Walked all the way down to visit our absolute favorite restaurant in Gumbet, Carpe Deim... Devastated to find it all but a memory... The place has been decimated and turned into something unrecognizable to the classy place we've loved over the years. What a shame. It's now an Italian set menu sub standard boring run of the mill scruffy restaurant.... More

Been this morning for ur breakfast to the Carpe Diem. Absolutely great value for money. Had full English breakfast which included bacon, sausage, 2 eggs, 2 toast, beans, Chips and cooked tomato and onion. Very well looked after and a bargain at 10 Turkish lira - equivalent to around £2.50. Would definitely recommend to all.

This was our 4th time in gumbet and our mouths were watering at the thoughts of going back for dinner. On arrival we were so disappointed. The place has changed to an Italian restaurant. The naam bread guy is gone and so is the front of house man (he's gone to cool breeze bar beside park ayiaz up on street).... More

Myself and my daughter visited Carpe Diem a couple of times whilst in Gumbet last year. The food was always lovely and freshly made. Very friendly staff. Will definitely return in July 😊

We initially stopped here for a light snack and drinks on our way back to our hotel from the shops. The restaurant has a great view over the water and a nice beach area. We were very impressed with the cocktails and food. We returned the following day for dinner and were equally impressed. It is a very clean restaurant... More

Had breakfast one morning. Couldn't fault it. Nice location on the beach. No hassle from staff. Very relaxing start to the day.

Thank Sharon D
