I can only help you with UK based restaurants but there is a chain called Cafe Rouge which has a gluten free menu and a very good one at that.  They are good with CC issues and are very knowledgable, in general, of Celiac Disease. I am an extremely sensitive, diagnosed Celiac and have never gotten sick there.  Over a few trips I ate there about 5 times.  It is French style peasant food and very good.  Google the name and you can find out what cities they are in but they are all over the place in England.


I have been to the last 4 cities on your list and can honestly say it is very easy to eat gluten-free in Britain.  Most people will know exactly what you are talking about.  Edinburgh was easy and you can't go wrong with their salmon.....some of the best in the world.  I found it not very hard to walk into any restaurant and get a really gluten-free meal.  Eat simply and you should be fine.  No language barrier unless you don't speak good English but I doubt that's a problem for you. :)


Here are some links for you...I am going across the Pond in September so did some recent research.


http://www.leonrestaurants.co.uk/menu/  Haven't eaten here before but wanted some cheaper eats for London.  Menu looks pretty good.


http://www.da-mario.co.uk/  Haven't eaten here either but these restaurants I got off a Celiac Society website so the source was good.  Not sure if they have a specific gluten-free menu but are willing to adapt their menu items for gluten-free.


http://www.telegraph...estaurants.html  I aim to try some of these when I go over.  Not sure what your budget is but if you go to a higher end place, the odds of a gluten hit are slim to none.  I have been eating in the UK since 1994 and was diagnosed in 2005...haven't had much of a problem in many trips.


http://www.mermaidstail.co.uk/  I had gluten-free Fish and Chips here on my last trip in 2010 and it was fabulous.  They have a dedicated fryer for the gluten-free stuff.


 http://www.hazev.com/index.htm  I am trying this one for the first time in September.  It was recommended to me by UK friends.  I contacted the manager and they were great.  Told me to come in and they would make sure I got a gluten-free meal and already told me what items I couldn't have. There is a lot on the menu that can be made gluten-free and it looks fabulous.


Always ask to speak to the manager for your needs and that should work well for you.  You can Google the other cities and get listings for gluten-free food.  I visited them pre-gluten-free so can't give you any more for those places.  Have a wonderful time!  You've chosen some amazing places to visit and I hope you have as good of a time as I did!

There's a gluten free bakery in Paris called Helmut Newcake.  They have a lunch menu and sell food to go, as well as having a ton of pasteries and other baked goods.  Very tasty and owner is celiac. 


Paris also has a certified gluten free restaurant called Noglu that I haven't tried.  I think it's only been open for a few months.


Celiac isn't really well known in France yet, but restuarant cards should get you what you need.  I ate a lot of grilled fish, steak, french fries and salad and was fine.

We were in London two years ago.  I thought it was as easy to be gluten free there as in most big cities in the U.S.   (I live in Minneapolis and it's very easy to be gluten free here...probably because I mostly eat at home)


The one thing about London/England was that we could always get a steak and chips (fries) or potatoes in pubs that never caused a big problem.  Also, we determined that if we could find an Indian restaurant we were generally good to go.   The only thing I can say is that when we got home after two weeks in England I didn't eat steak or potatoes for several months.   I did pack up a lot of bars from home that I carried along with me.  My little girl and I are both gluten free and we made it through two weeks without issue.  (Except losing a little weight...because it's definitely harder to eat)
