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! .

great lunch

The three of us ate their fish and chips. Excellent quality and not expensive. They offered us free foccacio bread before the meal. Very friendly.

The food and atmosphere were so good here that we ate here three times and in fact had the beef carpaccio and the Mediterranean fish stew twice. the carpaccio was mouth-wateringly good and the fish stew so flavoursome and served with wonderful home made focaccia bread. they also had a really lovely dark beer. we also had the beetroot carpaccio...

Puggo's might not offer an ocean view, but it does offer great food and a funky ambience. The dishes pack a punch both in terms of presentation and flavour. The green papaya salad was just divine, and the vegetarian sushi almost too beautiful to eat. Everything we had was wonderfully fresh. The service is relaxed but still professional. Make sure...

Had lunch there twice and it was pretty good. Service is a bit slow and the waiter wasn't all that friendly. I like the fish sticks and fries. My friend got the burger and said it was pretty good too. We enjoyed sitting and watching people walk or ride by.

Puggo's is a cute funky place in Montezuma right by the side of the road.The ceilings are painted blue with clouds and the bathroom has water coming out of a seashell to wash your hands. The ceiling fixtures are Chinese lanterns with cone shaped paper cups stuck on them that really draw your eye to the place. The Sushi guy... More

So much variety on their menu and it is all presented so well! I was not hungry leaving this place. I visited twice and I was very happy both times :) it gets very busy so seating is sometime hard. Try their lime and mint crushed ice drink ♡
