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 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

The host was amazing . I thought we had booked seats at the bar area but the high seats were in the restaurant. She moved heaven and earth to move us. Food great as always. Drinks a bit pricey.

Beautiful clean and fabulous atmosphere, service was great and all staff happy to be there. Food was delicious and freshly prepared and served hot, we had pizza and salad, desserts and coffee, all delicious. Slightly more expensive than other places but definitely worth the extra, very casual and relaxing I would definitely recommend.

Great lunch, we asked to swap to a bar seat as atmosphere much better than being stuck in a corner. But food and drinks service up to their normal excellence.
