Location and contact

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

Our family of four had dinner here and we all thought it was delicious and a really cool spot. Interesting menu, but something for everyone. Their home made bread is delicious. This was our favorite restaurant in Montezuma.

It was amazing. The service at this restaurants was very fast. I suggest getting the classic burger. Out of all of the restaurants this one was one of the best in montezuma. I strongly suggest going here.

Delicious food and smoothies . 4 stars instead of 5 because of the strange vibe from the staff. For a beach town you would expect more of a relaxed energy. Recommend Veggie ramen w/ curry sauce Tandoori chicken Pineapple passion fruit smoothie
