"We ate a Fuego last night and had the most amazing meal. Every single thing we had was out of this world delicious. Great atmosphere and great food. We will definitely be back to try all the other items on the menu we didn't get to last night. The owners were very friendly and came and talked to us about their menu and inspirations. SO AMAZING."
"We had a great lunch to kick off the Holiday Season...everything was just amazing and Shawn & Stephanie are a great team! You must try the Paprika Shrimps and Frito Misto...calamari! Wow...and for dessert the Chocolate Cremeux...rich chocolate custard with cream is to die for!"
"Just a few weeks open but already getting busy and with good reason. We went for brunch and I had their take on Eggs Benedict which had a perfectly poached egg on a churro and topped with prosciutto wrapped asparagus, a very nice hollandaise sauce and garnished with patatas bravas and saffron aioli.-outstanding flavours. Service was friendly and efficient."
"Everything we tried was delicious and the service was excellent. Such a nice change from the ordinary restaurant experience. Highly recommend you try this place out!"
"We just finished a family outing for dinner. We had about 60% of the menu between the 4 of us and there was not anything we didn't enjoy! We even ordered the Fuego Manchego twice!! A must have!! Table side. The service was outstanding and the room was cozy. I love the style and decor. The food was the topper! We ordered and ordered to try everything, but we could just not do it."
"Have gone back now 4 times and will many more! Favorite restaurant in Oakville and there are some great ones here."
