After a long day we stumbled onto this place and decided to give it a try as we were starving and didn't want to walk any further. After entering we were seated and given 2 battered crumpled menus. The whole place is a little along the same lines, wobbly table, cracked toilet seat etc. To be honest I felt like leaving as I wasn't confident that the food would be up to much. We stayed though, and ordered a cheap bottle of Rioja and a few tapas. It did take a little while to arrive and we thought they could have maybe brought the olives first, but we were really happy when everything turned up. The alioli was excellent, the calamari tender, and the sardines (albeit tinned) were smothered in a tasty béchamel and grilled on crusty bread. The wine was pretty decent too. The kitchen is open and I didn't hear a microwave ping once which is reassuring. I finished off with a really nice tequila too. All in all I thought it was excellent value, cheap ingredients maybe, but it wasn't expensive and they really got the best out of them.

Went on a Thursday - didn't book but still got a table for four. Service was a long time in between courses but the half price cocktails helped this go quickly! The food was absolutely delicious - well worth the wait. Will go again.

Great atmosphere, food and service 6 of us went for my grandsons 15th birthday a busy Saturday night the place was buzzing which really made a great atmosphere. Good menu choice Mexican and Spanish tapas starters, fajitas looked really nice (3 of our party chose these) individual pots provided to each with freshly prepared salsa etc would recommend the banana chimichanga for desert.

Fresh, tasty food. Great wines at very reasonable prices and professional, friendly service. Will go out of their way to provide alternative food for diners who do not like spicy food.

I have eaten a few times at Fuego's but i will never be visiting again.
Four of us went for a meal on a sunday night and were excited by the prospect of a live band, good atmosphere and great food. We couldn't have been more wrong.
We arrived at 7pm and had to ask for menus and to order drinks after not being seen to for 30 minutes. After asking again to place the order, then chase where our starter was, nacho's which is the easiest meal in the world to make arrived wrong and at 8.40pm. Over an hour to make. After chasing our main, to order desert and then where desert was meant we finished our meal at 10.53pm. This has to be some sort of record.
We won't be going again and recommend to others to do the same.
