I found it to be quite okay. Service was swift. The food was good enough. No surprise items on the bill.

This restaurant is like a yo-yo. Popular one year. Nobody in it the next. It has been like this for several years. Perhaps due to severall different proprietors trying to make it a success. It will always struggle with the Planet Yucca next door. I would suggest try it out for lunch. PLEASE NOTE. Always ask for the locals menu.... More

Order some Turkish Pide and a half portion of spag bol (child), were also given chips and salad which the waiter drenched in Pomegranate oil - awfully sweet rendering the unordered salad inedible in our opinion. We also orderd a large bottle of water and an apple juice. Great position to people watch, and the restaurant did feature one of... More

We didn't order a starter, but they gave us (not fresh) bread with garlic and chili. In all other restaurants in Kadadusi is this free. Not in Carpediem. Wenn we got the bill, we had to pay for this. Also, we had to pay 15 TL servicecosts! Orders from the big boss, the waiter told us. We never paid servicecosts... More

We eat here all the time and have found their food and service to be very good. The waiters are very friendly and helpful. We especially like their lunch menu, but their breakfast is VERY good as well.

I ordered the calamari here, and while it was ok, they tried to overcharge me from what was on the sign out front. Then they turned rude when I brought it to their attention.

Went for the gyro meat plate thing (photos of everything on the menu) and it was a perfect lunch. Light. Tasty. And the bread served with it was amazing. Like fresh pretzel bread with no salt. Decent price. Good portions. free wifi. Cute waiters! And people watching at the old bazaar. Would stop by again!

Thank Schluh
