The Towie casts’ insistence of ‘no carbs before Marbs,’ quickly became a popular mantra amongst those looking to shed a few pre-holiday pounds, the health conscious Towie cast are no doubt thrilled with the recent opening of Celicioso – Marbella’s first gluten –free restaurant.

Celicioso is part of the luxury Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa, situated on the southern coast of Spain in the Costa del Sol within the magnificent ‘Golden Mile,’ a luxurious residential area between Marbella and Puerto Banus, just 35 minutes’ drive from Málaga Airport.

Considered the leading luxury beach resort in Marbella, Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa, resembles an authentic Andalusian village. Its 264 luxurious Mediterranean style guest rooms are spread across 27 three–storey villas, among 55.000 sq. m. of lush, sub-tropical gardens, cascading down to the Mediterranean Sea.Celicioso -Gluten Free Baked Goods

Owner of Celicioso, Santiago Godfrid was inspired to introduce a full gluten –free menu after being diagnosed with celiac disease and inevitably prevented from enjoying all his favourite foods, Santiago was determined that fellow celiacs should not also be restricted. Starting with gluten –free baked goods the menu has now expanded to include both a savoury and drinks menu.

Celicioso is the resorts’ ninth restaurant; the resorts’ impressive portfolio also includes the popular Sea Grill and two Michelin –starred chef, Dani Garcia’s eponymous restaurant.

No need to skip carbs in Marbs as long as you go gluten –free at Celicioso.
