Such a rustic cosy atmosphere, with a great bar you can belly up to. The cocktails are mixed so well, you could (hic!) drink them all night! Wonderfully prepared and presented food, served with a smile! We came here twice during our two week stay, see you in September!

We stumbled across Carpe Diem one dark and rainy night in Santa Teresa. It looked warm and friendly and was right on the main street. We were pleasantly surprised with how delicious the food was! The Argentinian empanadas were terrific. My tenderloin with chimmichurri was great, as was the fish (cooked in foil with lots of veggies) that my boyfriend... More

We heard good things about this new restaurant, so stopped in for dinner on our last night in Santa Teresa. The place has a very nice atmosphere, with lots of candles in bottles with overflowing wax, quirky art decorations and bright colors. The tables are nicely spread apart. It is very casual. Even though it is right on the main... More
