Always enjoy going here for good Mexican cuisine, highly recommend the guacamole which they prepare for you table side making it a personalized touch. Atmosphere is abit of a let down though and decor can get abit of an upgrade but hey what am I to say, I go there for the food not the view :)

Hi Thompson, thanks for the review! We are glad you liked our gauacamole. We will be renovating our space to improve the decor within the next few months, so hopefully you will be able to enjoy the decor along with the food.
Thanks, Team Fuego

Fuego is a Mexican restaurant located in Souk Al Bahar

I went with 2 friends late evening on a Saturday without reservation. It was not busy. The overall impression of the place was slick and smart, with an understated palate of browny purples. The restaurant space was modestly sized, and slightly elongated. The place is not unattractive, if not slightly lacking in character.

We opted for plate to share such as the "guacamole on the spot", which was made at our table and to our taste, served in a dramatic volcanic-stone bowl. For starters, we also tried the "fuego nachos"

As main course, we selected the fajitas called "fuego parillada", a mix of angus beef, chicken and prawns presented on a sizzling plate, with warm flour tortilla, Mexican rice, beans and guacamole salad. Plate was good, but not exceptional.


As a conclusion, nothing special for this mexican spot, decoration is a bit simple, miss character and unfortunately no terrace. Prices are not cheap.

It was like striking gold!! had planned for some where else, while we ended up banging on Fuego's door step! it was like a perfect strike.
Absolute delight, the place lives up to its name of contemporary mexican. Thought not found on the menu, the staff are courteous to suggest and extend a helping hand in deciding and choosing the menu when asked to. It was like everything was available in veg mode!!
yummy guacamole paste made live on your table! it was an absolute delight to see that.. food was just as delicious as it could have been. Veg platter - quesadillas, jallepeno cheese poppers, mushroom sticks ( i dont eat mushroom, but never came to know it was mushroom stuffed inside) and was equally delicious. Hibiscus flower drink, sorry cant recall the name was good, though a bit syrupy,
A must go place if you are found of mexican, even if you want to experiment, the staff is quite well educated on what they serve!! not many places have such people who serve!
excellent...
reservations are recommended by the staff since weekends tends to be a lot lot busy!!

Hi Shaniraval, thanks for the awesome review! We have launched a vegetarian menu since your previous visit, and have added a lot of new dishes as well for you to try with 'Agua de Jamaica' (the Hibiscus flower drink). So we hope to see you again!
