Best steak in town

Figaro Pepper Steak is the best mest that Jyvaskyla has to offer. There have been one or two all time favourites before, but since Figaro opened doors, all the others were beaten. Steak is not even top in price, but it is top at flavour and size.

I'm local and this is one of my favorites. Definitely the choice for quality dinner whether it's romantic or with friends. Their wine selection is excellent. The food has always been delicious and sometimes it's really amazing...like their lamb last weekend. Prices are not high at all considering the quality.

I visited Figaro after Lonely Planets recommendation. I think that's why it also was a disappointment. I ate soup made of fennel as a starter and it was really good. But steak was just steak, nothing special. My friend ate salmon and liked it but said it wasn't special. Desserts were good and service just ok. I didn't find this... More

Very very good steak. The food served alongside with the steak was also very tasty. The restaurant was well above a normal steak house.

This Winebistro has been chosen as the winebistro of the year. For many good reasons! The range of wines is quite large and you can find there many curiocities, for example splendid red wine from Slovenia! Their speciality is tapas, but you can find there also very tasty different kind of portions and waiters are able to recommend suitable wines... More

I have visited Figaro on and off monthly for two years now and the service is getting worse but the food is getting better and better. If you want good service leave it but if you can take it then go for the food - price is quite high for Jyvaskyla...

I have been invited to this resto several times and have been disappointed each time. Despite exotic and seemingly innovative menu items, I have found nothing outstanding and often the dishes disappointed their description in both presentation and taste. Inattentive service.

I went with some girl friends. It's a place to enjoy nice food and drinks while chatting. A bit pricy but ok.

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.
