Location and contact

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

This was a great restaurant at the beginning of the village. Very good Marocco style fish, as well as noodles. Go there in the evening, it has nice lights to enhance the athmosphere.

Our family of four had dinner here and we all thought it was delicious and a really cool spot. Interesting menu, but something for everyone. Their home made bread is delicious. This was our favorite restaurant in Montezuma.
