Good food that cost very little compared to other restaurants in Dubai. we were seated outside during the evening with a nice view over the Dubai Marina, which enhanced the experience. Overall, probably not a place we will come again as there are so many other interesting dining options in Dubai.

This is a lovely, quirky restaurant that serves lovely breakfasts. The decor is fun and old fashioned. The staff work really hard as the restaurant is almost always busy but they are still friendly and attentive even though you can tell they are under pressure.

The food is nice but the coffee is great. Smokers can usually enjoy sheesha pipes in many of the outlets. Nice way to spend a Saturday morning.

I recently visited the Marina mall branch and found the veranda very nice.
Food and shisha comes quickly and of good quality.

the nice view of the Marina skyscrapers and the quiet surroundings make it suitable for a solo moment of relax or a friends/business gathering.

First of all, thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience with us. Although it was a disappointing experience, it certainly serves as a wake up call for us to bring our standards back to where they should be. Our manager has been instructed to pay greater attention to the quality of service, and our branch head chef has also been advised to pay closer attention to the quality of food/presentation prior to serving. Rest assured, we take all of our customers comments seriously and take swift action to ensure our other patrons do not experience the same disappointment. We do hope you will give us a chance to make it up to you, and if you don't mind contact us at corporate@shakespeareandco.ae, we shall endeavor to redeem ourselves.
