Graffitti has the best non fruity cocktails in Jaco. The cacao coffee steak, available as an entree or salad, is inspired. Personally, I loved the live music, but some in my group thought it too loud.

We were in Jaco several years ago and just returned. We have never had a better meal here than at Graffiti's last night! The food was fresh and delicious with exquisite presentation. The beef tenderloin was to die for and sangria the best I've had. The staff was attentive and prices very reasonable for this upscale restaurant. Since it is... More

Graffiti is sort of an upscale restaurant with a very energetic, lively setting. We were lucky enough to get a table for two the first time we walked in. We loved it so much that at the end of our meal we booked a second reservation! The service was excellent. When we went they had friendly and attentive staff who... More

We all had great meals at Graffiti. Be sure to get a reservation in advance. Everything was fresh and the menu was quite varied. I had sea bass and others had grilled cheese dinners or fish and chips! It doesn't matter- all were good and the drinks were great too. The location is in the back of a strip shopping... More

We had reservations at six but showed up early as we were starving. The staff was more than happy to accommodate our change in plans. However, I highly recommend reservations. By the time we left, the place was full. The food was outstanding. Fresh, high quality ingredients and wonderfully prepared and presented.

I was anxious to try Graffiti Bar and Grill during my two week stay in this area of Costa Rica. After failing to be able to secure a table at a suitable time during our first week(we were a large group of 10),we planned well in advance for our reservation on a Tuesday night our second week. The evening turned... More

My husband & I just spent a wonderful month in Jaco, Costa Rica. Graffiti was absolutely the best restaurant! We ate there twice when different friends came down to visit. Since we are from the Midwest, I was a little cautious about ordering the cacao & coffee rubbed steak, but it was better than any steak I had ever had.... More

My wife & I had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. We did not have a reservation, but we were lucky to get a small table for two right at the bar. I had pork chops with ginger pair chutney, and believe me it was so delicious. My wife had grilled ham and cheese sandwich with a salad, and it... More

The food is amazing and unique, and the service was excellent. The whole vibe is really good, and there were some very good local beers available. Don't miss a stop in the little shop next store...great art, custom surfboards and hand planes. Can't wait to go back.
