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.

My friends made a point to stopping here for the signature dish of wrapped chili rellenos. Great dish!

Looking for a really good microbrew? How about a romantic night out? 1697 is the place. Right on the historic plaza, 1697 is the home of Zopalote Brewing, Loreto's only microbrewery. The menu is as varied Loreto.

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.
