Wow. This place is top notch. After a friend recommended we check it out, we went there on our second night. And third. And tried to go the fourth but they were closed (So sad!) But yes, it's that good. The first night we got the purple salmon (beet pickled salmon) which was absolutely amazing and the goat cheese kebabs... More

I pride myself in the fact that I know great food. I also know meh food and acceptable food. Most of the places in Montezuma are decent, but nothing spectacular. We stayed in Montezuma for roughly 2 weeks off and on when exploring the area, and ate at probably 8-10 different places in the area. I WISH I had found... More

Stayed in Montezuma for 3 nights, near by at Hotel Aurora. I happened to read the menu of this restaurant on the walk home from the waterfalls late one afternoon. We had previously eaten dinner around the corner at the well-known Playas de las Artistas, which was a disappointment. I wish I had found Puggo's earlier because this was definitely... More

We wandered there on our first night in Montezuma and went there every night of our vacation (except on Tuesday since they were closed) hee hee hee... The ambiance was cozy and warm... The staff was awesome! Fell in love with our little chef, Maya :) And the Sushi chef was awesome! We tried mostly everything on the menu and... More

Pros: The waiter was very helpful, friendly, and upbeat; I asked about the menu and he described the perfect option to fit my tastes and it was great. The Oso Bucco was fantastic, the best I have had yet! The side items were unique and tasted great as well. The floor is a carpet laid on the ground which I... More

Eating at Puggo's was consistently the best meal I could have in Montezuma! I had the pleasure of getting to know everyone member of their staff and shared in many delicious meals after hours with them including Sushi, Incredible Kabobs, some of the freshest fish Ive ever eaten, and outstanding craft beer. I would recommend Puggo’s to all traveling through... More

Nice place, with lots of seating and decorative design. Staff were attentive and never waiting for service if you need anything. We had the hummus to start which was plentiful but bland. The main course of fish was much better, looks great on the plate and tastes just as good. Also worth having the smoothies, a lot of which have... More

Never came to Montezuma before for quality dining but Puggo's will change that.. Inventive cuisine, and quality classics, best most imaginative sushi EVER and all without losing the chill Montezuma vibe. We ate here 3 times In a ten day stay and each time was better than the last.. Highly recommended..

We have eaten here a couple of times and really enjoyed it. Their bread is delicious, served hot. The moussaka is very good, so are the goat cheese filled kebabs. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Will probably go back again before we leave at the end of the month.
