If we have space, we are very happy to offer non-resident guests an Alkira experience. Reservations do not accept children under 12. We can usually only confirm whether we are able to accommodate non-resident guests once resident guests have confirmed their reservation and we appreciate your understanding in this. Our chefs prepare a fresh menu each day and any changes to number of guests need to be confirmed by 10am that day to avoid being disappointed or charged a no show.
We have this policy to ensure a peaceful, relaxed and Covid safe space and so that all our guests can fully enjoy their experience at Alkira.
