We only wanted something light after having a lunch with friends on our way from Angouleme, one of us has a pizza the other a salad, very nice meal, both excellent and just enough for a light meal. The service was excellent

To be honest, I've heard so much about this and the reality was that the food was regular. What was very bad was the service from the waiter!!

Once again the welcome, the location & the excellent service made our return visit to this lovely restaurant just perfect. The homemade Pizza are truly delicious, we had the carbonnara pizza & it was unctuous & tasty. The price does not reflect the quality as it is incredibly well priced.

Attempted to order lunch here today but found the staff hostile to our request to order 2 plain pizzas to be shared between 2 adults and 2 very small children and 4 minerals. We wisely decided to cancel our order and leave "tout suite" and enjoyed a simple lunch down the street.

I stumbled across Magenta when looking for somewhere to have a solo meal on my first night of a business trip to Poitiers. The outdoor seating on a quiet street was perfect, and the service was welcoming and friendly. My pizza and side salad were of high standard. The restaurant seemed to attract a mix of locals and tourists. Nice... More

Beer and wine all for around e30 , which is excellent value. Well worth a visit , but book a table or... More

We found this lovely restaurant by chance and its menu appealed to 2 hungry but fussy teenage girls. The service was excellent, my faltering attempt at French was recognised by madame who promptly informed us she was from Cornwall and looked after us all night. The spaghetti Bolognese the girls had was first class, tasty and rich in tomato. The... More

Magenta is in a great location, close to the main square, with a pleasant outdoor eating area as well as a great upstairs room (ask for "l'etage"). Their salads are huge and delicious. They also have pizza and incredible ice cream sundaes. You can also get standard French dishes such as duck and steak with potatoes. It's a great place... More
