We asked one of the shop keepers his recommendation for a great Mexican food resterant. He walked us down the street to La Mssion. An open air resterant under a palapa with a nice out side patio in the back. Julian, our waiter was very personable and provided excellent service. I had a shrimp cocktail that was off the charts...

This is always the highlight of our food experience when we come here. If we don't I regret it till we get back. I had the lobster and my husband had the surf and turf both excellent. It came with delicious lime soup and ended with coconut ice cream. Staff so appreciative of us. Made us feel special. Margaritas were... More

We first dined at La Mission 2 years ago on a family vacation. We all enjoyed it so much we went twice that trip. My wife and I went back to Playa again this year and went to La Mission the first day for a late lunch of quacamole, fish tacos, and cervesa. Same great food, great service, and reasonable... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by acquaintances.who told us it was their favourite eating spot in Playa del Carmen. Am not sure if it was because it was later in the evening and the restaurant was not Busy but our meal included soup and dessert at N/C. I had the chicken fajitas which was good and my wife had...

Very good prices and service. Food was very good although I could have used more vegetables. That seemed typical for Mexico but I would certainly go to La Mission again.

This is one of our favorite places to eat dinner in Playa. It certainly is the best food for the money. You can't beat surf and turf for less than $20. My husband said the steak was very tender and the lobster very large and served with garlic butter or plain butter. My fish fillets were very generous. I had... More

Went there to have breakfast like two weeks ago. Chose the place because of the great reviews. It turned out to be a complete disappointment. Orange juice was not natural, coffee was just Nescafe powder coffee, ingredients felt cheap and the food was just average. Even worse was the service. The guy seemed to be just "gone" in his mind....as... More

So, let me preface this by saying that this restaurant was part of deal we go with our tour through Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. From the moment we arrived, we noted that our tour and the restaurant had not communicated that we were coming. Our tour only consisted of less than 10 people. Now, I can understand the confusion...

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.
