With the lack of travel over the last year or so, I have made a point in visiting as many Michelin Star restaurants as possible - currently yearly tally is 11.

This restaurant surprised me with its originality and unique blending of flavours/senses. To have been included in an all inclusive stay is just outstanding. It fits comfortably in with the other restaurants of note and is a must for anyone in the area, or even worthy of travel itself.

The Head Chef: Ignacio came out to speak to every table, and our waiter, Rudy was extremely attentive. I will definitely be coming again!

This restaurant ambiance was nice and great for adults, relaxing, sampling of the 24 samples were delicious and different. The staff was outstanding friendly, great customer service. My best part of my vacation at Grand Oasis Resort going here everyday to have drinks and good conversation with the best Bartender (Christian) he definitely made the best drinks. Thanks to the other staff Rudy, Ignacio, Laura, Emilio, Luis, Daniel, Alberto,Gerardo&Florentino you guys made our experience wonderful and the food was great. I would definitely like to experience it again.

So its been about a week since my family and I have had our meal at Benazuza and not a waking hour goes by that I do not give this place space in my mind. I have never once in my life had an experience so ethereal, so earnest, so delightful than the one I had here.

Its almost unheard to find people that enjoy food and the experience of sharing it as much as the staff at Benazuza.

We had gone to the restaurant on a thursday night, looking to make a reservation but were upset to find they were booked up for our entire vacation, but Laura and Ignacio insisted that we show up every night at opening and enjoy a few drinks and see if they could squeeze us in. We didnt even have to do that much, because Ignacio took it upon himself to come find us the next day and rush us over for a reservation that someone failed to make. Id give my first born to that person that missed that reservation, if I could, honestly. Everyone that served us our meal and drink, from Luis to Alberto, Florentino to Daniel, Christian, Gerardo, and Emilio, were jovial and polite and beyond accommodating. We felt like friends to them as they sat plate after plate after plate in front of us for us to enjoy. The manager Rudy runs a tight ship, and I’ll be thinking about this experience for years to come.

Again, I can’t thank Ignacio enough for coming to find us and making our first day in Cancun end on such an ethereal note. I cant even begin to describe the food itself because I don’t want to spoil the experience, but I will gladly be bringing friends back for another go around the Benazuza table.
