We have stayed a total of 17 days in Loreto on two occasions and each time we have tried many of the local restaurants. We could not find any that equaled Orlando's. Everything on the menu is good and freshly prepared. Soups, Mexican dishes, fish, shrimps, chile relleno, all perfectly made. We have had dinner there at least 6 to... More

Our first night in Loreto and this was the one restaurant we'd heard about before coming up from Cabo San Lucas so we had to seek it out. It wasn't difficult to find and we felt very welcome. Authentic casual Mexican cafe atmosphere (read: gravel floor, outside dining under a palapa style roof, plastic chairs, and extremely reasonable prices) and... More

Wonderful food and service. With the taste of Mexico. Tables outside under a palm branched covering. If you wanted a wonderful lunch this would be where you should go. Free WiFi

There are a number of very good restaurants in Loreto and Orlando's leads the way. It doesn't have the beautiful views of Sabor's or La Picazon: there are approximately 10 tables situated on gravel so the view is very basic - a local roadway. Orlando's restaurant has expanded three times because of popularity and this is likely due to consistent... More

Our family of four had a late lunch at Orlando's our first afternoon in Loreto. We were drawn by the sign in the plaza and were very glad we sought it out. It is informal with outdoor seating and very good food. All four of us were pleased with our meals (mine was the sea bass in mango). I would... More

We noticed the number of locals that would frequent this restaurant and now we know why. The food is great ... beer cold and good service. The coconut shrimp was my favorite !

Orlando's is a small outdoor Mexican restaurant. The food is simple Mexican and portions are ample. It is advertised as one of the best restaurants in Loreto (per their outdoor sign) which references Tripadvisor. It was good, but not a place I would call the best establishment in Loreto. Felt like a place where the American Hotel guests went because... More
