We did like the food, although I think the Portionen are way too big! The restaurant interior is great and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were there as a family with two kids 9 & 5 years of age. As we were...waiting for the food we were playing a very small, very quiet card-game with the kids and we were asked TO STOP PLAYING. It was NOT ACCORDING TO RESTAURANT POLICY?????I am sorry, but what kind of policy is that? Might I say, we did not play on the thousand phones that were around all adult people, the kids did not play on a computer, they were totally quiet and did not use any technical devices…. A simple game with pen & paper or cards cannot be played…. 🤔 I don‘t like that kind of policy…More

Classy yet casual! Excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We were a group of 7 for dinner and ordered a variety of starters and for main dishes fish, steak and their famous beef cheeks! Everything was excellent…well presented and prepared…the service was very efficient and...attentive throughout. There is also a formidable dessert list (pavlova recommended!), and an extensive wine selection. Prices are on the high side but justified by the quality, portion size and general presentation. Always book in advance as this is a very popular restaurant.More

After trying the white lava cake, about a month ago, I was not impressed. However after tasting it again recently, I have noticed a huge difference on quality and flavour, and is now my go to dessert when visiting Artima.

We have been visiting Cyprus for years now and Artima is always on the list of must visit restaurants. The food, service and surroundings are always lovely. On our most recent visit (September 2021) we sat outside and were served by Jadwiga, the service was...fantastic! The food, really really great! A top Italian restaurant for a reasonable price (compared to the UK). Some may say the prices are high for Cyprus but the quality of food is unmatched and the portions are huge! The chocolate soufflé dessert was to die for! No doubt on my next visit to Cyprus we will be back!More

A trip to Limassol Old Town on Monday, which has clearly suffered through the pandemic, but we went a few times during our holiday and it does get very busy in the evening. Dinner was at Artima Bistro, which is clearly shooting for high end...dining and has prices to match. The welcome is pleasant and we sat outside which filled up nicely during our visit; inside remained pretty empty though. The menus are printed, which was certainly a great start. Everywhere else we went they were accessed via a QR code. This is an Italian restaurant and we opted for starters of: Seared foie gras and King prawns with asparagus. Mains were the Lobster tagliatelle and an Angus rib-eye. You also get plenty of little extras like a good selection of breads and an amuse-bouche of Tomato Gazpacho. Quite lovely. The starters were great, my wife's King prawns were quite delicious and served in a rich garlic butter sauce. My Foie gras was nice but a little less successful than the prawns. The big disappointment was my Rib eye which was anaemic looking and lacking in any real taste. It was pretty rare as I'd requested but it was poorly executed and I doubt they cooked it in butter. It had no gloss to it, really unappetising and tasteless. Not helped by warmed up raw veg, I would not describe these as al dente because these really were very raw. The mash too was lacking flavour and the Béarnaise sauce was served cold. I prefer it warm or hot but, It at least had flavour. Luckily my wife's Lobster tagliatelle was excellent and certainly looked the part on the plate and tasted fab. Overall then it was a meal of mixed experiences but we enjoyed the location, beside the castle, friendly service and the restaurants atmosphere. For this two course à la carte, Prosecco, wine and coffee, we paid £123 or £62 a head. I'd come back but I'd order something other than a steak. It's a shame but my wife had a really good meal, so not all bad.More

Amazing restaurant with wonderful staff. Stayed in Cyprus for 2 weeks and visited this restaurant twice as we where so impressed. Massive shoutout to Jadwiga who was our lovely waitress and helped massively when my daughter accidentally spilt my sons drink. She moved us to...another table and took the drink off the bill without hesitation. She is so polite and helpful. Lovely food and reasonably priced.
