Barcelona Gluten Free Options

Hello everyone,

My family (2 daughters and wife) and I are heading to Barcelona in March (the week before Easter). I've done a fair amount of research reading the boards here and there are a lot of great suggestions, so thank you already for the info.

My 12 year old daughter has Celiac disease. I understand that a lot of restaurants in Spain are very good about accomodating this (maybe better than the US in general). I've gone to the Catalan Celiac Society website and gotten some suggestions for restaurants that are particularly friendly to those needing GF menus. I'd like your opinions on the following:

1. PLA (sounds like a winner, but wanted to check)
2. Casa Calvet
3. La Lluna (NOT La Luna--different places)
4. L'arros
5. Cafe de la Princesa

Also, do you think that good tapas places (Paco Meralgo) would be able to accomodate her or is there just too much risk of cross-contamination? I am hoping that we will also be able to get meals she can eat at places like Set Portes.

Any other recommendations or thoughts on where to go for dinner would be appreciated. We are staying in an apartment right next to the Jaume I metro.
