (but we do), eat here. The chef will escort you through the entire buffet and tell you what's safe and what's not. Lots of options/variety. They might even give you a few boxes of cookies to take home... 😋

    Very helpful staff and very tasty pizza and pasta (and plenty of it). Just need to wait a bit for the cooking.

    I know everyone raves about legoland being GF so we were very excited to try! And first off I have to say they do have many options. But we had such a HORRIBLE experience at the all-u-can eat pasta/pizza place it overshadowed our whole experience. We are a Gf family due to 3 of us having severe allergies, so we were thrilled to find good reviews of the restaurant. Well there are 6 of us and we asked for gf pizza and pasta, we talked directly to the manager that day and he seemed bothered by our request and was not informative or helpful at all. He seemed to want us to guess at what our options were and seemed bothered by our request for gf garlic bread too. And it's not a cheap option for 6 of us so we weren't sure how much to order for us all to eat and he gave no help in trying to figure that out either. So we finally ordered 4 pizzas and 4 pasta dishes. He kept saying, "the pasta takes a really long time". Yes I know I cook it often, and it's really not that long. Well the pizza came out in about 20 minutes, not a big deal. Was yummy. No pasta, 10 minutes later he comes out and says, "it will be about 10 more minutes, the pasta takes a really long time." Ok we smiled. And waited, and waited. My GF allergic 10 year old really wanted her buttered pasta and so we continued to wait. No manager ever came back to the table. We were missing precious park time for my kids. After an HOUR WE FINALLY JUST WALKED OUT. Obviously you pay ahead of time. It's experiences like this that make it very hard for kids with allergies to not feel bad or as if they are a bother to people who are preparing their food. It was so disappointing.

    We ate at the Market near the Driving School. Chef made my stir fry especially gluten free, cooked in a clean pan and gave me a brand new huge bottle of gluten free soy sauce. The meal was delicious, even my non gf hubby loved it. They also offer all sandwiched on gf bread, even pb&j! Picky hubby said this is the best food he's ever had at an amusement park! Oh and can't forget yummy GF apple fries at Granny's! SO glad I got to partake and not just sit and watch everyone enjoy!

    Wow is all I can say! Legoland was the best amusement park we have ever been to when it comes to having allergies. Everyone was so attentive to our allergies and helpful. The chef even made a plate for my son that has celiac and a dairy allergy. They also walked us thru all the food options that were safe! Thank you legoland for making our experience a good one, and making mommy not have to worry the whole time.

    The buffet is amazing! Patrick, the manager in duty, was extremely knowledgable abt gluten and cross contamination and was so nice and helpful. The gluten free pizza and pasta got rave reviews from my gluten free kids. And the non gluten free food is really good too!!

    Every restaurant pretty much has gluten free! There Granny Smith apple fries, the parks known snack, is even gluten free! I had the hamburger, and it was good good! Didn't taste bad at all, and it was actually not bad on the price! :-)

    Perhaps the best Gluten Free Amusement Park we've ever been to!The Staff at the Pizza and Pasta Buffet near the Tecnic X coaster was awesome!The manager, Patrick, personally served us 2 yummy GF pizzas and 2 macaroni dishes. Fresh Parm and butter pasta was the best. The salad bar was fresh, clean and GF friendly. They couldn't guarantee GF salad dressings due to proximity to croutons but safe vinegar and oil were available. All you can eat GF for about $10 adult and 8$ for kids for lunch. Great deal, great GF meal!We also at at Castle Burger and enjoyed the GF buns on our cheeseburgers. The Apple Fries were cinnamon goodness and GF as they are just corn starch cinnamon sugar and apples. Not sure of the vanilla whipping Creame. Get done and watch the kids play at the climbing castle nearby.
