A mix of Beatrix Potter with Barbara Cartland. Old world tea shop with too much in it. Really good brunch. Really good service and a really good price. Treat yourself.

We visited for breakfast. Food was good, very nice view. Good service. But not easily accessible, that is you have to park i the mall and go there through the mall. I am not sure if there is any other way.

We chose this restaurant for a total change and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and opportunity to chat as a family in remarkably quiet surroundings. The food was average but the surroundings and service more than compensated for that.

This place is not up to the standard of the other branches. Staff are slow to serve and clear tables. The place lacks ambiance.

The Victorian ambiance, sumptuous desserts, mouthwatering pasta. Yes guys, I am not over reacting. Everything in Shakespeare sreams DELICIOUS. From breakfast to dinner and all. service is very good, friendly staff. Cheesecake is to die for..and hot chocolate is superb. You also need to try there pastas. And the free garlic butter and coriander spread? it's a must.

There is something about Shakespeare cafe that makes me return again and again. It reminds me the doll house with its colourful design, multiple chandeliers, cute chairs and tables. Try visiting Dubai Marina Mall branch, it's one of the best. The food, the sweets along with exquisitely tasty tea and a flavoured shisha is a must try! You can purchase... More

An excellent venue, open for breakfast, lunch or dinner. A really good place for either a snack or a three course meal. Excellent value for money. Food and service 10/10.
