Description: Fuego is an Argentine restaurant and cocktail bar bringing its own concept of Latin-American food and atmosphere into the Danish capital, located in the old city just behind the Royal Theatre. The main specialty is the Argentinean meat grilled, as it would be in its native land and a curate selection of Argentinean wines takes you into a deep experience. Fuego´s kitchen concept is the fusion of the meat with classical and innovative gourmet trends. In the Lounge you can choose to experience the Argentinean wines and tapas where you can try their homemade delicatessen and also their particular meat. From six o'clock Fuego's Lounge Bar offers trendy cocktails with a cosy and relaxed atmosphere by the open fireplace. On Fridays and Saturdays they host international Dj?s until 3:00 am.

“Top three moments in Denmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Our meals at Fuego were in the top three moments while visiting Denmark, which is a great accomlishment considering our amazing trip. The food was excellent and the service was top of the line. Foodies will appreciate the layers of flavors that complement each other but each adding a different taste to the dish. Let them match the wines to your plates, they do an excellent pairing.

Your toughest task will be saving room for dessert. Do not miss the desserts, even if all you can do is share one for the whole table. It is a great end to a great experience.

“Highly Recommended Restaurant !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

My visit to this restaurant was absolutely exceptional.
When you enter, you are warmed by a earthy log fire which gives the restaurant a beautiful smell along with the smell of the food.
The set menu is fantastic, and the wine accompanying the course complimented the already outstanding flavours on offer on your plate !
Each course was a delight to eat, the quality of the meat is very high, and unbelievably tasteful, the service was friendly and gave a good explanation to the menu and the chosen wines.
The deserts are so good you will be torn to order just one! ( but the creme brûlée for me was my favourite, but the fondant is also amazing)
This restaurant alone will bring me all the way from UK back to Copenhagen!

“Good food not so good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We arrived and ordered cocktails from a waiter as an aperitif. The menus were brought and we ordered our dinner. Within a couple of minutes another waiter arrived and asked to take our order. The service seemed unorganised.

Our starters arrived within minutes or ordering, we would have preferred to have waited until we'd finished our drinks before receiving our starter. The food however was very good. We did however have to ask for them to give us a break between our starter and our main as we were concerned it may arrive too soon after we had finished. We both ordered the ribeye which was good quality meat and they allowed me to choose accompaniments from a different main as I wasn't keen on the ones served with the ribeye. The main course was very enjoyable.

I felt there were too many waiting staff serving the table, with little communication between them. Service was also too quick and felt rushed. However, as mentioned above I did enjoy the food. It's not a cheap restaurant which I don't mind but the service didn't match the cost of the meal.

“Great meal, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Found this restaurant searching trip advisor. We had a great steak dinner and followed reviewers recommendations to have the empanadas for the appetizer and the molten chocolate cake for dessert. We were not disappointed. Enjoyed a lovely post dinner conversation with the manager and would highly recommend trying this restaurant for a top quality, and unpretentious evening. Price for two with wine and tip was about $268.
