Review of Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem

I have worked in Tonga for the last 20 months and thanks to Carpe Diem have been able to eat similar to what I eat in Oz. And they will cook something you like if it is available in Tonga. The fish chips and salad is by far the best in Tonga with fresh Mahi Mahi

The service here has really improved since it opened. It used to be hard to get a good burger on Tongatapu unless you were at Billfish. All the burgers here are good and the homemade pickles are fantastic. Good place to go for tourists.

I have eaten here a few times and every time has been great food. Last visit I had the vegetarian burrito which was delicious. With the restaurant served wine - that would add to the experience.

We were told about Carpe Diem last year, but hadn't had a chance to visit it until a quick business trip to Tonga a week ago. Yes, it is situated off the main road, but it is fabulous! Really large choice of dishes, including an amazing selection of the most delicious burgers - all with home-made meat patties and bread rolls. Great coffee. Next time I will ask for "no fries" with my order - they are SO good you just can't help but eat them - such a great lunch, we called in for breakfast the next morning (which was just as good!). The service from the lovely Rachael was fantastic! Can't wait to come back!

Wow, we stopped here for lunch and did not need dinner. The burgers were delicious, the burritos were delicious, the chips were delicious, the shakes and iced drinks were delicious. The service was great and special requests were no problem. Comfortable seating. Highly recommended.
