Bakan was a great “fancier dinner” that was very reasonably priced!! The space was beautiful and the food was delicious. Only downside was the server acted like it was an inconvenience to split our check 4 ways..

Excellent food and drinks and service is bit slow. Over all I remind Bakan. Stand outs are the grilled salad, queso fundido with mushroom and their esquites. Their tortillas and blue corn and made in house

Quality, creative Mexican food in a stylish but casual environment. Device supper delicious. Love the homemade blue corn tortillas. Portions are big so prices are appropriate for the quality and size of each dish. Great service

First time coming here and we loved it! The ambience is great. The outside area was pretty and had lots of fans. They brought sanitizer to the table and maintained social distance. We were extremely satisfied with the drinks and food. Definitely will be back!

Was recommended to come here by a friend in Chicago. This is one of those places that you might not find on your own but worth the trip. It’s in a funky little warehouse district with graffiti murals on most of the buildings. The patio is so amazing. The “walls” outside are giant cacti, cool furniture and great bar. The food was outstanding. Blue tortillas made from corn they import from Mexico. They specialize in Mezcal, 100+ different kinds. Unique drinks and food offerings. I am a foodie and I highly recommend this restaurant. Service was awesome as well. We also had a special treat of a hot rod/dune buggy parade down the street. Souped up with cool LED lights, so fun to see!!

very over priced and the food was boring, everything is served with guacamole which is extremely odd when serving king crab and octopus????

Great, authentic food. Loved all the options for our crew's vegetarians. Three different kinds of molé — wow! Our server was ON: attentive, friendly, and super helpful. Fun, funky decor. Beautiful outdoor seating area was *just* comfortable enough mid-day in June. I'd stick to inside for daytime meals for July-Sept. But that's SoFla, not any flaw with Bakan. Can't wait to go back.

Perfect spot for a nice Father’s Day lunch. Food and service were fantastic! The restaurant has tables perfectly set for a safe socially distanced meal. They service staff were masked and brought sanitizer to the table in the event we felt we needed it. Will definitely be making future reservations during this new world way of dining.

Amazing authentic Mexican Food. Tortillas made fresh in an open view kitchen. Cant wait to go back. As a side note they add apx 18% service charge automatically and then the waitress explains that that money goes to the back staff and that we should top her separately. I found that a bit tacky. If 18% isn't enough tip they expect too much.
But overall dont let that stop you from tryin g this great place.

The restaurant is located in a very cool street in Wynwood where there are a lot of other restaurants and bars.
The food was good, really good dishes were the guacamole and the corn which were excellent. Drinks were very good. Portions are very very generous and we had to cancel some of our dishes as we were full after one course already. Outside sitting is very noisy with music and inside very noisy because of bad acoustics which is a shame because if you are having dinner with more than 1 person you cant really have a conversation with anyone apart from people sitting directly next to you. Our waiter was outstanding, extremely helpful, patient and attentive. Overall it is a nice place to visit if you feel like Mexican food and want a loud and lively atmosphere in a cool area of Miami.

So so so so nice. Amazing comfortable romantic outdoor table and so surprising how well the music next door from Brick fits in with the ambiance of the restaurant. Food (short rib tacos) were phenomenal. Waitress was sweet and attentive and had amazing drink recommendations. Hostess wished me a happy birthday which was also very nice. Decor was great and overall cleanliness also very good. Would 10/10 return and 10/10 recommend. Thank you for a very great birthday dinner.

Bakan was one of my most memorable dining experiences to date. Our waiter was well versed in the menu, including the 400+ list of mezcals to pair with your dinner. The food was delicious, ambiance was relaxing and service was incredible
