Well, being from Portland Oregon I am a bit of a beer snob. Light Mexican beers aren't very attractive to me. But at 1697 Zapilote's brewing does a find job with their Rattlesnake IPA. My wife and I had dinner there and I had the best chile relleno I have ever had. Nice light battered chile with very tasty filling.... More

Several traditional Mexican dishes together with brewery beer choices. Full-service bar + a great sangria. Caring, attentive staff.

There are many choices around the Plaza in Loreto, but I am glad we chose this one, not only for its significant name ( the town was established in 1697)but also for the unusual furniture, setting under the sprawling trees, and the warm welcome we received. The staff spoke very good English and helped explain some of the dishes on... More

This place has the best beer in Loreto. I love beer, but have never liked any Mexican beer; they all taste terrible. 1697 makes quality craft beer equal to any in the states. We had their chilli rellenos and they were epic. Service was friendly and not rushed. I recommend going here when you visit Loreto.

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

After weeks of Corona we loved stopping at Hotel 1697 for a craft brew! Great location right on the plaza too!

We had many of meals from this restaurant. The food was pretty good. The portions were great. We enjoyed many meals from this restaurant from our room. Very good place to eat. Menu was a bit limited, and they have there own brewery.
