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.

“Great Lobster!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Place was empty when we arrived, but we'd heard good things, so took the chance; good margaritas, free chips, salsa, and guacamole, attentive service. I had Surf and Turf; Lobster was great, would skip the steak; tough and overdone. My wife had the Chili Rellenos, which she really liked, and she's particular. I'd go back again, but skip the beef.

“Awesome food and service!!!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We had an awesome experience there! We had gone fishing earlier in the day and brought some filets back with us. We asked around for any restaurants that would cook them for us and someone recommended La Mission. We were very satisfied with the recommendation! From the salsa, to the soup, to the ceviche, to the staff - it was all exceptional! The restaurant is quaint and uniquely decorated! Great experience! :)

“Excellente”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

We had a little trouble finding this restaurant, but it was well worth the effort. The staff was so nice and very attentive. The food was awesome as well as the drinks. We got to try Lime Soup which is a local favorite and it was awesome.

“Excellent food, service and prices!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Small streetside restaurant, nicely decorated, quaint and personal. Excellent staff, food quality was much better than ANY other restaurant we visited in Playa Del Carmen, Cancun or Cozumel during our entire vacation. We ate lunch at various restaurants during the day while sight-seeing or scuba diving (Cozumel), but they were never close to the quality and value for price that La Mission offered ... out of a week's stay, we ate dinner at La Mission 4 nights!

Highly recommended:
Surf & Turf plate is highly recommened (lobster and filet mignon, baked potato, rice & veggies)
Seafood Special (flounder, shrimp, lobster, baked potato, rice & veggies)
Lime soup
Garlic Toast (hand rubbed with garlic!)
Guacamole' Salsa and Pico de Gallo with Tortilla chips
