Great find in Loreto

Jan Carlos is a great chef and owner. His creations belong in a 5 star restaurant. You will return again and again.

Fine food. Best clams in Loreto. Lovely service. Outside on plaza. One of the top three restaurants in town.

This was close to our hotel and it was an OK experience. I wouldn't recommend it. But, it was the off-season, so they may not have been at their best. They do take credit cards so that is a help.

We have been eating at Mita's for about seven years and each year it seems to get worse and worse. Possibly the chef/owner is getting tired of working? The cooking was uninspired and bland. Previously, the chef seemed very interested in making our meal a true dining experience, not anymore. The menu reads like a fine dining establishment. The food... More

We stopped in for lunch and ate outside in the patio. The restaurant, menus, tablecloths, patio furniture are all tired. Bugs were everywhere on the table. Prices are probably average. We ordered chips and guacamole. They literally gave us 6 chips... Kind of strange. Food wasn't amazing but average. Skip this one and go to a different eatery.

We ate at Mita twice during our stay. Very, very good food. Like many places in Loreto, be sure and brush up on your Spanish before you visit. But no problem, the chef came out and took our order.. Wait staff very pleasant.

For the last couple of years, our fishing group has this a traditional final day dinner after 3 fine days of fishing. This year, we brought yellowtail and grouper fillets. The owner and chef, Juan Carlos, as usual, prepared one of the finest dinners for us. The first course was yellowtail sashimi cut in extra thin slices. Even though, we... More

Butterflied jumbo shrimps wrapped in bacon and baked. Calories city but well worth it. Baked clams, a local favorite is excellent too.

I rarely ever leave a restaurant even if having a bad experience. Thought this place on the square would be a nice time. However my wife and I could not get through our appetizer without constantly swatting at flies. So I can't comment on the food, only the negative experience in what we thought would be a good restaurant. Others... More
