Not to be confused with La Mission in downtown San Miguel. We happened upon this restaurant by chance but it quickly became our favorite. We came back three more times for a total of 8 individual meals. Seven of these were fantastic, and the other was quite acceptable, especially when the price is considered. The beef and chicken were always good with ample portions. The side buffet complements the meals if you have a large appetite. Prices are 30 to 60 percent cheaper than downtown and the atmosphere is local, and fun with plenty of families always in attendance.
The only drawback was the service. Give the previous reviews which compliemented the service, I'm at a loss to explain this. Other than the evening when Fernando was our waiter (he was a hoot and kept us well served and well amused), we were often ignored for long periods. Most evenings we had to ask for dishes to use the buffet. On what was to be our 5th visit in 6 days, we waited for 5 minutes for a waiter to acknowledge our presence, and finally walked out. If you can put up with indifferent service, and want great food at terrify prices, it’s a great place to visit.

This is a very good restaurant in the shopping area of Playa del Carmen known as "5th Avenue." It is fairly priced, locally owned, and the service is excellent. I had a gigantic lobster tail and my husband had a surf and turf. The bill was under $50, and the food was cooked perfectly.

This restaurant if one of our favorites in Cozumel !!! We winter here and it is a regular stop for dinner once or twice a week. The wait staff is also polite and prompt and Emilia the head waitress is a wonderful lady and always glad to see us when we walk into Parrilla. The menu has a nice assortment of selections and the value is VERY good. We highly recommend it...!!

Our group of 8 were in Cozumel a week and by far this was the best dining experience that we had. We enjoyed fajitas, chili relleno and steaks. The free salsa bar and hot side dish buffet was excellent. My wife and I had 2 drinks, a ny strip steak (so tender I could cut with a fork) chicken fajitas (massive portion) and 2 desserts (coconut ice cream-delicious!) for $18 US Dollars. We just could not believe how delicious and affordable the meals were. Add to that the fabulous and attentive wait staff and Parrilla Mission is the best dining experience in Cozumel.
