Wir hatten eine Reservierung für ein Abendessen anlässlich des Geburtstages meiner geliebten Alicia. Leider war nur noch um 16:45 ein Tisch frei und wir beendeten frühzeitig unserem Badetag. Dort angekommen brachte man uns an einen verdreckten Tisch um uns dann eine Nachmittagskarte zu unterbreiten bzw und uns zu sagen dass ein Abendessen erst ab 19 Uhr möglich sei. So wurde die Geburtstagsfeier zu einem Fiasko wir verließen das Lokal ohne essen und trinken und vor allem um nie mehr wieder zu kommen. Open table hat immer bestens funktioniert, solche Lokale sind Open table nicht würdig.

This is a beautiful restaurant. The food was amazing, the wine was ok, there were a couple of bottles that were not available but no one told us until
We have asked for it. The service was ok, I have ordered something and got it wrong, twice, there is someone that acts as a sommelier but does not attend you at all, only try to sell and the waiter forgot that we were there. Anyways it totally worth the visit because the ambiance and food are unique, and totally worth what it cost.

Un lugar que se presta a la intimidad y el buen ambiente. Su iluminación te genera una sincronía con el mar adyacente y las instalaciones son privadas, selváticas, preciosas.
Aparte está en lo más céntrico de Playa y aún así no se percibe el bullicio del exterior.
Eso sí, aguas si no tienes reservación en el hotel (aunque hayas hecho reservación en línea), las mejores mesas se asignan con prioridad a huéspedes.

It was the perfect ambience to celebrate my birthday with a romantic dinner outside on the beach with my hubby. The ambience was absolutely perfect. It wasn’t too crowded and not very loud either. We even made our reservation the same night with no issues.

The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of, no matter what you need. We even came back a couple days later to get a Day Pass and enjoy their beachfront and food!

Highly recommended!

This place was amazing. The resort itself is beautiful. My boyfriend and I made reservations at this restaurant for Valentines. They had a special menu for that day and it was on the beach. The setup was awesome. The lighting was great and they had a violinist out there that was very interactive. You could tell the put a lot of though into the whole thing and the menu. The lobster was delish! Will be back to stay at the hotel on my next visit and the restaurant!

Un hermoso lugar para pasar una velada en pareja. Super recomendables las empanadas y la pizza especialidad del Chef.

El servicio es de calidad.

Yo acudí a una cena pero considero que también es un super lugar para ir a desayunar o pasar a tomar un trago ya que esta a la orilla del mar.

Although the view of the ocean and the restaurant located right on the beach is amazing, the food and service were not. The reviews are false, and the food wasn’t worth consuming on my birthday

The best place to dine in playa Del Carmen - the scenery is sublime, the staff is top notch, the food is delicious - a wonderful place for breakfast lunch or dinner or just drinks. The view of the beach is spectacular - run do not walk to Fuego - enjoy the experience - ask for Reuben if you need anything

From start to finish world class cuisine at a beautiful location. The food is delicious with options for everyone. The service is present but not obtrusive including our favorite manager Reuben! Dinner for four was casual, laidback and delightful. I highly recommend a visit to Fuego while visiting playa Del Carmen

It was a great place next to the ocean with great views. However it took some time to get through security to get to the restaurant because we where not stating on the property. They should make some allowances for people to get in.

No tenían venta del alcohol ese día en específico por un permiso (son turismo no pueden descuidar esos aspectos) y no dieron aviso al hacer la reservación, realmente es un lugar que se presta para acompañar con una botella de vino. La comida tenía exceso de grasa, las empanadas argentinas no estaban escurridas.
