From the friendly greeting at the door to the creative menu and wine/beer list to the delicious made from scratch dishes, we loved this place. The steak salad was one of the best and most creative I have ever had. My wife felt the same way about the chicken-cranberry salad that she had. The staff was so friendly, we hated... More

Tapas, tapas and more tapas. Plan on spending substantial time here as you roll through the various food and drink options. Excellent food although sometimes consistency is not their strong point.

The menu is varied and I figured it must be pretty good because initially the pation area was almost filled with a good sized group od ladies - I figured they knew the best lunch places inPrescott. I had a Carnita... More

The El Gato Azul has the best chef in town. I go early bc I don't like the loud jazz while I am having a conversation. The food is wonderful!

El Gato Azul's patio along side the creek is the place to dine in Prescott! There have been weeks when I've been to El Gato three times in a week simply because I love the cozy, alfresco atmosphere and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. Weekends, its delicious to sit with friends, listen to great music, and share tapas... More

Barry's Margs are a great way to start a dinner! The Bacon Coconut tapa was amazing. The Steak Skewers were delicious. What's not to like about El Gato Azul,

We enjoyed a good bottle of red with a lovely dinner, and relaxed to the live jazz. Good atmosphere, good value, and friendly.
