Friendly service and good food

We liked the situation of this restaurant - at the corner of the square - and eating out of doors. The food was good and the service was efficient and friendly - as was the owner when he stopped to pass the time of day with us.

While staying in Loreto, we ate here and the food was excellent. I got the Red Pepper Cream Pasta and it was wonderful. My husband is all about beer and enjoyed the micro brews. Loved sitting outside on the square and watching the people and Christmas lights. Would definitely eat here again!

Very friendly owners serving very inexpensive food and great beer (especially their own IPA - Rattlesnake). The fish tacos are probably the best we had on this trip to Mexico . The total bill for fish tacos, great nachos with very good quacamole, beers for me and margaritas for the 4 of us with a good tip was a very... More

1697 Restaurant owners Kieran and Norma have added to their already excellent restaurant a Micro Brewery called Zopilote. They serve excellent pub food with specials each day. The brews are now locally created and served fresh. The Blond is good (just not my favorite type), but the IPA and Stout are excellent from my viewpoint

We were tired of Pacifico and similar Mexican light beers. Imagine our pleasure to find a location in Loreto that brews craft beer. They have a pale ale, a stout and our favorite, Rattlesnake IPA. Right on the plaza, it is definitely worth a stop Unfortunately we did not have a chance to eat a meal, but the chips and... More

For starters, 1967 Restaurant is easily distinguishable by its unique name (though it is not named this way for no reason, as this was the year that Loreto was established-the first settlement in Baja California Sur as a matter of fact). The location is one of my favourite things about this restaurant, tucked away in a nice little square in... More

My wife and I had dinner at 1697 the other night and it was fantastic. We had read the menu but honestly when I saw that they had an IPA (beer), I was excited. We started out with a goat cheese quesadilla that was a out of this world. Goat cheese quesadilla? Come on you know it has to be... More

Great people watching spot on the edge of the town plaza. Pizza is good and just right for two. We generally share a salad. The shaded outdoor area is perfect for pizza. Micro brews don't live up to their cost but we generally try one before shifting to our old standby. To be honest, I only eat pizza in Loreto... More

Lovely leafy setting, excellent authentic food. Open on a Sunday night which is handy. Wasn't sure what to try, but followed Nelson's advice and had the perfect meal.

We had been next door at a wonderful place, Mita Gourmet, and happened across the sign for Craft Beer at 1697 - determined to return and try out the Scorpion dark beer. We were not disappointed!! Nelson greeted us warmly and supplied us with not only a great beer, but also a very good wine (Chilean) which is hard to... More
