The area
Neighbourhood: Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.

Great Birthday Dinner with Friends at Carpe Diem
Aug 2021 • Couples
Spent a lovely evening with friends at Carpe Diem for my husband’s birthday. We got complimentary champagne upon our arrival and even got massages.

The food and service were great and they have an upbeat vibe with a live dj and hookah available for order.

Review of Carpe Diem
Reviewed 3 days ago via mobile
Unbelievably rude service without provocation. I am really sad and disappointed after a bad experience at this restaurant. Today I was denied entry to the restaurant despite arriving for my reservation at the allocated time. The reason given was lack of an appropriate dress code (shirts). I was wearing casual (not sports) clothes. Coincidentally it was exactly the same clothes I was wearing a night before at the same restaurant. When I explained this to the rude security guard he sarcastically shouted “congratulations” but “today is different from yesterday.” “Bye Bye” he gloriously celebrated. I made my way to other entrance where I can view my allocated table and the other guests at the restaurant. Not surprisingly given this was a beach restaurant at Barcelona almost all the guests inside the restaurant were like me in shorts. By the door there was a member of staff called “Dani” I think who I pleaded with to show humanity and treat a visiting tourist customer with respect. He admitted there are other guests in shorts and that dress code was not a valid justification to deny me entry but that there was nothing he could do. “I am sorry please speak to someone else” he helplessly explained. I told him I will walk and speak to a manager. At this point the security guy got aggressive and physically pushed me out of the way. I find this surreal that I could be physically assaulted in a service establishment in a country relying on tourism. I started the day wondering how I have never been to Barcelona and ended it wondering if I will ever come again. I seriously considered reporting the assault to the police. However I decided that a review as a customer would be a more persuasive force to change. All I hope is that this restaurant would not treat another customer this way. A restaurant operating as part of a civilized society can apologize to a customer for the unavailability of a previously booked table. I am still in disbelief on the gang like attitude to deal with me as a customer. What I would like to understand is whether this is a policy promoted by the management or something they like me they are embarrassed about. Let’s not forget so quickly that we have had almost two years of low business activity due to covid and that lots of jobs and lives are dependent on tourist activity picking up. I paid for a taxi to come to this restaurant at the booked time. I paid for a taxi to return home hungry. I had to sleep hungry because all the restaurants and shops around me were shut by the time I got home. I sincerely hope management reach out to me to explain this behavior as currently I feel I have been subjected to racial discrimination. I would like to remind you that we are all human beings. Like I explained to Dani I would not accept a similar treatment to him if he was a guest in my country. As a host you a responsible for the care of your guests. Carpe Diem , “Eat the moment?” I really wanted to but you have let your name down. Reservation was under the name of Matar Saturday night.

Excellent service and try the sea bass
Jul 2020 • Couples
My last night in Barcelona was rewarded with four of us ( three of us family) enjoying a night at this classy restaurant and club.
The interior is first class and so was my meal. I had the sea bass in a coconut cream with asparagus and broccoli. Steamed rice came with it too, including Japanese herbs with the rice. The starter was the best spring rolls I've ever had. For drinks u had refreshing Sol followed by a Desperado.
My partner had a Moroccan, which was a lamb tagine. Having been to the said country more than once, this meal was a slight let down. If we return, I'm sure we'll go for something else due to the extensive and impressive menu. The young ladies enjoyed a starter platter and the steak. The steak was cooked slightly more than the medium rare that was ordered, nevertheless, very tender and slightly succulent.
Three of the group enjoyed a good white wine at 32 euros and one had an excellent cocktail- Nirvana!
We enjoyed photos in the interior following our meal and may have stayed longer if it wasn't so quiet.
Five stars due to the sea bass, steak, service and ambience.
225 euros for a once in a blue moon treat 👍

Fun place to hang out. Great food
Mar 2020 • Friends
The food and the service are very good. Kids are allowed in the day but not in the evenings. I love the separate party area upstairs which can be booked for private parties. The DJ plays retro till about 9 & Bollywood after. There’s shisha so if you don’t like the smoke, that could be a bit of a drawback. For regular cigarette smokers, there’s a separate smoking room. Being quite large, there are several seating options which is pretty cool

Great Spot to Gather
May 2019
I have been here three times. I enjoyed being here most in a small group. I bought a group of 40 here, and I enjoyed it less. I prefer the outdoor seating. They have comfortable bed-style seats on the patio, overlooking the beach. The food is just so-so. After dinner this becomes a fun spot with a DJ.

Wonderful Find
Jan 2020
We were in Barcelona for a few days and was wandering along Barcelona Beach when we came across Carpe Diem at lunchtime, it was the day beds that enticed us in. We got a bed in the sun overlooking the beach and were welcomed by lovely staff. We had a drink and then decided to have some lunch which was amazing (recommend the club sandwich and the chicken wrap!!), we stayed for a second drinks and after seeing the inside of the place on a trip to the bathroom we were amazed and decided to book an inside day bed for dinner that evening. Again in the evening the staff were welcoming and attentive and the food (curry) was delicious as were the cocktails. Would recommend to anyone in the area.
