A word from Epazote Kitchen & Cocktails
A new dining experience at the Hilton El Conquistador. Literally translated as "Mexican Tea", Epazote is prominently used in Southwest cuisine to add spicy yet earthy flavor somewhat reminiscent of fennel. Inspired by this flavor and the traditions of the Southwest.

Enjoy Southwestern dishes featuring locally sourced specialties such as Arizona grass feed beef, Southwest mountain trout, Colorado lamb, selected cheeses and Arizona grown produce. Along with your meal, you will enjoy some of the most spectacular views of Pusch Ridge, on the outdoor patio.

Featuring a wide selection of tequilas, locally brewed beers and Arizona Wines. Those looking to sample a taste of the Southwest will be able to select from a bar menu of delectable options ideal for a shared dinner or snack.

Diner Reviews
  • "For the most part everything was great. I did not like the fried Cactus because it was slimy. But, I guess that is the way is is supposed to be."

  • "My husband and I were staying at the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador. We were looking for a restaurant in the area to have dinner since we were going to the Great American Playhouse that evening. We decided to try the Epazote restaurant which was in the hotel. I was exceptionally overjoyed with the menu, our server Elisa and the fantastic food. We had the crab tower as an appetizer - the smoky beef short ribs and the salmon special for the evening. Thanks for an amazing dining experience."

  • "There is no denying the view from resort is spectacular, but everything after that was a couple of notches down. Drinks were a bit slow to arrive and very pricey, especially for the margarita ($12) with very little tequila. The complimentary "chips" were in fact a small basket containing a plain baked (burned) tortilla and two cornmeal muffins. No salsa was served, but it didn't matter because the tortilla was too thin and crumbly to be of any use for dipping. Dinner took 30 minutes to arrive. My wife's chicken enchilada had very little chicken and was nothing special flavor-wise. I had shrimp on skewer. There were six large shrimp, slightly overcooked, drizzled with an enchilada sauce. Overall okay, but not great, especially for the price."

  • "This was the second time we've eaten at this restaurant. The food is mediocre at best. Too many better restaurants close by. We went because we were meeting friends that were staying at the hotel. We live in Tucson and probably won't go back to this one."

  • "Visited for a romantic anniversary dinner. The setting was very nice; we sat outside and could see stars above the palm trees and excellently landscaped patio area which included vibrant flowers. We started with nachos (best we've ever had) before sharing the trout (decent) and the iron skillet beef (superb!) To finish the evening we had the cheesecake which was decent. The wine list is respectable; we had a bottle of Lost Angel Pinot Noir which we found medium dry and pleasantly sweet but not overly so. Overall we enjoyed the ambiance and the food was spectacular. I recommend if you are in the area to give Epazote a try. Sit outside if you can as the booths are very wide and not very intimate. We also had excellent service."

  • "The food wasn't good at all, drinks were flat and the entrees had no flavor. It was a disappointing restaurant."

  • "Ambience, hostess, and food and drinks were all good. Our waitress just disappeared and we had to finally notify manager for wine, which he was gracious enough to charge to the house. It is a nice place for lunch out on the veranda overlooking the pool in a beautiful hotel. But wait staff needs more training."

  • "Some great dishes - the salad, the pork stew to die for - others just ok. More attention to detail needed. Undercooked asparagus and white beans, food not properly seasoned, no epazote in the beans..."

  • "Took the whole family to celebrate our birthdays and anniversary. Wonderful experience. We drove 45min from our home and was worth the drive. Everything about our dinner and experience was perfect. Waitress was great. Very patient with all of us picky eaters!!! Highly recommend."

  • "We decided to try the restaurant for Christmas Eve since I am a vegetarian and have a difficult time finding good selections that are tasty when others in our party eat meat. I had been in this restaurant previously when it was Dos Locos but had not tried it since it changed to Epazote. The server was extremely efficient, polite, and knowledgeable about the selections. The food was well presented and extremely delectable. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff, in general, was very friendly and made you feel at home. I definitely would recommend the restaurant to others."

  • "The view of the mountains just behind this gorgeous resort are worth the trip from Tucson for dinner or cocktails. Although I generally find hotel restaurants to be uninspiring, Epazote has an interesting menu, and the food is well-prepared. Lovely open dining room allows for conversation without shouting, unlike many restaurants."

  • "We decided to give it a try only because it was on the OpenTable list. Normally we do not frequent Hotel Restaurants. The Hilton El Conquistador is a beautiful hotel, spa and golf resort and has always been a good supporter of the Oro Valley community: the staff members are friendly and helpful. But we were a bit disappointed in Epazote. We booked using OpenTable and sat inside. The menu is limited and the wine list too (no Zinfandel or Shiraz). I had the Big Bison Burger which was tasty but not notable. My Wife had the trout which was very good but not served hot enough (her food was warm). Our server was very good and even had the manager adjust the AC which was blasting cold air. So all that said, Just Another Hotel Restaurant."

  • "Excellent service. Main courses were very good as was my wife's arugula salad with goat cheese. I was a little disappointed with the rock shrimp ceviche appetizer which was a little heavy on the coconut milk and a little light on the spice. Very reasonably priced wine list."

  • "We enjoyed the light appetizers on the bar menu. Presentation was great as was the atmosphere and service. The only issue was we changed our party size from 4 to 6 people 24 hrs before our arrival on open-table and they had no record of it. It only took 5 minutes to set up for the larger party and everything was great from there."
