Comfortable restaurant, very clean. Food was delicious with multiple vegan options. I got the hummus and falafel (only restaurant in town with hummus on the menu!). Excellent with homemade bread!! Our server, Martin, was very attentive throughout the meal. Highly recommended!

We had walked by Puggo’s all week on our way to and from town. We finally had dinner there last night, and don’t we wish we’d tried it earlier in our vacation! The “Maya” sushi roll is amazing, and the service and general vibe is...More

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! .
