Description: 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! .

Great Israeli-run restaurant, with fresh salads and fresh fish. We didn't love the felafel balls, but otherwise great. Make sure to order the mint lemonade. The waitress there was a total sweetheart, gave us advice on what to do. We went back several times.

During our 8 day stay in Montezuma this year, we ate at Puggo's 3 times. A perfect meal for me is to split an Arabic salad (and bread!) and an entree. The cost is reasonable, and you'll walk away happy.

Montezuma wouldn't be the same without Puggo's! All kinds of delicious and fresh food, and probably the best sushi in Costa Rica! Spend the night drinking limonanas (mint lemonade with vodka), eating awesome food and kicking it with Maya and chill staff that work there. My girlfriend and I stayed at Agua Vista and we had one of Puggo's chefs, Victor, cook us a fantastic meal in the comfort of our cabana and it really set the tone for an unforgettable trip so I highly recommend doing that as well!
Maya, it was great meeting you, we love you and thanks for taking care of us in every way!

Very tasty food in a relaxed environment. We went here several times and were not disappointed, on the contrary we were very pleased.

Among all the excellent restaurants in Montezuma, this one gets our repeat business whenever we visit. Our server (she is a teacher from Toronto but I have forgotten her name!) was incredible, she made great recommendations and treated us like royalty. The menu varies from sushi to mediterranian, and the steaks are fantastic. Good food, relaxed ambience and the Beatles playlist one evening created just the right vibe.Order the basil or mint lemonade--unforgettable.
