Gluten free restaurants in west Tenerife

Restaurants in Adeje

Just spent last week in Costa Adeje in Tenerife and here is a list of my favourite gluten free places to eat so far. In general I was blown away with the amount of GF options in the supermarkets and staff at most restaurants were knowledgeable about Gluten Free. 


Piscis Terraza

I was recommend to go to La Caleta by our accommodation host when we arrived in Tenerife and it did not disappoint. La Caleta is a lovely little fishing village just north of Adeje.

There were a good few GF options on the menu but I ordered the grilled salmon and I was the best I've ever had. My boyfriend ordered the lobster which was also gluten free so I got to try that too and it was amazing.

It is definitely worth a trip here especially if you are staying in Adeje.

Pipo Cafe

This is such a nice little cafe and bar along by the sea in Adeje. Once I seen the nachos on the menu and was told that they were gluten free I was set on getting them. They were really tasty and came with chilli con carne and melted cheese. They also had loads of gluten free tapas options, so I hope to go back and try this next time.

The menu had a sign for 'gluten free beer', however when I asked the waitress, she told me they were out of it right now, that was a bit disappointing. However, the food was amazing and I would go back again.

Cosy Cafe

This is a lovely little cafe very close to the beach. They had a sign up that said gluten free ribs but they were currently all out. I ordered and omelette with extra bacon and it was really tasty.

La Terrazza del Mare

Started off the holiday super healthy with a big grilled chicken salad by the beach. The menu had the gluten free symbols on it and pictures of the dishes. They also served drinks in these boot shaped glasses which was really cool.

I tried out this sushi restaurant and it was delicious. They had gluten free soy sauce which was a huge bonus too. I got the Philadelphia rolls, salmon maki, nigiri and seaweed salad.

Restaurants in Los Cristianos

La Piazzetta

Fantastic pizza in La Piazzetta! This is definitely worth a visit, the gluten free base was lovely and crispy and the chef makes it in house. The sauce and toppings were just incredible and super fresh. I ordered the Diavola Pizza. They also have gluten free Dorada which I was really excited to try as everyone else on the holiday had been drinking Dorada and I didn't even realise their was a gluten free version.

Boat trip out to see Dolphins and Whales

I researched a lot of boat trips for Costa Adeje and this one had the most 5 star reviews so I booked it and it was amazing. We booked the 4pm trip so that we could see the sunset.

After I booked I message them to say I would need gluten free for 1. I wasn't really expecting much so I did have something to eat beforehand just in case. However, I was pleasantly surprised as there was lots of lovely tapas I could eat, the Spanish omelette was the best I've had over here so far.

There was also free flowing Cava and beer and non alcoholic drinks. We got top see some dolphins, swam in the sea and seen a beautiful sunset.
