I had their ramen and their falafel from their booth at Envision Festival in Uvita and both were so good I might just have to plan a trip to Montezuma to eat it again! I love falafel so in the four days I was at...this festival, I ate falafel from three different booths. Both others paled in comparison to Puggos! It is a little more on the expensive side of things however. I don't have any pictures to share as I was too busy eating, but highly recommend. And shout out to the guys who worked Envision; they were always the busiest booth and still did a great job!More

You need a car to get here. Or a taxi. good food, decent prices, When the sushi bar is open they have some great choices with fresh tuna - and not just sushi. Now ultra modern design. Nice servers.

Went to Puggos with a group of friends, the menu is broad and the Moroccan fish stew and quinoa salad delicious. Fantastic hummus, the sushi from Martin is great as well! Beautiful new hotel Aves is modern and bright and makes a perfect setting for...a night out! Highly recommend!More

We pulled up to Puggo's old location and thought it closed, but it didn't, it just moved! Phew! I'd be heartbroken if I couldn't visit Puggo's again. Their new location is part of a new boutique hotel, up the hill from town, just past the...Canopy Tour (zipline) place. If you haven't been yet, you HAVE to put it on our list when in Montezuma. The brand new environment is bright and modern, with dining poolside. Our group of 6 tried over half the menu and everything was fresh and delicious. Order the hummus. The Moroccan Fish Stew is mandatory, it's a show stopper. The ramen noodle dish was top notch. We also loved the cookies & cream ice cream dessert. Can't wait to be back!More

We were thrilled to check out Puggos this week. The food was inspired with a twist on Mediterranean and very vegetarian friendly. There is also a sushi bar and the chef came over to walk me through how he could veganize the maki and even...spice them up. Dessert was a unique take on tahini and ice cream that really surprised and delighted. The setting is in the Aves hotel, pool side, which is super modern - feels like Miami in the Costa Rican jungle.More

Puggo's has a new location, poolside at Aves Resort. The new building is beautiful and they added items to the menu. The Mushroom is a vegan delight! Puggo's has the best sandwiches too, served on their amazing bread. You have to try the green papaya...salad!More

Puggo's Restaurant has a GORGEOUS new location at Aves Hotel and Resort. It's modern, clean, and poolside. Views of the hotel and giant Pochote tree. Their food is so flavorful. My favorite dishes are the beef carpaccio, falafel and hummus, both salads are amazing, and...the sushi is so fresh and delicious!More
