Be careful prices in menu and in the bill are different. They don't tell about special prices you will know about that at time when you have to pay. Food is not bad.More

We were here twice. First time for drinks after dinner. The staff was so nice, we decided to pay a second visit for dinner. One member of staff remembered us by name! Very nice! The food was very good, and the service was incredibly friendly.

Excellent food and service will be found here. The grilled meats are so flavorful and cooked to your preference. We started with home made Sangria followed by shared Ceviche and Feta Salad. We enjoyed the Lamb and different cuts of Beef Steaks. The wood burning...grill makes such a difference. There are a few Parrilla type restaurants at home and it is great to experience internationally. A home run all around!More

This restaurant exceeded our expectations. The servers were so informative about the local life and food. The food had amazing flavor. All six of us loved our plates. The food was a bit pricy but you are paying for the quality. If you are thinking...of going out to eat at a nice place with delicious food you must stop here.More

We are here twice during our stay in La Fortuna - excellent selections of Lebanese food. On our second visit, the waiter remembered our names from two days prior. Lebanese sampler is a nice appetizer for two people. Wine selection is excellent.
