Lefkada, Greece

I'm travelling to Lefkada this summer for two weeks. The place I'm staying in will have a kitchen but the group I'm travelling with will want to eat out and I was wondering what options were available for a celiac in Greece. I'll be near the village of Poros and it says there are tavernas there..

I was also wondering if someone who spoke Greek could help me? The gluten free travel dining card includes ingredients I'm allergic to and it would be nice to have a sheet of paper I can show to a server and work from there.

I went to Athens about 3 months after my diagnosis...eating gluten-free was not a problem. A lot of the food is naturally gluten-free and I stuck to grilled chicken/pork/fish (no sauce) and lots of veg. I have the Triumph Dining cards and the one in Greek worked really well. All the servers took the issue very seriously and on more than one occasion went to consult with the chef for recommendations. I didn't get glutened once! We did stick to 'nicer' restaurants because when my husband and daughter wanted souvlaki I took one look at the grill and figured it hadn't been cleaned in a very long time, and I had no idea what they might have cooked on it at some point! The best part was all the servers were really attentive to the issue and didn't seem to view me as someone who was 'weird' or 'bothersome.' Enjoy!

Greece is great, you will have no problems! They eat alot of wonderful veggies and meats that are cooked in olive oil, not breaded. I was there just last year and had no problems. Enjoy!

Thanks for your responses! I'm glad that it hasn't been a struggle for others.

My biggest issues are that I'm allergic to both dairy and rice. Do you think that will be a problem for me or will I still be able to stick to meats and vegetables?

I wasn't eating dairy when we went and it didn't pose a problem. As for rice...I don't remember eating any while I was there, and I'm a big rice fan. If it had been offered I would have eaten it! I just stuck to the the meat and veg, and didn't have a problem.
