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.

We were greeted upon arrival and show to our table we’d reserved online. We chose the St Valentine’s set menu and enjoyed a tasty selection of food, some of which we hadn’t tried before.

The food was delicious and all of the staff we encountered were friendly, warm and welcoming.

We’d be delighted to dine at Fuego again.

Great service from the staff towards all customers. Helping people with young children which was lovely to see.
Couldn't believe how delicious the seafood pizza was. Laden with sea food. Absolutely delicious.
Always enjoy my visits to Fuego where there is a great mix of people of all ages.

We have a ticket to town today and it never disappoints. The food is wonderful, the staff are wonderful, even the house wine is wonderful. Over praised? Perhaps, but it does deliver.

We had a lovely and most enjoyable lunch and despite the restaurant being very busy the service was still good. The waitress did manage to check that everything was fine and the six of us ate a wide variety of dishes and found no fault with any of them. A most enjoyable experience, thanks.

The food is excellent, service is excellent especially the manager who checks that everything is fine, she is friendly and professional and a great ambassador for Fuegos. We have visited many times and never had anything other than good service and good food.

I took my parents for a meal in the early evening, the food was really tasty, we had starters, mains and drinks. I can recommend the chickpea soup, and the mint spritz drink. Portions look quite small, but they are filling, we had plenty to eat. My parents hadn't been there before, and said they'd like to eat there again. The waitress was helpful, and attentive without being pushy.

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.

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 😢
