The food is OK, the atmosphere and décoration are unique, giving a chic old ladies manour feel. I would recommend the Ice cream, the sorbets and the sweets, especially the mille-feuilles.

We ordered sheesha and Moroccan tea. The sheesha wasn't that good don't know why, as it made me cough again and again and nobody bothered to look at it. Place and location seems great but the place has Arabian look which is opposite to the name of the outlet.

I had dinner with shisha at Shakespeare with friends last week, the service was very good, shisha was excellent but the food taste needs to be considered. It was too oily and overcooked. however over all experience was good. but not the best.

I have been to Shakespeare and Co in other cities and was much better than this one. The place was barely clean and the air-conditioning was not working. Imagine having tea or coffee in Dubai during summer with no air-conditioning. The service was average. I would not do it again..

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighbourhood Profile
Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighbourhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
