Really fun food

This place has a fun vibe and great food. We had a meal, as well as a tapa, for our first-time visiting. Scallops and shrimp plate which came with a green salad, and a caprese salad. We watched other tapa plates going to other tables and they looked good. We'll have plenty to choose from next time!

Crazy Good Lunch at El Gato Azul Last Friday!! Fried Artichokes, Green Chili Mac n Cheese, Crab Quesadilla, Pico de Gallo, Carnitas Tacos, Chorizo Cheese Bread.... Amazing! Can't wait to go back again and again, it might take years to try everything on their extensive menu. Tapas plates were very very generous, excellent service. If you want to knock your... More

When we were first seated, I thought that somehow we had stumbled into a Luby's Cafeteria - the wealthy retiree blue-hair crowd (which has become enormous in Prescott) were certainly out in force. I don't believe that anyone on the patio was under seventy, myself and milady wife excepted. But no matter. Three tapas ordered, which took a good forty... More

Thank you for joining us recently. While I'm sorry that you did not have an enjoyable experience, I have to admit that i am a bit confused by several of your comments. Our clientele is extremely diverse. Granted, the demographics change given the day and dining hour and whether or not we have music etc. Teens enjoy coming to Gato... More

4 of us shared a selection of 8 different tapas. They were all great tasting! What a fun way to try new dishes. Great service, too. Will definitely return to El Gato Azul.

My friend and I come here often, being we are locals. We share an appetizer and usually a salad. Everything is freshly made and very interesting combinations.

This is a small, cozy restaurant which serves tapas on Fridays, and full plate options. The food tastes homemade, but it is at this cozy restaurant. There is music and an outdoor patio. The prices are decent, and not overly priced. Enjoy some wine and a great evening.

El Gato Azul is a very nice place to have lunch or dinner. We especially like the sandwiches at lunch time. Fresh ingredients with some great choices that you would not see in many restaurants. Have not eaten dinner there but plan to in the near future.

I lived in Los Angeles and it does have food. Its not Paris, its not New York, it ain't even Chicago but there are Chefs restaurants there and I've eaten in a few. El Gato, (Barrys place) stacks up to the best establishments I've tried and surpasses in more than one aspect. I personally like the ambiance here, its open... More

We stumbled across this restaurant in search for a place to relax and dine and couldn't have been happier. The tapas styled food really suited us and generous cocktail sizes and wine list were impressive. Aside from the food being outstanding we enjoyed Dave's service and attention. Very friendly, highly recommended.
