Description: 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! .

Last May, My girlfriend and myself stayed 4 nights in Montezuma. Three of the four nights we dined at Puggo's. The first night we got there early and had a choice of any table. Both of us were in the mood for beef so we each ordered steak. I can't remember exactly what we ordered but take it from an... More

We ate here for dinner last night and the food was delicious. I ordered a sandwich and my husband had fish, and both were great. The service was fast, and the waiter was very friendly. The bread and dip they serve prior to your meal is so delicious! We will definitely be back to try their sushi before we leave!

We had sushi, grilled fish and cocktails here on our last night in Montezuma and were only sad that we had not discovered this restaurant earlier in our trip. The food was fresh, delicious and beautifully arranged on our plates. The waiter was very attentive and made great suggestions for our meal and tropical cocktails. We also enjoyed the music... More

My husband and I went here while visiting montezuma for a week. We LOVED it! The hummus and falafel was absolutely delicious and it came with homemade bread. Husband got crispy tuna with an Asian salad thing. He said it was amazing. Prices were good. Service was so slow because one guy was running the whole place. That's pretty impressive... More

I'd heard about the burgeoning chef community in this small tucked-away town and was anxious to try it for myself. Ate here with friends the first night after arriving in Montezuma, and was not disappointed. Food was outstanding, and a pretty good value. All of us were impressed with our different dishes. Only bad thing I could say is that... More

I enjoyed the fresh sushi and ate here on two occasions during my two week stay in Montezuma. All of the fish seemed to be very fresh. I very much enjoyed my dinner here. I recommend the Watermelon-Basil beverage.

Our waitress Jacqueline was delightful. She help us with our selections and all the other staff members were wonderful. My sons (9 and 7) loved everything we tried. We went three or four times for dinner.

Amazing sushi AND moussaka... in the same restaurant. We kept going back during our stay in the area. Easily the best food we had in Costa Rica, I wish they had a location in Brooklyn.
