Shakespeares always has delicious food. The atmosphere is is peaceful and though the decor is 'busy' it is still tasteful to sit for a relaxed meal. The service is always excellent, and the food varieties of good qulaity and quantity. I chose lentil soup for my vegan lifestyle and my friend had the bass.

We ordered coffee, ice cream, sorbets, and some snacks. The staff was very nice and friendly, Coffee was refreshing, but the sorbets and ice creams were too sweet for my liking. The ambience and decor is cool, and yes, bill amount was quite reasonable compared to other cafés of similar class.

Not in Al Ain Mall but in Jimi Mall, great flavors,
excellent service and food, portion sizes a bit
too large in my opinion but that's because counting
calories is important. They will adjust to whatever you need
if you ask them. Great Staff! Prices are fairly affordable as well.
