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.

Surf & Turf? Fresh Fish? Amazing Grill!

You might call me a creature of habit; but I would say that I am more like someone with good taste who knows what he wants and is looking for in a vacation dining experience. This is the third year in a row that we ate at La Mission. In fact, we ate there twice this year, the food and... read more

Always amazing and the surf and turf... So much food you can't finish! Filet and Palm size lobster tail with 2 sides and vegetables. I think the only... More

Artfully prepared seafood in garden setting. Food is very good, parking is lousy. Small parking lots nearby, make sure that you ask now late they stay open.

Went into Play del Car for dinner and found the La Mission restaurant to be one of the best places to eat in Playa. We ordered the steak and lobster but the lobster had not arrived to the restaurant for the dinner sitting, it was being shipped from Cozumel. The meal was excellent and price was under twenty five dollars... More

Definite recommended spot for great Mexican food and is off the beaten path so you aren't paying 5th avenue prices. Lovely outside spot in the back

The only negative about this place is the location, across from the ADO bus station. We stumbled upon it, because we were hungry, and they displayed the TripAdvisor logo. Nevertheless, the food and service were fantastic. My wife contends that it was the best margarita in town. The chicken tacos were very filling, and came with a super lime soup.... More

Okay, I wish there was somewhere between average and very good. We went there because it has a pleasant, if somewhat run down, open air patio, and because they offer a three course lobster dinner for $23 US. We shared a shrimp cocktail for $8 US, and while there were ample large sweet shrimp, the sauce tasted more like a... More
