We have no rules or boundaries when it comes to our food and our ambiance is just as eclectic. We are off the main track and a little difficult to find on purpose.

“Outstanding food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We ate here twice during our trip, and the food was outstanding both times. The service is also great. Can get very noisy at times, however. Highly recommend.

“Ticks all the boxes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Service excellent - the owner is so nice and friendly. What a star.

Food great- all meals ordered were deelish. The coffee encrusted steak is yum.

Wine we had was delicious. We chose the Chilean carmenere.

Dessert also good.

Cannot fault the place. You must go. Best place in what is otherwise a bit of a dump as a town.

“Excellent food, excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

After hearing all the hype, we finally made it to Graffiti and I am sooo glad we did! Great atmosphere, great wine, excellent salads, outstanding coffee crusted steak...I could go on and on. Our server, Matt, was a really nice guy and helped us out when we couldn't decide what to order (the menu is extensive). Even more impressive, when we realized that we forgot to order our daughter's hamburger with nothing on it and it came with mustard, the owner, Katie, overheard and graciously tried to replace it even though it was our own fault. I love traditional Tico food, but if you want a truly delicious (and friendly) experience you will find it at Graffiti!

Checked out the reviews and then realized this little place is around corner from our condo so we went. Very good meal and good service. No disappointments here for us.
