Our Story

Bar Azita is a family run restaurant owned by Nick & Julie Pike. Whilst living in Spain they fell in love with tapas culture and the warm, open hospitality of Andalucia. On returning to the UK in 2007 they wanted to create a local independent restaurant that captures the laid back style of Mediterranean dining. 

The concept has been so popular that the last five years we have added a new tapas and cocktail bar to the restaurant in Harpenden and more recently it has been a delight to welcome the new Hitchin restaurant to our Bar Azita family!

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.

Bar Azita’s hosts the best cocktails you’ll find outside of London. Our cocktails are made using classic recipes and some of our own twists. We try to use only the finest ingredients, from fresh juices and handmade purées to our own infused spirits and tinctures. 

If a requested drink isn’t on the menu, our knowledgeable bartenders are happy to oblige.

Food


At Bar Azita our aim is to create the lively and relaxed ambience of the Mediterranean where eating and drinking is a celebration of life!

We specialize in charcoal grilled food that is healthy and simple. Our 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 distinctive blend of flavours.

The menu reflects our aim, giving you the opportunity to choose from a selection of main dishes or tapas to create your own dining experience, ordering as few or as many dishes as you like. Our food is ideal for sharing with friends whilst lingering over a glass of wine or one of our delicious cocktails. 

Our meat, fish and vegetables are bought from local suppliers and cooked to order on our traditional charcoal grill, and the food comes straight from the grill to your table; fresh, healthy, colourful and delicious. We have a range of salads and dips made to our exclusive Bar Azita recipes.
