Went there food for dinner, food was good, service was fast. They only take cash, though. We had a burger which was very good, and my boyfriend had fish and chips... which weren't that great.

Our group of eight had a delicious evening at Puggo's. I was most appreciative of the timely and sensitive service, but the quality of the food can't be overrated. My favorite was the papaya salad!

Beautiful atmosphere, I had one of the specials -natsu salad (seared tuna and avocado salad) was a beautiful meal, one of my best in Costa Rica. A lovey setting with some lovely smoothies. Would highly recommend this place to anyone in Montezuma.

This place is romantic and offers various dishes and sushi. We had the fish filet which was great and the moroccan fish stew which was excellent. The only drawback is that they do not accept credit cards, so bring cash

The place is cool, very minimal like many places here, but good. Very nice that you can order from the Japanese menu of Natsu and Puggo's.

The menu is a kind of world cuisine, from sushi to humus to pasta and so on. A great idea in a rather boring food landscape. We shared a humus topped with falafel followed by a moussaka which surprisingly came as a slice... Those were...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! .
