“Watch out for Orbe”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

Orbe will scam you if you let him.

The food was nice, and Orbe is a jolly man. In fact his place came recomended to us by a friend.
But note this ASK FOR THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING first.
Food menu, if he doesn´t just tell you, has no price listed, and food cost was a touch high.

THE PROBLEM: Orbe will rip you off offering Mezcal, or other such add ons after the fact. He OFFERED us some Mezcal. "Here, you have to try this", then poured Mezcal from a coca-cola bottle. It was nothing special. "here have another you two", andpoured one more against our resistance...
You can imagine our surprise when the bill came and there were 4 shots of Mezcal listed at nearly 60pesos EACH. This almost trippled the price of our otherwise acceptably priced meal.
We argued but the Jolly man was suddenly less Jolly. WE would have just walked out, but were there with a guy who lived in town, and Orbe would have held it against him.

I´ll never go back. You can make your own decision. But if you go, remember to ASK FOR THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING, he isn´t offering it as a friend.
