His cuisine is puristic, straightforward, based on Austrian products and characterized by an unbridled passion for ingredients. Always aiming for the essence of taste. A cooking that reflects his multicultural background and allows for a unique approach to food from both of my worlds. That can be seen in my dishes. Konstantin adds “It’s a very important thing for me, represents my own style and is my personal business card. My cooking is never only about the food. It’s about colours, design of the dishes and plates. We try to surprise our guests, even when they have the feeling they already see everything. But then, there is so much more behind. My clear view of things is reflected in all of my dishes.” In June 2015, Konstantin’s story continues with the opening of the Natural Wine Bistro O boufés, located at the same address in Dominikanerbastei 17 in Vienna’s first district and in September of the same year, Konstantin Filippou was awarded “Gault Millau Chef of the Year 2016”. Only 4 months after the opening the Bistro O boufés, he received 2 bonnets (15 points) in the Gault Millau and a BiB Gourmand in the March 2016 Guide Michelin. GELINAZ!

In October 2016, Konstantin Filippou self-published his first cookbook “Konstantin Filippou” in German and English. WG September 2017 -
