Sat outside nice ambiance, cool vibe, good food. Service was a little slow until we ordered one simple dessert and it took more than 30 minutes...something went wrong there.

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.

Nice restaurant with great food. They brought us our main course (we had a 3 course menu) when we just started the starters. We sent the food back and we got the same plate still enjoying our starter. I know we occupying commercial space that has to deliver money. I know that diner in a restaurant is not for having an enjoyable evening but to get nutrition in. But please, can you at least pretend as if I am a guest who pays the check? (Nothing was compensated, because of my complaints about this push-through approach, on the check by the way. Even de cortado was on the check)

We were skeptical at 1st, but the great reviews helped us go on and try this spot out. The food was awesome. The ambiance was very relaxing and beautiful. The staff from the hostess, the guy who poured our water to the waiter Michael was top 10. We loved it so much. The prices are equal to the value of food and experience. We're from Atlanta and frequent Miami quite a bit so we'll definitely be back every time we visit.

Server was odd. Food was good besides the rubber band the cook forget to remove, but it’s “part of the business” according to one of the waiters. The rubber band was in my friends food, but it bothered me more than anything. Whatever mistakes happen. At least there’s a nice ambience.
