I like the atmosphere, the prices, the food. Nothing bad to say about this at all. I ate here four times while staying at the Holiday Inn hotel where this is located. The food was good, the pricing was fair. The service can be a bit slow at times, but seems to be typical in this area of the world.... More

...of a shopping mall in Jaco, you have to seek it out. But, it is worth the effort! Small in size yet big in flavor. Graffiti is best known for the 'coffee rubbed steak' and the killer desserts, but everything on the menu is excellent. Kate & I went twice in a 5 day visit to Costa Rica.

Stopped here for dinner while we were in Jaco. The pork ribs were great and their edamame was a great treat as it was the first spicy thing we had in CR! Be sure to check out their sister restaurant as well (Side Street Bistro) for lunch!

Great restaurant. Very small and you would be smart to make a reservation, even for 2. The food here is great, fresh, local, with some Costa Rican flare. But everything caters to tourists, so you'll get high quality local dishes. We went in fairly last minute with a large family and they managed to accommodate us, which was great. Friendly... More

I've been to Jaco three times and I can't believe I missed this gem. Their food is incredibly good. I had the Sea Bass special and my buddy had their popular steak with the coffee seasoning. We both cleaned our plates and had the Lime Pie and Cheesecake both also delicious. Lot's of flavor and cooked to perfect, all of... More

Graffiti could be seen from our balcony at Monaco where we stayed. We planned dinner there one night and it was amazing. Lobster served like corn dogs as an appetizer, amazing crusted fish, great wine. We even went back one night when it was pouring and we weren't starving. We enjoyed some appetizers and wine and again Graffiti delivered. I... More

A cozy atmosphere that delivers melt off the bone ribs in Jaco, Costa Rica. The New Orleans style pasta is surpassed only by the coffee crushed sirloin. The service is by far is the best in Jaco. Topping off your meal with New Style desserts.

Ate dinner here our last night in Costa Rica.......had the filet with a chocolate and coffee rub. It was melt in your mouth delicious. The restaurant is small so it would be wise to make reservations! We had several locals recommend this restaurant!

Graffiti is a must while staying in Jaco. Tucked in Pacifico Center, we were pleased to happen upon it. Recommend making reservations as it is a small place. The atmosphere and staff are all top notch. Food was incredible from the entrees to the sauces. They have a wide range of island cocktails and even fresh nonalcoholic drinks that were... More
