Although the Turks and Caicos has grown and evolved over the years, with ever-growing visitor numbers and a reputation as a luxurious vacation destination that’s been rightfully earned, the nightlife scene on the islands has not quite caught up to speed. However, Aziza Turks and Caicos attempts to fill this gap by offering a unique combination of nightlife and fine dining in the tourism district of Grace Bay. At Aziza, meals are inspired by a combination of the Mediterranean and Caribbean, all prepared using fresh, authentic ingredients to create an explosion of flavors that will make your dining experience an unforgettable one.
For starters, you can choose from calamari, a variety of salads, za’atar fries, salmon crudo, and more. You’ll also find a number of tasty options for your main course, including lamb lollipops, chicken, salmon, beef, and veggie kebabs. These can be paired with delicious Turkish rice, grilled asparagus, and charred broccoli, to name a few.
If you’re craving something sweet, you’ll be hard-pressed not to try one of Aziza’s delectable desserts. The restaurant’s ice creams, homemade apple pie, saffron crème brulee, and baklava are sure to leave you wanting more.
Cocktails and Drinks
If you’re feeling thirsty, you’ll find plenty of classic cocktails on Aziza’s menu, from Negronis to Old Fashions and Manhattans. A wide range of refreshing martinis, mojitos, and margaritas are also on offer to quench your thirst. Alternatively, you can choose from frozen drinks, beers, wines, or even mocktails, ensuring there is something for everyone.
The highlight of a visit to Aziza is undoubtedly its atmosphere. The architectural design of Aziza brings the essence of Tulum in Mexico to the Turks and Caicos by forging a stunning blend of Bohemian and Moroccan styles with a Caribbean flair. This is evidenced by the overhead bohemian lanterns, wooden roofing, and surrounding palm trees. For the Instagram-savvy traveler, Aziza is the perfect spot to take a picture or two to update your feed or simply to share memories of your time in the Turks and Caicos with friends.
Aziza opens early for dinner, but later in the evening, the establishment transforms into the ultimate late-night hangout spot, complete with a DJ, live entertainment, a rooftop lounge, and hookah (also known as shisha). For these reasons, Aziza is sure to appeal to the traveler looking to explore the late-night scene in the Turks and Caicos while enjoying a delicious meal.
Aziza is relatively new to Providenciales, having only officially opened in May of 2022. However, it has quickly become a popular option for locals, tourists, and even celebrities, with the likes of Canadian rapper Drake being spotted at the establishment.
As with most fine dining restaurants in the Turks and Caicos, menu items are on the pricier side but are consistent with what would be expected of a restaurant of its caliber. As Aziza has become quite popular, reservations made in advance are highly recommended.
You’ll find this popular hot spot in the heart of Grace Bay, just across from the Casablanca Casino. A number of the island’s resorts, including Royal West Indies Resort, Grace Bay Club, and Ocean Club West, are also nearby. For those traveling by car, a quick ride of about 7 minutes from anywhere in Grace Bay will take you directly to Aziza’s doorstep, with on-site parking available. Taxi drop-off and pick-up services can also be arranged.
