This is a wonderful restaurant serving great Mexican style food. The indoor/outdoor combination is perfect all year long. En Fuego enjoys the type of ambiance that other restaurants would die for. There is always a lively crowd of families and couples enjoying the good and ample food. It features dining in patio style areas, on decks, in rooms all of... More

My uber driver said this is the best Mexican restaurant in Del Mar! We were just going out to do last minute shopping but when he told us to go to En Fuego, we did! We had the ceviche, margaritas, nachos, fish tacos etc -- all very good and had very generous proportions.

We were just for a quick stop in Del Mar and wanted to get some dinner at a nice restaurant. We found En Fuego by coincidence and we weren't disappointed. We sat outside and had a nice view of the sunset. The staff was very nice and friendly. We both ate a salat and churros for desert. The food was... More

Everything on the menu is good. I tried the shrimp tacos and they were filling enough just by themselves. We sat in the bar, where it seemed like that's where the locals hangout. Pretty mellow group. Parking can be tight on the streets, but there is restaurant parking in the alley.

Overall – Very, very good. We were on vacation and looking for a nice place for a Valentine dinner. Almost everywhere we called was booked until 9:00pm, but this place had immediate seating. It wasn’t a ‘romantic’ restaurant, but we enjoyed it. Food – Pretty good. The tacos were really good. The meat was very tasty and the topping were... More

My travel partner and I met a friend from CA here for lunch. Staff was very friendly, service prompt, margaritas excellent, chips had tasty, unusual seasoning. Food was not exceptional, but was served hot and timely.

If you find the right seat you can see the ocean while your eating. We have eaten here twice and it is reasonable priced for the beach and the food is very good.

Good eats in an outside venue. Good margaritas and food. Great ambience unless it is raining. Limited inside seating.

This is a really fun restaurant when the weather is warm, as most of it is outdoors. It was a little chilly tonight, and the recent rains seemed to have fried the mushroom heaters. But the extensive margarita menu will warm you up! I had a Pina Colada margarita which was absolutely delicious. I wanted to try the Mexican Lollipop... More

We visited on taco Tuesday and had a variety of fish tacos. All were excellent along with the margaritas. It was an unusually cool night. The restaurant is primarily outdoor seating but they had heaters all over keeping us all comfortable. Would definitely go back. The staff is nice but slooow. We didn't mind as we weren't in a hurry.
