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.

My wife and I come down to the Playa del Carmen area every year in January. Of course, there are other great restaurants in PDC also, but for quality, service and value for the Peso, you can't beat La Mission. Try one of their Lobster plates and you will be very happy, gastronomically and financially.

We visited the restaurant last night and couldn't have been more pleased. The best lobster and steak around. The seafood dinner was incredible! We commented on how fresh and wonderful the lobster were and were told they get them fresh daily from Cozumel. I think it was the best lobster we've ever eaten in Mexico. Great drinks and for under... More

3 years ago we stumbled into La Mission Restaurant in Playa del Carmen. After spending a fortune for Lobster at supposedly "the best" places for Lobster all over Playa and being sorely disappointed - the La Mission Restaurant find was a God send!! You cannot beat the taste of any meal and especially the Lobster. I guarantee you cannot beat... More

Found this place by accident on here and decided to check it out after reading the reviews, and oh boy are we glad we checked it out! From the greeting at the side-walk to paying the bill, awesome experience. We started with the Shrimp Chevice, great starter. Good size and freshly prepared. Then to our surprise, they brought us a... More

We sat in the garden as a family of 5 and really enjoyed the nice evening. Highly recommend it. It wasn't exactly cheap, but we each had 2 drinks, main courses, soups and some appetizers for about 2,000 pesos ($135) all in. The service was terrific.
