Dinner next to the small harbour

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.

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

Nice location and the staff was attentive enough, however the food was SO bad. My boyfriend and I went here for my birthday lunch and wanted a nice hamburger. What we got was a disgusting piece of something that looked like meat, a few cold fries, raw onion and some kind of dressing. Would not recommend this to anyone.

That's right. This little place has a charming way of serving its meats and that is still cooking on a sizzling stone. Great idea and means you can cook the meat to just how you like it. The seafood was exceptional and very fresh. Service was good and views amazing. Incredibly busy but you can see why.

Ordered seafoood pasta. Hit lots of shell pieces in it. Good flavor. Felt like I waited 20 minutes to get bill after I finished.

The meat was delicious, and the waiter very friendly. Good house wine to go with your steak. Nice location on the harbour.

One of the busiest restaurant in the town, I think this is thanks to their surroundings. We were queuing for a few minutes. We were really lucky as we got place at the outer side. Attentive staff, polite and quick. I am not too sure about the food thought. We were a group of 4 people - my BF's seabass... More

Went here for fish and we were not disappointed. I wasn't overly hungry but I shared the muscles with my friend and they were delicious. I also has the scampi that you had to take the shells off of, can't remember what the dish was called but once again, it was delicious. If we were in Bol for longer, I'd... More

We visited Pumparela twice in our week stay in Bol and the food was great!! My husband had beef steak and I had tuna steak on hot rocks. These were perfect as we could cook them as little or as much as we liked (I like my food very well done). The quality of the steaks themselves were fantastic and... More
