We are spending Christmas in Jaco and last night had the pleasure of dining at Graffiti. The food was simply outstanding and the service was excellent. We began with a trio of sliders that included a classic american slider, a blue cheese and bacon, and a pineapple and teriyaki that were fabulous, followed by their "Infamous" coffee and cocao encrusted...

I have been in Jaco for about 2.5 weeks now, and have eaten here 3 times already, and will most likely get in one more meal before heading home. The food is amazing, not only high quality ingredients but excellent preparation and flavour and texture combinations. The atmosphere is very relaxed and fits in with the true sense of the... More

On the recommendation of previous Trip Advisor reviewers, we five went to Graffiti without a reservation. No problem getting seated, but we were fortunate because even on a Monday night the place filled up fast. Our servers were efficient but friendly, and though they warn you that they're not about "fast ", we didn't feel like we waited long...nor did... More

thank you very much for taking the time to write such a positive review for our restaurant. We work very hard to provide great food and good service in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.

Great food and entertainment like always. Last night I stuck with one of my favorites 3 blackened tuna taco's for $10. And they where amazing as usual. Also there was a nice reggae musician playing music in the background witch made it very nice. I would recommend Graffiti to anyone as there is something for every ones taste buds. And... More

Graffiti has a nice, diverse menu with interesting offerings. I only eat fish, so they always have several good fish options. They have a new little gift shop opening that I want to visit soon!

What an exciting and fulfilling experience. I've been living in Costa Rica for about a year and have gotten used to paying over $100 for a so-so meal, but at Graffitti you can expect MUCH more. The food and wine are stellar, the prices are more than reasonable, and the staff is friendly and laid-back. Go in with a good... More

I thought the best steak I'd ever had was at Gordon Ramsey Steak in Las Vegas, but the tenderloin at Graffiti was better! The Tuna Tar Tar Tower was also fabulous. Wine list is very nice and service was great.

Excellent place. Very nice environment with great food and fair prices. we had a really good time. The only thing is that they hardly speak Spanish. Other than that, it was awesome!
