My wife and i were in search of a delicious lobster dinner and we hit the jackpot. La Mission is a cozy, fairly large open air restaurant just off the main drag in down town San Miguel. They typically have live, culturally appropriate music ranging...More

My husband and I went to this restaurant it was recommended to us years ago. The trip advisor sign was out front. The service was a little slow but we were in no hurry. We both ordered Mexican food...absolutely the worst we have ever had.

We had two people recommend this restraint. This was quite possibly the worst "Mexican" food of my life. Caters to gringos/cruise tourists, I guess. We sent back two dishes. The service was also not good. Maybe we caught them on a bad day?

This is the only restaurant we visited during our one day in Cozumel. We were really looking forward to great authentic Mexican cuisine and were disappointed. The service was very slow, the whole sampler platter was very overcooked and not very flavorful. We did have...More

I guess I'm a little spoiled by the availability of good Mexican food where I live in the States. The food was good, but nothing different from what I'm already used to and very similar to the restaurants of similar region near me. The highlight...More

Sorry to say that I can't recommend this restaurant. Grilled fish was white frozen piece with frozen veggies. Waiters and chefs are not motivated even there where less guests in restaurant. Spend less money on better food 2 streets south at beachside.
