Looking for a place for a romantic date, I found this restaurant online. I called first, to inquire about reservations and the belly dance presentation. We got there by 9 pm on a Friday and not only enjoyed a delicious meal, but also a very artistic belly dance presentation. This restaurant is a bit pricey, but it is worth the... More

Really nice place. Great view of San Jose lights at night. Waiter was incompetent and indifferent. Asked for Drambue. He said they didn't have. Went to bar and bartender had it. Ordered seabass waiter came back and said they were out. Offered tuna or mahi mahi. Then came back and said no mahi mahi. Sucked on ice in empty glass... More

First time visit to this restuarant, whose location and panoramic view of the central valley is spectacular. Sharing with a group of friends we taste dishes of delicious Middle Eastern food and its international gastronomy. This restaurant has the advantage of offering spaces also as party room. Recommended to share with friends, in groups, and families. The staff is very... More

The place itself is really nice, located in a nice area and with nice view to the Central Valley. The service; however, was a terrible experience, we were barely greeted, the reservation was not done as agreed, the food average but for the price we paid I expected better quality. The only good thing of the night was the performance... More

We just visited Baalbek again after quite some time. It was better than last time. There were 4 of us and we each ordered different entrees. All were very well done. The salad was enjoyable and the deserts fabulous. The view is always amazing and the service was excellent!

Very beautiful view of San Jose. Food was just OK (fish overcooked, steak tough) but the view and the fireplace made for a very cozy atmosphere. As we were part of a tour maybe with better menu choices and a smaller group maybe we would have had better food. Don't know the cost as it was included in our tour... More

An older restaurant with good food and amazing views. It is in one of my favorite areas of Costa Rica, the mountains of Heredia.
