Not to be missed! If you live or visit Tijuana make it a point to have lunch or dinner at Missión 19 Very creative Bajamed cuisine under the direction of Javi Plascencia, one of the initiators of this movement. Excelent drinks too

This is one of the top high scale restaurants in the area and you need to be prepared to pay for its value, with excellent service and great food. The variety of local wines is amazing. Great evening atmosphere and very good for business lunch meetings. I had a great weekend food and wine evening at this place with some... More

I have now enjoyed 2 visits to this excellent restaurant. Creative food done right. Possibly the only downside is they are very popular now and you probaply need to make a reservation. This last trip was last minute and they were full. They do have a bar area upstairs that they escorted us to and is quite nice and you... More

My boyfriend wanted to have his birthday lunch here. The food was excellent--steak, fish, salad, cold beers on a warm day. The service was excellent and atmosphere relaxing. The architecture of the building is a work of art.

Had a great dinner at Mision 19. Local wines by the glass, delicious appetizers ( we had grilled oysters and tuna tartare) and inventive and satisfying entrees. Hubby had duck and I had catch of the day, which was grouper. They have English-language menus if needed . Before-dinner cocktails were good, but we kicked ourselves that we didn't have fine...

What an experience not only crossing over by foot and navigating the locals but finding such a gem tucked away on a street... More

Nice to see Tijuana developing a superior culinary experience. World class restaurant. Really enjoyed the local food and wine, and the bread plate was the best I've seen. If only crossing back into the US wasn't such a hassle.
