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.

The decoration was quite colorful and pleasant. The location in Marina Mall was quite bright and pleasant overlooking the Water Canal. Food service was fast. 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?? Rates were also quite reasonable for Dubai I... More

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.

Their menu is very rich with a serving portion that is pretty well for the buck. I recommend their Pastas and pizzas and of course their lovely dessert.
