Best BBQ, must try if you’re in Athens
Food was unique and amazing. Soft meat, juicy ribs, flavorful nice touches throughout the starters and main courses. Design of the place and every little detail was very well taken care of, you could see the attention the owner gave to it. Thoroughly recommend it!
Super nice location. Great food!
We have stay in Athens 12 days and this was the best restaurant where we have eat!
Πολύ όμορφος χώρος, που έλειπε από το κέντρο της Αθήνας. Ένα πραγματικό smokehouse, με εξαιρετικό brisket, αντάξιο Αμερικάνικου Νότου. Πεντανόστιμες, τραγανές πατάτες, πολύ ωραίο mac n cheese και γκουρμε, νόστιμοι πουρέδες συνοδεύουν το κρέας. Εξαιρετικά κοκτέηλ και ευγενέστατο service! Αξίζει!
The best place we ate in Athens. The softest meat cooked to great taste, and the most amazing and surprising appetizers to share.
Superb food and fine ambience. Friendly people and good drinks.
Utterly incredible experience, fantastic food, fantastic service and just generally incredible evening. O have eaten in some of the best bbq restaurants in texas and this was up there with them
Modern, cool vibes with interesting light-pieces hanging from the ceilings. ALL service was outstanding, friendly, knowledgable and personal. They asked us, honestly, whether we liked it or if we have recommendations. The food was outstanding, it really is one of a kind. The cocktails were out of this world! Simple, yet made with so much love and diligence (you could see the barman, who was making the drinks like he was creating art). Very very recommended. Especially for meat-lovers.
Very attentive and helpful service. Paid attention to special requirements we had due to allergies to specific ingredients. Willing to explain and check if we were happy with food drinks and service. Sufficient cocktail list with variety of base drink.
I had the best smoked meat in my life, it was very soft and delicious.
Good BBQ surprisingly in Athens. Come ready to eat portions are quite large! Good cocktails also
A must-have restaurant for meat lovers and especially smoked meats. High quality food and excellent service. Must visit when you come to Athens
The food is pretty amazing and the service very friendly but extremely professional
Delicious food not to be missed. Definately we will come back.
Great service and delicious food. Would definitely recommend to anyone. We had a great experience.
If you have time to go – GO!!!
We are from TX and my husband was very worried about trying this out. But we LOVED it. The food was unique and delicious. And they had a great take on a very delicious style of food. We went as a group, but it would make a great date night. We did the ribs and the brisket. The brisket definitely exceeded my expectations. It is better than some bbq places in the US. The ribs were delicious (but the brisket was better). We also did the shrimp pops, duck cones, and the ravioli. Do yourself a favor and get the duck cones. I know it may not be as simple as ravioli – but they are amazing! The ranking there would be the duck cones, shrimp pops and then the ravioli. (Not that there was anything wrong with the ravioli, but the other two are just something I have not seen anywhere else.)
What a great find in Athens! A truly unique experience with the balance of smoked BBQ food with a fine-dining presentation. The staff were so enthusiastic and passionate about their restaurant that it was contagious! Pricing was great for the amount of food you get and their cocktail list (especially their Old Fashion Bourbon selection) paired really well with their food. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Athens looking for BBQ.
This was an excellent dinner. Fantastic service and the food was outstanding. A must book for locals and tourists!
We were visiting Athens from Canada and enjoy BBQ. Having eaten the traditional Greek meals for over a week we were ready for a change. Fine Mess lived up to the strong reviews. Service was prompt and friendly, menu had lots of options (including specials) and the food was delicious. We recommend you try it. They really care about you and it showed in attentive service and good quality. It is nicely (mildly) smoked unlike some North American smokehouses that in my taste can overdo it. We had the Spinach Crunch, Gentlemen’s Mac and Brie on Fire, Brisket, Ribs, Flat Iron Steak and a pasta special. Our only negative comment was the ribs were on the fatty side. Brisket, steak and pasta were perfect. Thanks for a great meal.
Food was excellent! Please add more wine choices!!
Great concept, great food and atmosphere! We were visiting Athens from San Diego and found this restaurant on our last night in town. It was refreshingly different. We really enjoyed the whole experience. Definitely a must in Athens!
Amazing, very nice food. We can see why it is top in Athens.
Great smoked, innovative dishes in a crisp space. Excellent service, and did we mention the cocktails?
We had a great meal at Fine Mess. The food was delicious: we had the duck cones, the Tuscan tart, a smoked lamb special, the ribs and a peach and cherry cobbler. The restaurant was an oasis for us in Athens as we had experienced very mediocre food
One of the best restaurant in athens.
I would like to recommend it to all how love good food and cocktails.
We were group of eight persons. First the restaurant was very charming. Second the personal was helpful. And avoversiona all the food was very good. So I can recommend this restaurant.
This was a fantastic restaurant in Athens. Met the owner and you can tell he takes great pride in the food. Highly recommend.
