We came here for lunch when they just opened. I think being here for dinner is more romantic with all the lights turned on. We ordered two dishes. The first dish - nachos with chicken - was really really good. We ordered grilled lobster as well as the pictures on Tripadviser were quite good. It took a while to come... More

Mixed or fish ceviche, lime soup, tortilla soup, flan, flaming dessert... YUM! We have never had anything that we didn't enjoy here. Service... More

We walked from our villa in Playacar to La Mission the first day of our Thanksgiving vacation to have lunch - it was awesome! The waiter was very attentive and helpful in making selections. We all LOVED the shrimp and avacado appetizer and the grilled fish fillet was a huge hit! Two of us shared the seafood platter with lobster,... More

This restaurant used to have very good service and excellent arrachera. No more. The quality of the meat is terrible. Not sure if the beef was genuinely beef. Avoid. Do not pass go!

Had lunch at La Mission today. The service was excellent and the meals a great value. We had a large serving of chips and salsa/guacamole, followed by a bowl of lime soup, which was large and delicious. These items were on the house! A large appetizer of shrimp ceviche was next and was plenty for two. Beef and chicken entrees... More

We visit this restaurant every time we are in town. We always enjoy the food. The entree comes with a Great Chicken Lime Soup. There is so much food we never have room for desert.

Just off the main street, this place is a must if your in player. The staff were awesome as we didn't speak a lot of spanish and the food was even better. Everything we ordered of the menu was fresh, tasty and what your looking for in Mexico. We had to go back the next night it was sooo good

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.
