Hmmm...EVERYBODY we asked at the Villa del Palmar , from the top management to the shuttle bus driver said 'Orlando's is the best'. It's not. It's position, some 150 yards or so in a very plain area away from the pretty market square, is less than ideal. Plastic chairs on gravel. 'The best tortilla soup around' was the cry. Not... More

Sitting under the palapa enjoying breakfast, lunch or dinner is always a treat at Orlando's. Nothing fancy but, everything is good.

Friendly, relaxed environment - authentic Mexican, fresh and great service. Within walking distance of most locations - outdoors so nice and breezy.

A friend who lives in Loreto took me here for an early evening meal. I'm grateful for her recommendation: the range and quality of the food is excellent- both traditional Mexican and the chef's Mexican-style specials. Good for couples, families or just solo. The margaritas were pretty good, and the specialty Ice Cream shop shares an entrance.

Our 10 day Cruise to Mexico included a stop in Loreto. We weren't sure what we would find there in terms of a place to have a good meal. So, we asked servers at a restaurant where we could get the best Mexican food. No English spoken here. But they brought out someone who could. It was kind of funny,... More

Outdoor dining, with shade. Things to remember: 1.this is Mexico and 2.flies live outdoors. What we liked most about this relaxed restaurant, aside from consistently good food, was the service and the staff. In addition, the kitchen is visible and it is clean and well-organised.Plus, the wonderful la Michoacana ice cream parlour has an entrance right there on the terrace.... More

We were told by our villa del Palmer resort to go to this restaurant. This was the best information we were giving. The food was very good and very inexpensive . What I liked about the restaurant, was that the locals were eating there to.

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.

this is the second wedding we have had catered by Orlando and his staff. The latest was this month, April 2015. We had 70 guests and all the food and presentation was perfect. 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.
