Has quickly become one of my favorite spots in Miami. The food is excellent, drinks are crafty and very yummy, and just love the ambiance. Some of my recommendations: the guac is a must, the street corn is delicious as well. Try the Red snapper or the Pulpo a la lena-- you won't be disappointed. If you're into salads, the Macheteada is amazing!

Great meal at Bakan. The wait staff was especially helpful in explaining some of menu items. The lobster and beef tacos are delicious. Everything we ordered was perfectly sharable without having too much or too little. Wonderful cocktails. Try the Paloma.

Our 4th visit to Bakan. The good: the kitchen has still got it. The food was terrific. The less good: although our server was fine there was visibly a weird vibe with maybe up to half a dozen milling around looking unhappy and disinterested, and also somewhat disorganized. The restaurant was busy but not swamped so I'm not sure what was going on. Possibly a lot of turnover lately?

Limited menu, pricey, and not that unique. It’s standard tacos and a few main plates. Tasted fine. May go back. But would choose another location over it. Also it was 75° and they had the fans on - I had to ask several times for them to be turned off

I'm a huge fan of this restaurant group. I no longer live in Miami, so I was excited to host a ten-person brunch while I was back this past weekend. The food was amazing, the place was beautiful, and the drinks were great! However, the service was TERRIBLE. They forgot to bring us chips at the beginning of the meal. When I asked for the chips, they brought the large table THREE large chips. They forgot to take a person's order TWICE; the first was his drink order. The second time they forgot was his actual meal order. When all nine plates were served, the waitress was nowhere to be found. The staff was not proactive about refilling drinks. I understand that hiring is difficult for restaurants, but it did not lack bodies - there were multiple servers around - just no one trying to provide a decent service. I really hope the restaurant fixes their service since I have the most profound admiration for Jaguar and Talavera.

I’m a Mexican-food lover. And I’m talking real Mexican food. The one that you find only in Mexico. After several trials in several cities in USA, the food at Bakan really made me believe I was in Mexico, in one of their fine-dining places. Flavors, colors, preparation, presentation,... When you add that to a great service, amazing drinks, cool ambiance and fascinating decor (all Mexican inspired, of course) you get an unforgettable must-go place. Thank you for this experience.

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.

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....
