This little restaurant in my opinion is overlooked for some of the better rated and more prominently positioned restaurants in the Medina. But being alone and struggling to get into the more popular restaurants in the Medina I decided to visit Keltoum based on other trip advisor reviews. When I entered it was Friday at 7.00pm and the restaurant was empty. But before I left they had more customers.
The food is good and I really enjoyed my meal. Yes it’s not gourmet but it’s reasonably priced which makes it a good solid bet. I had the set menu for DH 80. I chose Soupe Poisson (Fish Soup) which was really tasty and the Pastilla de Poisson (a sort of local vis
pasty of white fish and seafood in filo pastry served with a wedge of lemon). The menu comes with a choice of dessert but I chose not to have this as I was full. The portions are just the right size. Not too much and not too little.
The host explained that he preferred to offer good value food than to waste money on decor but I actually really liked the decor which I felt was cheery, clean and bright with white walls and using the lovely seaside blue which all the doors of the Souk use. Actually more appealing than some of the dark interiors of other Moroccan restaurants.
The restaurant was difficult to find and that could be why it is overlooked. There was little signage which could be seen from the Main Street. Also the trip advisor sign was inside and not on the door. I tried to explain to the owner that if he put the sign on the door it may be better for business but my French isn’t great and he mentioned getting a bigger sign above the door instead!
If your on a budget or on your 2nd or 3rd day and just want some reasonably priced simple local food, this is your place.
