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! .

One of the best hummus and falafel I've had! Crispy falafel and heavenly hummus enjoyed in a very cosy atmosphere.

Mussaka, sushi, osso bucco, beef carpaccio were my favs!! The fresh baked bread along with delicious cocktails are great too. Gets crowded by 5ish for dinner. Might want to get there early.

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.

Very good food and service. Clean and friendly. The food is quite international with a costa rican-touch. Better to make a reservation.

The sushi was excellent, fresh & tasty. I craved it for the rest of the week but unfortunately they were only open for dinner... The appetizers were superb. Delicious hummus & salads and the mint lemonade was super refreshing. The only complaint which was the same towards all restaurants, it took forever to get drink refills.
