Wide selection of foods and drinks along with the ever so popular shisha in Dubai. Shakespeare is the place to go to catch up with friends and spend time together. The service is good and the food is of a wide variety. This is not a fine dining place but more of a café styled place to hang out. I... More

The usual good standards. Friendly service and good food. Nice location in Jumeirah 1. I love the simple grilled chicken and fries.

There is nothing wrong with this place. I ordered fresh juice and it came with an intense amount of scrunched ice ... I commented on it and without a blink of the eyes it was taken back and I got a 'non- freezing' version. Very elegant. The mushroom soup with truffle oil ... I haven't found a sign of the... More

Once you get past the chintz explosion that is Shakespeare and Co, the menu is incredibly diverse and ticks most diners taste buds. The pastries and puddings are fab and they will box up for takeaway in ridiculously styled boxes- definitely worth a try and I am a big fan of their lemon tarts and macaroons.

Went there for dinner with the family. We enjoyed sitting in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. The service was good and the food was very tasty. The experience was consistent with 2 other locations which I tried for this restaurant.

A lovely place, with consistently good food. Whether you want a snack or a full meal, you will always get excellent quality and quantity. Sometimes, we order one main between us, as they are so big. The staff are always very friendly no matter which branch you go in to. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

The healthy breakfast is my favorite. It includes eggs, yoghurt with fruits, bread, butter and jam, coffee and a fresh juice. The style of the restaurant might be a bit too girly. The service is usually good.

It was an unassuming evening drive that turned out to be a memorable lazing over coffee. We were out for a late night drive on Jumeirah road and were looking for a café. I remembered Jaishree taking me to ‘Shakespeare Café’ a few weeks back. It was just around the corner. In a few minutes we reached the café. The... More
