Loved by over 40s

The Raven Café

Bar, Cafe, Restaurant, Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-free, $
With farm-to-table food alongside local craft beers, the Raven offers casual café style, turning into a bar with live music in the evening. This, plus a menu of mostly healthy and organic fare and an upstairs outdoor patio for al fresco dining, makes this café a must-visit.

El Gato Azul

Bistro, Restaurant, Tapas, Dessert, $
Offering the best of world cuisine with a speciality in Spanish dishes, El Gato Azul offers casual yet sophisticated dining. The bistro has just celebrated its first decade and is better than ever, with its wide-reaching tapas and a la carte menus, lovely outdoor dining area and an energetic calendar of local bands and live entertainment.

The Palace Restaurant and Saloon

Bar, Restaurant, American, Steakhouse, $
With a history that begins in 1877, this saloon has seen elections run within it, Wyatt Earp drinking at its bar and a devastating fire which saw the townspeople carrying its ornate bar out of harm’s way. The present Palace is a faithful reconstruction of the regal 1901 incarnation of the restaurant, and offers a combination of new American cuisine alongside favorites from across its 140 year history.

The Lone Spur Café

Cafe, Diner, American, $
A cowboy-themed diner serving breakfast and lunch (and dinner once a week), The Lone Spur offers some of the biggest breakfasts in the state and at some of the most reasonable prices. The Lone Spur often sees queues forming before it has opened in the morning, and if reviews of its prime rib are anything to go by, its dinner service will soon be equally popular. Visit now while you still have a chance to get in and experience one of the friendliest dining experiences in the neighbourhood.

Bistro St. Michael

Bar, Bistro, American, Pub Grub
Located inside Prescott’s historic Hotel St. Michael, the Bistro St. Michael serves good American and international cuisine in a quaint, antique setting that offers turn of the century charm. Enjoy this restored bistro over breakfast (visit in the morning when the light streams through its windows and start your day off perfectly) lunch or dinner, with a well stocked bar of hand selected wines, craft beers and spirits.

Rosa’s Pizzeria

The owners of Rosa’s Pizzeria have serious pizza pedigree. Growing up in one pizza capital (Sicily) then running a pizzeria in another for 25 years (New York), they have brought their decades of knowledge and family recipes to Rosa’s here in Prescott. Offering a true taste of Sicily, the Anzelmo family welcome each new customer as if they were part of the ever-expanding Rosa’s Pizzeria family, and these customers come back to try the perfectly balanced meals offered at Rosa’s, using the freshest and highest quality ingredients possible.

Papa’s Italian Restaurant

Restaurant, Italian, $
A family-owned venue for over 20 years, Papa’s Italian Restaurant is inspired by many generations of the Benedetto family’s cooking. Prescott’s Papa’s offers a carefully chosen menu of authentic Italian classics honed through generations of family culinary talent, with secret recipe slow-cooked sauces and expertly wood fired pizza.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
