We enjoyed our dinner at Graffiti. We chose to eat outside, which was lovely. From what we could see of the inside the name fits the restaurant. There was graffiti over a majority of the walls. The food was good. We had the mahi mahi special and the burger. I love a good burger and thoroughly enjoyed this one, however... More

Menu is a bit overpriced and just OK. Many more authentic restaurants in the Jaco area that we enjoyed more.

Serious cooking in the heart of Jaco beach- a little too innovative at times. There steak brushed with coffee and cacao is their signature dish- but we didn't especially like it--although the meat was beautifully cooked and of good quality. My ribs were very fatty- but a wonderful sauce- and the meat was succulent- but it was at least fat...... More

This place is by FAR the most amazing meal I have ever had in Jacó. And I ate off of everyone's plate at the table and I wish I had had all of those entrees too!! Do not skip this place. Off the beaten path but always crowded. So call ahead! It is well worth it!!!!!

Outstanding! Certainly the nicest restaurant we saw in town. We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Food is so delicious, and there's a lot of it. The Elvis desert was one of the best things I've ever eaten. One note we thought it was a flambeau tableside it wasn't but again delicious. I had the coffee rubbed tenderloin and it... More

On the advice from our friend Neil who lives in Jaco and operates Kayak Jaco Tours....we chose Graffiti for a wonderful dinner outing! Call ahead for a reservation! While there we enjoyed the infamous Coffee and Cacao crusted beef tenderloin (awesome), yellow fin tuna steak, crispy shrimp appetizer and nightly board special watermelon/arugula salad. All were fantastic! Don't miss ordering... More

This is a must try if you are in Jaco and don't mind paying a little more for great food. It's not outrageously expensive, but is one of the more upscale restaurants in the area. In my mind, it was worth every penny. The service was friendly and efficient. It's not a quiet place, unfortunately we had a particularly noisy... More

The tuna tar tar tower and an apple blue cheese appetizer we had were outstanding! Our entrees were good, but a bit of a letdown after the appetizers.

Service excellent ,food was excellent , staff was excellent, English was spoken very well , sorry we did not speak Spanish. We made reservations and glad we did, they filled up very fast with the dinner crowd. A little loud with a room full of hard of hearing people like me. If younger middle age may want to eat after...
