We visit Cozumel quite often and this restaurant always makes our list of places to eat. I always have the same thing as well...Red Snapper (when it's in season). Always grilled to perfection and usually large size as well. The wife usually gets the coconut shrimp (and they are usually quite large) Lime soup is always brought to the table... More

After reading the reviews, I decided on this place for my last dinner in Mexico before going back to the US. In particular, I wanted to eat my favorite dish, mole poblano, and saw that other reviewers had it here. When I arrived, the restaurant was empty - and I should have known better. I told the head waiter about... More

If you are looking for tasty food, a quiet Mexican ambiance, friendly servers (that speak English) and a medium priced meal, then look no further. My wife ordered a delicious fish dinner, but I can't remember the name of it. I had garlic shrimp. We did not order appetizers. We were served garlic bread, salsa and chips, prior to our... More

It was a recommendation from a local. We order Coconut Shrimp (served in a coconut), seafood ceviche (fresh fish and shrimp) and Mole Chicken. We loved it all! You can really taste the coconut in the shrimp and it was freshly fried. The ceviche was so good with the fresh herbs and lime juice. The Mole chicken was different than... More

Visited in August with a large group while on vacation. While everything on the menu was awesome, the Seafood platter was the most popular choice. The alcoholic beverages were also excellent. The food is prepared right in the dining area and is a nice treat. I would advise dressing lightly, as the room (even with fans) can get a little... More

Good food. Nice decor. Recommended by my entire family. The only strange dish was the Shrimp Cocktail which was served on a plate. We went there on a recommendation from a local and were not disappointed.

We were in search for seafood and stumbled upon this place. The area is open so you're not enclosed in a restaurant (feels amazing at night). Staff spoke English so it was easy to communicate. Dishes come with a soup and dessert at the end. Was surprised as to how good everything was. Will definitely be back.

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.
