Late lunch at the Pumparela

We had a late lunch at the pumparela. The food and service were both really good. A little on the expensive side but wht youd expect for the area. We had the Dalmatia meat platter to start amd the Fish platter for 2 and both were very nice.

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!!!

After few days passing by restaurant we decided to sit and eat something. We ordered squid with vegetables, mussels and pasta with shrimps. Squid was tasteless, mussels were good but portions are too small, and shrimps weren't good. For desert se had pancakes and it was disapoiting.

Why did we stop here for dinner ?. It was like eating on the pavement in Oxford Street. Constant traffic alongside every table, through the middle. Ordered the fish for two dish. Wrong. One large fish and one small one. Fair enough. One crayfish each,three unwashed mussels, rubbery squid, and, a dish of potato and kale that resembled cold vomit.... More

My partner and I tried out this restaurant after passing by and seeing it's great location. When we arrived it was too busy to sit outside so the young waiter said we could sit at the side with drinks and it wouldn't be a long wait. Once we were seated we placed our food orders: Mussels and the Sizzling Steak.... More

I came here for lunch on my fifth day in Bol. The view won me over but the food did not at all. I went with the feta salad but quickly changed to the octopus salad upon a trip advisor review and was left hugely disappointed. There was a generous amount of octopus but it was swimming in olive oil... More

Absolutely yummy and fresh grilled squid with local wine was what I had for dinner at this lovely restaurant. We all had (3 people) the same dish and it was well prepared and truly great: so soft and succulent. Ahhh...Service was excellent and tentative. I recommend the restaurant for all who love fresh seafood.

First impresion was very nice, sitting half meter from the sea. We took shrimps with green pasta and spageti with sea food. Taste was ok. Tomato salad was without any dressing. There was no olive oil on the table. For me this is strange because Island Brac is very famous for olives and olive oil. Also they serve only white... More

Try the homemade bread, house red wine, mussels in tomato sauce (ragout?) And olives on the side. I also liked the octopus salad . the waiters did a good job as well.

Stopped here for lunch because the sheer number of people sat outside could not all be wrong. We had walked past a couple of times put off by the Germanic styling to the menu (wife is veggie and Germanic food tends to be meaty) and by the photos of food on the wall. Anyway, we both ordered Feta Cheese Salad... More
