All of my restaurant reviews are based on my personal opinions and experiences. I am by no means a professional food critic just a Coeliac with a passion for food and sharing the best gluten free restaurants around Victoria and Australia. I hope that you enjoy my reviews.
The Rating Stars
You’ll notice on each review in the top corner there are two rows of stars. These stars represent the two different categories that I asses when I dine at a restaurant. The first lot of stars is the most important for those of us with Coeliac Disease. These five stars are to rate how Coeliac friendly the restaurant is.The following line of stars relates to the more general aspects of the venue. This covers the food, the service, the atmosphere and price.
The Coeliac Friendly Star
Determining how Coeliac friendly a restaurant is revolves around these following points:
- A full five star rating will be provided to the Coeliac Society Accredited Restaurants.
- Cross contamination knowledge within the restaurant.
- Whether the restaurant is either 100% gluten free.
- If they have a completely separated cooking area for the gluten free foods.
- Their cross contamination measures including: Washing their hands. Changing gloves when interchanging meals.
- If the restaurant prepares, stores and/or cooks food in the same area as gluten.
- If the restaurant has no idea about the dangers of cross contamination.
- What percentage of the menu is gluten free.
The Service and Atmosphere Star
The five stars to determine the quality of the restaurant is split between:
- The atmosphere
- The service
- The quality of the food
- and price.
That’s the run down, if you have any further questions feel free to let me know. For transparency within my reviews, unless stated every meal was paid for by myself or my family. If I am ever asked to attend a venue it will be stated very clearly at the beginning of my review.
Finally, if you have any venues you would like me to review please leave a comment or email me and let me know.
