The food was really good, the staff could not have been nice and spoke excellent English. Pulse they have English menus a rare treat. The only thing that could be improved was the small portion. Altogether I really enjoyed this place and if I was Irkutsk again I would go back.

English speaking staff was really good, made us feel like home. Great restaurant if you want to go away from Russian traditional food and also try Italian food made in a different way. I asked if it was possible to make a risotto with the ingredients I wanted, and the chef did one of the best I've ever tried in... More

We went to Figaro looking for some western food after a week on Olkhon Island. We found the staff really friendly and helpful, with excellent English. The food was very good and service prompt. We found the prices quite reasonable compared to other restaurants, especially the pasta. Looking for some food to remind you of home while is russia -... More

The restaurant is in the center of Irkutsk and easy to reach. Prices are quite expensive, but worth your money. They have a small menu, but that what they serve is really good quality! My rib-eye was perfectly seasoned and just melted on my tongue. My girlfriend had the tuna which was also perfect. The staff speaks very good English.... More

Very well located in Karl Marx St, the restaurant offers a menu based on Italian cuisine with some original add-ons. The staff speaks English and is very friendly. Food was well presented and abundant (not so common in Russia). The screwdriver salad was a great discovery, I recommend it. Meat well cooked, but the pasta we ordered was a little... More

I spent a week in Irkutsk and I am very glad that I managed to find this restaurant although I wish I had found it earlier than I had! The food was delicious and very well presented and the chef kept providing complimentary samples for me to try. The staff were exceptionally friendly and spoke perfect English (giving me a... More

Nice atmosphere with a European hints in its decoration. I'd give them 5 starts if the last layer of pasta of my lasagna would have not been so difficult to cut. The waiting staff speak English and are very friendly. Centrally located on Karl Marx street.
