The restaurant looks nothing from the outside. Inside it looks great with a nice Lebanese theme. The food was good with little extras like lentil soup thrown in. I loved the carrots in lime juice that were given while waiting for food. Belly dancers a nice touch too.

The food is certainly good but the service is not. We stopped in on a Saturday night but they were not busy. The waiter was very polite but forgot about our hummus. He brought it out along with the meal once we reminded him. We also wanted the empty plates cleared from our table before dessert but no such luck.... More

I've been visiting Lubnan for more than 7 years. I love the atmosphere, the service, and the relation between quality and price. Lubnan has never dissappointed me. It serves authentic Lebanese food. You can try the Mezze for two, which is even good for 3 people. The belly dancing show is great, too!

If you like Lebanese food (or want to try to taste something different) this is the best place in San Jose. Try their Mezze for two. It is a combination of all the best things on their menu in small portions. It is supposed to be for two but can feed 3. Their kibble naye is also great (raw ground... More

I went to celebrate my friend's birthday and the food was wonderful, the ambiance was great. They have different seating configurations and also normal table and chairs. I strongly suggest to reserve in advance.

Going into this restaurant you feel like you are in Lebanon. Wonderful food and good service. Meza for 2 was great and the kofta was delicious. Hard to believe there is a such good Lebanese restaurant in Costa Rica. Will go back.

Really wonderful meal with delightful and unique ambiance. We ordered the Mezza for 2, and they had a special that day that meant it came with 2 pitchers of Sangría. A) we loved almost all of it! I think it was a little heavy on the rice, but at least all of them were uniquely flavored. Also... DELICIOUS hummus, and... More
