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 food, did come at different times which wasn’t a problem as we were sharing it. One drink took until after the food to come which is the only downside. Atmosphere was brilliant, will definitely be back!!

We have lunched here before and always found it to be a very enjoyable experience. The staff are always extremely courteous and professional which helps create a very nice atmosphere. At this visit my wife and I shared a Pizza complimented with two tapas dishes and red wine followed by coffee. On previous visits we have had a ‘sharing board’ which is also very enjoyable. We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

It was great to be back in Fenwick's and the new Fuego Bar. The staff as always were attentive & friendly. A lovely atmosphere, the place is vibrant (even on a Monday lunchtime) but not too loud or overpowering. Prosecco & pizza, perfect!

All very pleasant and great service from Rachel
Very unfairly the service charge expected did not fully transfer to the staff. Shockingly bad that a % was kept by the company. Sour taste.

High quality tapas selection which seem very authentic Spanish to us.
The pizza's looked great but we never tried them.
Good to see the standards have remained as we come out of locked.
We will definitely continue to visit the great restaurant

Love Fuego, love the service and love the location. Been a while since we last visited but felt the menu had fallen away a little and have always found it a little expensive even given it’s many plus points. Ambiance this evening was non-existent as we were the only covers until 20 minutes into our sitting.

As usual our experience was very pleasant. The staff were super sweet and the food (we had two sharing platters, vegetable and cheese) was scrumptious. We had passionfruit martinis which were wonderful and we are looking, foreword to returning
