We visited Graffiti Restaurant for dinner and was surprised by the decor and the menu. The restaurant is warm and inviting and CLEAN, something not found in most restaurants in Jaco. The food was to die for and we would highly recommend. After visiting most of the restaurants in Jaco, it's hard to believe that Graffiti is not the top... More

One of the better meals we shared in Jaco. The sauteed mushrooms were excellent, and all of the cocktails we had were delicious. We didn't have a single dish we were unhappy with and we all ordered something different. The service was great, and the staff was very personable. Party of 6 and no wait, tho it might be a... More

It is small restaurant with a great atmosphere. The food was very good. The service is slow, but it is the norm in Costa Rica. I had the Seabass which was amazing! I would go back.

This is the trendiest place in Jaco. The food is good and the waitresses are attractive. The music can be too loud, the wait can be long and the prices are a little above the quality. The chef is better with seafood than beef or chicken.

I´ve been to the place twice, the first time I decided to try some of the options they had in the menu of the day, and I was mind blown. We were four guys and shared dishes and every single thing that came to the table was just amazing. So one month later I decided to come back with a... More

This cafe is a nice, casual place serving more upscale food than most in town at fair prices by Costa Rica standards.The quality of the food is good, good sized portions and solid service. The ffod ranges from easy going fish and chips to far more upscale dishes like the tuna and steaks. All in all a very good find... More

I heard a lot of positive reviews about Graffiti and it did not disappoint . Had the tuna and it was perfect. I expected long service time but it was actually very prompt . Sides were good as well ( rice and some vegetables that were NOT overcooked ) and a light flavorful sauce accompanied it all. Best meal in... More

Ordered: 1. Apple, bacon, bleu cheese crostinis 2. Nut crusted sea bass 3. Beef tenderloin I recommend all of these. The cocktails were a bit sweet and could use some work but the food made up for it.

a GREAT dinner stop in CR. In our group we got the coconut shrimp, chicken wings, petite filet, fish tacos, burger and the "Elvis Presley" desert. it was all amazing! I also recommend the strawberry mojito and the Voodoo rum punch is good too but VERY strong. One of the owners (a great American couple with a young daughter) will... More

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. Our concept is to appeal to Anyone with a fine palete for food and drink in a comfortable, climate controlled, safe and intimate setting.
