Description: The popular Cozumel Restaurants Casa Mission, La Mission and Parilla Mission have brought their concept to Playa del Carmen. La Mission offers generous portions of seafood, steaks and Mexican specialities at affordable prices. And their "If you don't like it, you don't pay it" slogan is hard to beat. Proof of this is the preference of locals and visitors.

Very good. They even made a special meal for my picky kids of grilled chicken and French fries. Loved the queso for appetizer and chips.

What great food and service we received here! The food kept coming with a complimentary entree and dessert, the waiters appeared to want us to try everything. We were not complaining - just wished we had not eaten lunch as we left with very big bellies, almost unable to walk. We also had some great cocktails, which were huge!

my second visit and the service was fast. the busboys did ALL of the leg work ensuring everything was ok and they both were fantastic! the only dialogue from the waiter was a hello upon taking my order and nothing else when he delivered the check. perhaps he was too busy with his other customers......the bill was $287 and tipped...

After hunting around town for some good local food and trying several restaurants, La Mission by far won out. You can sit inside or on the inside patio, service was fast and courteous, prices were very reasonable, and the food was excellent. Almost everyone had a box of food to take home with them, so not only is the food... More

Our first night back in Playa. Our taxi brought us to La Mission. We had a great time and the food was very fresh and tasty. The line soup, fresh guacamole and pico were amazing. Really the freshest seafood prepared expertly, and I am a chef so I am very hard on restaurants. Wouldn't hesitate to go back. Oh and... More

In Playa, the most expensive meals tend to be the worst. This place is awesome. Delicious food, great service , huge portions. Meal comes with really good lime soup, guacamole, pico, and garlic bread. Had the garlic shrimp and chicken mole and both were excellent. Total for 2 with one drink each was $35 US. Highly recommend.

Let me start by saying we were generally disappointed by the quality of food in Playa as compared to Cabo San Lucas fresh fish. But La Mission was not only tasty and fresh, but abundant AND affordable. 8 of us had appetizers, lime soup( superb), entrees, and drinks for $200 US. The staff bought us 3 flan to share for... More

We really enjoyed this place. The food was great and very good service. The food was plentiful at a very reasonable price.. The only reason I gave it four stars instead on five is the fact that after we arrived I needed to get some bug spray for my ankles. The place is open air and the no-seeums were eating... More
