Nice atmosphere and food, but need a megaphone to call for staff - this happened 4 times which is extremely annoying. They should keep an eye on the tables. However staff is friendly and polite.

We moved and found another table as the place was very empty this Friday morning at 11am. We made our order and the waiter mixed it up and food was... More

This place can be better in quality of seating and food. The service is not impressive as well, the room for smoking is small annoying and not well aired

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.

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.
