Nice food served in a courtyard surrounded by a single storey building in the style of a Victorian railway station. Most customers seem to be there for a Shisha pipe.

We then ventured down the street and happened upon Shakespeare and Co and enjoyed not only the service but the food as well.

Food taste differs from the restaurant (Jumeirah vs Ranches vs Downtown) you visit, some restaurants have very limited menu leading to the disappointment. Atmosphere, decor and service are great, outdoor seating is available with chillers. Food is very good. Great place to sit and relax.
