Puggo's Restuarant is located just off the beach in the small town of Montezuma. The owner is a world traveler who has found her home in Costa Rica. Her menu and its flavours are a direct reflection of her life experiences. From the fresh local fish to the slow cooked osobuco and moussaka, you can taste the love she has for her food. She uses a range of ingredients, from local organic chocolate to spices she brings directly from her home country of Israel. Puggo's also has a fresh sushi bar which specializes in a range of asian inspired dishes using locally caught fish and prepared right in front of your eyes. The atomsphere is friendly and relaxed and the multilingual staff is happy to recommend not only their favourite dishes but beaches as well! .

They have a great variety and the atmosphere is perfect. Sushi is a must too! Great ambiance and the owner was really nice and genuine. It has a Mediterranean flare as well as other entree choices.

The first time I went there I had a very good sushi, so I came back a second time and I asked for the 2 butter fish. Quite delusional :(

After just reading the menu for 5minutes we decided we would need to come back multiple times! Such a good selection of food and everything we ordered on all of our visits was exquisite.

Food here is great. It is a little more on the expensive side for Montezuma but so worth it. The hummus dish is delicious. I ate here several times on my two weeks visit.
