Less than a year since its opening, BACÁN has become one of Orlando’s most distinguished culinary experiences. Nestled within Lake Nona Wave Hotel, the Michelin-recommended restaurant offers an upscale yet approachable dining journey influenced by the ingredients and techniques of Central and South American cuisine.


At the helm is Chef Guillaume Robin, originally from northwestern France and whose culinary prowess comes from spending nearly two decades in Michelin-starred kitchens and 4- and 5-star hotels across the U.S. and Europe. Chef Robin and his team have created a sophisticated menu with dishes including traditionally cooked Branzino a la Plancha and Whole Truffle Chicken Two Ways that is a result of brining chicken overnight, cooking in truffle butter for six hours and roasting in a rotisserie before frying a portion of the chicken to offer the dish in two ways: roasted and fried.

In time for fall, BACÁN has unveiled new dishes featuring seasonal ingredients including Stuffed Squash Blossom, made with chorizo, pickled pearl onions, and ancho buttermilk; Ora King Salmon Crudo, made with lemongrass sesame, tamarind burn pear, shiso oil, and tobiko; and Duck Breast, with mole, beet gel, roasted baby beet, parsnip and heirloom bean salsita. A highlight is sure to be the new tasting menu featuring five chef-selected courses and accompanying wine pairings.

“It has been so rewarding to see our team’s hard work recognized by the local community and visitors alike,” Chef Guillaume Robin said. “Getting the opportunity to introduce new dishes and innovative experiences that enhance the overall experience at BACÁN and Wave has been exciting, and we look forward to what’s in store for 2023.”


Full of energy and personality, the dramatic space boasts a bold open-kitchen, dozens of gold lanterns above jewel-toned seating, and gallery-worthy artwork and stunning outdoor patio overlooking the Lake Nona Sculpture Garden featuring famous sculptures from Henri Moore to local artist JEFRË. The restaurant also offers an eclectic wine list with more than 60 selections – from Orlando varietals to blends from Mexico, Greece, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
