Enjoyed

We ate in this restaurant twice. There is a good selection on the menu. For lunch I had a fantastic hamburger with Mexican flavours. Try the clams in garlic sauce they are a speciality of the area. There is also a good selection of craft beers and they make a good Margarita. We found the staff to... read more

Enjoyed everything I ate here, from the clams in garlic to the chowder, empanadas to chicken Caesar and more - very tasty and a great corner right on the square with its own craft brewery!

We were tired of seafood so decided to find a place for burgers, American style. Ordered the Luxury Burger with blue cheese and bacon on a homemade bun. Actually could have been a good burger had the bread been made properly and larger pieces of bacon really would have been nice. From my baking experience looked like they didn't kneed... More

The service was surly and the food terrible. We had gone because we had seen there lunch menu and there were some good sounding burgers. Unfortunately in the evening they don't have them on the menu. I had flank steak which was fatty, tough and tasteless. It came with a side of beans that at best came straight from the... More

The beer brewed on site was excellent. We especially liked the Bandido Black, a stout, it was fantastic! We stopped for their guacamole and beer multiple times during our week stay. Santiago gave us excellent service and was excellent at suggesting things to do and places to visit, even other restaurants to try.

1697 Restaurant and El Zopilote Brewing Company. While on a day visit to Loreto from a cruise ship, we found this delightful little restaurant and brewery tucked away in the far corner of the main town square and decided to stop for lunch. Generally, finding draught beers in Mexico is rare, let alone micro brews. Being beer connoisseurs, we of... More

1697 is one of our favorite restaurants in Loreto. The Irish owner, Kieran, brews wonderful beer which, for any beer lover, is reason enough for a visit.

Everything was closed all around Loreto for low season. We drove around and ended up in 1697 Restaurant. Good service, very good food, fair price. Have to try the scallops. Good pizza and pretty decent porter beer.

Have been many times. Quick walk from our house. Very nice atmosphere, great service and excellent food. The pizza is amazing. Kieran brews his own beer and brings in a few other micros from down south. Wine list, full bar and national beers as well. Go!
