Reasonably priced, nice interior, quite romantic, food was good but not a huge veggie selection like other Lebanese - but I may be applying European standards to Costa Rica!

Excellent Lebanese. Babaganoush, schwarma, tabuleh and cheese dishes were divine. Great flavors and nice atmosphere. We came for lunch.

Have dined there twice since 2012. There is the main room near the entrance, but we prefer the dimly-lit second room off to the left, with its mysterious atmosphere. The vegetarian options on the menu were delicious. When I dined with a Frenchman, we were at first disappointed to not find any wine from Europe or the Americas, so we... More

We came for a quick dish and ordered grilled lamb, shawarma and hummus. The servings were really big so with the entries we were basically full when the main course was served.

There are lots of options on the menu, i usually do one of the sharable options and the mint lemonade. It's more expensive than your average soda, but well worth it.

The place is real fancy looking but it serves the same average Middle Eastern food that every other place sells in Costa Rica. The service was good probably because we were the only people in there. The schwarma plate wasn't anything special but it was filling. They do give you quite a bit of food but its not ringing the... More
