Gluten Free Lunch in Barcelona with a View... and Dessert!,

Due to its proximity to where I studied in 2014 and where I now work, I have frequented Insolita Gea a number of times. The first time I went there was a happy accident - my friend needed coffee, we asked about the menu and lo and behold they knew all about celiac disease and gluten-free food!
This is not a dedicated gluten-free restaurant, but like many other places in Spain and Europe, celiac disease is understood and chefs and waiters alike know to take it seriously. Here, the "menu del dia" or daily menu of starter, entree, drink, and dessert or coffee, is a mere 11 euros and the food is top quality. The chef uses fresh ingredients that vary by season, but to this day my favorite thing is their pumpkin soup in the fall.
If a sauce or dish has gluten in it, the waiters will tell you and help you find something safe you can eat without worrying. They have fried food and pastas on the menu as well, but I have never had trouble ordering a full and satisfying meal. For example, I often get some version of meat and vegetables, but if the sauce that goes with the meat has gluten in it, the staff make my plate without the sauce.
I have never been sick and keep returning to this restaurant for its delicious food (see the extensive salad menu if you are still wary of a non-dedicated gluten-free kitchen) and the amazing view - as it is located right across the street from the beautiful modernist Hospital Sant Pau building.
