Went with my husband last night and we weren't disappointed. We ordered the Mezza and everything was very good, including the wine. We will definitely be returning!

I have been their customer for 15+ years and lubnan continues being my favorite place for Lebanese food. Great service, great food, good prices. I grew up living next door to a lovely family from Lebanon, who are still good friends of mine, and this is the closest it gets to eating at my friends house.

There some four ot five parking spaces just in front of the restaurant. Do not spend too much time with the menu, just gonstraight for their special mix of different small dishes, if you're at least two pax. It's really great, and frightingly much! But yoy can manage!

Walked to this lovely establishment in a downpour. I felt bad dripping water in here, but after I placed my order they were super friendly and invited me to grab a seat. A short time later my bag of food was ready. I took it back to my hotel room and it was some of the best middle eastern food... More

At El Paseo Colon, San José downtown, is a good place to enjoy with family, couple or friends. Belly dance shows at night. Think on thursdays; don't remember very well, but you'll have a very good time. Fairly expensive but food is amazing. And they have their OWN homemade garlic paste that won't stop tasting. Tiny parking.

Thank Judith J
