Thus, a second purpose for this blog is to document any successful or disappointing glutenfrei dining experiences.
The first restaurant we tried was Cassius Garten, which I wrote about in the first blog post and which I was very pleased with the selection and knowledge/information provided by the staff & menu.
Today we hiked Drachenfels and discovered that both the Drachenfels restaurant (at the top of the hill) as well as the Drachenberg cafe (at the castle), have menus that are notated for allergens & gluten. We ate at the restaurant at the top and found the food to be very good. I was not as confident in the staff's knowledge or care regarding cross contamination. We ate outside on the patio and did not have a dedicated server there. It may be better to make a reservation to sit inside the restaurant, where the wait staff could assist with specific needs & communication. We saw at least one other restaurant/outdoor cafe on the hill, but its menu was not notated for allergens.
Outdoor Drachenfels restaurant with a view.
(The printed menus with allergen info are only inside, but the food outside is the same as inside)
Riesling Suppe. Would be gluten free without the croutons.
Thankfully this was my meal and not B's so I ate it anyway.
Herring with cream sauce and pan sautéed potatoes and small salad. Gluten Free.
