 Great variety and a great meal!
My girlfriend and I just got from a week at the Grand Oasis Pyramid and we both agreed that the best meal we had was at the White Box. It's a tapas-like restaurant where you choose a dish from about ten different categories. The amazing wait staff will help you out, but you can't go wrong with your choices. I highly recommend the broken egg mushroom dish!

 You must try the potato waffles!
This is a lovely intimate restaurant which you can book for from 4pm on the day you wish to visit, I recommend getting there before 4 to guarantee a table as it was extremely busy every day. You must also try the waffles, wow they were heavenly!

Writing this review on behalf of the staff, they were helpful and easy going. I went there twice as part of my stay in the Grand Oasis Cancun. Giovanni, Tiare, Cesar, Adrian , Ignacio, Higo and Andres were attentive and took care of me. The chef's name was Abraham. I would visit again anytime.

 Classy and Elegant Fine Dining at Grand Oasis Cancun
Had a great experience at The White Box restaurant at Grand Oasis Cancun.The food was by far the best on the resort! I have to say the service was amazing but I have to sat so is the service at all other restaurants on the property. Jose, Ricardo, Cristian really took care of my sister and I. White classic atmosphere, Tapas menu with MANY different choices for a variety of eaters and not to mention the beautiful view of the water. I am very selective about what I eat and I felt very satisfied with the menu. Desert was my delish as well! Will definitely be back on my next vacation to Grand Oasis. Cheers!from the Toronto Girls!

Be back to Cancun, and chose the hotel that where the white box is.. The reason is I want to come back to eat at the white box,, and YES, NOT disappointed at all. The white box is still the same standard from food and service... I came here last year because of the reviews on TripAdvisor, and extremely impressed from this restaurant. This time I wanted to come back here to eat. Yes, still the same ..... even better. One of my favorite restaurant in the world.. Food and service is 5 stars......

 Excellent service
The service Cesar, Adrian and Ignacio provided made The White Box one of our favorite places to go to dinner. The food is great and you always leave feeling satisfied but not too full. Each plate is presented beautifully. We visited this restaurant three times this week and never left disappointed. Even when they were busy, the three servers would check on us to make sure we had everything we needed. The restaurant only allows 20 guest at a time so first come, first serve. If you are always running late that might bother you. However, we found that made the service really personable and they were always attentive to all guests. A must visit if you are at Grand Oasis Cancun. It takes a really good manager to run a restaurant this well. So thanks guys for providing us with a five star experience all the time.

 Amazing!!!-- must in Cancun
Our family has been coming to Cancun for over 16 years. This is one of the best we have ever seen!! Our girls and us decided to come back to the Oasis hotel just because of this restaurant. The atmosphere, service, view, and food is top notch. The food alone is spectacular; it captures Cancun and its beauty to the best with flavors out of the world. We highly, highly recommend coming to this spot when visiting Cancun- memories of a lifetime will be made. -Moreno Family

We simply loved the atmosphere, the view of the beach, the decoration, the food and the service! The service by Giovanni, Tiare, Ignacio, César, Adrián, Hugo and Andrés could not be better. They looked after every little detail and were always alert to any of our needs. The food was simply awesome! Congratulations to Chef Abraham!! His Tapas-like creations were exquisite. We specially loved the cheese box (with the most delicious compote we have ever had), the watermelon and cherry tomatoes salad, the blackened shrimp, the salmon bagels, the prawns and the cheese cake. Delicious! We could not help going back every time we had a chance. We heartily recommend this restaurant.

So far, have been back twice. The food is great, you get to discover a lot of dishes in one sitting. The staff there is wonderful and helpful. In addition to that, they advise a lot on the menu and asked about particular allergies and adapted some dishes when possible.

During our week visit to Cancun, we ate supper at The White Box three times. If it wasn't for the excursions and late arrivals back to the resort, we would have eaten here every night. The service was fantastic, the staff were outstanding and the food was to die for! One thing we were worried about on our first visit was that we would leave there still hungry. This is not the case at all! You will leave feeling satisfied. I highly recommend the salmon bagels, blackened shrimp and cheese box. If I return to this resort, I will be sure to pay a visit to The White Box.

Small fine dining restaurant overlooking the ocean. Was a little hard to get into as you could only book the day you were going and you have to book in person at 2pm, first come first serve to book for the evening. A little frustrating if you have plans to venture out most days. A normal booking system or for concierge to book for you would be a big improvement. We were also told when booking you must wear long pants or have your knees covered and proper sandals, however on arrival other guests were on very short dresses. These are the only complaints, the food was amazing; the wine lovely, the ambience cute and unique, and the staff were excellent and very attentive. Would highly recommend, just be there at 2 on the dot to book for that night.

We stayed at the Oasis Palm for 4 nights. Our last night we decided to dine at The White Box. What an amazing dinner. The staff was incredible, Giovanni runs a great team. Chef Abraham's food was fabulous. The menu is tapas style so you can try many different plates. The cheese plate with pineapple marmalade....yum and the langostinos were cooked to perfection. The night prior we ate at Maki Taco at the hotel too which was also an amazing meal. The rest of the restaurants at the resort need an overhaul where there food was mediocre.

Make sure that you plan an evening to enjoy The White Box for dinner during your time at Oasis Palm in Cancun. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was really nice, and the service was incredible! My husband and I tried a variety of the tapas dishes off the menu and enjoyed everything we tried. The restaurant looks out over the ocean and we were treated to a beautiful sunset that complimented our wonderful meal quite well. We went to the 6:30pm seating (we had young kids in the kid's club) and we were the first ones there. You don't need a reservation. They have multiple seatings that accommodate 20 people each. The space is beautiful and I'd highly recommend making The White Box one of the spots you enjoy at Oasis Palm!

Thanks to the reviews I knew about reservations opening at 2pm. The White Box was definitely worth the hour I waited in line to get a reservation for that night. The first night we visited with a party of 6 our servers were Cristian, Ricardo, and Sylvia our hostess. They were very helpful with the menu item descriptions and made great recommendations. The food portions were perfect, the ambiance breathtaking, did I mention this was part of our all inclusive at The Pyramid at Grand Oasis!! From beginning to end a phenomenal experience We came back a second night for an unforgettable romantic dinner for two on the beach..We will definitely visit again.

We were there this past Monday and I can still feel the cocoa and the salmon swirling in my mouth, creating a combination of flavors as explosive and ethnic as Mexican culture often is. Our waiters Giovanni and Hugo were absolutely professional and caring, specially when I told them about my allergies and diet restrictions, the kitchen staff was immediately made privy of this situation and did the necessary arrangements. I'm very grateful to my friend A. for making us part of this truly delightful experience.

 Amazing!
The highlight of our trip so far we had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. We walked to the Omni Hotel from our hotel and entered The White Box which is next to the pool and beach. The restaurant is literally a white box! Each couple shares each small plate for two of tapas and it is advisable to choose one from each category. Each corse is immediately followed by the next. Service is impeccable. We had the avocado surprise, cherry tomatoes that were amazing, tempura shrimp delicious, salmon cocoa, smoked salmon bagel with salad, brownie mouse and a bottle of Gewürztraminer wine. It was the very best meal and most enjoyable experience that we have had in all of Cancun—thank you! We will be back!!!

 Amazing 22 course dinner
Tasting menu is out of this world. I had never experienced such wonderful creations, refer to the pictures but I assure sure it tasted even better.! Service is incredible, special thanks to manager Jonathan for squishing us in last minute and giving us a table with an awesome view. If you're staying at oasis make sure you have a black bracelet so you get access to it and also go the at 2 PM sharp to make your reso on the day of. Highly highly recommend.!

 Delicious food
The white box was exceptionally good and the service was excellent. We loved how we were able to taste some of the finest ingredients in all our food. My husband enjoyed it so much he called out the chief to congratulate him for his exceptional service!

 Great restaurant
Great food and service, highly recommended. One of the best restaurants I’ve ever visited. If you’re in Cancún you MUST visit it.

 Amazing!
The highlight of our trip so far we had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. We walked to the Omni Hotel from our hotel and entered The White Box which is next to the pool and beach. The restaurant is literally a white box! Each couple shares each small plate for two of tapas and it is advisable to choose one from each category. Each corse is immediately followed by the next. Service is impeccable. We had the avocado surprise, cherry tomatoes that were amazing, tempura shrimp delicious, salmon cocoa, smoked salmon bagel with salad, brownie mouse and a bottle of Gewürztraminer wine. It was the very best meal and most enjoyable experience that we have had in all of Cancun—thank you! We will be back!!!

 It's almost too much food!
We enjoyed eating here during our stay. the dishes are small and meant to share but if you choose one from each category, it is too much food for one sitting. We had a little trouble with some choices because we don't eat pork or shellfish but we were easily able to substitute. I don't think I would pay to come onto the resort to eat here though. They also didn't have all the options available from the menu.

 Very good food
The food was very good and the service was excellent!! The restaurant was very clean and atmosphere was perfect. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was the restaurant prices were for a five star facility, which the restaurant was not. So, I will look for another restaurant that is highly rated on this website.

 interesting (and good) assortmant on the menu.
It all tasting great and the service was outstanding. The only problem we had was a major thunderstorm where the rain came in through the top of the window and splashed on the ledge (where my husband was seated) and he got soaked.

 Mixed reviews
I went here with a group of 7. The restaurant is "family style tapas" so we were only allowed to order 1 item from each menu category. This really restricted what we could get since some people had allergies or varying tastes.. For a group of 7 I think we should have been allowed to order by couple at least.

 Return visit not as perfect as first visit
Located in the Grand Oasis Cancun Hotel, my husband and I came to White Box 2 years ago with another couple. It was our first time and it was wonderful, fun and so unique. We were back in Cancun this year and it was at the top of our “to do” restaurants. We talked to our concierge about making a reservation for 2 days later. Turns out that they only accept reservations from outside resorts at certain times during the day and we were at The Royal Sands. Our concierge had to call them to find out what time they are taking reservations that day for outside Grand Oasis guests. Then they had to call back at that specified time to make the reservation. Really??? I stopped by the concierge desk the day we were hoping to go and one of the guys on duty was actually on the phone waiting to make our reservation and while there, he got hung up on. At that point we were ready to move on to one of the many other wonderful restaurants in Cancun. A while later our concierge found us at the pool and said that our reservation was confirmed, but also relayed the information that we had to pay in cash at the front desk of the resort, before even going to the restaurant and to (bring cash for their tip...that part is accurate) as they are not set up to include tip in the bill. With unlimited wine and liquor, our bill would be $40. per person.We arrived at the resort to find out that we didn’t have to pay at the front door, information that we later conveyed to our concierge at the Royal Sands and we were escorted to the restaurant which sits just above the beach with beautiful ocean views. We arrived a few minutes before opening, but quickly seated at an outdoor table for 6.The menu has 9 categories with 3 or 4 options per category to choose from. Some of our choices my husband and I made were the Fresh Watermelon Salad, Canned Tuna, which seemed to be everyone’s favorite, Marinated Wild Fish, Tempura Asparagus with Tangerine Honey, Baby Vegetables with Salmon, BBQ Veal Brioche Burger with melted cheese...another favorite for everyone. Black rice with squids and garlic mayo was my least favorite and lastly our 8th course was Sea Bass with tomato cream and dried fruit.With dessert yet to come, most of us were pretty full, but picked 3 items that we all shared...Strawberries marinated in vinegar and nitro cream, Brioche with Almond ice cream and lime, and to finish off the evening a Bowl of Warm Chocolate Cake, caramel and vanilla ice cream.Unlike our first experience at The White Box where the restaurant was full while we were there, this visit had empty tables. We enjoyed this visit, but it wasn’t a WOW like our previous visit.I must finish this review by thanking the employee at the front desk of the resort who escorted us to the restaurant and our waiter, who walked us back to the front door of the resort when we were ready to leave, as this resort is huge and we probably would have gotten lost.
