We were really pleased with the Happy Hour. Quality of food, portions and pricing were great. We ate outside. Service great. Walking distance to the Square. A lot of locals were there which is always a good sign.

We were back visiting & despite the rain we stopped in for another great meal. The special was a Thai chicken salad wrap--it was WONDERFUL. Also enjoyed Granny's chicken quesadilla. This will be an always stopping place for us. I rarely give 5's. Super place. Quaint. Almost quirky.

Barry and his staff continue to provide among the best food in Prescott. We had dinner there recently with friends and found the food to be outstanding. My wife and I enjoyed several tapas (caprese, shrimp/spinach/cheese, crab cakes, jammin chicken) while our friends ordered from the dinner menu and both enjoyed their meals. El Gato Azul is a great place... More

Nestled next to a creek, this restaurant is bright and charming indoor with awesome outdoor dining. The outdoor dining area overlooks the creek and is heavily shaded with mature trees, exuding a very tranquil and pleasant atmosphere. The menu is extensive featuring tapas and full course meals. The tapas are delicious -- especially the fried goat cheese balls! Our waitress... More

The food and service were excellent. So was the Sangria!! Will definitely be back. They serve a variety of foods but are known best locally for their appetizers.

This is the first time I have been to El Gato Azul. Even though it was mid week and after the lunch rush (so I thought) there was a waiting line. The wait was about 10 minutes, so not bad. We were seated inside, however they have a lovely patio area under trees and very nice. We all ordered different... More

This was our third visit for lunch. My husband and I had a delightful time, again. When you first arrive, it's like walking through someone's home garden of herbs. You need to go down a few steps, since the cafe is a little below street level, bordering a creek. This restaurant has a partially covered outdoor patio for dining, in... More

We have taken guests there 3 times and everyone loves it. My favorite is the veggie quesadilla and my husband likes the carnitas, but everyone we take orders different things and they were all impressed. And the sangria is spectacular.

The food was delicious, but a little expensive for what you get. Very good service. The decore could use improvement.
