Good restaurant in jaco. The burger and the beef in particular are very nice. They have nice wines too and the place is well decorated. Desserts are fine also but not as good as the rest of the menu. There is a safe free parking lot in front of the restaurant.

Wish I would have ate there every night! Everything is great. Wife even ate tartar and is not a fan in general. Wine is well priced and they have wifi so you can keep the little guys entertained.

We have been to Graffiti twice and I must say it was great. The place is quite original with all the paintings and graffitis. The service was excellent and the waitresses always make sure you enjoy your time! We tried the tuna steak and the huge hamburger the first time and it was really delicious! The second time we had...

We ate at this restaurant our first night in Costa Rica. If you're looking for local cuisine, it's probably not your best bet but it was good! Food was more American so we liked it but it wasn't the local-style restaurant we wanted.

The food is delicious and creative, great atmosphere. Staff is always friendly, great drinks and occasionally live music. A couple blocks away there is another restaurant owned by the same people called "Side Street Cafe". This is one of my favorite places for lunch. The food there is also unique, high quality and very colorful like Graffiti. Bread for sandwiches... More

My wife and I were staying at Punta Leona about 20 minutes north of Jaco. We decided to visit Jaco for the afternoon and evening. We enjoy high-end and also road stands for food as long as it's good, or authentic but most of all clean. We weren't very impressed by Jaco as a town. Extremely touristy. Too many beggers... More

I can't say enough about how fantastic the food was at Graffiti. I had the Tuna Tataki Salad and Beef tenderloin and I can't say I've had a better meal anywhere. Interesting atmosphere off the main road with artwork and an eclectic crowd. Oh, and the dessert... YUM!!! Great English speaking service. Take the next right after the Subway and... More

Graffiti's steak rubbed in coffee and cacao was really amazing. My brother said it was by far the best steak he ever ate. My only compliant was it was not cooked evenly , some parts were medium some parts extremely rare. We all ordered medium should of done medium well for more of the medium we wanted. To be fair...
