The food here was more than excellent although there menu is short and don't know why they are rated among the best 5 restaurants in whole Finland according to Lonely Planet, but certainly a place to go when you arein Jyvaskyla. The lobster sandwich I had was a one to remember. The wine not outstanding though.

Loved our dinner out. As always the children are well catered for at Finnish restaurants. They always have toys to keep them entertained. Top salmon. Very nice interiors too. It's necessary to book in advance, a favourite by the locals!

Very cood food and nice atmosphere. love their Rye-flavoured Esgarcots Au Gratin. As main course i had Fried Whitefish; fennel beurre blanc, pan-fried gnocches and dill pesto and as dessert: Pistachio Cake and honey-yogurt ice cream Mascarpone and pistachio mousse. All very good and fresh. This is my place to take my guests and eat well. Winebar is also nice.

We visited Figaro Winebistro (next to the actual Figaro restaurant). They serve tapas, some main courses and few desserts. Wine list is quite short but all wines are available per glass also. We also noticed that wine list from actual restaurant is available. Bone marrow tapas can be highly recommended, also their ice cream dessert is absolutely perfect - it... More

While in Jyväskylä for business we have enjoyed lunch at Figaro's. The lunch menu offered was reasonably priced. One can tell it is all freshly prepared with good quality products. Quick service and parking just opposite the front door. Excellent for lunch.

We had a business trip to Jyväskylä and our colleague found this restaurant in TripAdvisor and made a booking. I'm so happy that we visited this restaurant instead of Sokos hotels own restaurant.

Snails were nice, Figaro's beef was awesome and lobster is one of the best meals I've ever eaten! The restaurant is at a great spot! Very nice place! Everyone should give this restaurant a change if you visit Jyväskylä. Notice!! If you are going to have a lobster, you will have to order it at least 12 hours earlier!!
