I love the glutenfree options from sandwiches to pastas, it's a great variety! Quality of the food is very good. I love the salads too. My favorite is the salmon salad. It's always worth a visit, good choice for the whole family

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

We first patronised it in its Dubai Mall four years ago and it had left a rather good impression. 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. It was good , honest food and friendly service from our last visit that brought us... More

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
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.
