I enjoyed delicious tapas and cocktails at the Fenwick based eatery.

On Saturday (November 25), myself and a friend went along to Fuego, a Mediterranean inspired eatery located in Newcastle department store Fenwick, to give their food and drink a try. 

Arriving at the restaurant, which is located in Fenwick’s food hall, I was taken aback by how busy it was - which was clearly testament to how fantastic Fuego is.

We were seated at a round table in the corner of the restaurant, which was very cosy and quiet, despite being in an incredibly busy venue. 

First of all, the service was absolutely fantastic. Our servers were incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable, explaining the menu and even going above and beyond to help us decide on what to eat.

Fuego offers a wide selection of food, with a huge focus on pizzas and tapas dishes. However, they also offer snacks, charcuterie, cheese, tortillas and desserts.

They also have an extensive alcohol selection, which includes cocktails, wine and more. 

The tapas dishes are in three sections, seafood, meat and vegetables. So I chose one from each section. For seafood, I chose crispy sea bass, which is served wrapped in kataifi pastry with a mojo verde mayonnaise for £10. For meat, I was recommended by the server to try the pork belly pinxo which was £6.50. Finally for the vegetables, I chose the patatas bravas, which was priced at £6.50. 

My friend (who is not a very adventurous eater - but luckily Fuego had options to suit all tastes) chose a Margherita pizza. 

We both thoroughly enjoyed our dishes. I was worried that I wouldn’t be full, but the tapas dishes were fairly generous so I certainly was.

We also decided to try out Fuego’s cocktails, choosing an East 8 Hold Up, Banana Bread Old Fashioned and a Lemon Drop Martini - all of which were strong yet absolutely delicious. 


We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Fuego, and everything from the service, to the food and drink we tried could not be faulted. 

I would highly recommend popping into Fuego for some delicious food during a shopping trip in Newcastle. I will certainly be returning.
