Benazuza is a 20+ course foodie experience that will approach everyday ingredients in a fun way. Benazuza is located in The Pyramid at the Grand Oasis, specifically inside of their casino area. If you are not staying at the hotel, be sure you tell the gate keeper that you are going to this restaurant when approaching the hotel. The workers will point you towards the restaurant. The hotel itself is beautiful, it feels like you are walking through an indoor plant nursery. The meal started off at the bar outside of the dining area, where reimagined cocktails are served before your meal. My party and I were served by Luis here who was the sweetest and thoughtful. Luis's cocktails set the expectations very high. Then you are moved to the dining area where you are offered a wine menu and the appetizers and entrees begin coming out. Each dish was explained and plated perfectly. They are small plates, not full plate coursed meals. I wish the cocktails were served at the end of the meal as the heavy sweetness factor did fill us up by the middle of the dinner, we were stuffed. If you are in cancun I believe that this is a necessary stop in your itinerary. For around 125USD per person you will have a classy dining experience. Email the restaurant beforehand to make a reservation, they're not the best with their communication but once you get a reservation, you have no worries. Get the bottle of wine with dinner- treat yoself.

We weren't staying in the hotel but given the great reviews thought we would make the journey. I wouldn't really say it was worth it. It was Mexican themed the menu and in my opinion didn't really give that WOW factor. Only one proper fish and meat course the rest were a bit bland. Corn / cheese etc. I wouldn't go back again and it was our most expensive meal whilst in Cancun. The restaurant was located in a dead quiet very average hotel and didn't really match with its surroundings.

This 5-star review is really for a 5-star restaurant.  Benazuza has been voted the 5th best restaurant in the world, and deservedly so. It has also been voted the best restaurant in Cancun, and I agree. The Executive Chef, Rafael Zafra, worked with Ferran Adrià (from El Bulli) and is a star in his own right: he had 2 Michelin stars. The cuisine is best described as molecular gastronomy with Mexican flavors.  Dinner consisted of a 20-course tasting menu with an optional wine pairing. Each course, from the incredibly creative drinks to the desserts was amazing.  The description from the menu does not give you a hint at what you will receive on your plate.  Photos of the food alone do not give you an idea of what each bite-sized morsel will taste like.  This dinner is truly an experience. We dined here last year and could not wait to come back to Cancun as an excuse to have this experience again. The service and décor are impeccable as well. I won't name our servers because I want to praise all the staff, from the hostess, to the bartender, the waiters and Chef and kitchen staff. Bravo!
