This is a great place -- great food, excellent service, realizing ambience. Love the falafel. All the menu options are good -- the mixed plates are the best. Just let the waiter make the choices for you, especially if you are new to Middle Eastern cuisine. Will return as often as my travels bring me to Costa Rica.

Our tour guide recommended this place since my husband is Lebanese. A couple from our tour went along and raved about the food; they had never eaten Lebanese food before. Servings were huge, the owner came and spoke with us and we could not have been happier.

I have been at this restaurant several times and on my way out I'm already thinking on my next visit. I tried different dishes every time that I go there but my favorite is the Mezza, it has a bit of everything!
