There are many of them in Dubai, I usually go to the one in Souk Al Bahar. It is nice for both indoor (cute décor) and outdoor seating (Burj Khalifa view). Good place to catch up with friends, have Moroccan tea, some sweets or snacks, shisha. I wouldn’t recommend their Main Courses.

I go here for the shisha which is very good, better than a few other places. I haven't eaten here much so don't take my review for food.

The atmosphere is so good here.. I love Shakespeare's for that. You are getting relaxed and can forget all the trouble while smoking nice shisha.. The Morrocan tea was perfect, and staff is very friendly.. The service is good, but not intrusive. You can enjoy your time, the view is lovely too. I highly recommend.

If you are close to the Marina and need breakfast or a nice cool fruit juice, this is your place. Curious and inviting inside but also has nice terrace overlooking theMarina.

Ordered Crispy calamari, Salad Nicoise and Saj Zaater. Good proportions and tasty except the Saj Zaater was a bit stiff suggesting it was overheated in a microwave??

one of the elegant coffee shops that serves Shisha or Hooka. They have good food & beverages list. Parking is kind of a challenge most of the time. Their Moroccan manager is very humble smiley & nice. Good place for a cup of coffee or tea with a shisha.
