From the hostess, to the server, to the dinner & dessert my friend and I were absolutely blown away! Our service and recommendations we excellent... we ordered the queso and chorizo dip, las enchiladas (enmoladas de pollo) and the churros for dessert! If you’re ever in the Wynwood area and desire Mexican this restaurant is a MUST!!!!!

The best Mexican food we have had Very fresh and authentic. Lovely outdoor patio. Great margaritas. The guacamole and fresh made chips were fabulous - chips are Mae of hand ground blue corn and then smoked and baked. Great menu.

Food was excellent but came out immediately after it was ordered. If you want to spend any amount of time there order SLOWLY making sure not to give your entree order until you’re actually ready for it.

Great atmosphere, amazing food, really helpful staff and just overall a great night! Really reasonably priced dishes- the ceviche tostado and the Queso with chorizo were outstanding. Waiter helped us navigate the menu and made great recommendations. Great to sit outside and enjoy.

Great outdoor vibe sitting at the bar or tables...we moved outside cause inside was freezing! Excellent drinks - I especially liked my mezcal - and the 4 of us shared several appetizers with the 1st round....the Sea Bass mole was AMAZING - my lobster/chorizo tacos were truly different and the special tacos were AMAZING.....if you're looking for a cool date spot or get together of any kind head over to Bakan...friendly staff also....

This is our 4th or 5th time to Bakan. This time we hosted a business meeting with 3 guests visiting from Japan. This was a special dinner and everything tasted delicious. Had a wide selection of tacos and got to try a few cocktails. Delicious. My only critique was we ordered the Chicken Adobo from the woodfire grill and it was lacking salt. Apart from that our server Stephanie was very knowledgeable about the menu and we had a wonderful night. Thank you!

We benefited from the Miami Spice menu options which we ordered all the options between my wife and I and enjoyed all the food and drinks. Our server was very attentive but not too much so. We enjoyed the nice weather in the outdoor dining area. Plan to come again.

This is the place to go if you want REAL MEXICAN FOOD, quesadillas de flor de calabaza, mole and even blue corn tortillas!!! The Manager Juan, is extremely knowledgable on all aspects of Mexican Cuisine!
We felt like a in Mexico! We recommend Bakan to anyone who is looking for traditional Mexican food.
Make a reservation in advance highly recommended!

This was our best meal out in Miami. Definitely a worthwhile place to go if you're into 'make your own' tacos, as they have a very good version of this.
