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 went to Fuego during restaurant week and the prices during restaurant week were a lot more sensible than the usual menu prices.

Sadly they have raised prices on their menu and removed some bits of their previous menu but the food was delicious as usual :)

We tried out Fuego in restaurant week. The food was very nice and came out quickly. We didn’t order an alcoholic drink with dinner as we were both driving. It soon became apparent that the waiting staff were no longer interested in serving us. We would have had more soft drinks but no one came over to ask. The tables around us who ordered alcoholic drinks were attended to much more frequently. We were asked if we wanted dessert but we’re not given the restaurant week menu back to look or time to choose. My friend asked for a second coffee at 7.15. The waitress had to check the machine was still on. The restaurant didn’t close until 8pm . Overall, nice but nothing special and don’t expect good service if you’re not drinking.

Amazing service and really helpful waitress who on her first day did an amazing job of helping me with dietary requirements. The food was gorgeous. We didn’t realise fenwicks shut at 7 but when we did we understood why we had to order quickly. Really great experience.

Lovely relaxed ambiance every time we eat. It is our favourite place to spend an afternoon when visiting Newcastle. The staff in all the cafe/restaurants in Fenwicks are of the highest calibre. How do you do it?

The food and service as always was superb!
I have only marked down as they have a very reduced menu at the moment and it was not advertised when we booked.
Also unfortunately we were gave the wrong menus on arrival so we were not told of the change in the menu until we were ordering, which was disappointing as nothing we wanted was available to order.
As I first said though the food we did choose was excellent and fresh as always.

Always a lovely, relaxing atmosphere at Fuego. Food is delicious and inspiring but not beyond having a go at making some of it at home. The veg and salad platter for sharing was very good but we didn’t know it came with slices of tortilla and some falafel (wouldn’t have ordered the larger tortilla as there was plenty on the platter). Churros is a sugary treat at the end with the smooth & creamy melted chocolate.

A lovely place to eat. Feels like a good restaurant not what you would expect within a store. The food is very good and excellent value for money. We were served quickly but did not feel rushed. The children's menu was excellent and amazing value at £8 for three courses.

Overall a total 5 star for me

However, the ambience fell a little short, as part of a food hall with other restaurants, all felt a little bit to brightly lit and impersonal

Not to take it away from the food, service and value though, all were top notch
