Best tuna!!

Very popular harbourside restaurant - make a reservation ... There's a line waiting! Go for the hot-stone tuna!! Very delicious. They take creditcard - which is actually rare many places in Croatia.

A very friendly waiter and great food made our visit a success. You get steaks served on a hot stone plate, so you can fry it to your own liking. The restaurant is nicely located on the waterfront, but there is a quite busy pedestrians only street passing right through the place.

Service was very good and food was amazing. Remember to order some bread! Great location too. We went twice and sampled different meat/seafood meals and it was all perfect.

Bustling location right by the harbour. I've eaten here twice - one fantastic squid risotto and one decent prawn and green tagliatelle. Really nice fresh bread both times and the house white wine was pleasant enough. The place always seems to be busy but the service is fast.

Would not normally stop at a place like this as it is a typical tourist trap. However having seen the "steak on a stone" the evening before,decided to give it a try. Best piece of rump steak that I have had for ages. You can cook it how you want, and the stone stays hot for ages. Washed down with... More

What a stunning location! Right by the harbour, beautiful place. Multilingual staff, lovely food. What more could you ask for? The steak served on a sizzling platter seemed a bit of a gimmick but a great way to get it cooked exactly how you like it! Really nice food.

Generally speaking if every table is full in a restaurant, it's a good sign. We decided to eat here as it was booming with people, we had to que for around 20 minutes but the manager brought us 2 beers on the house whilst we waited, I mean that's good service! Food was amazing, home made bread, chicken and the... More

Our entire family (9 of us) vacationed on Bol and found ourselves going back to the Pumparela Restaurant 4 or 5 times. We even got to know the waiters. The food in excellant and the service great. This is a special place in a little harbor right on the Adriatic Sea.

Ok food but nothing special at all. Worst place we tried during our stay in Bol. The only great by the place is the location next to the water!!!
