Good food, good beer

If you a dying for an ice cold beer in Loreto, try out this craft brew place. Good beer, fair cost and the sea food was great.

Some of the food (fresh fish) was excellent; some (chili rellenos in puff pastry) was overdone and not tasty. The appetizers came out AFTER the pizzas and main dishes, so our kids didn't eat much of them and they went to waste. One of our kids felt sick after eating the tortilla soup. I was willing to give them another... More

Just great the beer handcrafted, plates ok but I think prices are to high from what you get... Its more a bar with good food than a restaurant.

This restaurant is right in town and should be on your list of places to eat. The owner is around to talk with you and recommend dishes. On a recent visit, I had a wonderful time and the food was delicious.

As a regular visitor from the US to Loreto, I can confirm that 1697 is the only restaurant in town with a selection of authentic craft Mexican beers. The prices are a little higher than at other restaurants in the town, but when you've had your fill of Tecate and Negra's, then this is the place to imbibe. The food... More

Some of the recent reviews have been doggin' the place but we tried it as it was nearby and looked inviting. Nice ambiance and location on the central square. My companion loved her salad and we had pizzas which were very good. Beer good too as all will attest. Definitely worth going and giving it a try.

We went here with 2 couples. The food was great, the salads were very good, which is so refreshing in Baja! The beers are great, we tried a couple of them and they were good. Definitely different to get good American beers down here. We enjoyed this restaurant, we'll be back.

This little restaurant is right ON the historic Loreto square and is a great place to rest and watch other visitors to the square or listen to the music of traveling musicians. The beer is brewed for the restaurant and was very good, My dinner was well presented and quite delicious and reasonably priced.

We used to go to 1697 when it was just a restaurant before it became a beer pub. The food was always very good. Now the owners craft their own beer and the beer is excellent!! I especially like the stout! On the other hand the food has taken a fall. I totally understand for a couple to run a... More
