We celebrated my granddaughter’s 6th grade promotion. The restaurant was beautiful and had a nice ambiance. The owners and our servers were very nice. The food and drinks were delicious.

Amazing dinner at Puggo’s - two nights in a row! We usually try out various restaurants when we travel, but here we made an exception to enjoy this again before we leave town in the morning. We got the recommendation from a local and are...so glad we came: the food is simply DELICIOUS, the ambiente great, the service top and Maya is so nice! This definitely is a must-visit when in Montezuma!More

We first went to Puggos to grab some takeout. We immediately loved the vibe. All outdoor seating, great bar area, kids and dogs and cats running around. It's truly a locals/family place. Rodrigo mixed us some delicious cocktails while we waited for our food. We...decided to go back the next night to dine in and had a great meal. We loved the "cigars" and the churros were the best we've eaten. Service was super friendly we got some Nina and Fishy love too. Overall a delightful place!More

Our whole family loves Puggos! The food is amazing, so flavorful and large portions. Prices very reasonable. Very diverse menu to please everyone, including many creative vegetarian and vegan options. NOTE: they have recently moved to Calle Salas, across from the Tierra & Fuego Pizzeria,...but the owner mentioned they been unsuccessful in changing their address on TA to their new beautiful garden dining location. Highly recommend, do not miss!More

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

By far one of the most top notch food experiences I've had in Costa Rica. Not only was the food phenomenal, the level of service and hospitality received is incomparable globally, not just in Costa Rica. 5 star A+
