Has both sushi and middle eastern dishes. My friend and I chose 4 starters........really large portions! Very tasty hummus, focaccia, salad, tabbouleh, egg plant and almond salad. Would really recommend these.....you might want to try a smaller amount to start but they gave us a container to take some back with us! The main courses looked large too. Can't comment... More

They have a pretty varied menu with mostly fair prices. We ordered 3 plates and shared among the 3 of us. Food was good, not so generous portions though.

Puggo's is definitely one of the best restaurant i made during my trip in costa rica. I was globally very disappointed by the food quality in costa rica but puggo's is the exception. Everything was very tasty and good. The service as well was very nice. I definitely recommend this place to everyone coming to montezuma

Don't miss out on this gem. It serves the best tandoori chicken we ever had, and the fish stew was to die for. On top of that, the fresh ice smoothies are delicious. Go!

We are at this restaurant upon recommendation. You never know. We were felt welcomed right from the start. The limon/mint & sandia (watermelon)/basil smoothies were so refreshing. Then came the Tuna (lightly seared) & Avocado salad. The entrée of Dorado (Mahi mahi)with lemon & almond, pumpkin & saffron rice. The fish couldn't be fresher! Thank you for a wonderful meal!...

The burger was super delicious! but wtf we (2) cannot sit at a table for 5 people and have to move to a table for 4?! Nonsense. Same with that "you have to wear a shirt rule" damn in montezuma? That kills kind of the atmosphere of this beautiful place

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! .
