Finding Quality Meats in this area is almost impossible, how Graffiti is able to do it so much better than anyone else is impressive! Braised pork ribs with Argentinian chimichurri was one of the best dishes I've had anywhere! The vanilla cheesecake is made in house and no exaggeration, the best! I loved the art work and energy, can't wait... More

I'm from Texas. Been to Jaco three times about a total of four months. This place is amazing. The coffee cocoa crusted steak, this steak amigo, is the best freaking steak I have ever had. Ever. In the heart of beef country, Texas, I've never had any this good. The rest of the menu is great. Full bar and decent... More

We have never been disappointed when we have eaten at Graffiti. The food, service and drinks are exceptional. Try the Tuna Tar Tar Tower for an appetizer and the Coffee and Cacao rubbed Beef Tenderloin for dinner. Daily specials are always available. A "can't miss" stop in Jaco.

Food quality-wise - As good a restaurant as anywhere we've been in the world. Courteous smiling staff who are not in a hurry. Varied menu for any type of foodie. Would love to go again.

Located in Jaco in Pacific Center Plaza with parking (a plus in Jaco where it is difficult to find parking). Small menu with a good variety of choices. Their spacial's board had excellent options. Good wine selection reasonably prized. Their pork ribs and the 15 cm hamburger were the high of the evening.

We landed at Graffiti on our last day in Jaco. Per the other reviews, I had to try to tuna tower and tenderloin. It did not disappoint! Our server did a great job keeping up on our drinks and food. Service is very important to us and is not found in most establishments throughout Jaco. If you are in the... More

We had an amazing experience here. The food was delicious - I had the pork rip special with an Argentinian chimichurri and a glass of red sangria. I was glad to see they included the cinnamon in the sangria. Overall, it was a memorable dinner. Our waiter was helpful and kind. The atmosphere was great and the food supreme. Thanks!

This was by far the best meal I've had in Costa Rica. The tuna tar tar tower appetizer was so flavorful I didn't want it to end. I had a delicious grouper fish encrusted in macadamia nuts and was able to try all of my friends' food as well. We were wishing we had more time on this vacation to... More

For an appetizer the Edamames were awesome, salty and spicy. Great burger also, but when the flat bread came there were no artichokes, no caramelized pears, and no arugula as listed on the menu ... if you don't have the ingredients to make something say so ahead of time. Although expensive, they have a nice wine selection. Nice atmosphere and... More

If in Jaco you must eat here. Our group ordered many of specials the 2 nights we dined here ,and they were all excellent. The coffee and cacao rubbed tenderloin and elvis are both superb and not to be missed. Service and vibe are great as well!
