I spent a quick weekend in TJ with my wife & friends, specifically to try dinner here but it is an easy trip from the border and an American can easily go down and back in an evening (though we do have Sentri passes). The setting, in an office building, is modern industrial, but still comfortable. The service was spot... More

So my business partner was down from Canada and heard great things about this restaurant. He mentioned he wanted to try it since he was so close to TJ. I told him that it's a LONG ordeal crossing the border back without SENTRI. (He didn't have Sentri). He wanted to go and no talking him out of it so we... More

Went with the highest expectations and they were met. The food was incredible, the tuna parfait and the local crab. The mescal cart to start was insane. Go for sure!

I was really surprised to discover that Tijuana has a first class restaurant scene that rivals many in the United States. I have visited this restaurant twice. Each time I had to remind myself that I was in Tijuana, not San Francisco or Beverly Hills! Mision 19 has to be one of the best. The ambience is very modern and... More

Great place to dine for something that is more unusual than ordinary fare. Hard to find but worth the effort.

A group of us went to Tijuana for 2 nights to enjoy something different. We saw that Anthony Bourdain recommends this restaurant plus it was tops on TripAdvisor so we decided to go. Food was very good, certainly not a Mexican restaurant in cuisine but delicious food nonetheless. We saved our local fare for taco stands and spent our fine... More

I was wowed by the food but the service was a little slow. I could have been that we had arrived when the doors first opened and they were setting up. But then again the food was awesome.

This ultra modern restaurant fuses contemporary style and cuisine to tradition and art with a French flair. Culminating in a relaxing dining experience. You can explore for yourself or follow the footsteps of Anthony Bourdain and Robert Redford to its close to the border location, a six dollar taxi ride from the TJ / San Diego border. Hidden in a...
