We so looked forward to a tasty middle eastern meal but we're disappointed with our selection. The four of us had falafels. We only had 2 on a large pita. Service was average. We patiently waited for the belly dance performance and when she performed it was only for a short period. Costa Rica has wonderful cuisines. This was our... More

First off, I have visited Lubnan on occasion over the last 10 years, and it has never disappointed me. Yesterday, I visited in what was going to longer than it actually ended up being; due to the party not showing. Unknowing of the night's disappointing outcome, I started by ordering my customary black Smirnoff, which was serviced with the standard... More

We have been going here for nearly 10 years. It is always on the itinerary. The food is fantastic, and the atmosphere is great. Portions are big, so if you are staying in a hotel and don't have a fridge, order accordingly. While there are many other options that are out there that are less expensive, you'll quickly decide that... More

This restaurant has a wonderful staff and the food is absolutely delicious. Everything is well seasoned and the atmosphere is relaxed. You can share a Mezza or have it for yourself. it showcases some of Lubnan's best offerings. Enjoy. You won't regret it.

Lubnan it's just the best restaurant in San Jose it has it all, best food, awesome place, nice staff. The price rounds like $14 per dish but it's the best deal you will get for Lebanese food in Costa Rica, and the food it's simply the best. They always give you a little entrance for free! And all the food... More

The food here is excellent, the setting cozy and comfortable, the service excellent ( but surprisingly slow for a room that was not full). I was in relationship with a Lebanese woman for a decade, and enjoyed food prepared by her, her mom, and her mom's friends, and have enjoyed hundreds of Lebanese meals by many Lebanese cooks. I bring... More
