My wife and I found Graffiti after some searching and it was worth it after a hot day. We were greeted by the owner, Kate, who was extremely friendly and gracious. Shared some nice wines and appetizers. The dinners looked good but we left before dinner. Definitely one of the top places in Jaco.

While vacationing in Jaco last week, four of us dined at Graffitti Cafe and Wine Bar. We had heard so much about it and were excited to give it a try. We all found it to be good to very good but it did not meet the expectations we had built up about the restaurant. We also went to another... More

We ordered chicken and a burger that was not good. Chicken tasted like seaweed and burger was pink. They did fix the food but we were not impressed with the food at all. The prices are high considering it was less than wonderful food. The next night we tried lemon zest and were much happier.

Hello Ashley! We were surprised by your negative review. The evening you and your partner dined with us you sent your food back to the kitchen, claiming the burger was under done and the chicken was not to your liking. You were upset and ready to leave. We apologized and explained that our policy was that if you did not... More

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and it didn't disappoint. All of the waitresses are American and it made it easy to inquire about food allergies. Our waitress was from Florida and did a great job.

My bride of 34 years and the wonderful couple we were traveling with had dinner at Graffiiti Restro Cafe on 2/14/17. We had heard good things about it from many other travels and from the folks who worked at the place from which we rented our beach condo for the week. I was totally blown away. I ordered the tuna...

Our group of 4 all thought our dinners were excellent. The waitresses were very attentive and friendly. I would recommend reservations because the restaurant is fairly small and usually full. Two of us had their ribs which were very good.

What a pleasant surprise tucked in a rear corner of a plaza-strip mall. Delicious creative martinis to start followed by an arugula salad and very fresh yellowtail cooked perfectly with a soy glaze. My husband had the beef with chocolate/coffee glaze, cooked as he ordered very rare. The "Elvis" dessert was not to be missed(shared was plenty). Young, energetic staff... More
