If you want a restaurant with reasonable pricing both for food and drinks and located in a romantic atmosphere you cannot go past Romeo & Juliet's restaurant located at the Shakespeare Motel. The food, the service and the staff were simply amazing and both myself and my wife have a very romantic dinner which we will remember always. Thank you... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant when we stayed at the motel. Usually motel restaurants are nothing to rave about, but this one is different. There was a good amount of vegetation options.

Normally do not eat where we stay, but at very late notice we managed to get a table - in fact as we were walking out. The friendly staff actually moved furniture to fit us in. And what a surprise. The food was excellent, wine very good and reasonable priced and can't say enough about the staff. They were fantastic.

Had a chance to catch up with some friends and decided we would try Romeo & Juliet's. We didn't have a booking. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Having a drink in the lounge area with no pressure to hurry to a table. The food was fantastic, we all ordered different dishes and we were all very happy... More

Excellent for couples as they have private booths. We had a nice night, the service was great and the meals came out quick and we enjoyed. Plus they had specials.

Ordered entrees and mains and not a negative comment to add. Was thoroughly impressed with the quality of service and food. The beetroot and goats cheese ravioli was so special I'm glad we ordered that one.
