This was our first dinner in Aruba and we loved it. From the beautiful and unique decor, to watching the sunset over the ocean, to the amazing food....definitely recommend this place.

Like every nice place in Aruba, it's pricey but not out of the ordinary.

Not bad but need to tighten up the wait staff. Food was very good but a little more training for the 12 y/o that waited on us would have made the experience even better. A little pricey, and some street noise but overall good recommendation

We had dinner at Carpe Diem with 6 ladies. The ambiance, decor and seating is great, no doubt about it. The food is very pricy, but the grouper was big, with a great taste and the side orders tasted very good as well (although it was a bit cold because it stood next to our table for a while before the brought the rest of the meals).
The bad thing about this place are the waiters and service. The sort of service where they come to your table to take your orders, but forget to ask everybody... Twice! And the sort of service where they don't come to your table to ask if everything is okay and you have to walk to the bar to ask if someone can come your table for another order while you already waited and signed for half an hour... Too bad for a place like this! You pay a lot for the food and there's enough staff to handle all the guests. Hopefully they will teach the staff some serviceness, because it has potential!

This is probably one of the most unusual interiors of a restaurant I have ever seen. It is beautiful with unusual furniture, lighting and even swings. It is located right on the harbor with open air seating. We were there for lunch and no cruise ships were in town, so we were literally the only people there. Our service was good and the lunch was lovely. Our only complaint was apparently they had run out of bloody mary mix, but we found the island to be out of a lot of stuff everywhere. It is worth stopping by to take a look.

If I could rate this place with zeros I would. The service is non existent. A shame because the decor and location is great. The menu was dog eared and had little choice except lobster. Poor!
