Gluten at Kypseli
Gluten-free describes foods that contain gluten at a level of no more than 20 parts per million. We use gluten-free flour to make dishes such as cheese saganaki and meatballs. Our pita breads for dipping and pita bases for topping (Corfu-style pizzas) can all be ordered gluten-free.

Allergies & Ingredient Lists
Please inform our manager or waiter on arrival if you have an allergy, as our authentic dishes are handmade in our buzzy kitchens, so we cannot absolutely guarantee that they are 100% free of allergens and contaminants. Please also note that not all of the ingredients in each dish are listed on the menu. If you would like to know the ingredients of each dish, please ask a member of our team for our full ingredients check list.
Booking Enquiry for a table at Kypseli Taverna, No15 Stone Street, Cranbrook. But it’s MUCH quicker if you phone us on 0800 0219 444.
Please note that whilst we will do our very best to accommodate you and your party, we are a small venue and have limited capacity, especially during business hours. Which is why we encourage you to call us rather than email. We will however endeavour to contact you as soon as possible to confirm your booking, or to discuss alternative arrangements.
