Casa Mission Review
Part private home and part restaurant (and owned by the same family since the 1980s), this somewhat dated estate evokes a country hacienda in mainland Mexico. The on-site botanical garden has mango and papaya trees and a small zoo with caged birds. The setting, with tables lining the veranda, outshines the food, which caters to the tourist palate. Nonetheless, stalwart fans rave about huge platters of fajitas and grilled fish. It's a few blocks from the waterfront, so you may want to take a cab. Or, visit one of their two more-central sister restaurants, La Mission and Parilla Mission.
