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! .

Four of us are Slowly working through the dinner menu night after night. My sister in law comes here every year.

We have had two meals so far. It is all so good. The first night was hummus and Maya roll to start. Main meals were Tuna Lovers, Crispy Tuna, Chicken Tandoori, and Moussaka. The hummus and bread were awesome even though my husband hates mushrooms (it was dressed with a topping). Watching the sushi chef is a treat too.

Last night was oriental ceviche (we have had ceviche for lunch almost every day everywhere we have been) for the starter and we had Moroccan stew, crispy tuna rolls Natsu salad with seared tuna, amd the cheese and mushroom polenta. The watermelon and mint smoothie with vodka was a hit. The drink of the day was awesome too - iced hibiscus tea. The ceviche was a lovely twist on a favourite with oriental flavours of soy and sesame.

Two more nights.

We come once a year from Canada to eat at Puggos. It's actually 2 restaurants with a common seating area. Thr Mediterranean food is terrific and the sushi is unbelievable! We stay in the area for 4 days and eat here every evening.

Puggos has superb food and a very friendly staff. I had an eggplant dish that was incredible. My daughter had hummus with falafel and said it was divine. The ambiance was charming. We had house made churros with ice cream after our meal that was a perfect finishing touch.
