From Local suppliers to your table fresh

We specialize in Mediterranean cuisine, with an increasing Spanish influence brought about by Nick and Julies' love for the tapas of Andalucia. All our meat, fish and vegetables are bought from local suppliers and cooked to order on a traditional charcoal grill. The food comes straight from the grill to the table; fresh, healthy, colourful and delicious. We have a range of salads and dips which are made to exclusive Bar Azita recipes Our chefs Eduard and Sonil have been with us for many years, making sure the food is consistently cooked to the highest quality. He and the team are always sourcing new recipes to fill our specials boards.

Our story

Bar Azita is a family run restaurant owned by Nick & Julie Pike. After living in Spain for a number of years they returned in 2007 to take over Bar Azita. They wanted to create an independent local restaurant that captured the laid back, Mediterranean style of eating. The concept was so popular that in 2012 they expanded with a tapas and cocktail bar in the adjacent premises. Wanting to bring this experience to more people in a wider area we welcome the new Hitchin restaurant to our family. Our speciality is charcoal grilled food that is healthy and simple. The dishes have various influences from across the Mediterranean, from the olive groves of Greece to the tapas bars of Spain, resulting in an exciting and unusual blend of flavours.

Bottled Quality Bar Azita’s wine list is not the biggest, but we’ve made sure it features a range of fantastic wines that cater to all palates. We have placed an emphasis on quality and try to support family run vineyards and smaller producers. Beers are very important to us. We have a selection of great imported beers from the Mediterranean and are particularly proud of our growing Spanish selection. Our managers Rory and Matt have taken a lot of care in their selection of boutique spirits especially chosen for their distinctive characters and flavour.
