Retreat into the alkove and cosy up to warm, homey food in a perfect spot for a good, well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of life. Catch up with friends, family or just yourself.


alkove was built to provide a space to make time for things that matter – good food and good people.

Get your daily dose of caffeine, indulge in our homey French onion soup, or treat yourself to our sweet, tender signature canelés as you nestle in and slow down.

A concept born from the shared dedication for food between restaurant industry premier specialists, Passion For Food and 1-Michelin Star Chef Haikal, alkove comes together to bring the relaxing atittude of French culture to the heartlands of Kovan through casual, refreshing French fare that does not take itself too seriously.

Welcome to alkove.

Every day, we serve carefully prepared food that emphasises the importance of high-quality execution and the distinctive French culture of taking it slow to appreciate the finer things in life.

This is a place of encounters and discoveries, through the changing works on the walls, the curated music, the menu designed with passion and the attentive service team.

For all hours while the sun's up, alone, with family or friends.
