Nice ambiance, great menu choices

We have been to El Gato Azul several times now at lunch/brunch hour and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit. The menu offers a wide variety of small plates and tapas to suit every taste bud -- also great for sharing and trying a few different items.

8 of us wondered over to this little gem and honestly if one person in the party hadn't remembered were it was we may have never found it. Great food (eclectic menu), good value, eccentric and fun staff. Downside: one shared bathroom for all; small place that fills up quickly. Worth the wait though!

Everything about this restaurant was great - location, food, ambiance, prices, selections, etc. We had to wait about 20 minutes on a Sunday afternoon for a table for 4 but it was worth it. All the small plates we sampled were excellent as was the house made chips & dip and hummus. Definitely worth a trip back. Only downside were... More

Was enjoying the patio, the server looked as though she did not bathe, and smelled like it as well. I seriously thought she was homeless. Not what I want when eating! Perhaps management should tell servers to look presentable, and shower regularly.

A fun place to go with great ambiance and an outdoor patio. The evening we went the patio was full so we sat inside. The service was excellent, but the food was just OK. I had the Santa Fe Shrimp, which was good, but nothing to rave about. My husband ordered the Mussels Cerveza, which he said were the green... More

The outdoor patio area is so inviting - get their early, otherwise you'll be waiting in line. Their lavender tea is refreshing and the food is fresh, served timely. Can't do much better!

My husband and I were enjoying a nice day trip yesterday. It was after 2 pm and it was pretty busy . We were lucky to sit out on the patio. The lavender tea was very refreshing. We ordered the tapas ,the dancing wrap and the smoking granny quesadilla. We enjoyed the food and service was very good. It felt... More

After a day of shopping in downtown Prescott. We decided to try lunch. There's only about 3 or 4 tables inside but plenty of seating outside by the creek. The variety on the menu is why you should try this place. The food if off the hook!! We'll be back!!!

We were here for happy hour with friends. Great tapas and the Sangria was the best. We sat on the patio and it was just perfect - the weather was cool and the service attentive. We could not have asked for anything more. Will come back next time we are in town and try more of the menu.
