Was pleasantly and extremely surprised that Jaco had such a tasty restaurant. Local ingredients and flavors done to perfection, we ran the gambit from sliders to fish dishes, all consistent and excellent. Honestly this restaurant is far better than a lot of over priced restaurants you would find in any major cities.

At Graffiti they know what they are talking about...this is a MUST if you are travelling in Puntarenas and tired of the same 'ol same 'ol costa rican rice and beans. This is the real fata morgana! Excellent food, excellent service at a reasonable price. We are certainly going back!

We dropped in to Graffiti towards the end of our trip after an unsolicited recommendation from a fellow diner we met at another highly rated restaurant. Fortunately, they had a table for two without a long wait, but I would definitely make a reservation next time. The restaurant is small but lively and has lots of personality. I opted for the cucumber basil martini, which was refreshing and pretty similar to one of my favorite drinks at home. My husband wanted an Imperial, but was surprised to learn they did not offer the local beer. To start, we went with the tuna tartare tower and it was absolutely fabulous! I was a large portion and plenty for a generous appetizer for two. So YUMMY! that I was scouting a recipe to remake at home. I ordered the beef filet from the menu and my husband had the tuna from the menu. The flavors were bold but the filet was not as tender as it could have been, and I think there was still a string tied to the beef. However, it was delish and way too much to eat after the app. The tuna was also tasty with bold flavors. We skipped dessert since we were already stuffed. While we did not have wine, the restaurant had one of the nicest selections we came across in Jaco. The restaurant was one of the "most happening" that we visited on our trip.

This is a cozy restaurant with great service and wonderful food. The plate presentations were work of art and the food quality top notch. I enjoyed a great meal with several bottles of ice cold wine and would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Jaco.
