We had dinner at Puggo's. It is a simple place with delicious food and very friendly service. It is very good value for money. They have sushi and a kind of Arabian meals like falafel, taboule, eggplant rolls etc. We had fish morocco style and also mussaka - simply delicious.

Stayed in Montezuma for 5 days and ate here twice the good is really fresh, tasty and absolutely delicious. The man who served us (possibly the owner, not sure) was always really attentive and friendly. Loved this place. Highly recommended.

Lovely atmosphere. The extensive menu with meals inspired by asian, arabian, European and Costa Rican influences-but mainly by fresh fish-made it soooooo hard to choose! I finally opted for the green papaya salad (refreshing and tasty) and the marroccan fish stew (A-mazing! With fresh naan bread& rice). It was so full of flavors and delicious -yumm! My friends opted for... More

The chef is Mediterranean and the primary menu is a mix of Mediterranean food, such as hummus and tandoori chicken, and Americanized food such as hamburgers and chicken strips. There is a secondary menu for sushi. The sushi chef is... More

Nice restaurant on the main street coming into Montezuma, outside seating, friendly service and a really nice meal. If you want to relax and have some nice dinner conversation well worth the stop.

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!

Got there late and missed their sushi. However this place was a delight. Tabouleh and fried calamari for starters were very fresh and flavourfull. Mains - fried whole fish and tandoori chicken were cooked to perfection and seasoned excellently and the sides were plentifull. Fantastic pineapple chutney too! Would go again and recommend Puggo's

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.

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! .
