Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

This former butcher's has lost none of its carnivorous appetite: since its conversion into a restaurant back in 2010, L'Alcôve has been serving a saliva-inducing range of Maghrebian grills to locals in the know. The venue itself, innocuously squeezed between a sushi place and a grocer's, is more kebab joint than restaurant proper; but one glance at the menu of tajines and grilled meat dishes will convince you to stay. The couscous is as fine as desert sand, the meats themselves as succulent as anything you'll get for this price (count around €13–€18 per main) – special mention goes to the exquisitely tender beef skewers and merguez sausages. The meal is rounded out by a salmagundi of salads, vegetables and condiments, and a very decent bottle of organic wine (€20). We'll be back.
