“Good food!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon in August so it was too hot to sit outside but it looked like it would be very nice in the evening or cooler time of year. There were just two of us so we only got to try two tapas – but both were very good. The inside seating area is a little funky and could stand some cleaning and paint.

“Unexpected gourmet food”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

It sounded like a nice evening - small plates (tapas) with Spanish guitars. And it was. The food was excellent. Different hummus every night, fried black bean cakes, marinated mushrooms etc. Music was very nice. A lovely evening.

“Well Worth the Visit”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

El Gato Azul is a bit hard to find, but the food and atmosphere was well worth it. We ate outside on the patio (but under the awning). They have an amazing menu of tapas (bar food) that has many surprises in it (be sure to turn over the menu to see them).

I was a bit surprised at the prices of the alcoholic drinks, as the rest of the food was not very high. The food was good, and we had no problems with the service at all.

“Worth searching for this hidden restaurant”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

The place is NOT very big, so reservations (or early arrival) is best. We were concerned about potential rain, so the outdoor seating was not desirable. However, we were able to sit under the awning, and it didn't rain. Normally sitting under the trees would be an ideal option. The food is unique, but everything we tried was very good. The only negative was the lack of selection of non alcoholic beverages. We would definitely return in the future.

“Great food, poor service”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Stopped here for lunch while in Prescott for the first time. I read reviews about the food and decided to give it a try. The food was fantastic, I enjoyed something from the Tapas menu and my wife had the chicken salad sandwich. The service was extremely slow for how busy they were on a Wednesday lunch.
