Toni Kostian is a Helsinki born. He graduated from Perho Culinary School in 2004. After graduation he has worked as chef de partie in restaurant Luomo (one Michelin star) and restaurant G.W. Sundman´s (Bib Gourmand) and as a head chef in restaurant Kaskis in Turku.
Chef Toni describes his cuisine as tasty, focused, plant-based and inspiring. He likes to concentrate on high quality ingredients and preparing them so that everything he does to them is to only get that ingredient better. Chef Toni even makes own preserves for his restaurant during the spring, summer and fall. He feels that is the only way to get interesting ingredients during cold winter months when nothing grows in Finland.
Toni became Finland´s Chef of the Year 2016, a perfect match with our Atli, Iceland´s Chef of the Year 2015 and Denis, Chef of the Year 2016. A team of champions!

FOOD & FUN 2017
The origins of the Food & Fun Festival can be traced back to the fact that the late winter months of February and March are off-season months in the Icelandic tourism industry. There was a severe decrease in seasonal tourism during this period and it was clear that something had to be done.
An idea was born to hold a competition between Icelandic and foreign culinary professionals, and thus with the support of Icelandair, the Icelandic Hotel and Gastronomy School and the City of Reykjavik, the first Festival was held in February 2002.
Chefs from the USA and Europe are invited to Iceland and team up with local restaurants to create gourmet menus at affordable prices, for the one-week competition. From the very beginning, foreign chefs have shown the project great interest and fewer have been able to participate than wanted. This has thus become an internationally renowned gastronomical festival that attracts chefs and guests from all over the world to Reykjavik to join up with the local restaurant scene and participate in a cooking event.
The festival has gained worldwide recognition and become an annual event, held in Reykjavík from 1st until 5th of March 2017.
Unfortunately, the online booking system is closed for this event. Tables can be booked by calling us on +354 525 9960.
Well, you sure can say that 2016 was indeed a very good and eventful year for us here in Grillið.
2016 started with our Atli participating in the Gala Dinner with the Icelandic Chefs Association. There he had his own course, being Chef of the Year 2015 and all. The story goes that Atli was on fire.
In February Denis entered the Chef of the Year competition. That went excellently well and Denis walked out a winner! By winning, Denis earned participation right for Nordic Chef of the Year that took place the following month in Denmark.
In May, Viktor Örn entered the preliminary round on Iceland’s behalf for the Bocuse d’Or which will was held in Budapest and came in fifth place, with a special award for the fish course. One of Grillið’s finest, Hinrik Örn is his first assistant for the competition and Siggi Helga, the executive chef of Hótel Saga, and a seasoned veteran in the world of Bocuse d’Or, is their head coach. Because of how terrific they were, they got the right to compete in the finals, that’ll take place in the end of January. We wish them the best of luck in the contest!
In October, Atli competed in the Culinary Olympics with the Icelandic Culinary Team. They performed like the heroes they all are.
In the very end of October, White Guide Nordic was published and we were honoured as the 2nd best restaurant in Iceland, and jumped from 9th place to 2nd in a year!
2016 was without a doubt a fantastic year for us here in Grillið and we look forward to a amazing 2017.
