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

We had a fantastic scallop appetizer, a fantastic steak dinner and a nice bottle of wine. The service was great and the presentation was beautiful.

They are the only place in town that brews their own beer. They have great steaks and a lovely outside patio. They also have a tiny hotel attached.

Lovely, quiet outdoor dining with a variety of menu options and you can practically pick the frozen fruit flavor of your next margarita.

One of my favourites in Loreto. A little more expensive than some others, but nowhere in Loreto is very expensive. Lovely variety of food in a beautiful setting just off the main square.

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
