Dining at Benazuza is an EXPERIENCE!!! I randomly ran across an ad for the restaurant in the Oasis Hotel guide book. I recognized the name of the chef from a talk on Harvard's food chemistry class. The class incorporated a lot of gastronomic techniques used by chefs to teach physics to non-scientists. I know I'm a nerd. We stayed at... More

Everything is out of the ordinary, but extremely flavorful!! We started with exotic cocktails, moved to unique appetizers, and and to very flavorful entrees. With this tasting flight, you only get a bite or two of each, over the course of the dinner you feel full. The service is superior. Make a reservation and go to this place.

The food and the ambience was very nice. Heard a lot about them and now we have tried them too.. A very good dining experience......Not exactly dining but tasting experience...Could be good of they can really make their guests dine instead of just giving them a taste to their menu......

It was a very pleasant surprise to discover that the Oasis Sens hotel had restaurant Benazuza on its property. I am not sure that many all inclusive hotels have a restaurant run by a world class chef who has earned Michelin stars. While not being part of the hotel all inclusive package you do get a heavy discount and for... More

At first ( and this is what we got told at the hotel when we checked... More

What an experience! This molecular gastronomy chef is pure talent and creativity. I recommend this restaurant to any person that understands gastronomy and that wants to experience the temperatures and textures blending in with different cultures of the world, including the rich Mexican culture. From the minute you step into the premises they give you great service, they accompany you... More

In a city filled with all inclusive and chain restaurants, a spark of culinary excellence and trendsetting level. Rafael brings to Cancun modern cuisine at its best, and he is as charming and accessible, we had a great conversation about el Bulli, and his experience with Mexican cuisine. I extremely recommend it, a jewel in Cancun.

I went to this restaurant based on the wonderful reviews seen on Tripadvisor. On arrival on Thursday 12th September 2013 at 8:20pm we were escorted like prisoners to the front desk where the lone reception took over 10 minutes to even notice that we were there. We were lectured that this is an all-inclusive and that we should have called... More
