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.

This was our 2nd visit to La Mission. The enchiladas are just wonderful. The tacos both beef and chicken are not what you get in the USA—no cheese, no sour cream. Just fresh salsa and guacamole on homemade corn tortillas. Service a little slow (when...More

Family went there twice for the week, once for lunch, later for dinner. Super good shrimp that are huge and yummy! Also tried there fajitas and Mexican combination plater. Great family atmosphere and close to shopping and a nice walk along the water afterward.
