We had a family meal at Bar Azita, staff were very welcoming from the start, food was great, served quickly, well and with great flavours. Starters were fresh and just enough, mains were a good mix of meat, fish and vegetables so veggies and meat eaters were looked after. Wine was good and prices represent good value for money

The 'bar' looks very inviting, hence the visit, however this is not a bar. We went to the 'bar' to have a few drinks, but you have to order food as it only has a restaurant licence. This is fine, but why call yourselves a 'bar'! This is very misleading.

Love this restaurant! Wonderful food and atmosphere always. Freshly cooked and so delicious there is nothing comparable locally. We have tried most of the dishes on the menu and have favourites which we order frequently as well as trying something different occasionally and are never disappointed.

I have been to Bar Azita numerous times and have never been disappointed. The team are friendly but efficient and the food is fabulous. Fantastic food in a relaxed yet lively surrounding....what more could you want?!

well to be honest great atmosphere but food a bit bland, small portions and not very authentic. Shiraz salad was terrible.. no parsley/mint that is traditional in Mediterranean salads and usually gives a great flavour combination with the meat/chicken shish. Had to ask three times for water, it turned up at the end of dinner!The vegetables on the skewers were... More

Myself and my partner visited here somewhat randomly on last night (Saturday) and I have to say it was the best meal I've had in a long time. Can be difficult at times to find good, authentic Spanish based restaurants so it was to mine and my Spanish partner's pleasant surprise that this place is not only affordable but delivers... More

I met up with a friend here on a Friday night, there was good atmosphere but probably not the best place to go if you're expecting to have a quiet dinner. There were plenty of options to choose from on the menu although there wasn't as much tapas as I'd expected which was a bit disappointing. Despite that I would... More

Visited this resultant many times before it's expansion and always enjoyed the food and service. The expansion has been a great success to the overall atmosphere of the restaurant. However I have been disappointed over the last few months that I am unable to book a table due to the demand, which I can appreciate as this is a good... More

I have visited this wonderful little restaurant on several occasions, I am very disappointed by the petty negative reviews that people have written on trip advisor. Harpenden lacks quality restaurants, for a town that claims to be so affluent, it is let down by average standards of food. However Bar Azita is a real fresh vibrant place to eat. The... More

A very popular Harpenden favourite, the rating is my personal view. The chicken shashlik was over cooked, dry and a bit burnt. Starters were good, especially grilled halloumi. No beers on draft. Busy even midweek.
