I would agree with "Decent Lebanese Food". Decent food, decent service, but certainly very pricy for what it is. Given the location maybe not too bad a choice but hopefully there is better to be found in the area.

Beautiful decoration, delicious food, attentive service and great music. This is the place to go if you love the Middle Eastern gastronomy. You completely forget you're in downtown San Jose! Love it!

I love Lubnan. It's well located in the city center, surrounded by parking lots (they have their own on the back, though). The food is consistently great and very diverse. It has a very nice environment and they have regular entertainment (belly dancing). Really great option both for lunch and dinner.

Back home in the US, I frequent Middle Eastern restaurants. This was a very good one. I was with a big group (about 15) and they seated us and got us our orders and food in a timely manner. I really enjoyed the food. I had chicken and a sampler of all the traditional foods like hummus. I will definitely... More

This place is decent. I will not say it's the best because I have been exposed to the best when I traveled to Lebanon and Dubai. But it's a good effort for Costa Rica. The food is decent and the decor is also decent. It's a darker place and turns into a party in their back bar on Wednesdays. Not... More

A brilliant pleasurable dining experience. When i attended there was a full ladies (approx 50) party going on. Still i was served diligently, fresh vegetables, well prepared, savoury dishes. Waiters were attentive, dishes were ample proportion and price not excessive. Sadly i visited two days later and it was closed! As in Arnies famous words... "I'll be back.."

Something different in San Jose, this place offers some interesting variety during my weekend stays. Don't let the outside fool you, once you go through the trippy wood and burlap revolving door, you enter a cozy restaurant with 3-4 seating areas including sitting on cushions on the floor. We opted for the regular tables through. There are some good appetizers... More

I went several years ago, it was really delicious and plentiful. Plus, after lunch, I was able to buy a really big jar of tahini in their shop next door.

This Lebanese restaurant was a big surprise. The food was excellent and service also. I have never had lamb before in Costa Rica and it did not betray. Highly recommended
