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.

Very pleasant ‘escape’ from busy shopping experience. Did complain about curious (unpleasant) taste of pea salad (truffle oil? oil off?) Disappointed serving staff removed uneaten salad but did not action complaint. Paid the full price after which I commented on salad to manager. To his credit he said he would have discounted cost had I told him before paying but was it my responsibility or serving staff?

We booked late and had little choice. However the evening was amazing and so pleased that we found ourselves hosted by such a brilliant team.
Thank you to the entire team for such a lovely experience and fantasist food!
I’ll drop my regards to Adam Fenwick to let him know that you represent the family & brand as true ambassadors.

This was a short-notice booking, prior to visiting the Theatre. The service we received was prompt and helpful. The food was delicious and perfect for our "quick pre-theatre meal".

The bread sticks were stale and whilst we asked for another basket, a replacement was delivered but it was the same. They seem to have gone soggy at one end when they were arranged in the basket with the other bread (which was fine)
Our main issue is that the waiter was rather abrupt.
We had ordered two glasses of rose wine but only one was brought to us. We said we'd asked for two and were told us that we had not and that we had only ordered one. It was the manner in which this was said.
We also asked which of the vege tapas were most popular and were told that they all were. Again it was the manner of the response.
This was a shame, as although we were slightly amused by the attitude, the restaurant and food were excellent as always.

I regularly visit and brought a friend along for a treat yesterday after making the recommendation.
The food was quite salty, maybe unnecessarily so. The garlic sourdough and Stilton salad were very salty

Would have been 5* but we turned up 10min early and was turned away. When we returned we were sat on a table that had been free all along?

Exquisite tapas style food rich in flavour and beautifully presented , the service is second to none staff are attentive but not over zealous. It is ideal for people looking for something different , whilst there was a child dining with their family I think it is mores suited to couples or friends meeting . A first class restaurant.

Would have scored the staff 6 stars if I could. They were all so friendly and helpful, training must be very thorough. Enjoyed the tapas, had 4 dishes between 2 of us and thought it was plenty fit lunch time. All very high quality and very tasty. House rose was lovely and crisp and reasonably priced
