Worth a dinner

We have eaten here on a couple occasions, had the surf and turf, food was good both times and service was good once and not great the second but we still enjoy the place. Only a couple blocks from the plaza

Says right on the front of the menu. Local nationals receive 30% discount. If they did that in the USA, it would be shut down. Food is just okay, even if it is authentic. Not going back; too many good places to eat in Cozumel.

Thank you for visit Parrilla Mission during your vacation in Cozumel. I ask an apology because you felt attacked by the local discount scheme but is a replicate of a success story in USA. A familiar example is the discount that Disney offers to Florida residents in the price of their tickets. The concept of local discount is give back... More

A bit confusing but go to Casa Mission and request to eat at Parilla Mission. When we were there in August the palapa for Parilla Mission was closed and they were using the back part of Casa Mission for Parilla's menu. Delicious! You order your "meat/seafood" and then they have a table with all the condiments to choose from! Everything... More

Walked into this little gem at the suggestion of our taxi driver when our first two choices were closed for the evening. Really enjoyed the atmosphere, staff and food. Started with flavorful and complimentary tortilla soup. The waiter recommended garlic shrimp amd they were very good. We also ordered the surf & turf and were delighted by the quantity amd... More

loved the old location on 30th for inexpensive but good food. The new location is a few blocks further back but very pretty. I got the pastor tacos and my wife got the fish both were very good. The chicken tortilla soup was also very good. The buffet for tacos was very good with a wide selections for toppers on... More

Nice 65 paso breakfast in a great location (old zoo apparently) some exotic caged birds and nice tropical feel. Awful coffee (the usual) but big servings and nice environment. Also does a tequila tour which I only know because I wandered thru an ongoing one on my lost way to the restaurant in the centre. Would go back and ask... More

Decent higher priced taco joint in the old Casa Mission zoo location. The setting is very nice for a tacos place an service is good. However, better tacos can be found nearby.

Found this Restuarant due to the recommendation of a local working in Cartiers. Her recommendation was superb Great atmosphere - we were almost full from the complimentary chips, tacos, dips etc.. We tasted their Mexican platter and also seafood and both were delicious. Mexican band added to the atmosphere for. A small tip. Would fully recommend.

there are two restaurants here, go inside the garden, to the left of the concrete/traditional restaurant and head to the one under the parquet (like a gazebo) and its great service, great food, an half the cost of the sister restaurant. I had garlic shrimp with rice, beans and condiments and my wife has shish kebobs, we had sangia and... More

We went to Parrilla Mission for dinner during our Spring Break visit to Cozumel. It was a fun meal with family - good food and good drinks. There is a mariachi band for the tourist, nice appetizers, good food (but my garlic fish was a little bland), and tasty drinks. We did not order the sexy coffee but it is... More
