We visited this place based on the reviews. The food was good. The joint is a good place to hangout with friends. The restaurant has wood fired pizza which was better than the rest of our meal. The indian selection is very average and best to be avoided.

After reading the reviews we went to Carpe Diem expecting excellent food and ambience. We got the ambience but the rest we pretty dreadful and we're not quite sure where this 'Italian' chef trained.....Mumbai?

First, it arrived after less than 5 minutes from ordering....hardly freshly cooked. OH's spaghetti with eggplant and olives was sloppy and the only saving grace was that there were lots of olives.

My tuna lasagne was also sloppy and luke warm. Having realised it was not freshly cooked and that it was luke warm I should have sent it back but I ate it. BIG mistake. It may be coincence but I spent the next 36hrs in bed, sleeping, aching and making regular visits to the bathroom. Looking on the brightside, some people pay lots of money for an Ayurvedic treatment!

I should have scored it ONE but gave it TWO because of the chilled atmosphere and the friendly staff.

Lovely little cafe/restaurant with a fantastic atmosphere. The tables are low and you sit on the floor on cushions, which makes the whole experience seem quite relaxed and authentic. We loved carpe diem so much that we had at least 3 meals there (and we only spent 3 days in McLeod Ganj.

There is a large array of food to choose from, including different cuisines, however we mainly ate the curries as they were fantastic.

One evening, some guy cracked out a guitar and we had an old-school-singalong. One of my best nights of my whole trip to India.

A must-visit !

Well, well, Your trip to Mcgloedganj is incomplete without visiting the very pink Carpe Diem. Located just near the Post Office on Jogiwara Road, it is a two level restaurant with upper level overlooking the mountains and beautiful seating by the floor.

We spent at entire evening there and the experience was awesome. You'll meet people from different nationalities and the food is awesome.

You should definitely try their pizza - its freshly baked and mouth watering. The ABCG juice is equally healthy and very good.

The Hot and Sour soup is one of the best soups I ve had in many places. Its fresh, dense with vegetables and yummy.

The Spicy chips (Read Chilly potatoes) are also extremely good - slightly oriental in taste, you should definitely try them if you are fond of spicy stuff.

Their Tukka is also very good.

There is a live band playing in late evening which makes your evening worthwhile.

All in all, a must visit place in Mcgloedganj!
