It is a nice place, and you can sit outside facing the courtyard and plaza. The food is good and reasonable, service good too. If you want to eat Italian or other non Mexican varieties, this is a great place.

We ate here based on a glowing recommendation from someone on our whale tour. The setting is quite lovely. We looked out on the plaza and watched a group of young people practicing for a performance at the upcoming carnaval. Large shade trees surrounded us. Food was quite good and a little different from regular Mexican fare. My partner had... More

We are residents of Loreto and so enjoy our weekly dinners at 1697. The ambience, the service and the food are always wonderful. We consider this restaurant as our home away from home and we highly recommend.

Owned by a local woman and her Irish husband, this a great option for "fine" dining in Loreto. They also have a small hotel on site. We enjoy the friendly service and outdoor seating when the weather is good, which is most of the time. They offer local craft brews on tap, which is unique in Loreto. Menu selection is... More

We went to 1697 with friends so we could talk. The inside of the restaurant offered a quiet environment for my hearing impaired husband and our friends. The waiter reduced the sound of the music which also helped, but still played beautiful relaxing music. I will go there again.

We didn't make it to 1697 on our first trip to Loreto and almost missed out on this trip. I am so glad we didn't. The service was very good and the waiters were attentive and helpful. The chile rellenos were amazing. We enjoyed our evening there so much we returned a few days later with friends for another delightful... More

Friendly staff and an excellent evening dining on the outdoor patio under the canopy of trees. Food was outstanding (Chile Rellenos) and one of the best ever margs. The owner came by the table to make sure all was good.

Bland. One of my compadres summed this up perfectly when she said, "this is what they think Americans want for dinner."
