RESTAURANTE BENAZUZA: BEST RESTAURANT IN CANCUN

I had one night in Cancun before my trip to Tulum, I knew I had to make the best of it. I researched for the best restaurant in Cancun and came across Restaurante Benazuza. I love trying restaurants that has a molecular gastronomy experience, a science of cooking where chefs explore new culinary possibilities.

I immediately made reservations to the 20+ course meal and was excited to experience the best restaurant in Cancun at only $60 USD per person! For a meal like this in the states it would be well over $200 per person.

Benazuza’s chef Rafael Zafra is from Spain and has trained at some of the finest restaurants in the world. The restaurant is located in Grand Oasis Sens and Grand Oasis Cancun. Don’t make the mistake of going to the wrong location like I did. Grand Oasis Sens is home to the original Benazuza.

STARTERS

The moment you enter into Benazuza you will automatically feel special. We first got seated at the bar for innovative cocktails and small bites. This was actually my favorite part of the entire meal! I love how it felt like we were in a laboratory trying innovative snacks.

SNACKS & TAPAS

After our starters at the bar I was already impressed! We then got seated in a private room. As each of our snacks and tapas were presented our waiter provided us with information on each dish.

After our meal ended they presented us with the menu as a souvenir. Thank goodness because I really could not remember what I ate!

I’m so impressed with our meal at Benazuza! It was a great experience for any food lover and one of the best deals. I seriously couldn’t not believe how cheap it was when we got our bill. If you’re in Cancun I highly suggest making reservations in advance for this once in a life time culinary experience!

    Those dishes look so delicate and mouthwatering!! And USD $60 per person for so many plates are quite a steal! Will keep this place in mind if we visit Cancun!
