Outstanding food, ambiance, and staff!

We came to Costa Rica on our honeymoon and this was hands down our best meal in Jaco!! My husband swears it was the best grouper he has ever had. I had the coffee and cocoa crusted filet and it was delicious as well. We were only in Jaco for a short time but managed to eat here twice. We... read more

What an unassuming little place with absolutely the best food in Jaco. A little hard to find but worth looking for it. We tried all their "well known" dishes but the Elvis Presley dessert was the best! Steak, tuna, Mahi...all was perfect! Great atmosphere...cozy and quaint. First place I will hit next time in Jaco!

My daughter just had her wedding at the Sandpiper Inn in Playa Hermosa and Graffiti catered the welcome dinner, the wedding dinner and the brunch the following day. I couldn't speak more highly of any catering service. Not only was the food fantastic, the staff was so helpful, friendly and accomodating. We left a few of the decorations that we... More

Coffee and cocoa crusted filet mignon, my husband says the best steak he has ever had ! Ever! He was born in WI, he knows meat! Chard on the outside tender in the inside. I had the crab crusted tuna, also amazing! The most expensive we paid in Jaco, but worth it! Definitely worth it! If you appreciate good food... More

We went to this restaurant after reading about it on trip advisor, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is smaller than the pictures depict but we had no problem getting a spot at 8pm on a Tuesday night during rainy season. The wait staff were American so it was nice to converse with them. There were lots of daily... More

This was one of the best meals our family has enjoyed. Their coffee / cocoa rubbed filet was excellent as was their tuna tower appetizer. Owners are industrious and customer focused. Menu is creative and delicious. Good wines too. Don't miss this jewel of a restaurant if you are in Jako. For a great local lunch also try Restaurantatico which... More

Small restaurant recommended on Trip Advisor. Excellent food and appetizers. I ordered their special tenderloin and it was tender and delicious. My guests ordered their special 7 inch hamburger and loved it. Very good choice for dinner in Jaco.

Had the immense pleasure of dining here several ( 5/6) times during our month long stay in Jaco. It's almost a joke that after having read all the other amazing reviews we decided we wanted to try, but weren't sure where it was. Didn't we feel silly when it was just a stones throw from our balcony (@the Monaco). An... More

This was the best meal we had in Costa Rica. The coffee rub steak was one of the best steaks I've ever eaten and the servers were all really friendly. We had a couple bottles of wine with our supper which were also good and reasonably priced. I would definetly recommend this restaurant and will eat there if I'm ever... More

This is a four star quaint and intimate establishment. Great Food, Fantastic Service and Fine Wine. We enjoyed a blues band while dining called Mustang65. Great place to meet your fellow expats, friendly bunch:)
