We traveled from Phoenix to Prescott for the first time in over 10 years living in Arizona and took my in-laws with us since it was my Father-in-law's birthday. We looked around at the many shops and eating places on the strip and decided that we would try El Gato Azul World Bistro. (The Blue Cat) Getting into the place... More

This restaurant is "southwest Mediterranean". The way we eat here is to order a variety of tapas, which always ends up being more than enough food. I have no words to adequately describe the culinary glory of those tapas. This restaurant is always a great meal and there seems to be an endless number of tapas dishes to try. The... More

Quirky little restaurant with lots of different menu items. Summertime to fall is best, sit outside and listen to music on Fridays.You won't be disappointed.

David was our friendly waiter. We ordered tapas-lamb kebabs , caprece, Santa Fe shrimp, sun flower goat cheese--everything was excellent. And it was happy hr so we enjoyed margaritas and sangria. Definitely a wonderful place to eat.

We took our son here for his birthday several weeks ago. I had the kale,quinoa and chicken salad and thought it was excellent. For dessert, we very much enjoyed the chocolate ganache cake. My husband decided to take me to El Gato for my recent birthday. We ordered 5 different tapas. We will never do that again! We didn't finish... More

I love the creativity of Barry the chef/owner. This is my favorite dinner spot in town. We take all our out of town guests there & it's always a hit.

The indoor section of the restaurant is VERY small- maybe 7 tables. There is an outdoor seating area with space heaters. Partner and I made reservations. They wanted to seat us outside (approximately. 50 degrees) but neither of us wanted to freeze eating dinner. Finally, they seated us inside next to the kitchen. Restaurant inside is EXTREMELY noisy. When I... More
