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! .

The bread here is the best bread I've had in Central America. The hummus, Moroccan fish stew, moussaka, and sushi are my... read more

The place is trully cosy and the staff is very friendly. The food was also amazing, the sushis and the humus on appetizer were the best we had in a very long time, on top of that the fish as a main course was delicious ! I trully recomend this restaurant.

We went to Puggo's after reading about it on TA. The place was very busy but we were given a table straight away. I ordered 2 starters as loved the sound of them and my son went mad on the sushi. The food is DELICIOUS! The smells, the taste, the presentation...everything! We couldn't eat dessert as we were so full.... More

Food was absolutely delicious and a much needed breath of fresh air after 2 weeks of Casados or bad hamburgers, but very expensive. 40$ for 2 main dishes and 1 first course. However, the portions were generous and had we known, we would have ordered less.

The foukacha bread that comes with every meal is amazing! Make sure you come hungry because portions are big and delicious! I'ts probably the only place in the world you can eat humus, sushi,...

Montezuma doesn't have a lot of great dining options, so we were extra happy to find Puggo's! And since we found this restaurant, we never went anywhere else for dinner anymore (we were in Montezuma for a week). We met the owner and the waitress, both really friendly and outgoing. The service was great! And the food... We tried pretty... More
