It’s a little hard to find Graffiti Restrsto, because it’s wedged in the far back corner of a strip mall near the center of town. But it’s worth the search for food that’s at the apex of what you’ll find in Costa Rica. Each night, a short selection of specials is written on a chalkboard, based on the chef’s whims and what’s fresh. The regular menu is also excellent, featuring Graffiti’s signature cacao- and coffee-crusted tenderloin and Asian-spiced seared tuna. Occasionally there’s live music here, and it’s worth visiting the attached gift shop, which features hand-carved wooden surfboards and unique body-surfing paddles. As you might expect, it’s a hip-looking place with graffiti art covering the walls. Along with the interior dining rooms, there’s limited outdoor seating in the front of the restaurant.
