Approximately 30 tiny dishes are served in the course of almost 2 hours. Excellent experience for food lovers that are not afraid of experimenting with food and first of all they like shell fish and sea food. When you order a wine you will be charged extra. The price of wine vary depends of your preferences. It could bed between... More

But some how they accepted us for breakfast. This 15 courses breakfast was one of the most spectacular dining experiences I ever had. The chef basically offered his interpretation to every type of breakfast in the world in the form of a tapas breakfast meal. The techniques were amazing and the tastes memorable. We had juices and yogurts and butters... More

I was lucky enough to have Tasting Breakfast menu at Benazuza restaurant in the Grand Oasis Sens and it couldn't have been more luxurious. I was waited on by 3 excellent gentlemen called Juan (head waiter), Alfonso and Fidel. As I was alone they balanced the service and chat perfectly. I was allowed to read my paper and sample the...

First of all- my staff was Juan, Alfonso, and Fidel. We were staying in the VIP portion of Oasis Sens where we had 1 free breakfast and dinner at Benazuza. The food is molecular gastronomy, and the staff is incredibly passionate, hard-working, and it is obvious that each member is exactly where the want to be. They love what they... More

The courses were especially prepared, each an awesome blend of flavors and textures- from coffee to yogurts, fruits, eggs and pastries - we did not think it would be filling but a pleasant surprise. Décor is very stylish and attractive. The service from the team of Juan Zambrano, Alfonso and Fidel was top shelf.
