Had a nice meal here recently. Food portions were a good size and well prepared and cooked. Kids menu had a variety of options and staff were friendly and attentive. Meal for 6 with alcohol came in at just over 100 euros so fair value

Ordered the Stroganoff but received beef in tomato sauce, when I asked the waitress she said it was Stroganoff, obviously never seen a Stroganoff in there Life. The potatoes were cooked in old oil and not very good. Won't be going again.

Here, at Carpe Diem the warm atmosphere makes every person feel like being at home and our staff make sure that you are not alone.

Our name ‘Carpe Diem’ comes from the book 1 of the Roman poet Horace’s work, witten more than 2000 years ago. The word itself means to ‘Seize the Day’ and to enjoy every moment of it!

The whole verse is: “Carpe diem quam minimum credula posterior”, which can be translated as “Seize the present; trust tomorrow e’en as little as you may.” Therefore, it is important not to let a single day pass without enjoying. And if this is something good, then it happens with us.

It is possible to say that Horace predicted 20 centuries ahead because even in the 21st century Carpe Diem is still completely up to date and is used frequently.

Every person would love to unwind and forget everything about everyday worries. For us, Carpe Diem is to be more than just an appealing name, it is also immediately our motto and philosophy. We would like you to enjoy everyday you spend!
