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.

After fleeing an overcrowded pizza restaurant across the street we were overjoyed by Figaro. The place looks brilliant, the staff was very friendly (and English speaking) and food was just magnificent. The best dining experience we’d had for a long time, a perfect way to finish a lovely day in Irkutsk and a fantastic final meal in Russia before heading... More

Had lunch at Figaro while stopping in Irkutsk during a trans-siberian tour. I found Irkutsk to be rather unpleasant and generally obnoxious, and as a guy whose happiness is highly related to good food and a full stomach this restaurant made it a whole lot nicer for me. Great food, incredibly kind and helpful waiter - cute, too - who,... More

I was only in Irkutsk for one night and I'm glad I found this restaurant. Everything was fantastic - the English (multilingual) speaking staff, the delicious food, the tasty wine, the modern interior design, and the upbeat lounge music. The chef's compliments food and drinks were nothing less than incredibly delicious. The staff was exceedingly courteous. It was my girlfriend's... More

It's been a great pleasure to find such a nice place while being in Irkutsk. - First thing that attracts your attention is unexpectedly attentive and professional staff. - Secondly, given that you find yourself in Siberia, the quality of food is above all of the expectations. - Thirdly place beautifully surrounds you with relaxing and quite atmosphere that completes...

We had our best meal in Irkutsk at Figaro. Well prepared Italian dishes. We had the cheese platter (very recommendable, one is more than enough for sharing), a greek salad and some pastas. Very delicious food. Pasta dishes were a bit cheese/cream heavy but good taste.
