This is a very artistically decorated resturaunt with great ambiance and music. We had a large groupd of 12 people who all wanted different drinks and wine. The server handled our group with skill and everyone was satisfied. The food selection is very good and we all enjoyed our meals. It is wise to make reservations as this place gets... More

What a pleasant surprise. Lively atmosphere, great food, fairly priced. Especially recommend the Coffee and Cacao Marinated Beef Tenderloin topped with Caramelized Onions and an Aged Apple Balsamic Pinot Noir Reduction. Exceptional! Excellent service too. What's not to like?

Everything was cooked to perfection, the atmosphere was really incredible and the staff was fantastic. Make sure you have reservations if you want to go here. For travelers with a limited knowledge of Spanish, the staff here speaks English. For dessert we ordered an Elvis - what the waiter described as "french toast on steroids" - french toast with banana,... More

GRAFFITI-Where do I start?.....We took a trip to one of the most exclusive hotels in the area (Marriott los Suenos) but since these places from time to time lack a bit of spice(just a little) we venture to dine elsewhere just to have a little variety during this trip. We researched restaurants while driving to nearby town of Jaco and... More

We spent 6 nights in Costa Rica, and we would all agree that our best dinner was here! This was local culture, not bottled resort you could drop anywhere on the map. Most of us had yellow fin tuna, one had a vegetarian platter. It was great. We almost went a second night (should have rather than going to Crocs... More

We were skeptical of Graffiti at first- from the outside it doesn't look like much, but the interior ambiance is amazing and the food takes it over the top. We had the Ahi Tuna and it was cooked to perfection. The cheesecake- to die for. Overall- this is the best restaurant in Jaco. Hands down. Thanks for the great experience!

From beginning to end you will enjoy every bite. The sangria (red) was delicious with a hint of cinnamon and full of fresh fine chopped fruit. Chile Cabernet and the house Cabernet were top notch. Always listen to specials and they're famous for the beef tenderloin. The Crispy Jumbo Shrimp with Peanut Tai sauce YUM! A side of tropical rice... More
