Disappointed to find out even though the foods are listed as GF on the menu, they were not coeliac safe. Asked to find out what was and had the choice of a burger or chips. I had walked all the way to this restaurant with my family while on a holiday with hope of a yummy meal. $125 and very disappointed. The non gluten free hotdogs my ten year old had were soaked in oil, the pork belly was dripping in oil also, burger was average, chips were good though! If you want chips, they have a dedicated fryer for them and they’re crispy and tasty.

Plenty of gluten free options on menu, plus most of the desserts in the cabinet were gluten free too. Also have gluten free kids options. Waitress was happy to answer any questions and went and double checked with the kitchen when unsure. Chips can be done in seperate fryer

A few good GF options, including chips in a separate fryer. Cealiac wife had no issues. Unfortunately food is just not very good here (eaten here a few times), and a bit pricey.

Coeliac safe deep frier and knowledgeable stuff. Downside for me is inconsistent food quality. I've been at least half a dozen times and mostly food has been cold, small or just under pa. It's great for kids if your just ordering fries. Best not to go when it's busy.

Had a beautiful stone grill tonight and GF coeliac friendly fries which were such a treat (dedicated fryer). 2 for 1 stone Grill Tuesday nights. Was delicious and lots of GF desserts too (if you can fit it in) πŸ˜€

Highly recommend Southern Cross Bar and Restaurant Wellington City. Dedicated fryer and so many CF GF options. First time my daughter has had fries in a long time. Shared an amazing Stone Grill. Had a beautiful breakfast and an even more amazing tuna poke bowl. On holiday in Wellington and have visited many times as my daughter feels "safe" here and has so many options. Staff friendly and knowledgeable and 2 minute walk from our hotel. Lucky us to find this place. It's made our trip so much easier and enjoyable as we've had a few disappointments elsewhere.
