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.

It is a little off 5th avenue but worth the walk. I had the Mission shrimp that came on a platter. Hugh shrimp wrapped in bacon on top of onion ring and rice, could not finish. Hubby had the Tampico tampequena (skirt steak, marinated the Best ever). Ate at the La Mission in Cozumel also and had the Lobster for... More

What a nice surprise on Avenida 10! The restaurant is much bigger than it first looks from outside, clean, very nicely decorated, complete with seats outside in an interior courtyard. The waiter seemed very happy to be there and the service was fast and courteous. The food was delicious, I can recommend the Lime Soup and the Pollo en Molle... More

Our 3rd visit to this little restaurant, and I can't say enough. On our last visit our party of 4 had the coconut shrimp (sauce was a little weird, lime and coconut) but the shrimp was delicious, I had the chicken mole, YUM, and my husband had the chili relleno, also very good. Being the foodie that I am, I... More

Our family of 4 ate here on our trip to Playa Del Carmen. The staff was extremely polite and accommodating and the food was superb! The seafood was amazing and our Margaritas were perfect. Will definitely return on our next trip to PDC.

The kitchen facilties are in view of most of the restaraunt seating, so you can watch the cooks at work. The restaurant has... More

Back in Dec. of 2011 a taxi driver brought us here, saying the Mexican food was really good and the prices were reasonable. He was right. Since then we sought this restaurant out during our next three trips to Playa del Carmen. It's located in the block behind the bus station (the latter of which faces the pedestrian walk). During...
