Amazing start to the say

We stopped off here for breakfast a few times during our holiday and always enjoyed good service. The English breakfast is a real plateful and all good quality ingredients... the grilled onion a nice touch. However the better option is the Turkish breakfast which is a meze of cheese, fruit... read more

We visited this beach front restaurant most days as the breakfasts were great cooked well. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed chatting to them. We tended to use their sunbeds/hammocks throughout the day where the lads on the beach were really quick to see you needed a drink & go get your order. We had lunch a few times... More

We tried a number of places along the beach and this was one of the best. The service was good, the prices were reasonable and we visited a few times over our holiday. I was worth the wander further down the beach to find it, defiantly a must.

We spent every day on the sunbeds in front of Carpe Diem and had lots of lunches during our stay. The beach staff supplying drinks were all very pleasant and helpful - a real bonus that there is no charge for use of sunbeds.

Great food, great service, great location! Lovely restaurant right on the beach. They have their own sunbeds on the beach too and they bring your drinks to you on the beach 👍🏻

We ate breakfast here one day and lunch 7 days. The restaurant has a very nice chilled atmosphere, good food, great service, free wifi, it's clean and no hassle. You get to use the sun beds and hammocks for free (as long as you order a drink or something else). If we ever go back to Gumbet, this is for... More
