“Food made with love and finesse, service with a smile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We had a great time at Grafitti - cosy surroundings, music at the perfect level, two glasses of wine on the house after a slight table mix-up, and a really interesting menu to choose from, split between the blackboard and table menu. Coconut shrimp was an absolute winner for an entree, and our mains were the infmaous steak, and I had the rockerfeller mahimahi - both full of flavour and delicious. The only thing slightly lacking was the sauvignon blanc, with the white wine list not hugely extensive for sav's or pino grigios. However, cannot fault the food or service at all, and left our stomachs dreaming of steak and mahi mahi for hours afterwards! Thank you very much, we would definately visit again.

“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.
