california cuisine, fresh beer,
local wine & craft cocktails
We at Azu Restaurant & Ojai Valley Brewery believe the best dishes & beer are made from fresh ingredients. We look to the local farmers that we know grow quality organic and natural produce, that help give our menu that special California twist. Our bar menu is filled with craft cocktails with juices squeezed right from Ojai's citrus orchards. We feature our sister company Ojai Valley Brewery on tap and over 20 local and International wine's by the glass including wines from The Ojai Alisal Vineyard.
Family Owned & Operated since 2000. Eighteen years ago Chef & Owner Laurel Moore decided to bring Spanish Tapas & Mediterranean Cuisine to Ojai. In the almost 2 decades we have been in business we have blended traditional Tapas and Mediterranean flavors with California favorites and in 2015 started an artisanal brewery so we could offer light bodied, food friendly craft beers for hot weather. Ojai’s original California Tapas Bar, Restaurant, and Event Venue. Moore’s vision translates the best cuisine of the Mediterranean into an exclusive, Ojai-sourced menu. She lovingly restored downtown Ojai’s Bill Baker’s 1910 building, and in turn created Ojai’s eponymous gathering place for community, curious foodies and wine lovers. Her daughter, Elizabeth Haffner came on as general manager in 2006 and together they have built a warm, creative environment filled with inventive dishes and a family-like atmosphere where locals catch up at the end of the week, and visitors to Ojai find an easy mix of casual sophistication, flavors of local soil, and extensive wine list.
