“Great value for money:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

First of all, we were family of four and our younger son fell asleep before entering the restaurant after such a long day. But, it was not a problem, we had a nice table with a sofa and waiter brought a blanket to our son who slept most of the time and we had a wonderful dinner:)

Magnuna has a short menu, but once a again, it is a positive sign. First course, chicken snack was absolutely beautiful and simple dish with lots of coriander and eastern flavors. Another starter, crispy spinach was nice as well. My husband took Chilli lamb as a main course and loved it. I had Taboola Duck, which was fantastic (huge amount of food by the way)!

To conclude: nice atmosphere, excellent service, good food - that is to say, great value for money! I hope people will find the place and enjoy the food:)

“Such a nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

A beautiful, quiet, small restaurant a short walk away from tourist area. Excellent young man with a sense of humour as a waiter, reasonable prices and really good food. Nice terrace in the summer too, not much traffic there. I will go again.

“Exceptional food and amazing service - what a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This place is a little off the beaten track but WOW, well worth the effort of finding it. We stumbled upon it and walked in, were given a really friendly welcome - the place is small with only 5-6 tables so has a very cozy atmosphere. I had a lamb dish which was extraordinary - my friends dishs were equally delicious and good sized portions - serviced with rice and salad. Thoroughly enjoyed my meal and would recommend highly to anyone visiting Tallinn.

“Off the beaten track - but worth finding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you want some of the best tasting middle eastern home cooking, you wouldn't think to go to Tallinn to find it! But if you like Middle Eastern cuisine, and you come across Magnuna, you'll want to keep coming back!

Service is exceptional. The menu has a good choice. But what you can't beat is the traditional home-cooked meals. You sit in the great little restaurant and look into the open kitchen as you watch the chefs preparing the meal.

Full of flavours created from the best spices, you feel like you're in a souk in Jordan, rather than in the Old Town of Tallinn!

Great little restaurant - well worth going back to. We can't wait to return!

“Thoroughly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Fantastic little restaurant serving nice middle eastern food in the middle of icy tallinn in the winter makes for a surreal but really positive experience Ambience great, service very hospitable which in this city can be unusual. The food was v tasty and made a real change from a relatively bland local ( good) cuisine.prices reasonable. Don't miss this.
