This restaurant has a funky vibe and a great atmosphere. I LOVE the tuna tower and the coffee coco crusted steak is a must! I had the filet salad and it was so good! We come here every time we are in Costa Rica and it never disappoints!

The food is a bit pricey, but it's worth it! And the mojitos are to die for. Seafood is fresh and has amazing flavor.

Graffiti was recommended by a local gringo friend of ours. The menu was delightfully different and creative than the all of the other restaurants in Jaco and Costa Rica. All of the food was delicious. The owner, Dan from Alabama, was stopped by our table and was very friendly.

My wife and I lucked into this dining experience while we were in Jaco on our honeymoon. It was suggested by the front desk at the hotel. First off its a little difficult to find as many of the locals haven't really heard of it. Its tucked away in a little strip mall just north of a real estate office... More

Graffiti is great dining and now they have expanded the seating so it has many more tables. The service is good, the prices are average for the area. The food is always great.

The food here is great quality every time we come for a meal. The steak is the best in Jaco and everything else taste great as well. The service is fast and friendly and the prices are good for what you get. Would say this is one of the best restaurants in Jaco
