Lovely setting, good food

Octopus salad was tasty and the seafood risotto was amazing. Great setting by the water where the boats are moored. And if its windy, totally hidden from the wind.

Really lovely place on the harbour - it gets really busy which is always a good sign so I would recommend booking. We ate here twice and I had the tuna steak on a stone which was amazing, we always had the local wine too which was really good and cheap. Even though it's not busy you are not rushed... More

A table for two - thirty something's Mid week Positive's: A brief wait for a table. No problem as we wanted to eat here and we read the menu in that time. Service impeccable. Lots of local guys who are exceptionally friendly, enthusiastic about the food and very relaxed. No rushing of customers. Great price - roughly £14 for steak,... More

Great location in harbour. Good menu and service. Would recommend the tun or beefsteak " on the stone". ( you cook the meat/fish to your own liking ). We ate here 3 night out of 4, which I think sys it all!!

Absolutely gorgeous food! I had the chicken with mushroom sauce and had to go back a second night to have it again because it was so tasty! Amazing views over the marina at night- very romantic.

It is a good restaurant with local food offer. Directly in the port of Bol, very good location. Food is good. It is ok with small kids, however you sit almost on the water, be carefully! :)

Pumparela has been by far the best restaurant in Bol. We had to wait in line for a few minutes, but it was all worth it. The waiters were really friendly, helpful and with a good sense of humour and even though the resturant was full, we didn't have to wait for our food more than 10 min max. There... More

We had dinner twice at this restaurant located next to the small city's harbour. The position is great and so was the food. The price is average and the waiter very kind.
