“Cute place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

I've been in souk al bahar's branch with my friends,
. we smoked sheesha and had a dinner. According to my friends sheesha wasn't really good. The environment is amazing. It deserves to handle the name of Shakespeare . Stuff is friendly. I arrived a little bit late it was closing time so i couldn't stay long time. I will visit again and again for tea and dinner.

Thank you very much Aniikkaa for visiting our restaurant and for taking the time to write a review. We are glad that you like the atmosphere and and the friendly service - which we are known for, aside from the tasty quality food we offer. We strive to decorate our restaurant to reflect the Shakespearean era of elegance, with a warmth of home ambiance infusion. It is grateful indeed to hear from our patrons that we deserved to handle the Shakespeare name.
Thanks again for the lovely feedback and see you again soon!

“Lovely breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

I just love the interior! Only been here for breakfast which is very good and value for money. Lots of variety and very generous portions. This place is always busy and I can see why - a drink, snack and a good book to while away the hot days..

Thank you very much Khyan for visiting our restaurant and for taking the time to write a lovely review. We are glad that you liked the interior design and our breakfast dish - which we are known for (we do all day breakfast). Our design is a source of pride, as it is our desire to provide our patrons not only quality tasty food and friendly-efficient service, but a warm and comfy atmosphere to enjoy! It has always been our desire to provide our patrons a feeling of "value for money", and we are glad that you felt it with us. Thanks again for your lovely review - looking forward to welcoming you back again soon!

“Ugh...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The food in this place is terrible but for some reason it is usually quite busy. I can't figure out what the attraction is. Last time I went to S&Co was in Dubai Marina and I'll never go to another S&Co. again!

It is always our pleasure to assist our guest when it comes to food suggestions - as we want each of our guest to leave satisfied and hopefully, receive reviews describing our food and service awesome! Thank you again for your valuable review and hope to welcoming you back again soon...

Thank you very much tancred1964 for visiting our restaurant and taking the time to write a review. Our pastry/cakes is one of our many specialties in the house...and we have huge selections indeed! And of course, since we are providing our patrons a wide array of pastries to enjoy - it is our desire as well to provide our guest a wide variety of teas and coffees to choose from that will go well with their pastries. Please do visit us again and try our savory products - you might find something new! See you soon!
