This was a stellar choice for our last night in Costa Rica. The food was amazing, the fish fresh and my son's coffee coated beef tenderloin was to die for. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. My only regret is we didn't have a chance to eat their again before we left.

We ate there on the last night of our trip. The restaurant is much more American than others we went to, but I had no complaints about that. The food was absolutely delicious and fresh. I left sad that I could not come back to try the rest of the menu. I had fish tacos with mahi, key lime pie, and sangria. Everything was reasonably priced, especially for the quality. This restaurant is kind of hard to find and isn't on the beach, but that is the only thing I would change. You can't have everything! Foodies will want to find this place when they pass through jaco! It's a must!

Had the coffee/cocoa marinated beef. Very tasty. The waiter -- an American from Florida there for the surfing -- was able to give a number of good tips on things to do locally. Look, the place is like a cool little neighborhood restaurant in the States. But a cool little neighborhood restaurant in the States is probably good anyplace you find it. But it that's not what you're up for, then you'll be unhappy here. Lots of other alternatives.

We read about Graffiti Restro on Tripadvisor and were determined to go during our short visit to Jaco. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the service was perfect and the eclectic decor is great. I had the tuna tar tar tower to start and was not disappointed. The plantain encrusted snapper special was incredible. The snapper was perfectly cooked and melted in your mouth. I ended the night with the Elvis special - a peanut butter stuffed french toast with banana. I wish I'd saved more room for it and could have eaten more. My fiance had the fish tacos for his main course and was not disappointed. Our only comment would be that the portions are large so you can definitely share a starter and a dessert!
