Our Mission

Our story

“Generations ago, life was simpler. Our food was prepared honestly, using nature’s pure and wonderful goodness. The true essence and flavors of each ingredient was enjoyed without the artificial additions and substitute foods we have today.

Looking back at pictures of my own family - my grandparents in particular - I’m conscious of how happy and healthy they are. There is an obvious connection between the traditional lifestyle of “eating what you grow” and an overall sense of well-being that cannot be ignored.

But over the years, the world’s relationship with food changed. Artificial ingredients were introduced and we became increasingly disconnected from natural food sources. As people now look to revisit their choices, this has paved the way for fad diets and contradictory information on what it means to be healthy.

Alkalime believes health is a lifestyle, not a momentary diet. It’s not about extreme measures but incremental changes in both mindset and behaviour. Our everyday eatery focusses on simple, wholesome and homemade meals using ingredients the way nature intended - the way your grandparents would appreciate.

We are your home away from home and each dish is lovingly crafted with your well-being in mind.

My vision is that Alkalime becomes a place for guests to reconnect with each other and disconnect from modern-day stresses. A place that reminds you of how magical food can, and should be - in its original, most authentic form.”

With love,

Our Space

The beach in front of you, the lemon tree behind you.

Alkalime blurs the boundaries between the inside and outside by incorporating natural, sustainable materials in every touchpoint. 

Like an ode to Mother Nature, every touchpoint has been carefully considered for its impact on the environment.  

Using natural, raw materials sourced from around the world, Alkalime is a space unlike any other in Abu Dhabi. Beyond its calming embrace, every piece has a story. Nothing has been introduced by chance.
