This restaurant really does care about what they serve. The food is truly tasty and pleasant to eat. I did find the fallafel sandwich dry meaning I think they should have put more sauce into it......... The drinks are really good, I especially like the rose water colored lemonade. It is not too sweet but just right. Only complaint is... More

Good places to eat are never a problem to write about or visit. This place is excellent. The food is very good, and the staff is friendly. Top this off with decorative surroundings and you have a great place to go for lunch or dinner. I am a return customer and will continue to be one.

We sought something typically Lebanese and that is what we got! We chose a Mezze and it was lovely. The wine, too, was delicious. The service was ok, but it is rarely that good since i have a different perspective on what is good service compared to most so i'm not making any sort of recommendation in that regard. Be... More

We don't have many choices for real restaurants in David. This one is pretty good and the food seems to be prepared fresh. The food is typical Lebanese food and seems to be somewhat authentic. I will eat here again. Don't expect a 5 star meal and I'm sure you will enjoy it.

My go to spot in David for late night snacks and hookah. Best late night ambiance in the city. Do yourself a favor and order one of the "mesa" samplers. Just try to finish it all haha.

We had the platter for two. The appetizers were the best part. Nice and fresh. Meat was a bit dry but tasty. Had to ask for more salad otherwise it would've been too dry. Side salad should be a bit bigger. Service was fast. We were the only ones there.

The service was good. The food was good - nice to have some authentic Lebanese food in Latin America. An outside patio is available. My partner & I visited with another couple. The bill was about $30 - we each put in a $20 bill and expected about (obviously) change. No one returned so we asked about our change. The... More

Gastronomy is something that transcends the borders of its origins, giving you the opportunity to taste flavors from other lands
In Café Rincón Libanes we have brought an important part of our country to the center of the beautiful city of David in the province of Chiriquí, recreating a traditional Middle Eastern atmosphere that accompanied by our special dishes, allows anyone who enters through the doors of the restaurant leave for a moment the hustle and bustle of the street and relax tasting our menu and drinks, finely prepared for a demanding palate.
In the same way, we include in our options an international type menu, with special cuts of beef and local dishes for those who wish to go traditional. All this accompanied by our wines and beers or a relaxing "Arguile or Hookah" with fruit flavors. Welcome to Lebanon, Welcome To Café Rincon Libanes
