I can see why this is one of the top 2 restaurants in the city. There is a more upscale side that will seat maybe 30-35 and a wine bar side a bit more raucous and bigger I believe. There appears to be a changing menu with some fixed items. Good wine selection but a limited beer selection. I had... read more

I went there for Chrismas lunch with my customers and that was a good choice. The buffet for the starters was filled with different kinds of fish and cold meat. Basically that would have been enough, but then came the main course and the dessert served to the table. The food was very good and I will go there for... More

Very tasty 3 course lunch and professional staff! Cozy decor, but nothing too fancy. Moderate price range too. This was my second time on Figaro and I must say that this restaurant has never let me down!

I visit Figaro now and then but not very often That is why my review may not be quite fair. I just have the feeling I liked "the old Figaro" better. Lunches are good but à la carte dishes have been slightly disappointing. I enjoy innovative food but it has to be delicious. During the last visits I and the... More

We were eating business dinner as a group of 10 people. Restaurant was empty in a Thursday evening. Service was nice, not over pleasant but straight forwarded. Atmosphere is simple and cosy inside the old building. Menu was simple and basic but offered all necessary options to cover all tastes. Starters were nice but little bit too small. I took... More

What a disappointment. I waited for more. Food did not taste anything special, my colleague's food was over salted. ..

Delicious food -- the reindeer was fantastic! My starter (crayfish) was also good, but the portion was so tiny it felt more like an appetizer (the risotto looked to be a more reasonable size). Even the main course was smallish, I thought, and I am not a big eater. This place is definitely to be recommended, but if you're hungry... More

Had a dinner at Figaro fine dining. Very good food and wine pairing. Service was ok, maybe too relaxed. Would go again, best food in Jyväskylä to my exprience.

We were a group of ten people on a quiet Wednesday evening. We did not have a reservation, but the staff easily accommodated us. The food was delicious, but the menu had a very limited selection. Those who chose the halibut found it to be a rather small portion. The wine selection also is limited and relatively pricey. All told,... More
