Best place

Best restaurant in Gumbet! The staff is always welcoming you, they comes by and talk to you, its not a problem eating there alone. Excellent food, lovely staff who make the best drinks!! Fabolous! The beach area is so nice with hammocks to relax in and you just order anything you want.

Even though the place was dead when we arrived, this has been the best place my family and I have visited so far. The waiters were so lovely and responsive, making sure we always had drinks and food. The cocktails were stronger than usual ones, but I'm not complaining! Fresh pitta came out in the form of a wonderful puffy... More

Carpe Diem is the best beach place to eat and drink on the beach in Gumbet. We came here nearly every day on our 2 week holiday. The staff are so friendly and polite and always go out their way to offer excellent service. The milkshakes and ice slush are by far the best drinks. They also offer beach service... More

We ate our dinner on the beach as the sun was setting. I was surprised how quiet the restaurants were considering it is the summer holidays however this did not take away the fact that our meal was delicious. Definitely worth a visit.

My boyfriend and I spent 10 days in Gumbet and visited Carpe Diem on a number of occasions both in the day and the night. Every meal we ate tasted incredible and the staff were very friendly. They serve you drinks and food on the beach during the day and in the evening the view is just a bonus. Would... More
