This was an amazing night. Started right at our reserved time. First up was a course of 4 signature cocktails. Amazing and creative alcoholic drinks. Non of which were actually drunk, but eaten instead. One of them involved freezing the ingredients with liquid nitrogen and...then eating the delicious frozen treat. I love science! After drinks was about a 9-10 course meal, I lost count after about 5 courses. Each plate was very small but they came quickly and were delicious. By the end of the meal I was extremely full. That was even without the wine pairings. Best part of all was my Fiance is a vegetarian, and each dish was carefully constructed for her with a substitute to any meat or animal ingredients, but looked and tasted so similar to what I was eating. She really enjoyed being able to try the same things as I was. Keep the great food coming!More

Amazing experience. Unique and bursting with passion. If you love culture and cuisine, this is a place to go for a real experience. With a storytelling in each plate. Everyone is professional and friendly and open to share the Mexican culture to us guests. I...have years studying the culinary industry and this has surprised me.More

An innovative modern Mexican restaurant. But making a reservation is the hardest. They don't answer their phone or the emails. I had to drive to the restaurant to make a reservation. The restaurant had a ni e ambiance. The restaurant offers 20 courses. We started...with 4 innovative drinks and that was the highlight of the night. The food was creative but it wasn't my cup of tea.it didn't trigger my taste buds. The service was wonderful.More

It’s simply one of the best restaurants in the Mayan Rivera and from Mexico overall. This is a must if you consider food one of the life’s main gifts and pleasures. Every course is an entire Mexican senses experience: taste, sight (every dish is an...art piece), smell, texture… Don’t hesitate coming to Benazuna if you are a foodie person. You won’t regret.More

This was our second visit to Benazuza and the experience was stellar. The food is great and the presentation is impeccable. The only thing that could have been better was to have a welcome drink for us while we waited. Our reservation was for 745pm...and we were told to arrive 10 minutes early, so we arrived at 735pm as requested. We only started our experience at 8:05, so we were sitting in a waiting area for 30 mins. It was not brutally hot, but it was definitely uncomfortably warm. A cold drink would have at least helped tide us over!More

Not sure however priority it’s given to those staying at the Hotel, specially if you are classified as Pyramid. You can always call and ask if possible to make a reservation.
