Earlier this year I decided to change to a Ketogenic (Keto) diet and what that means is that I limit the number of carbohydrates/sugars I eat (That means no more bread, pasta and 99% of sweet desserts). I do occasionally allow myself to indulge into some carbs, as it makes going out with friends and family a lot easier, but for the most part, my diet consists of high “good” Fats, regular amount of Proteins and little to no Carbohydrates.
The two things we Keto peeps can agree on, is that this lifestyle is, a) quite expensive and b) a struggle when trying to find new Keto replacement for those good old carbohydrate staples. So I was very excited to discover the existence of the “Keto Restaurant” and on the last day before Lockdown 2.0 hit us, we entered!

The restaurant itself is of fairly decent size, I would highly recommend booking ahead to save you any disappointment. Coming off the bat of a Halloween Weekend, the restaurant was still decked in its finest spiders and pumpkins décor. The restaurant is set under dim lighting and is decked in floral and plants giving it quite an inviting and relaxing vibe.
When we saw bread on the menu it was a fairly obvious choice. Bread is arguably at the very top of things I miss from the carb family, so any opportunity I can get to eat Keto Bread, you bet I am going to take it.
One common fear when it comes to Keto bread is that it can taste on the eggy side and thankfully on this occasion this bread was not. The bread was soft, spongy and felt much lighter than its carbohydrate version. It also tastes excellent when smothered in garlic butter with herbs.
As we wanted to try as much as possible, we elected to go for the 3 mini pizza option, which allows you get 3 pizzas but at a much smaller size than if you were to get a single. We went for the Vegetarian, Four Cheeses and Pepperoni. The pizza is made from a Cauliflower base which means it is surprisingly filling. The base is very thin and delicate so do take care when trying to cut the pizza to share, I do prefer my pizza to be thin and crispy which sadly this does fail on the latter, otherwise, the pizza went down a real treat, My personal favourite out of the three was the Vegetarian pizza.
For my dish, I actually wanted to try their Fish and Chips but sadly they had run out at the time of ordering, so I went for the Beef Burger instead. The dish comes in a Keto Bun, with Swede Chips, Steamed Vegetables and Crispy Onions on the side. The burger tasted amazing, the meat was flavourful and tender and I was really impressed by the keto bun in particular (I need to find a recipe for home) and the crispy onion and chips rounded off the meal very nicely..
Feeling stuffed, I still wasn’t leaving until I tried the desert. My table went for the Berry Heart Cookie” which essentially is a mahoosive Jammie Dodger and a Coconut Sponge Cake. Although we ended up eating a small piece, both desserts were incredible, they both taste and feel like regular sugary treats – particularly the Sponge Cake. We ended up enjoying the rest of the cookie and cake the next day at home!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Keto Restaurant, the place is great for keto peeps (obviously) but also for non-keto peeps as the food is seriously delicious. We went in trying to solve two problems, this place did only solve one, however. The price tag is on the slightly expensive side and that is simply due to that fact that Keto food or should I reiterate and say Good Innovative Keto Food is a premium so naturally the prices here were always going to be a bit on the high side. Nonetheless, I will be revisiting again especially to try more from their cake display 🙂
