Very unimpressed with the food and service. The waitress got our food order wrong several times. We did not receive one of our starters and they brought out a different one instead. For main course, one of our party ordered the steak and instead was given salmon. These mistakes and delays then meant we had to move from the table... More

I am surprised this ranked so very highly on TA. The quality of the meat isn't paeticulatly good - fatty and chewy on more than one occasion. We have stopped visiting regularly because of it. There are other higher quality eateries within walking distance.

We often go for the early bird Tapas which is great food and great value. Friendly staff and a cosy atmosphere, we love Bar Azita!

This is a great place for cocktails and tapas. We sat at the bar and ordered tapas throughout the night. The bar staff were knowledgable and we ended up trying lots of different cocktails, food was great value and we especially loved the haloumi cheese and squid. Somehow relaxing place to spend an evening but with a great atmosphere!

We are not big fans of eating from the main menu in the darkish rear room, but tapas at the bar or in the window is fantastic. Great meatballs, lovely manchego, and why can't my pittas at home be that nice? Aubergine dip is lovely also. The best thing about Azita, though, is the wine. None of your generic £3.99... More

The food was average and definitely not on level with traditional tapas from the Mediterranean. Alot of the food seemed to be cooked from frozen. If you know your tapas you will know this is not of substantial quality. However the service was good and the setting was lovely.

We had a fantastic evening as always, great atmosphere and great food. We have eaten here regularly so many times and my only complaint is that Bar Azita is now so popular you can never get a table, even in the Tapas Bar and have to book weeks in advance!!!

We had another great meal at Bar Azita last night. Just like in so many tapas places, the easiest and best thing to do is look at the menu, decide on likes and dislikes, and then ask your waitress to just bring food. We ended up with a fantastic array of dishes, all of which we enjoyed far too much!... More
