Description: 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! .

Nice place and really good oriental ceviche and sashimi. Also the moussaka was very good. Definetly a place to visit when you are in Montezuma.

this chic spot was recommended to me by a local (my super cool yoga teacher), and it definitely did not disappoint. the chef-prepared meal was made fresh w/ whole, natural ingredients, this taking some time- BUT because of the small wait (also due to the large crowd) they brought me the most amazing homemade bread complimentary while I waited. talk about thoughtfulness for their patrons! the music set the hip vibe and energy for the ambiance. and while I didn't order any sushi, the couple next to me did and it looked like a work of art. One of the best places I have dined at in Costa Rica...

Like everything else in Montezuma, this is a bit pricy, but the food was good. One day I tried sushi, and the other day I tried a sald with some kebabs with rice and vegetables. The sushi was good, not excellent but not bad, and the Mediterranean food was very good with slight exception of the vegetables but that was just my personal taste. Their homemade focaccia is really excellent and tasty, one of the best things in my meal. Their salad portion was huge, much bigger than what I expected, and it was very tasty. Their nonalcoholic drinks are also good, their lemonade with mint is very refreshing.

Puggo's is kindof two restaurants in one. There's the standard Puggo's menu and also a sushi menu that I believe is open Thursday-Sunday or thereabouts. I can't speak much for the main menu, but the sushi menu is great. The rolls are so-so, but the specials are always on point.
