This is a must stop for any beer fan. Great local brewed beer. And the atmosphere is awesome. Very shaded outdoor area and they also have many fans set up outside to cool you down. They also played great music while we were there as they had some Sirius/XM stations playing on the outdoor speakers. We also had some fresh... More

Stop to try the excellent micro brew and the pizza just becomes the next logical step!😎 The outside eating area right on the city center plaza is great for people watching and saying hello to people you know walking by on their way somewhere. Our groups are generally adults but I have taken my grandsons here and since they will... More

We enjoyed our meals at the 1697 Restaurant, especially the location on the square when the xylophone guy set up to play. Friendly passersby and fellow diners added to the social atmosphere of dining on the square. The brewery beers are a little pricey at 80 pesos per glass, but it was very very tasty. The owner was very friendly... More

If you like small batch beer in a warm beautiful place this is your Valhalla and the food is very good. Baja beer, pizza, pasta or steak all good to wash down with a nice Baja beer can't miss. Nice for lunch, dinner or a pit stop be sure to check out La Mision or get ice cream and visit... More

Firstly the location of 1697 is wonderful,right on the edge of the main square. The food ,sadly,was average by Loreto standards. The chicken fajitas were quite bland ,as was the Caprece salad..oh well, the location made up for it.

Stopped in Loreto while on a cruise. Kieran (from Co. Cork, IR) was an excellent host. Tried his Pale Ale and IPA; both excellent. Would go there again and recommend it to/for others.
