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.

Lobster & Chile Rellenos

Great lobster at a reasonable price. They also have a very tasty Chile Rellenos - I haven't had one this good since my days in Juarez 40 years ago. The lime soup that is included with the dinner is also very tasty. Try the shrimp cocktail, if you like it in a slightly sweet red salsa. Mario... read more

We asked one of the street vendors we did business with a good place he would take his family to dinner and he quickly mentioned La Mission. And we're glad he did!

We visited this restaurant 2 years ago and really enjoyed the variety of food here. We came back because it is such good food at such reasonable prices. The coconut shrimp have a dipping sauce like no other. It is a sweet and minty sauce that is so good! The restaurant is small and has a nice outdoor space in... More

This is one of favorite places to eat while in Playa. The food is always great and the price is even better for what you receive. The staff is always friendly and the service is fast.

Any time we are in Playa del Carmen - we make La Mission Restaurant our first priority. You will never have better Lobster at any price and the price here is EXTREMELY reasonable. For non-Lobster eaters, everything we have had or our guests have had on their menu has been perfect with the best taste. Just one block off 5th... More

We'd heard of La Mission, and stopped in for a late lunch / early dinner. The food and service were both outstanding.... And for the price! The Guacamole starter was perfect.... 3 of us had Langosta (lobster), and Coconut Shrimp. Each plate (platter!) Was served first with Lime Soup.... Terrific! The lobster was cooked perfectly, with very good mixed vegetables... More

Service top notch from start to finish. Drinks great without being overly strong. Shrimp cocktail best ever. Lime soup to die for. Seafood platter hit all the right notes and coconut shrimp delectable. With the Canadian dollar being in the tank we had a wonderful meal without breaking the bank. Thumbs way up.
