“New location has hurt their business”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Their old location is torn down. They moved to a new location about 4 or 5 blocks away. The food is always good to average. Our Margaritias were watered down and could not taste any liquor. Service was good. We sat in the second floor and looked over the new large very nice shopping mall. I/we agree with another reviewer that the loud mexican band was a little over the top, of course when they stopped playing or moved to another area they would come by and want a tip. No Bueno.

“YUM!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Recommended to us by the locals, this was NOT a disappointment! Authentic Mexican cuisine at an affordable price with LIVE entertainment from a Mariachi band! Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for good eats!

“Best Food and Service in Playa del Carmen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We were walking on 5th ave when a tour guide (Miguel) cornered us wanting to know what we wanted to do attraction wise. It was lunch time, we were starving and we didn't wanted to get raped on 5th ave for mediocre food. Miguel took us just a few blocks down to this amazing restaurant - La Mission. We were greeted & seated immediately. Our host was and exceptional gentlemen, the service couldn't have been better. This was one of those places you know is going to be good when you walk in and there is no "backroom" kitchen or bar. Everything is right on the dining room floor. The food came quickly and we were served a four course meal which included complementary chips, salsa and fresh made guacamole, chicken tortilla soup appetizer, our main course (which was unbelievably low priced - surf & turf for $23!) and flan desert. We ended up eating here several more times on our week-long stay and probably missed out on other great spots because of the wonderful food and service. This is a MUST GO!!! Thanks you La Mission

“Nice place with tasty food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Visited La Parilla for dinner and the food was excellent. We tried Mexican grill with Guacamole and both were perfect. We also enjoyed XL Margarita and some lemonade. Overall impression was spoiled a bit by loud Mexican band, coming suddenly for their performance. I don't personally like such type of entertainment as I prefer eating without loud intrusion. Though it's a matter of taste. There were couple of kids at the next table who enjoyed it and started dancing. At the end the waiter included someone's beer into our bill by mistake, though it was quickly resolved. In general very nice place and if we stayed at Playa del Carmen longer would certainly come back. Thanks.

“Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

They moved since our last visit, but still the same awesome food and service! We has a mixed grill some queso fundido, and nachos. All of it was tasty, and served up hot! Had a few drinks, and enjoyed the sights and sounds of PDC. It was our second visit, and hopefully won't be our last!
