Get ready for an amazing dinning experience. I'm not a fan of gourmet but I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Each dish was both a treat & a delight for your taste buds. How they make each serving a combination of textures & flavors that are truly amazing. The service was the best I had at this resort....it was so good I left a $30 tip. Would I go again? Absolutely !!!!

The coolest experience of our whole vacation. We were so blown away by the creative dishes by the chef. The service was professional and courteous. Presentation was out of this world. So many courses with really cool little props to decorate. We can’t wait to go back.

This was one of the top five restaurants we have ever been to. The food was amazing! Service by Rosendo was good although we didn’t always understand his english explanations. It didn’t matter. He was attentive and the food and experience was incredible.

 Wonderful experience!
This is an place worth doing! We were unaware of what we were going to and were delighted to experience. Many many courses all beautifully presented and delicious. They accommodated my many allergies with such ease. Be aware there are two restaurants with this name just make sure you go to the right one. Cant wait to return next time in Cancun.

 Absolutely fantastic, remarkable, memorable!
We live in Cancun and had heard about Benazuza earlier in the year from some friends so we decided to give it a try. It was simply GREAT! From the moment we walked into the hotel until the moment we left we were treated first class and had one of the best, most enjoyable meals we have had anywhere in the world. If you are in Cancun and you have 2 hours for dinner (about $60pp including 15-20% tip) then go here. You will thoroughly enjoy the 20+ courses, the exceptional service and the entire dining experience. Some of the "courses" are alcoholic tastings so it isn't as if you have 20+ different things to eat. You will not walk out stuffed nor will you leave longing for more food. You are given a perfect number and amount of portions. The restaurant is in the Oasis Grand Sens hotel and is very easy to find on Kukulcan Boulevard in the hotel zone in Cancun.

 Great menu, fine dining experience, excellent staff,
The entire menu was an experience. First time eating molecular food and they turned it into a memorable moment. They start off with cockltails at the bar, but they were prepared in such creative ways, like honey whiskey dipped in liquid nitrogen. After cocktails appetizers, dinner and dessert. Overall the food was tasty and the service was excellent. You always felt tended too and cared for, Would definitely eat here again.

Amazing! All 15 courses. From the initial moment we walked in the door we were in love with this place. Service was excellent from start to finish. Our waiters Rosendo and Ismael treated us like royalty and our 5 yr anniversary was just as important to them as it was to us! Flawless!

 Wow!
If your favorite restaurants are McDonald's, Olive Garden or Applebee's this place isn't for you. If you love unique and amazing food you can't miss this place.It's a 20 course meal that is kicked off by the most interesting drinks you will ever have. Followed by a food adventure that you will be happy with-promise. We opted for the wine pairing which was very inexpensive. The entire experience in the states would have been double the price.It was so good we almost wanted to go back a second night. I think if you're open to great food you should give this place a try.

 It easy to see why this is place is rated so high
This place is top notch from the second you walk in. The service and decor are amazing. The best part of the meal might be the pre dinner cocktails, very interesting! The food is all wonderful. There's no menu, but don't worry, they take care of you. This place is a must try if you're staying at the Grand Oasis.

 Best meal I have ever had! Michelin star quality food for budget price!
If you stay at Grand Oasis Sense you have to eat here to eat before you leave! Be advised I recommend booking with the concierge the day you arrive or the next day for later in the holiday as they book up quickly and have limited tables but it is a must! I've been to several Michelin star Resteraunts in the UK but this blew all of them out of the water, the food, service, ambience and well-constructed menu are second to none.

 Artistic Elegance at its best!
If you stay at the Pyramid do yourself the favor by making a reservation here!! From the moment we walked in we knew we were going to have an amazing time! I don’t remember the name of the bartender at the first bar, but he was FANTASTIC! Very friendly and chatty (in a good way). He even prepared 2 special delicious shots for us to have with our drinks while waiting because we were early. The bartender at the second bar was fantastic as well! He was very informative, friendly and funny as well. The concoctions we sampled were soooo cool!! I won’t go into detail because the elements of surprise and curiosity only heightened the enjoyment. Def not things I have ever tried before. Now... the food.... PERFECTION. From presentation to taste. I didn’t take any photos because I was so caught in the moment between looking at everything, tasting and listening to all the excellent information our server, Magda, provided us with each item. She was also very attentive and charming. We sampled approx 20-25 different things and everything moved along seamlessly. Add to all of the above the ambiance and you have a perfect combination. So glad we went here!!

From the cocktails at the beginning to the Clementine at dessert, this had our taste buds tantalised from start to end! Hats of to the chef, the concept and flavours were awesome! I cannot find anything to complain about, our waiters mainly Emilio were outstanding and the story that goes with each course is phenomenal! By far the best food I have ever eaten!!

 A Must Try in Cancun! Never Get's Old!
So I experienced this for the first time last year in August 2016 and the chefs and staff outdid themselves and surprised us all with the 20 plus course menu. When ones thinks of that or when I had told others they think its so much food. Clearly the opposite! There are small plate portions and spaced out enough with the wine, that is a perfect pair, that you leave not feeling like you overate. There is too much to describe and I will post pictures, but just some of what I experienced and loved, Avocado tempura, Beef Wellington, Quail, Blackfish etc. The list goes on! You will get your money's worth here and it will be a night to remember!

Benazuza from start to finish was a delightful experience full of surprises. We started the experience with some drinks served by Maricarmen that played with all senses. Our hostess Alicia was very much inviting. Pablo made the experience very personal and was very attentive. The staff, Ismael and Magda especially, treated us like royalty and guided us through the courses that were out of this world.

My girlfriend and I went to Benazuza after 3 days of attempting to get a reservation but it was completely worth the persistence. The entire experience was completely different to anything I've ever seen before. The service, presentation, variety and taste was exemplary from beginning to end. We would agree that it was the highlight of our stay at the Grand Oasis and would recommend it to anyone staying here. Brilliant restaurant completely surpassing my wildest expectations of food quality at an all inclusive hotel.

The staff is wonderful from the time you walk in to the time you walk out. This is not your ordinary restaurant. No Menu to look at. They service samples of food one after the other. So different that not only do they serve you but also tell you how it must be eaten. Different, Exotic, and Deliciuos is how I can best describe my experience. If you are open to eating something different, this place is IT!!! Don't skip the cocktails - WOW!!!! Best food experience ever!

 The most wonderful experience I've ever had
Omg! This place is amazing! We visited at the grand oasis sense and was given a special treat. You can tell this restaurant really takes pride in their establishment from the service they give you, the presentation of the food and cocktails, just everything. They tell you too keep an open mind on the food and if you do you will simply love it!

 MUST VISIT
From beginning to end this restaurant is a wonderful experience. without giving too much away, it is fun and interactive while remaining classy and elegant. I recommend this for couples or groups of friends or a first date! Rosendo is a phenomenal server! So sweet, and always smiling.The food and drinks are creative and delicious, what more could you ask for? Dress attire is semi formal.

 Beautiful Experience
We had the most amazing tasting experience here. The service was five star and the presentation of each plate was unique, elegant, and mouth watering. Our servers Rosendo and Ishmael were AMAZING as well our bartender Maricarmen! The manager Pablo is very inviting and attentive. Would recommend this experience for anyone wanting to try a diverse palate. This is a tasting experience! Benazuza offers sophistication to the Grand Oasis Cancun.

  Amazing!
5 star restaurant. Amazing food and amazing experience from start to finish. Every single dish that they bring out is amazing also the way that they explain everything that is being brought out is exquisite. Best tasting food that I have ever had. It's a must try. We'll worth your money.

 Everything was delicious!
Last week I had the pleasure of enjoying an incredible and delicious dinner at the restaurant Benazuza in Cancun. I had the opportunity to taste their creative menu and I was amazed by the original way they presented the dishes like I've never seen it before. Be ready to taste a wide selection of dishes full of flavor and textures. And it seems that reservation is required! I thank J.Pablo who had the time to attend our visit.

 Couldn't have been more pleased!
My boyfriend and I ate here on our last night on vacation. From the moment we walked through the door we were greeted with nothing but smiles and kindness! The bar experience was great, and so was the food (my favorite was the potato foam). The atmosphere was so pleasing and the staff was more than accommodating. ROSENDO was one of our servers, and he was very knowledgeable about the food, he was very polite and he gave us great customer service!! We couldn't have been more pleased :)

 Moments of gastronomic brilliance, but not perfect.
Benazuza was an interesting dining experience, offering molecular gastronomy within a warm yet formal setting. The highlight of the meal certainly being the initial "cocktail" presentation at the bar. The barman himself was extremely charming and friendly, he presented us with four takes on classic beverages including a tequila foam shot served with a 'worm', and a beetroot and red wine 'rose'. Whilst the food that followed was fun and delicious, the hype surrounding the restaurant had possibly raised our expectations a touch too high (we have previously dined at Michelin starred gastronomic restaurants in the UK and this did not compare despite what we had been led to believe). Some interesting dishes, which drew from classic Mexican and Mayan cuisine in a very pleasant environment, with great service. The restaurant catered well for myself as a pescatarian, however we did see a little more courgette and aubergine than we may have hoped - a touch more imagination wouldn't have gone amiss when catering for our dietary needs. If you are staying at the Oasis Sens and have the opportunity to dine at The Black hole, I would be inclined to say give the extra expense of Benazuza a miss as you get very similar food (allbeit to a much higher standard) to that as at the black hole but in a much more conventional dining environment. Overall delicious, with moments of brilliance, but not perfect.

 Some interesting dishes
We decided to give this a go staying at the oasis sens on an all inclusive basis despite having to pay extra. The start to the meal at the bar is a really good entertaining experience and very tasty, although one of the servings was tasteless and didn't know why they served it. On to the table, we were asked if we wanted to pay more for the Mexican wine pairing to accompany the meal. I don't like wine so declined but my wife chose to have it. This consisted of three glasses throughout the meal, two of which were awful and didn't compliment the food at all, a waste of money. On to the food, like the other restaurants at the oasis sens, there was multiple dishes which consisted of a mouthful of food, some were delicious and some were not, overall we are glad we went but it's nothing to shout home about. The service was superb which bumped my rating up from average to very good
