There are so many good little restaurants in Loreto that you are better off concentrating on the best ones. Orlando's is fine, but nothing truly memorable.

The service from planning to serving to clean-up is A-one and fairly priced. There were so many delightful dishes, a culinary Mexican adventure right at our home.

We enthusiastically went to Orlando's on our first night in Loreto and found the food to be ordinary, the flies abundant ( it is all outside seating), and the service so-so. Discovered many other better spots over the course of our visit.

If in Loreto, make sure to eat at Orlando's! Great food, very friendly and very good prices. The "Especiales" of 3 fish tacos and two beers is fablous! I traveled alone and they made me very comfortable so I ate there 5 times!

Really good food, coconut shrimp and Mexican combo plates are a good choice. Outdoor seating and yummy drinks!

Excellent Food and Service. I like the location near the town Plaza and afterwards I would go to the store next door for a coconut popsicle. The atmosphere is open so you can see out on the walkway as people pass by. Staff is skilled and friendly.

For the price this was the best place I found in Loretto. Try the shrimps dishes. There is a great Ice cream place next door.

We arrived at about 6:30 pm with everyone else so the service was a little harried but they did their best. Fish meal was excellent and beef fajita was OK. The margaritas were small but good and only 50 pesos.

Not the best food, kind of like a Mexican restaurant in the US, but great ambiance. The BEST part of the meal was going next door to the Paleteria (popsicle store) and eating amazing wonderful paletas. Mango was our favorite!

We enjoyed lunch here. Authentic food, cheap margaritas, excellent service. Seating is very casual - you are outside, but under a cover. There were some crew members from the ship here, some ex-pats, and some locals, so the word is out that this is the place to go.
