In the first floor premises that was once home to David Norris’s acclaimed restaurant, Doireann Barrett introduced excellence of a different kind when she opened Europe’s first gluten free restaurant here in 2012.
It’s an absolute boon for diners with gluten and wheat intolerance, but the real surprise is that everything is so delicious that it has equal appeal to all customers.
The menu offers the same kind of food as mainstream restaurants and includes many of the dishes that can be a challenge to coeliacs. You’ll find delicious soups, sandwiches, salads, lasagne, quiches and great desserts, plus a full range of coffees and smoothies - all gluten free, and can also be dairy free on request.
Everything is made on the premises, it’s good value and family friendly (children’s portions available), and staff are particularly pleasant and warm.
Very accessible and close to the centre of Tralee, it is worth a detour for the brown bread alone - and many of The Gluten Free Kitchen Company products are also supplied to other restaurants and retailers in the area, or can be ordered.
