4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Whenever we travel, one of the things we do almost as soon as we come home is head to Shakespeare's for dinner and shisha. The food is always of a good standard, the service is spot on and the shisha is good quality and reasonably priced considering where the branches are located.

I like the outdoor tables they have as you can sit there and enjoy shisha in a closed tent where you cannot feel the hot weather these days.

We went for breakfast in their Dubai mall branch and were utterly disappointed at the service, quality of bread, Turkish coffee. We loved Shakespeare and have been loyal customers for over 15 years now but I guess now they are giving us enough reason to frequent other places.

The place is very cosy morning and night , during summer time you have an air conditioning area , and also shisha and smoking lovers would have their dedicated large space to do their thing which is very rare to find in Dubai , lots of space and time to work on your laptop too , the menu is limited...

With its querky decor, and very English name, we thought we'd try here. The food was excellent, and freshly made, and staff helpful and very friendly. I had their own made chicken burger, & my mum the smoked turkey sandwich, - both of which were huge! The minty lucious drinks were also very refreshing after a day in the heat!... More

At Arabian Ranches ordered Nicoise salad, absolutely dreadful. Rubbery tuna, too much overpowering dressing and a stone cold very hard poached egg. My friend and I couldn't believe they would even serve food this bad. Complained to manager and he just kept repeating "will be better next time". definitely wont be a next time.

My heads up for a great meal in Dubai. We had dinner at Shakespeare and Co, it features charming surroundings, warm hospitality and, absolutely, value for money. I ordered the beef tenderloin and a fondant au chocolat...awesome!

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.
