Great people watching spot on the edge of the town plaza. Pizza is good and just right for two. We generally share a salad. The shaded outdoor area is perfect for pizza. Micro brews don't live up to their cost but we generally try one before shifting to our old standby. To be honest, I only eat pizza in Loreto to avoid an argument with my bride. Don't know if it's the best, but with cold beer, most any pizza works for me. Definitely worth a stop if you are looking for a change of pace or have kids.

Lovely leafy setting, excellent authentic food. Open on a Sunday night which is handy. Wasn't sure what to try, but followed Nelson's advice and had the perfect meal.

We had been next door at a wonderful place, Mita Gourmet, and happened across the sign for Craft Beer at 1697 - determined to return and try out the Scorpion dark beer. We were not disappointed!! Nelson greeted us warmly and supplied us with not only a great beer, but also a very good wine (Chilean) which is hard to find on the Baja. We then went in for the chile relleno - which was a departure from the usual gummy, starchy version, and instead was light (despite the inclusion of beef) and paired well with both the wine AND the beer. We also encountered a very fun, interesting bunch of other guests that made our evening not only delicious but memorable. We would definitely return and will recommend this to our pals heading to Loreto!!

The ambiance was good. Tucked away near the square. We dined on the stuffed chili relleno and a pizza. The waiter was more than helpful and the food was good, but not what it could have been. This was my 3rd chili relleno meal in Loreto, as I had just discovered them on this trip, and this one was below average. Ground beef in a pepper...sigh. The pizza was good, but again, nothing to drive a 4 or 5 star review. The bread and garlic butter they bring to the table to begin the meal was the only thing memorable. Overall...nice place to eat, but after you have tried many of the other places in Loreto.

Consistently great food. Craft beers are pretty good as well. The staff could not have been friendlier. It is at the high end price-wise in town, but worth it.
