MOST IMAGINATIVE RESTAURANT IN JACO!

GRAFFITI is my favorite restaurant in Jaco. It serves up excellent Asian/Tico Fusion dishes with imagination. Service is excellent, music is low, prices are not bad. Only, try to find it! Ask a native, if you can find one. Clue, it faces the inside of a triangular shopping strip at the apex... read more

Amazing food, very cool atmosphere, friendly staff. This is a very high end restaurant, in terms of dishes, flavours, and plating however you will find anyone from surfers to business people eating at this restaurant.

Overheard a couple talking about how good this restaurant was at the pool one afternoon and so glad we tried it. It was one of our favorite restaurants of the trip! It's a small café, very casual with funky décor and they had hands down the best food compared to all the fancier, upscale restaurants we visited while in Costa... More

The best dinner we had in Jaco! Tucked in the corner of a shopping center off the main drag. Service was friendly and accomidating and the food was spectacular! The Burger is a must; perfectly seasoned and stacked high on a delicious bun! Margarita was made from juice, not a mix and was perfecto! Save room if you can for... More

We had a group of us in Jaco for 4 days in which we ate at Graffiti 2 of them. Everyone absolutely loved the food and service here. I highly recommend the Beef Tenderloin or the Tuna but really you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. AMAZING!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it....

Our experience at Graffiti ranks in my top 5 all-time dining experiences! It was amazing! The service was great, the food was amazing, and the ambiance was one that made us feel that we had found a hidden gem, which we did!

We've been staying in Jaco many many times but only now found our way to Graffiti. I'm glad we did because such a relaxed athmosphere, good service, tasty food and well-made (a bit pricey...) cocktails are hard to find. The menu was short with vegetarian options but the ones they had were delicious. Worth going.
