The 5 best restaurants at Oasis

Working up an appetite at Oasis

Oasis Hotels and Resorts prides itself in providing the best in gastronomy for its guests, this comes as no surprise as its founder Pedro Pueyo has been involved in the food industry for many years. In fact one of the best restaurants in Cancun; Benazuza at the Grand Oasis Sens, takes its name and inspiration from the Hacienda Benazuza de Andalusia in Spain, where Ferran Adria, one of the world’s great chefs worked with Mr. Pueyo.

Today Oasis hotels boast over 60 restaurants all of them offering something different and delicious. However there is a handful that stand out from the rest, so here we have compiled for you just five of the gastronomic delights that can be found in our hotels.

MAKI TAKO (The Pyramid at Grand Oasis Cancun)

Maki Tako offers Asian and Mexican fusion at its finest. Located by the pool area at the Grand Oasis Cancun, this beautiful restaurant will take you on a dizzying journey to the Far East with every bite, while the Mexican twist makes sure you don’t forget where you are!

CAREYES (Grand Oasis Tulum)

Careyes, a hidden gem in the Riviera Maya

Dining at a table overlooking the turquoise blue Caribbean with a caressing warm breeze and even warmer service, and that’s before mentioning the delightful food at what is without a doubt one of the jewels in the Oasis restaurant crown. The Grand Oasis Tulum is often overlooked by its bigger and brasher sisters in Cancun but that is all the better for those who like to enjoy the finer things in life while keeping a low profile. And it doesn’t come much finer than the attractive seafood dishes that this restaurant serves up.

BENAZUZA (Grand Oasis Sens)

Benazuza, prepare to be surprised

Benazuza offers you molecular gastronomy par excellence. The kitchen where chef Rafael Zafra developed a menu of elaborately decorated dishes would be more accurately described as a laboratory of flavours. Prepare to be surprised as dish after dish are not quite what they seem. This is definitely a dining experience you won’t forget!  

THE WHITE BOX (The Pyramid at Grand Oasis Cancun)

Haute cuisine in an informal and relaxed setting. That is the concept behind The White Box at Grand Oasis Cancun. This gastrobar, that at the time of writing is the number one restaurant in Cancun according to Trip Advisor, mixes flavours and textures in small ‘tapas’ style dishes that leave you wanting more. Don’t just take our word for it, come and see for yourself why so many have rated this restaurant the best in Cancun.

BLACK HOLE (Grand Oasis Sens)

More than just a restaurant, the Black Hole is an experience. As the name suggests this is dining in the dark. As our white gloved servers guide you to your table and your sight diminishes, your other senses are heightened. We can assure you that once you have eaten here all future dining experiences will never be the same again.
