Fuego at Fenwick Newcastle

Set within the stunning Fenwick Food Hall, Fuego is a Mediterranean-inspired wine bar and restaurant. Here you can enjoy a light snack or full meal from a menu ranging from Mediterranean tapas and dishes to Fuego’s signature offering, Napoli style hand-stretched pizzas.
The name ‘Fuego’ was inspired by the feature wood stone oven, from which many of the restaurant’s dishes are delivered. As well as being influenced by this striking focal point the menu also draws inspiration from the Food Hall’s inherent focus on charcuterie, cheese and delicatessen.

Guests can expect to find an extensive drinks menu that includes a choice of 20 wines by the glass thanks to a state of the art wine preservation system, specialist craft beers from European artisan producers and chic aperitifs such as an Aperol Spritz or a Hugo.

Lovely surroundings, nice food, good service and something for everyone. We took our 2 teenage kids and they both enjoyed it and me and their Dad enjoyed a glass of wine. Great experience.

Food and staff are excellent but it always taints the experience when you arrive at front reception and are not acknowledged by the man behind it!
Fortunately one of the girls came to the rescue.

We had booked in advance no no problem with being directed straight to a great table with very comfy seating and ample space. Very attentive staff with a good attitude.
Lovely food had the Xmas menu, good value as 3 courses for £22. This was a treat for my husband and I and we were very pleased with our choice.

It was a shame that our drinks came well after the food. Food was delicious, couldn't fault it.

A really relaxed and informal atmosphere with delicious, freshly cooked and authentic (mezze) food and great wines too.
It is always a pleasure to have lunch here.

I would recommend to a friend with the explanation that it is very busy, very crowded and noisy.
The food is interesting but pricey , we ordered patata bravas with our cheese and vegetable platters but they never arrived.
We reserved the table at for 1 pm so expected it to be busy but it was impossible to have a conversation as it was so noisy. Not sure what time it would be more comfortable to eat there.

Food was really nice and tasty, but would have lived bigger portions, and they do a brilliant Gin and rubato/lemonade will definitely have 2 the next time, as I will definitely go back again. 🥳

I booked online and called later to reserve a corner table which was confirmed. When arrived there was no record of my telephone conversation and we did not get our requested table. Disappointed 😢

Lovely lunch here with my son. The Grand Platter is a must with a delicious mixture of meat, vegetables, cheese, olives. In itself it’s enough really with the addition of a bread box. We had a few mores dishes as well, with prawns and beef. The desserts are very good too. The lunchtime atmosphere here is really buzzy and fun. This is our second time here, based on an excellent first visit.

I have been to Fuego a few times and have always found the food to be of a high standard
The service was good and our waitress friendly and helpful.
I wouldn't hesitate to visit again and would recommend Fuego to friends.

If going at lunchtime think best to book a table. There is quite a good choice of food, the menu seems to change as was a different menu from when I dined there previously, didn’t have the charcuterie board for sharing but saw one it looked extremely good.

We were so tempted by the vegetarian selection that we ordered far too much food. This was a pre event meal and was the perfect start to the evening.

Lovely food. Very expensive though. I've had better tapas in Spain for a quarter of the price.
Service is too quick. We sat down and ordered 7 dishes and had eaten everything 35 minutes after we sat down. If they wanto serve like a tapas bar, maybe bring the price down.

Great food, great wine, great service. Food came at different times which was fine. Would definitely visit again, probably for a lunch rather than evening.

Excellent service and good food. I had a nice pizza but found the olives as a starter on the large side with large stones. I had booked but arrived early and there was no problem being shown to a table straight away.
