Great Restaurant Experience For A Newbie

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have just had my first restaurant meal since being dx. I was a little nervous but I needed not worry. In each course there was an option for me. The olives were served with home made bread sticks but the chef served mine with toasted gluten-free bread. The mains was duck with chilli black rice and was wonderful. And dessert was a home made pistachio icecream that was also safe.

I hope my experiences are always this positive :) They made me feel welcome and not a freak or a nuisance !Later the owner even came over and chatted to me and asked me some questions about Celiac. :)

That sounds amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing this. Duck AND pistachio ice cream? I might have to come visit. :D

If you can post the name of the restaurant, that would be great. There are a lot of lurkers and travelers here, so you never know who might benefit from a recommendation.

Definitely!! There are plenty of Aussie's here. And most Americans have Australia on their list of places to visit some time in their lives. We've got very specific restaurant recommendations for New York and Las Vegas, so why not Australia? :D

And with such a kind and interested experience, they deserve an advert on this board!

Please, please post the name and location of the restaurant, we will be in Sydney for 5 days before boarding a cruise that will visit Melbourne and Hobart Tasmania then on to NZ and across the Pacific to Los Angeles in April 2008...I am already researching where it might be safe to eat. Any other Aussies that have suggestions please give a shout too. Sissy

It was Skilogallee Restaurant at Clare in South Australia. So a long way to go for pistachio iceceream Saz! :lol: They have a web page if you want to look. So pretty. Its by wineries and you sit at wooden trestle tables on the veranda and gaze at the countryside of gum trees, galahs & vineyards.

Sissy - my in laws have just done a holiday here from Eng and they loved Sydney and did the speed boat cruise of Sydney Harbor - James Bond style. You might like that! Someone has posted Sydney & Melb resturants - will have a hunt. Lots of choices here and food labels are accurate.
