Romantic dining experience in Playa

This was our most memorable dining experience in Playa. If you want a romantic setting with impeccable service, this is the place to go. The courtyard in the back is so beautiful. They have Amazing food, the best service, and you must try the flaming dessert drink!!

I was in PDC for 10 days and I think I ate here 3-4 times. The chili rellenos were amazing. The atmosphere was so relaxing and this isn't your usual tourist place. I try to avoid the tourist restaurants and eat where the locals and this was amazing. It is noticeable how much better the food is that isn't on... More

Where do you start? Service was impeccable, food absolutely delicious. We travel with younger kids so it is very important to us that we feel we are going to get a great meal and we did. We will be back next year!

However, the service was SO SLOW in 2014 that our friends vowed not to return. in 2015, my wife and I decided to try it again (for... More

I had a steak , the portions for the potatoes & rice were like a small ice cream scoop which wasn't enough for me . I think if you pay good money for food you should not go away hungry.

We appreciate the recommendation form another traveler that led us to La Mission. This restaurant near the bus station in Playa del Carmen is a welcome respite from the bustle and prices on Fifth Street. The service was top notch - an example -- I am allergic to onions, so the waiter brought me plain avocados so I could enjoy... More

La Mission never disappoints. Definitely worth walking a few blocks off 5th avenue for REAL mexican food, and the best Lobster for $23.00. Great service too.

The dinners are also served with a lime soup some guacamole some salsa and chips as well as it bean dip. I have also been... More

Moments after we sat down a complimentary basket of tortilla chips and fresh guacamole and salsa appeared on the table.

We had a great meal! The staff were friendly and the atmosphere is wonderful. Just off Fifth Ave so the prices are much better. Strongly recommend.
