Amazing food and lovely staff!

This restaurant is a great place to visit if you're ever in Jaco! You can't go to Jaco and not go to graffiti! The ambiance is amazing with cool graffiti on the walls, and the wine list is extensive. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The owners also own a restaurant called side street, which... read more

MUST GO!!!! Katie, the co owner with her husband, is an amazing hostess, waitress and everything else!!!!! The food is absolutely impeccable. I had the cacao and coffee steak and it was my best meal in Costa Rica! (Besides what I ate at their other restaurant "Side Street") Thanks graffiti!!!

Ok Graffitti has been my #1 restaurant in all of Costa Rica for about 4 years now, but my meal last week and tonight have forced me to do another review. You have to be a "foodie" sometimes to appreciate how great a restaurant truly can be because sometimes they can get lazy. But when you read the menu, and... More

Really love this restaurant and have visited many times. The lobster corn dogs are really good. They had lobster lasagna as the special one time and it was sooooooooooooooooooooo awesome!!! Please, please, please put it on the main menu in the future. I keep coming back looking for that lasagna. Best meal I've had in Jaco and hopefully you'll have... More

This was our last dinner in jaco before we flew home. We were really looking forward to the meal. However, two of our meals were under cooked (the burger and steak). It was pretty disappointing, especially since all of our other meals on this trip have been amazing.

amyg174, We hate that we were not given the opportunity to provide you with a more positive experience at our establishment. Your server approached the table twice throughout the consumption of your meal and asked if everyone was happy and enjoying their food- never once was the "under cooked food" mentioned by any guest at your table. The next time... More

My wife and I went for a light dinner. I wanted to get their steak, but it was huge and too much for that night. Then I spotted the small 4 oz. coffee crusted steak over salad and both of us opted for the same thing. The steak didn't taste like coffee...it just tasted GREAT! It was medium rare and... More

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. It was everything other reviewers say. The food was delicious in an interesting, relaxed atmosphere. Additional things you should know: 1). It's tough to find, tucked away in a shopping center. Look for the KFC and Pizza Hut in Jaco...it's just across the small side-street from there. 2) there is a kids menu, which... More

After first trying the sister restaurant, Side Street, we decided that we wanted to go to Grafitti for dinner. My husband and I were both very impressed. We tried many different items and everything had bold, exciting flavors.....from the salad, to the lobster bisque soup, to the shrimp pad Thai......not to mention the amazing French fries and dessert:). Highly recommending... More

This place reminds me of Brooklyn, NY (Williamsburg to be specific). It has an eclectic design, awesome food and a live DJ. This is definitely the place to go for a nicer dinner in Jaco. It's pricier than other places in town but was well worth it to me. I think the menu rotates often but I had some really... More
