As every coeliac knows, finding a restaurant where you feel safe to eat can be very tricky. This place was brilliant. The waiter explained in perfect English that they cook their fried food in a seperate frier for Coeliacs and most items on the menu...could be made gluten free with rice flour. I had gluten free calamari, chips, salad and a gluten free beer - absolute heaven! Cooked perfectly. They were also brilliant at accommodating our young children. Perfect lunch 5/5!More

We were told about this restaurant by fellow travellers and what a wonderful surprise - the food is exceptional, the staff friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is great. so here are Masterchefs and the food is not expensive with an array of large tapas.

The food is well prepared and fresh and tasty - exceeding its reputation. It is a very popular place for locals and tourists alike, and well worth the money. The service is very nice despite the busy hours all day long!

Strongly recommended for tapas and for food in general. Safe choice in case of intolerances (to gluten and lactose in my case). Comfortable for eating alone - generous portions - go for half a portion to try more things. Simple yet delicious, homemade look &...feel, for frequent meals. Very attentive personnel. Great experience!More

Really enjoy this restaurant. It has a wide menu of traditional Spanish dishes and the staff are always friendly and helpful. It has a large garden area, which is great for families and couples alike. It’s also great for a drink and tapas up front...in the bar.More

Not sure but I would say no. As previous answer I’m sure the outside terrace would be ok.
