“Rest is assured…”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

During one of my trips to Chisinau, I was looking for a place to taste “non-routine” Moldavian wines. I was not interested in a tour or sophisticated wine tasting in one of cellars; was looking for a place to taste wine, chat and meet nice people. Friends recommended finding Carpe Diem. It wasn’t even difficult to find it as it is located in the downtown of Chisinau, very close to Central Park. Once entered, I was very nicely treated and while chatting was served with a row of fair quality and well priced Moldavian wines. The only feeling while seating in that place is - find it, as the rest is assured

“Great place and exceptional wines!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Couldn't decide what to do for my birthday last year cause I always try to do something special. Choosing Carpe Diem Wine Shop & Bar was a great solution. The hosts organized everything so that I could really enjoy my birthday without taking care of anything and for a reasonable price too. Thank you again for the great evening.
