The food in Troncones is spectacular.. Superbly fresh seafood and ingredients, creative chefs, great, laid back vibe. We've been to Orbe's several times. It is our go-to spot for cheviche, chile rellenos, and tacos. Great local spot where the locals and tourist mingle, sip tequila, chat about the surf and chill.

Orbe's is busy on Tuesday nights for a good reason. He serves smoked fall-off -the-bone pork ribs with large baked potato and grilled veggies. He has some of the coldest beer in town as well. If staying in or around Troncones try to make it to Orbes at least once for his ribs. Go a few days ahead of time and let him know you are coming, so that he can order and prepare enough.

Orbe is a Troncones institution! Great burgers, seafood, and he makes a mean margarita! In fact, wait a bit before ordering a second; they sneak up on you.

Everyone kept telling us we had to try the cheese-stuffed, bacon-wrapped shrimp at Orbe's. We thought the idea sounded horrible, like something a hotel caterer would come up with for a cocktail party. We were so wrong. These little treats are nothing like that. Orbe butterflies the shrimp, stuffs them with just a morsel of homemade cheese and then wraps then in a pancetta-style bacon sliced so thin you could probably read through it. These are then skewered and placed on the grill. The result is something that we had to have again the next day.

Orbe's is right on the village main street and you wouldn't think from looking at it that you would be fed like this. The signage boasts of his hamburgers, so you have no idea that the menu has many more delicious treasures. (The hamburgers are apparently excellent, but we didn't try them.)

Don't be fooled by appearances. Orbe is from Troncones, but worked in commercial kitchens in Minneapolis for several years before brining his skills home. His mother is Dona Ruffina, who has her own backyard restaurant in town, and who has set a high standard for delicious Mexican food. (If you order dessert, there is a good chance that they are the same desserts his mother serves, which are amazing.)

While we didn't discover Orbe's until late in the trip this time, it will be one of our first visits next time we are in Troncones. An excellent meal on the village main.

Once again our favorite place to eat and drink in Troncones. Orbe makes the best margaritas we have ever had. His food is authentic and delicious, and if you want a change of pace, he makes incredible bacon cheeseburgers. His family always made us feel welcome.
