“Top 5 Place to Eat in SJ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Lubnan is a must for anyone passing through or even living in San Jose. The food is mouthwatering delicious. The mezza is unreal. Best I've ever had. FOR REAL!!!

You will go home from Costa Rica remembering 2 things, baby sloths and the food from Lubnan.

It's right on Paseo Colon so it's very convenient as everyone has to pass through this area at some point during their time in SJ.

Cheers

“The best Lebanese food in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I've been to three different Lebanese food restaurants in San José, and Lubnan is definitely the best. Food with great taste, very well prepared, acceptable amount for a fair price combined with faultless attention makes Lubnan a restaurant that you must visit when going to San Jose. If you like Lebanese food, you'll love Lubnan. If you haven't tried it, you'll love it. I recommend Meza if you wanna have a little bit of everything. A great option to go with friends.

“Great Lamb dishes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

service was a bit slow (hence the 4 instead of a 5) BUT we did have a group of 10! The lamb dishes were wonderful, authenic, and huge! We received complomentary coffee and were able to get separate checks! There is a smoking area hidden in the back in a courtyard - no secondhand smoke! I liked the decor - the entrance through a revolving burlap door took me away for the city and into the world of the Mediteranian!

“Great Food,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

The food is legit. Classic lebanese dishes with a unique decor. Wednesday nights in the Bar boasts the longest running electronic Dance night (house) in the country. DJ Sweet-Bo (France) has been killing it there with special guests for 10 years. Good eats smooth beats and great people watching if you go early enough and get a seat in the Bar.
