“Ptown Institution That Is Very Dog-Friendly”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

There are only a few restaurants that allow dogs which surprised me for such a dog-friendly town. Bubala's is one of them. It was fun to sit outside and dine with the dog's there. A lot of people stopped by to meet the dogs. The drinks were tasty and food very good. It is not cheap for what you get, but the food all stands up well

“Good food but can be pricey”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We went to Bubula's in first week of September. This is our third time eating here. We ordered clam chowder which was ok. We also orderd fish and chips and lobster roll. The fish was very good, fresh catch so that was defintely a plus. The lobster roll was drenched in butter that seeped right through the bread and was very messy. The service was good and our server was very pleasant. I thought the food was a bit pricey. I am not sure if we would come back here. There seems to be a discrepancy in price when we charge w/ a credit card.This happened twice already to us. Receipt says one thing but when we get the credit card bill it seems that there was additional charges to the bill.

“Very good. Great outdoor seating.”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Recently went to Bubala's for lunch with 3 other adults and a 3 yr old. Food was delicious. We all ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their meals. Margaritas were tasty too. Would definitely recommend and would return. Also the service was very good.

“Great people watching, food ok”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Had lunch at Bubala's on our late September visit. The air was chilly but there were alot of outside heaters which made the air perfect! The people watching was great, Service good and friendly. Both had fish tacos which were very very messy and just okay. I would go again but I would order something different. They had a large menu with a great array of dishes.

“Nice atmosphere - good view and great food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

There are many restaurants in Provincetown. It’s not easy to chose. We tried our luck in here and were very happy; there are many options; - you can eat and drink inside or outside, looking at the sea or at the people in this busy little town, and there is always something catching your attention. We were sitting inside, got great food and a nice glass of vine, combined with the perfect service this made a great evening for my companion and myself. Great selection of vine and food.
