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 French onion soup, or treat yourself to our sweet, tender bakes and pastries 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 European culture to the heartlands of Kovan through casual, refreshing 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 European 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.
