    My friend and I ate her last week on the first night of our holiday. It was fairly late at 21:45 but no problem from the staff and plenty of other diners inside. The decor is very pleasant and the staff were friendly and attentive in the main.

    We both ordered the Asparagus chicken in honey. Whilst awaiting the main dish we were brought 2 bread rolls and a selection of 3 dips, one being oil and vinegar, one eggplant and one cheese and ? They were all at room temp as oppose to chilled which should have rung some alarm bells but I tucked in whilst my fellow diner declined and just ate the roll. I did polish off the cheese and eggplant dips with my bread..........neither of which tasted of anything and just warm & bland we then awaited our main..........

    It arrived very quickly and loved the way it was presented on the huge red sectioned plates, good selection of veg and the chicken in sauce. We both enjoyed it, although I found the sauce a little sweet to my taste and I left most of the vegetables and potatoes but ate almost all my chicken, my friend polished her whole plate off and thoroughly enjoyed. We drank our only drink of the evening and paid the bill, not unreasonable but not the cheapest either.

    We then drove home to our villa and retired for the night. In the early morning I suffered terrible stomach pains & ended up with severe diarrhea and projectile vomiting on several occasions through the morning. I was in a serious way and it was serious food poisoning, thankfully my friend is a trained RGN and knew what needed to be done to ensure all precautions were taken. I was terribly ill for 2 whole days, suffering fever, sweats and being unable to retain any food. We analysed our food intake that day and I'm afraid to say the meal at La Cultura Del Gusto is absolutely the only possible place on the contamination. Whether it was the dips or despite us eating the same my chicken could have been the source and we both suspect the strain was salmonella and campylobacter due to the symptoms.

    So, hopefully it was an unfortunate one off but totally unacceptable and we certainly won't be trying La Cultura Del Gusto ever again I'm afraid.

    Food is first class and very efficient staff

    My family, friends and I have visited this restaurant every year for the past 10 years when we travel from the UK annually, and have always had fantastic service and excellent food. I would say probably our favourite in the Protaras Region, with freshly prepared ingredients before your eyes. You will not be dissapointed, a superb Italian restaurtant... Always best to book during peak season as rarely an empty table in the restaurant!

    Prices are relativly modest, especially given the quality.

    For us it's easily the finest Italian restaurants in Protaras.
    I would like to apose Mr.Alexis Demetrious rewiew and his comments, since I was dinning myself there that night and was unfortunatelly paying attention to the conversations while sitting with friends at a near table ! (The time the table waited for your main dish was not 30 but about 15 minutes, while the waiter I think was attecked by the lady sitting, rather than he attacking them, plus I think was fed-up with them commenting on how they do things in France. He was not rude at all he just told them that it was busy.)
    My family and I are frequent visitors to the area from Limassol, and have eaten alot in Protaras. La Cultura del Gusto is one of the dest restaurants in the area, with a great atmosphere, exellent food and service.

    I went to La Cultura Del Gusto as a guest the first time and enjoyed the food. BUT when i went for a second time, taking friends, I was horrobly surprised when after waiting for 30 minutes from 1st plate to 2nd my wife complained only to be verbally attacked by the waiter who also claimed to be the chef's co-owner.
    The only thing he did not do was physically throw us out although he said he would. When asked to calm down and discuss the manner in a more civilised and not Baboon manner he wanted nothing to do with us!!! So we paid and left...
    A real petty for the Chef that does his best both visually and tastefully!
    A great shame for the VERY HOT TEMPERED co-owner
