Came here for the prospect of sitting on beach for our dinner. Was a little skeptical at first but the food was first rate and the service was amazing. Cocktails were custom made in house and I would recommend the margarita and mojito.

I'm sorry, I didn't take specific notice of gluten free options or not.
