At Bakan, you sit beneath beautiful woven basket lights that create a warm and relaxing ambience. The food is delicious. The service is friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful evening.

Outstanding fish: ceviche, red snapper and sea bass mole. Also excellent guacamole.

Tacos are just very good.

Service top end.

Our server, Michael was phenomenal. Our food was really good. I suggest the aguachile de camaron and the spicy shrimp tacos. The drinks are also to die for. Get “the wall” if you like mezcal

Our first time back at Bakan since we moved to NC. Great drinks and my sea bass with mole verde was absolutely outstanding - it had a great sear but was still moist inside. Highly recommended - but don't show up without a reservation on a weekend.

The food is pricey but delicious. I usually order fish, but the snapper is the best anywhere! Perfectly prepared! We will definitely go back!

Awesome food - every time!!!
The Suiza (Chicken) is an absolute must, and is probably the best Mexican dish I've ever had!!!

Great atmosphere, but the only (slight) negative is the wait at the front (hostess stand).
There are always 3 or 4 people there to greet you, but it typically takes about 10 minutes to get into the actual restaurant.

Other than that, this is a must for great food.

Great atmosphere and location. The menu has some great choices. Everything had was great value and taste. Ceviche was a large portion. The short rib tacos were excellent. The grilled steak platter was excellent. I love the corn tortillas and the guacamole. Drinks especially the margaritas and they have a watermelon one also. Delicious. Great outdoor atmosphere here.

We had a great meal at Bakan. Our guacamole and green ceviche starters were fantastic! The ceviche was enormous and definitely enough to feed two. It was packed full of spicy, citrusy flavor too - I’m still thinking about it!!! The tacos were really good too. We had pork with chichurron and the langosta & chorizo fillings. Both were excellent. To round things off, we ordered the churros which was my husband’s favorite dish or our entire trip. Highly recommended!

The food was good. The taco’s and
the enchilada with moles was very tasty. Guacomole was very watery and
the homemade were very dry. The magerhitas were tasty but pricy at $15 per drink. Two people 2 main dishes and guacamole and three drinks for $130 is pricey for above average Mexican food. The service was excellent. The service was excellent.
The waiter was very polite , knowledgeable and efficient.
