Great Food Just Off The Main Square!

Easy to get to once you are at the main square. This place along with Mediteraneo are owned by a Texas family so there is a flare for mesquite smoked beef and ribs along with Mexican flavors and fresh fish! Wait staff was attentive, spoke English as well as Spanish and helpful with menu selections... read more

Slow service and staff not very accommodating. Food was ok, not great but acceptable. There are other choices in Loreto!

We were here last year on a cruise and came back again this time. This is owned by an American and they have a good balance of Mexican food, BB-Que and sea food. So if you have a meat and potatoes type of person in your group they will still be happy. We were there for local food. We had... More

Loved the garden setting and exceptionally friendly staff. Great margaritas and wine list. My wife and I had the Baja-style paella, done with a white aoli. Would have been plenty for 4 people, not just two. Delicious. Would definitely go again. No place quite like it in Loreto.

We dined here twice during our stay in Loreto and it was the prettiest place. The garden dining area is really charming with lights in the trees etc. The food and service were both very good.

We called here a couple of times during our stay in Loreto in January. Lovely atmosphere, a very welcoming and efficient waiter (who prepared a very fine margarita!), and some delicious food, all contributed to a great experience. We especially liked the fact that you could have tasty light meals as well as a full menu.

Local restaurant with excellent Mexican food. Loved the outdoor kitchen and watching the chefs with tall white hats preparing our meal.

We went to this place because looked nice and make BARBECUE thinking we were going to eat good food,especially made with wood. The restaurant was the most expensive in Baja...the attention was good, the outdoor patio looked really nice but the food was bad..., the barbecued meat and fish were cooked on the wrong way..Fish was hard to eat...the meat...
