Good food and service

We had a very good lunch, delicious chicken with French fries, green pasta with vegetables and delicious salad. Will probably eat there again.

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

We had an early dinner today at Pumparela. We ordered meat dishes: cevapcici and grilled veal. The food was delicious. We asked to change french potatoes to salad. So the meal was perfect. Our waiter was very polite and attentive. The only minus is that all tables are on the street which is not very comfortable in chilly weather.

Nice simple good quality food, meat dishes are the best, best Cevapcici in Bol for certain. You're in a beautiful setting which is nice, if you don't mind people walking past your table on the Riva. Very attentive and helpful staff, a great place for a quick lunch before the beach.

Fairly average tourist food. Waiter was surly and clearly not having a good day at work. Was always full when we passed by but we didn't return a second time.

We were walking up and down the promenade looking for somewhere to eat and this place caught our eye, situated right on the harbour with a nice view it was the perfect location.

If you plan to sit for a coffee & wine here you might get dissapointed. Waiter tried to move us from one table to another before we even finished our drinks. Brought us bill before we finished enjoying our wine to get rid of us faster due to the desire to have more customers.. However, coffee was good.

Enjoyed a really nice meal here, had to queue as it gets busy but was worth the 10 minute wait. Had a table right by the water, all steaks are served on a hot stone which is a nice touch. Good service.
