Powered by AI

Casa Mission Restaurant is celebrated for its authentic and flavorful Mexican cuisine, with many guests particularly enjoying the lobster tail and tableside preparations. While the service generally receives accolades for being friendly and accommodating, a handful of visitors have felt overlooked or pressed for time. The vibrant atmosphere, enhanced by live mariachi bands, is a consistent favorite, contributing to the restaurant's charm and authenticity. Although the ambiance is widely praised, some diners have noted occasional inconsistencies with service and have been confused by the pricing.

Everyone about this place was a pleasant surprise. We were on Cozumel to dive and found most of the neighborhood where we were staying (near the ferry terminal) very tacky and unpleasant. Someone in the dive shop recommended Casa Mission to us for a special dining experience. The food, atmosphere, service and price was exceptional. You are given freshly made guacamole (made at your table) while waiting for the meal, at no extra charge. Then a small, delicious bowl of sopa de Lima, also no charge as it comes with your entree. I had the chicken fajitas and my husband had a baked fish special. Both meals were excellent. The service is attentive but not intrusive. The exchange rate was very favorable when we went in early March but still, the price with trip seemed incredibly inexpensive. Set in a beautiful garden, just beautiful!

Let me just say... I'm a food snob. Most places wouldn't even get a second visit! Casa Mission surpassed my expectations! it was just by the weather of the evening that I ended up at this wonderful restaurant. It started raining as I walked out the door to stroll around town and find dinner, I flagged down a taxi cab and told him that I wanted a really good dinner. This is where he brought me. Didn't catch his name, but thank you taxi driver! Guacamole, Pico, and Cesar Salad made table side. I had surf and turf, which was delicious. I usually don't order it out, because not many people can cook lobster or steak correctly. Everything about this restaurant, the ambiance, the staff, & the food were all amazing. Wanted to visit again before my departure, but didn't get the chance. I will be back. Thank you for being amazing!

This was a short cab ride from our hotel, and you walk through a lovely well lit garden to the restaurant which is old school Spanish at its heart. The staff are polite and fast to assist. Food was superb, but for the person who normally consumes a small meal, be prepared to share because portions are large. The drinks are strong and excellent. Mariachis will entertain you and play your requests if you wish. I had only one less desirable experience with a young waiter who pressed very hard for us to order more drinks, but he was probably just enthusiastic for us to try the house specialty. He will do well with being persistent! All in all a must to enjoy if you can afford to eat there, in a grande old Spanish setting.

Hola MadMarc, Thank you so much for your visit. Indeed we are proud of our venue and we invest a lot of time and effort in taking care of our gardens. We also take the time to train our staff to be polite and helpful to our guests. I am also so sorry you had a bad experience with one of our waitress. We will speak to all of them to make sure they are not too pushy. He most certainly was excited to prepare you one of our Sexy Coffee, which is our flagship dessert and its preparation is such a show and fun! Thank you so much for your review. We hope to see you again soon and hopefully you will try our sexy coffee. Thank you.

A beautiful restaurant set in a beautiful garden setting..Old and family owned, Casa Mission is arguably THE BEST restaurant in Cozumel. Excellent seafood, beef, and other delectables are combined with great service and drinks in a safe neighborhood. The prices are way lower than you would expect at 70 dollars for lobster and shrimp parilla for two, drinks and dessert. Don’t forget to tip the three man Mariachi band.

Hola, ChipGoodhart. Thank you so much for such a nice review. Indeed, our prices are fare and you can enjoy from our beautiful gardens, old-hacienda-Mexican-style venue, our great service, our delicious dishes and our live music trio. Our king crab, cesar salad and sexy coffee are also great. Thank you so much and we hope to see you again soon.

The place is pleasant, and really old school. If you want to go back in time its kind of fun. But, do not go here if you are looking for food, drink or atmosphere with character. My Margarita was the first sign things would be rough. Clearly right out of a mix bottle. The menu looks like it is from a retirement home, and when the food arrived, it was so bland looking we were pretty convinced the whole thing came from the local Costco. Really, who goes all the way to Cozumel to eat plain white rice and a veggie mix from a bag? It isnt fun to rip on places, but people should be aware this is as far from either good or authentic food as you can get. I have had better meals in a hospital.

Hi, Longfisher. I have thoroughly read your review and I want to thank you for it, though it was tough and even painful to read it -because we do our best to strive to offer our guests the best food, service and venue- it will help us keep growing. In our weekly meeting, I will speak your concerns about the food with our main chef and I will also hire mistery shoppers for my place several times in the next months. Finally, there is no Costco in Cozumel, there is not even a WalMart like you would find in any other Mexican or American city. We do our very best to get the best quality of foods we can on the island and some of them we have to import them to the island from several places in Mexico. I am glad that at least you recognized the quality of our service and though it did not seemed to be the kind of venue you would enjoy, I appreciate you did not spoke badly about the home of my parents, where I grew up. Thank you for your visit. Sincerely, Fabiola Miranda.

We went on a tour of the island with Safe Tours Cozumel. As part of the tour the guide took us into San Miguel to have our lunch, before heading back out on the tour. This was an old Hacienda that was converted a number of years ago. We had the soup and the flank steak with potatoes and vegetables. I am not a lover of flank steak, however, the meal we were served was delicious. Was it enough to fill us up. Absolutely. The noon hour is their supper hour and they make sure you don’t need anything later that day. The waiters were friendly, helpful and very courteous. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Beautiful location with great food. I personably get surf and turf with double lobster. They are both amazing. We heard about ordering crab the day before your visit and we did it. It was an entire crab cooked wonderfully for around 600 pesos. My wife said it was the best she ever had. Service is always great. We ended with the sexy coffee which alone is just fun to watch.

Hola CSpiller! You practically followed the suggestions I usually give to our guests: try the Surf & Turf or the King Crab and have a Sexy Coffee as dessert. Thank you so much for choosing us and for taking the time to write this review. It motivates us to keep with the good work. Thank you!

We always visit Casa Mission for dinner one night when we’re in Cozumel. This year we were here with another family to celebrate our daughters’ 10th birthdays (they have the same one). I called ahead and Casa Mission did the rest. They welcomed us with a birthday sign and a piñata. We all celebrated with a fabulous chocolate cake for dessert. Of course the food was great as always. We had lobster, stone crab, seafood platter, grilled fish, steak and shrimp. We especially love the table side pico and guacamole presentation and the lime soup with bread starters. Thanks for making their day special!

While the grounds and environment are pleasing, this a tourist trap. From the moment you enter the establisment the first encounter is with restaurant vendors nagging you to buy souvenirs and knock off Gucci bags. While the mageritas were pretty good, the food was mediocre at best. My wife ordered the Caesar salad and without exaggeration was served 4 romain leaves. I ordered the chicken Kiev and was served an oversized chicken finger with garlic and parsley omitted. The service also was hurried and totally impersonal. This restraunt caters to large tourist groups and the individual diners are at best secondary. There are far better restraunts in San Miguel like Panchos Backyard and La Choza to enjoy good Mexican food and respectful service. I end this review by saying I am a local and will not be returning.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write and describe all the mistakes we made in serving you and welcoming you at Casa Mission. For 45 years we have been constantly improving. I will review personally so that you do not feel like you are in a total tourist trap again on your next visit. My friends from La choza ( pasta soup) and Panchos Backyad (margarita pie) are very good options for mexicans food too. I am agree with your recomendation.

An absolute must-visit when we're in town. The food is always so delicious and the ambiance of the grounds is just simply wonderful. My friends met my family and me for a Sunday dinner and it was wonderful as always. My husband enjoyed his steak and lobster, my daughter loved the lobster salad and I thoroughly enjoyed the coconut shrimp. Our guests ordered steaks and were raving about them! For dessert, we ordered sexy coffee...and my goodness it did not disappoint. Jacob was so much fun during our "mini" show. We can't wait to come back!!

This beautiful hacienda has been transformed into an elegant Mexican dining experience. Gorgeous grounds and decor. This was our first time and we had no idea what to expect. We were made so welcome and the food was fabulous. After we ordered, they made guacamole fresh at our table and then made the pico de gallo. The steak Tampico was delicious, tender and full of flavor. A typical mexican dish. For dessert we had Spanish coffee. Its brandy , coffee, ice cream and flaming liquores poured over the top. This they made at the table, too, dimming the lights to get the best effect! The cost was very reasonable, about $60 USD for drinks, dinner, dessert and tips.

We came with a group of seven including kids and teenagers and had a great experience! The food was amazing and the service was great. Even though we live in Houston and have seen mariachi bands many times, we really enjoyed the two bands that were circulating around the restaurant. Outside, there was a vendor selling "Mexican things" and he was super nice with the youngest of the group! The adults did a Tequila tasting and bought some tequila. I should mention that the margaritas were strong -- in a good way! They served them with bamboo straws. This is not a budget restaurant but it was well worth eating delicious food and having a fun Mexican evening! Highly recommend.

This place is beautiful!! This is a must on the island. I gave only 4 stars because I felt like we were treated differently than the other guests. After ordering our food we realized all the other guests were given lunch menus and juice glasses that the waiters kept refilling which must have been included w the lunch. My husband asked to try it and the waiter was hesitant because we had the other type of glass on our table but he did and refilled it for him with no problem. We were in the mood for a lighter fare. My husband had the ceaser salad and I had the cevich, both were very good. We came here because we had such a great experience at La Mission and they are i believe owned by the same family/company. Someone had recommend we try the sexy coffee...so we did. Its under dessert on the menu but what we got was not what we expected! It was very delicious though.

reading your comment makes me feel sad and happy at the same time. We have different schedules for breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. But if the customer who entered for lunch is still sitting in the dining room when we are already at dinner time, we continue to serve him the menu he requested, when he enter to the restaurant I'm sorry for the feeling that the time change caused you. hope to see you soon and change the experience
