Of course there are so many other restaurant/ cafe options depending on your needs and location in the Gold Coast, simply head to our Home Page and use the search function to find them.
#1. EDDY+WOLFF in Robina.
The kitchen is 100% Gluten Free with no chance of cross contamination. The staff are highly trained and will accommodate any dietary requests. Dining is based on two hour time slots, 3 and 5 course options but be warned it is very popular so you will need to book. EDDY+WOLFF is a very special venue and a hidden gem in the Gold Coast. I dined here with my husband for our 10th wedding anniversary recently and it was an incredible meal, impeccable service and was so lovely to not have to ask the usual Coeliac questions.

#2. Marie Anita’s in Mermaid Beach.
Marie Anita’s is Gold Coast’s most popular 100% Gluten Free cafe, located in a convenient location on the main highway and close to the beach. It is an award winning venue and a place not to be missed if you are Coeliac or simply enjoy Gluten Free Food. Head down for breakfast and grab so treats and bakery items to enjoy at home for later. Like all good Bakeries arrive early to get the popular bakery items before they sell out. Click here to view more info on our website.
#3. Jimmy Wah’s in Burleigh.
Jimmy Wah’s is a Modern Vietnamese restaurant in the heart of Burleigh Heads. It is just devine and a very popular venue so I recommend booking in advance. 90% of the menu is Gluten Free and delicious.

#5. Urban Eatery+Cafe and Urban Fish Market in Broadbeach.
Urban cafe and fish market are proudly 100% Coeliac friendly and have gluten-free kitchens. They are in the same building together with seating in the middle. Urban Fish Market specialise in quality fresh and cooked seafood and great service! Urban Fish market is the best and safest venue to get coeliac safe fish and chips on the Gold Coast.

It is prepared by expert chefs and served in great style, to capture the fun and authentic flavours of Mexico’s regional dishes. It is a fun and festive way to feed the family and catch up with friends. Feel safe in the knowledge that everything in El Burro Cantina’s kitchen is 100% GLUTEN FREE!

#7. Okky all GF Fish Pottsville (20mins from GoldCoast Airport)
100% Gluten Free menu and kitchen so no worries about cross contamination. Japanese infused, local and fresh fish, chips and salads. The batter is so lovely and not greasy like many other places I have tried. Menu highlights are Karaage chicken, sweet potato chips, grilled halloumi burger, black rice & roasted veg salad and so much more.
I can not recommend Okky more, I live close by and they are a regular for us. It can get very busy during weekends and peak season so recommend planning ahead. There is very little seating on the busy days but they are right near beautiful spots to take it and enjoy as a picnic.
#8. Xenia Greek in Coolangatta, Casuarina and Main Beach.
Xenia is my favourite place to catch up with friends for dinner and drinks on the Coast. Xenia have a beautiful Greek menu with loads of Gluten Free options and amazing cocktails. The staff are very coeliac aware and they have 3 locations around the Gold Coast. With an outstanding restaurant menu of traditional Greek food and drinks including local and Greek wines and the best cocktails on the coast, you will feel like your on a Greek Island.

#9. Millie Weirs Fish & Chippery in Paradise Point.
At Millie Weirs 95% of their menu can be made gluten and dairy free. They have dedicated Gluten Free areas and fryers, catering for Coeliac’s is there jam! Staff are very coeliac aware and the food is delicious. We go here regularly and its just a beautiful family friendly takeaway option. It is across the road from a beautiful park with many playgrounds and a calm swimming area for young kids- its dog friendly, great for picnics and bike/ scooter rides.

#10. Blendlove in Southport.
Blendlove is a space dedicated to the everyday love of ‘Soul Food’. Everything you see on their menu is plant-based, combining wholesome ingredients, of the purest quality. They do not use or create any food that has been highly processed, or use any foods containing refined sugar, making their menu quite unique! Most options are Gluten free or can be done gluten free. It is my favourite spot on The Coast for breakfast or brunch and the food has a level of detail that is next level. A must try is the “Snickerz Pancakes” they are gluten free and refined sugar free and just 🤤 !!! Also when in season the mango sticky rice with GF waffle cone is also devine. Oh and they are also dog friendly. Click here to view more on our website.
A few that didn’t quite make the list are, Waffle and Bean Dessert Bar in Coolangatta (Gluten free waffles to die for!) and Gluten Free Heaven in Broadbeach (but head there early or call before hand to avoid disappointment). Then there is always GFree Gluten Free Donuts- located all around the GC but I love to get them at the Surfers Paradise Markets on a weekend, its a lovely vibe down there for an evening stroll with your warm GF donuts 👌.
Happy Safe Coeliac Dining.
