If you are looking for the best restaurants in Hitchin that offer delicious Mediterranean food then you are going to love this list that our team made where they share their favourite Mediterranean restaurants in the area.

Dekora Mediterranean Restaurant & Steakhouse

First Mediterranean restaurant on our list is Dekora – one of our favourite places in Hitchin that we highly recommend you visit. The interior is stunning and the ambience is very relaxing and cosy. The staff is friendly and the overall service is excellent. Of course, the menu is quite impressive and mainly consists of Turkish, Greek, and Italian dishes.

Starters include Tzatziki (cucumbers with mint, garlic, and greek yoghurt), Chicken Liver Pate (with mango chutney, and bread), Greek Halloumi Cheese, Calamari (with tartar sauce), and Garlic Mussels (with white wine and tomato sauce).

When it comes to their main dishes, we recommend their pasta – especially the Penne Alla Gorgonzola
(with blue cheese asparagus), the Pasta Di Pollo (with chicken, pesto, and mushrooms), and the Spaghetti Pescatore (with salmon, mussels, and prawns).

We also love their charcoal-grilled kebabs like the Lamb Kofte and Chicken Skewers (all served with rice and a salad). And if you are a huge fan of fish and seafood, we also recommend trying the Fillet Sea Bass
(with mashed potatoes and a salad) and the Seafood Guvech (with mussels, salmon, king prawns cooked, white wine, cream sauce, vegetables, rice).

Mevan Restaurant & Bar

Next on our list is Mevan – an incredible Turkish restaurant that you are going to fall in love with if you enjoy Mediterranean food. Not only is the food incredible but the venue is also very impressive and beautiful.

When it comes to their starters, you have to try the Filo Pastry with feta cheese and spinach, the Spicy Turkish Beef Sausage, the Patlican Mutabbel
(aubergine, yoghurt, roasted pepper, garlic, tahini, olive oil), and the Creamy Mushrooms which have garlic, cream sauce, and cheese.

Of course, the star of the show on their menu – just like in any other Turkish restaurant, is the charcoal-grilled kebabs. Everything is served with rice and a salad – for example, the Adana Kofte, the Chicken Shish, and the Lamb Sarma Beyti (lamb minced meat, flatbread, yoghurt, tomato sauce, butter).

Bar Azita

Another incredible Mediterranean restaurant in Hitchin that you have to visit is Bar Azita. With such a stunning interior, friendly staff, and delicious food, this place will quickly become your new favourite restaurant in Hitchin.

The menu is created in a certain unique way with an influence from Spanish cuisine – all dishes are served as tapas which is also known as a “small dish”. This means that everything on the menu is served in a small portion so that you can order and try more at one sitting – and we think that this is very cool and creative. These dishes are Turkish, Spanish, and Greek.

We usually start off with the Falafel, the Vine leaves (stuffed with minced beef and rice), the Bademjansalata (aubergine, olive oil, garlic, tomato, chilli), and the Greek Salad (cucumbers, tomato, red onions, Greek olives, feta cheese).

We also really enjoy the Halloumi (with sweet chilli sauce), the Spanakopitta (filo pastry filled with spinach, feta cheese, and onions), the Pork Albondigas (Pork meatballs, almond sauce), and the Patatas Bravas (potatoes, tomato sauce).

Then we move on to their Cypriot souvlaki – Lamb Souvlaki is our favourite.

Los Reyes Tapas Restaurant

And last on our list is Los Reyes Tapas – a Spanish restaurant filled with all of your favourite Spanish tapas. Of course, this place also has an impressive bar.

They offer great selection of cured meats like Chorizo, Pork Salami, and Lomo (Cured Pork Loin). We recommend you try the Guindillas Fritas (tempura battered green chillies with herb aioli), the Champignon al ajilo (mushrooms, garlic, fried quail’s egg, bruschetta,
truffle oil), the Chiperones (baby squid with lemon aioli), the Tres Chorizo con Migas (smoked, spicy and sweet chorizo, fried garlic semolina), and the Pinchos de Montanya y Mar (tiger prawns and chorizo skewers, rocket salad).
