Shakespeare provides a cozy, chic ambiance reminiscent of Victorian elegance, where clients can enjoy a unique menu of high-quality, gourmet food, drinks and excellent service. The concept derives its uniqueness from the combination of high quality service at a reasonable price and an original style decor. The eclectic menu covers all-day-breakfast (Continental & Arabic), saj, pizza, pasta, international salads, a variety of meat, fish and vegetarian main dishes as well as desserts – all served with panache in a beautiful presentation.

different decor with good crepes and turkish coffee

they are many brunches of this chain and we tried most of them with them all being consistent with taste. From appetizers to sweets everything was always good, nothing extraordinary but good for you to go back to. its not on the cheap side but still you cant go wrong with this place.

I had a friends' reunion here and the view of the lights as well as the water was lovely. The quality of food, soups and sandwiches, and overall service were exceptional. Loved it.

I've been to more than one in the city, but this Shakespeare & Co branch tops them all. The seating is ample, spread over a very large terrace, indoors, as well as inside the mall atrium area. Service is consistently friendly and good, and the food is always fresh and of high quality. I've been here more than once and... More

This place is cute with Skakespeare themed decor. The service was good, the staff were friendly, it was clean and cosy. The menu was varied, we went for brunch and I had the crepes which were great. Nice place.

I ordered almond caramel crepe and my friend got chocolate crepe. It was overpriced but then (almost) everything in Dubai is overpriced right? I am satisfied with the taste though. The sorbet was so good we got the sorbet in a small tub to bring back home. The restaurant has really good ambience with very detailed decorations. Always came here... More

Ok, I get it, this is a shisha place. But there must be a way for someone to enjoy the good food and nice setting without inhaling all the second hand smoke

Recently we're in Abu Dhabi and when we saw it in Marina Mall, we decided to have a light lunch there, and it didn't disappoint.

Had lunch over the weekend. The service was good and the food (mainly sandwiches) was pleasant. The pink lemonade was tasty and very refreshing in this summer heat. Worth a visit.

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
