“A stroke of genius”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Konstantin is, simply put, a culinary genius. There was not one small wrong thing at his place when i visited. The flavors were tuned like the best orchestral performance ever of your favorite composition. It was no doubt one of my top 5 food experiences ever in my life. (I am italian, a food lover, and been at a few extremely highly rated restaurants). Service and staff were professional, helpful , but nice, relaxed and friendly, never intrusive. Interiors are elegant, modern but simple and not showing off. Very pleasant.
The food was simply sublime and unforgettable. Price extremely fair for the quality. Bravo Konstantin, you'll be (or you are already ?) one of the famous new creative cooks in Europe, I bet on that.
If you are a food lover and travel to Vienna you don't want to miss this, it 'll give you a boost of happiness.

“It was a nice meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

If you want to taste some good food at reasonable price then this place is a must visit. Being here for the very first time, I could not rate it but definitely will recommend it to all foodies. Menu has a lot of options to choose from. Food served hot and presented beautifully. They offer some nice selection of wines that too at affordable price. Service too was quick and the staff very friendly. So for a hearty meal, do visit this place like I did. It was just Wow!!

“Creative Delicious Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

I had a short stop over in Vienna and was lucky enough to find a table at Mr. Filipou's restaurant. My reservation was confirmed on the day of by a very polite reservations agent (very classy) When we arrived we were escorted to our table by a charming hostess who informed us about the degustation menus which were also available with wine pairing; this is what we chose. From the amuse bouche to the dessert, each dish was better than the next and the sommelier was one of the best I have ever come across. Filipou's kitchen and service is seamless with a wonderful atmosphere which wants you to book for the following day, unfortunately I had to take a plane early in the morning. A must go when in Austria, Bravo!

“Innovative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Modern, innovative cuisine. You don't have a lot of options, just the choice of two different degustation menus for dinner, but not everyone on the table had to have the same one. The dishes were excellent, with great presentation and excellent flavours. We had wines with each dish as recommended by the sommelier. They were varied, well matched, came in great glassware (like all Vienna) and were explained well. Service in general was excellent. Highly recommended.

“Fine dining tucked away on a quiet street in Vienna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Not far from the bustle of St. Stephen's church in Vienna you will find a quiet, sophisticated room in which fine and innovative use of local ingredients makes for an engaging evening's dinner. We found this one of the best restaurants in our recent visit to Austria (along with Esszimmer in Salzburg). We really enjoy seeing what good chefs are doing all over the world, and Konstantin Filippou can go head to head with the best. We enjoyed it and thought it was time and money well spent.
