Came recommended but is was just okay. GF and I had their infamous steak. Cut of meat was fine but both a little overcooked. Salads came with the wrong dressings. Maririnis were just average. Thinking we caught them on a off night. Our waiter was very pleasant.

Stopped in Jaco for a couple days while traveling all around Costa Rica for two weeks. A lot of people thought Graffiti was one of the best restaurants out there so I had to stop by for dinner. Cool little place nice atmosphere. Smaller than you'd expect and busy. Had to eat at some overflow tables outside. Ordered petite filet,... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Jaco. Food is always fresh and tasty. Any of there fish dishes taste great. Try the tuna tartare appetizer it one of my favorites The cucumber and basil martini is very refreshing and unique.

Everyone told us about Graffiti being Jaco's best restaurant, but it has no exterior signage & is difficult to find without explicit directions. It is moving soon to a new location on the Main Street, which will help in finding it. The service, all of it by young, pretty women, was perfect. The food, from an extensive menu, was to... More

The food and serice was great. The red sangria was even better. There was a small band playing in the background which made the experience even better. I would say, this was the best place to eat in Jaco. The burger was amazing as was several other things we had.

My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner here. Food was delicious and the service was good as well. I'd say Grafitti is a close second, for the best restaurant in Jaco.

Food and service were great! The actual owner was on the floor tending to our every need. Servers were friendly and attentive. Both the food and beverage were superior to every other place we visited while in Jaco. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GRAFFITI!!!

This restaurant was recommended by Kim and Tim from the ReMax office in Jaco. We all loved Graffiti, which is located in the same shopping center as ReMax. It's a little hard to find (in back of the mall near ReMax), but definitely worth the search. The food and service was great! The service people all speak English very well... More
