Description: If it is true that the first bite is with the eyes , Le Chique at Azul Sensatori Hotel is a feast in every way . From the moment you arrive , the seductive decor provides a visceral taste of what 's to come - an experience, multisensory dining adventure that will challenge notions of how good food should look, feel and taste . This is the modernist kitchen, where nothing is what it seems . The food is then deconstructed reconstructed to resemble anything .All the seasonal tasting menu in Le Chique was designed to confuse , amuse and surprise , Chef Jonatan Gomez Luna and his talented culinary team have mastered the art and science kitchen to get amazing flavors , textures and shapes . Today is the BEST RESTAURANT IN MEXICO BY TRAVEL & LEISURE MAGAZINE

“Just Superb”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Just had to review this restaurant ,amazing food .My wife and i ate here 3 times ,twice with the 16 course and once with the 22 course which was eaten in the superb surroundings of the kitchen .To watch the meals being prepared was great ,the knowledge of the waiters explaining each course ,the presentation was breathless.The smiles on every one of the staff made us feel as if they wanted us to be there and proud of the part they were taking .Also we do not drink wine ,but were served amazing juices to compliment the courses.This restaurant is better than the hotel itself.Thank you all for the food ,presentation ,smiles,the surroundings .

“Excellente!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

A culinary experience that was fun and delicious! I'm a fussy eater but telling staff I don't eat seafood was not a problem and alternatives were supplied. I still ate and loved things I had never tried before and it has made me more adventurous with my food choices.

“New experiences.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This was a food journey more than a normal meal, there was 14 courses each one more delicious than the next. We opted not to chose the wine tasting menu as neither my wife or myself are big wine drinkers.

“Weird but wonderful”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This restaurant you have to book and its best to do it early on as it does get full.We went with the standard menu (all inclusive) not the wine pairing as the house wines are good. this taster menu has at least 9 courses and each is explained (very necessary) so not only do you know what the food is, you know how to eat it. It is well worth a dining out night with a difference. it is a dress up night and guys have to wear strides and "closed toe shoes".
