Gluten free food in Cyprus

We are going on a 3 week self catering holiday to Cyprus. Our teenager is coeliac. Can you advise of any supermarket and restaurants that would cater for us. We do know there are Carrefour stores in Larnaca, would you know if they sell coeliac products ?

Gluten free food Paphos
by: Martin little

Just wanted to add further information about gluten free food as I am in Cyprus at the moment, you can buy gluten free bread and pasta etc in the Alpha mega hypermarket just up the road from Debenhams it's a great store and we found it very useful as our 2 children are coeliac.

And there is also a bakery called Zorbas that will order you in gluten free bread at a decent price, it will take 3 days to arrive As they only get deliveries on a Monday Wednesday and Saturday but very helpful if your stuck for fresh bread.

If you are Ceoliac bit of advice, Print a few copies of in the language of the country you are visiting, show it in any resturant if they don't have any idea what to do LEAVE.

Pinguino cafe near the front at Kato Paphos, and I am told there is a bakery in Cloraks. I've also found that papantoniou sells gluten free bread and cookies.

JUST ITALIAN ristorante ( there are two, one in Nicosia in the Egomi area next to the coffee beanery and one in Paralimni under the name Kapparis ristorante) has gluten free pasta and dishes.
There is also a cafe restaurant in Paphos at the street by the sea in Kato paphos - I think it is called "penguin" that offers gluten free dishes.
Good luck

Supermarkets with gluten free food in Cyprus
by: Helen

Not sure about Carrefour as I don't shop there, but the Papantoniou chain sells gluten free products and many organic, bio friendly products to suit all dietary needs.

As for restaurants, I don't live in Larnaca (we are opposite side of island) I can't comment, but if the ones on the Paphos side are anything to go by, then you will just have to avoid wheat based food products as none of the restaurants specifically do gluten-free meals.

I would recommend bringing a small quantity of gluten free bread/essentials with you to avoid a stressful shopping trip when you first arrive.
