My cousin and I were greeted by the friendly waiter, who listed the specials of the day. We ordered the Pacific Sushi roll to start -deliciously fresh! As our mains we ordered the Moussaka and Chicken Tandoori. We were impressed that we had a taste of Japan, Mediterranean and Indian food all in one sitting. So impressed we came back... More

I had the ceviche and sushi and my girlfriend had the whole garlic fish. All were absolutely delicious, but the ceviche definitely stole the cake. Super fresh and delicious, among the best I experienced throughout my 2 weeks in Costa Rica.

A small group of us went of a quiet Monday night and had the the Crispy Tuna and Moussaka. The service was quick and our waiter was great. The meals were large and the tuna was amazing. It was enveloped in a crispy layer of batter and seeds on top of a bed of balsamic infused lettuce. A very light... More

Puggo's have two menues: one for sushi and one for all the other stuff. The sushi looked awesome on the other tables, but we were in the mood for something else. We had a burger and fried chicken, both with fries. It was alright, but nothing out of the ordinary. The atmosphere is nice and the server very sweet.

After we sit down and watch the menu, the... More

We went for dinner and order a fish burger and a moussaka. The food was full of fat and oil and the place look dirty like the bathroom

We had a good meal here. The tandoori chicken was really tasty. My daughter had the burger, which was huge! The mint/lemon iced drink was so refreshing! The only problem was the lack of staff. There was basically 1 waiter for the whole place and when it got busier as we were there, he got overwhelmed. The people next to... More

We went to this restaurant several times and every single time it was great! The service was on a level of European Standard. We simply felt welcome and cared about every single minute. Additionally the food was more than delicious! The possibility to watch the sushi-chef do his creations was another highlight. They also offer more typical Latin American cuisine,... More

We went here twice we liked it so much. My friend is gluten free and there was a bit more choice for her. I had the veggie burger and the tandoori chicken - both were great! The service is fast considering there was only one guy waiting on.

Thank Jennifer S

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! .
