There has been a lot of talk about GraphQL vs REST. As Zdenek Nemec
points out in this article, the discussion is a bit more complicated than the arguments that are commonly brought to the table. The author argues that when following a strict REST approach, REST can be superior to GraphQL in many ways. At the same time, "True REST APIs are incredibly hard to pull off" and so rare that the author can "count them on two hands". In the end, deciding between REST and GraphQL remains a tradeoff and decisions should be made according to specific use cases. Reading this article, you'll be well-informed when you have to make the decision of how to design your next API. An excellent read!
