The best place to dine in playa Del Carmen - the scenery is sublime, the staff is top notch, the food is delicious - a wonderful place for breakfast lunch or dinner or just drinks. The view of the beach is spectacular - run do not walk to Fuego - enjoy the experience - ask for Reuben if you need anything

From start to finish world class cuisine at a beautiful location. The food is delicious with options for everyone. The service is present but not obtrusive including our favorite manager Reuben! Dinner for four was casual, laidback and delightful. I highly recommend a visit to Fuego while visiting playa Del Carmen

It was a great place next to the ocean with great views. However it took some time to get through security to get to the restaurant because we where not stating on the property. They should make some allowances for people to get in.

No tenían venta del alcohol ese día en específico por un permiso (son turismo no pueden descuidar esos aspectos) y no dieron aviso al hacer la reservación, realmente es un lugar que se presta para acompañar con una botella de vino. La comida tenía exceso de grasa, las empanadas argentinas no estaban escurridas.

Not much to say about the food as it was inedibly flavorless. Seriously, folks. NO FLAVOR. The atmosphere is lovely and the service was attentive and professional, but come here for a drink, not food.

Fuego is a beautiful restaurant in a quiet resort. If one is looking to escape the mayhem of Quinta Avenida and wants a fine dining experience, I highly recommend Fuego. My only comment is for the chef - "don't hold back on your seasoning! We americanos can take it". The ambiance, service and food is top notch. Highly recommend.

el restaurante es uno de los pocos en playa del carmen que se encuentran en la playa, sin el bullicio de los clásicos restaurantes en la playa.
el menú luce atractivo (alimentos para niños y serios platillos para los adultos), tienen un especial atención hacia las alergias en alimentos o condimentos.
fue una lástima que la visita fue corta ya que el lugar tiene mucho que ofrecer al cliente.
tomense el tiempo y el gusto de visitarlo.

Had such a great time at Fuego, the resort itself is beautiful and the restaurant is no different. We were celebrating a birthday and although we were not staying at the resort we wanted to be on the beach and were not disappointing! Every server was so friendly and attentive. Highly recommend if you are looking for a nice dinner with great atmosphere!

I requested a special romantic table to celebrate a birthday and got a beautiful table right along the beach. The view was stunning. Our dinner was outstanding. I had the Chilean Seabass, which was delicious and my partner had lobster, which was grilled on the bar-b-que. He thought it was wonderful. We had a very leisurely dinner that was capped off with a Mayan coffee and dessert. The waiter put on a fabulous display in preparing the coffee. HIghly recommend this restaurant for anyone staying either at Mahekal resort, or nearby in Playa del Carmen.

Very nice dinner; recommend the fish and the aracherra steak. This is the most quiet, romantic restaurant in Playa del Carmen. We were so impressed, we stopped made a reservation on for both Friday night (Lobster dinner on the beach) and tonight - "catch of the day", where we chose our fish with the Chef at 12Noon, and he will cook our grouper tonight, as requested.

So far, we have dined 5 times at the Fuego restaurant, during our stay at the Mahekal Beach Resort. The menu selection is fabulous and dishes we ordered have been exceptional every time. Very attentive service provided by our waiters, Rene , Ricardo and Reuben the head waiter and especially in ensuring that everything was perfect and a wonderful experience. They made us feel like cherished friends. I would highly recommend this restaurant. 5 Star in Food and service as well as excellent menu and good value for high quality food. We plan on dining at this restaurant every night for the rest of our stay.

D previous reviews were very favorable resulting in a five star rating. My wife and I don't share that opinion. Based on the previous reviews, what we had and how we were served a closer just to storage and five.

We found this restaurant on OpenTable. It is an excellent little outdoor restaurant (but undercover). It has a wonderful view of the ocean and beach of this resort. The food was exceptionally well prepared and the margaritas were excellent. Service was friendly and prices were reasonable. This is located in the middle of a resort, so it may be a bit of a walk from where you are coming. While it is kid friendly, it is definitely a place you should come to get cocktails!

We were on vacation and ate there 2 times. We loved everything we had from the cuban shrimp, cheesy potato, burger, fries, grouper and salad with pine nuts. We didn't love the shrimp burrito or the fuego salad. The service was great. We had Rene both times and he was wonderful. Would go back again in a heart beat.

Fuego was recommended to us for an oceanfront dining experience while in PDC. The setting is stunning - service outstanding and the taste of the food was very good. While there are many options to eat with over 1200 restaurants in PDC I would highly recommend you add Fuego to your list. The beach walk after dinner is a great way to end the evening and the beach here is safe and beautiful.
