While on vacation in Scottsdale Arizona I took my wife there for lunch on the first day there. It had been highly recommended by a friend that has retired there. It was excellent and memorable enough that we went back for dinner before we left

I am really late in writing this since we were there in July. However, I still think about how good the food was at this restaurant! The service was great. It was a little dark, but I thought the ambience was wonderful. The duck empanadas were to die for. We did not get the guacamole, and I regret that! The Bread pudding was also a real treat. I highly recommend this restsurant to anyone who likes upscale Mexican in a unique setting!

A must visit every time we are in Scottsdale. The atmosphere and ambiance are perfect for a night out. Service has always been amazing and you must start off with the table side guac - all in! The roast corn gordita and crispy cola pork were other favourites. Do make reservations if going on a weekend as it can get very busy. Try it out - you will not be disappointed.

It is hard to find good empanadas and the Mission delivers with their duck empanadas! They were so good I should have ordered it for main course too on top of what we had as a shared starter.

Loved the guac as an appetizer too. I had the mushrooms for main course and it was okay, my colleague had ribs which he enjoyed.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere and I liked the spanish/mexican styling inside. Restaurant was packed on a Tuesday eve.

will go back again

The table made guacamole was wonderful and was bread pudding dessert. The halibut was a little dry. It is very dark inside so bring a little flashlite
