El Gato is such a joy to eat at! Fabulous salads, tapas and quesadillas. Something for everyone. The mac and cheese is amazing if you want a full meal. Barry and the crew do a great job.Highly recommend!

This is our "go to" spot for a fun night out in Prescott and it's the first place we take visitors. Everyone loves the creekside atmosphere and the amazing variety that a large selection of Tapas brings. But don't stop there! Have the green chile mac and cheese or southwestern potatoes as a side worth sharing (if you don't eat... More

MAKE RESERVATIONS! OK, with that out of the way, we were able to score a table immediately (even without a reservation) and had one of our most enjoyable meals ever. Funky, a little crowded, a little noisy, but who cares? Food and service were off the chain good. We got in about an hour or so before closing on a... More

Quaint little cluttered spot, intimate seating with a small patio, the walls festooned in a jumbled mash of what looks to be, winners of a local 3rd grade art competition. The menu features a variety of Mexican, Spanish, fusion hipster organic type food. Nice variety, bland and poorly executed. Aloof, disinterested service. Good spot for a snack & drink, simple...

Thank you for your colorful description of your experience. I can only say that obviously you missed the point of El Gato. After being open for over 12 years, I am confident that your version of our establishment is not the norm. Wishing you the best in your future dining experiences in Prescott. - barry More

Before our day trip, I printed out the top10 restaurants there and when we got there, we asked a local salesperson which was her favorite restaurant. We each had different things and the three of us agreed that we would order it again. I had the muffaleta, which had the olives but was not overpowering. It came with a nice... More

If you like to experiment and try different foods and combinations - This is the place to go.

We had a wonderful lunch at El Gato Azul. The interior dining room is very small, but they have a large outdoor patio that was heated and quite comfortable even though it was a chilling 30 degree day. Our group of four had the following: Dancin' Wrap, Carnitas Lunch Plate, and four tapas: Coconut Fried Shrimp, Cajun Corndogs, Fried Goat... More

The small plates weren't that small, that is to say, I over ordered. I also enjoyed every bite of all four plates. The band played their own original songs which were very nice.
