The White Box, a box full of surprises
The experience of eating haute cuisine does not simply end once the plate is empty; the dishes served transport us to fond places, bring back happy memories, and surprise and excite the senses. Smells, flavors, and sensations entwine within us providing experiences that elevate the soul and satisfy, not only our hunger, but our hearts.
At Oasis, the food that we offer is of paramount importance to us, exemplified in the details, and the love and dedication put in by our great team of chefs in each one of their culinary creations.

Located in the Grand Oasis Cancun, The White Box is a gastrobar created by Chef Rafael Zafra; who, among his many accomplishments, worked alongside Chef Ferran Adria as part of the remarkable team behind five times best restaurant in the world, El Bulli. At The White Box, Chef Zafra has developed a menu – that takes inspiration from the many Michelin-starred restaurants he has worked in – to be enjoyed in a more relaxed and informal atmosphere, a characteristic of the hotel in which it is situated.
The White Box forms part of a gastronomic movement that gained popularity in Spain in 2008,where several Michelin starred chefs began transporting their culinary expertise to more laidback surroundings; providing high quality food to a wider audience. These establishments became known as gastrobars.
