Stumbled across this little local restaurant while visiting a friend in Prescott. It has all the appearance of a casual, cute little place but there was nothing outwardly remarkable about it so I was so surprised to discover that the menu was so inventive. We decided to try the tapas instead of a typical meal and the food was so... More

This restaurant had such a European atmosphere. We did outdoor dining for dinner and there was entertainment which added to the ambiance. Four of us dined, and we all ordered something different. Each of our entrees were superb!

We enjoyed a Happy Hour dinner of four different tapas and a couple of glasses of wine. Great variety of very nice and unique tapas reasonable priced. Happy Hour gets $2 off of many tapa selections and $1 off of many wines. We split the Jammin' Chicken, Green Chile Carnitas, Brie Nachos and the BB cakes. We loved them all... More

We love Barry's little restaurant! We go for a medium priced wine or beer & the tapas. They have the best small portion menu in town. We will order 3 tapas & then just keep adding another until we can call it dinner. The food is wonderful, try at least 5 small plates $4-$8 and it makes for great fun.... More

El Gato Azul offers a unique dining experience with the tapas menus of outstanding options. We enjoy the green olive tapanade and the goat cheese with sunflowers and pickled onions with pita bread. There are many other great choices to consider. In addition the full menu offers some flavorful dining options that are sure to please. While the wine selection... More

We regret it took us so long to find El Gato Azul. Having dined three times in the past few weeks, El Gato Azul has earned the ranking of a favorite restaurant in Prescott. They offer a relaxed primarily outdoor patio setting, consistently good food, wide variety of Tapas complemented with some very flavorful main entrees, and warm personal service.... More

We love going to see our friend, Barry Barbe, the owner and a dear friend. His food is so good, never had anything there that was not. We always see someone we know and every one is very friendly, very laid back place. We try to go to ElGato at least two or three times a month.

The patio seating was partially covered and we didn't get wet as it rained. The stream running by added to the ambience and the server was a delight! We... More

What a nice place to sit and enjoy the outdoors while sampling a variety of well prepared and tasty food items...crab cakes, mushrooms & garlic, brie & onions on a tortilla and their version of cheesy potatoes. Attentive service and nice food at a reasonable price.
