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.

“Worth a try”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Our meal was good, nothing special. The starters, guacamole and lime soup are outstanding. My friend had a chicken dish and it was all dark meat, no flavor unless swiped in the sauce. I had the shrimp and it was good. Service was very good and everyone was very nice. Very good prices probably due to being off 5th. ave.

“Wanted to Give a Better Review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

The atmosphere of the restaurant is really cool and the food was actually pretty good. We got the Mexican platter. All meals come with lime soup and guacamole (both were fantastic). We were the only table in there for most of our stay; however, our service was not good. We felt ignored. There were PLENTY of servers there, too.

“Sexy Coffee , steak and lobster”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

This year we tried a new restaurant- La Mission- a little off the beaten path but well worth it !!! The steak and lobster dinner was cheaper than any of those offered on La Avenida Quinta (5th Avenue) but worth the walk. The dinner was large enough for my husband and me to share. After dinner try the Sexy Coffee- not only is it delicious but an experience to watch ! When the senor stood on the chair to pour the flaming coffee- OH MY !!!!!
