I have to say that I did not expect much of this place as last time I was here it was really forgettable, (you can read my previous review) but I have been recently there again and I am always glad to re-review when it is to recognize that service, and specially the food quality have been improved.

Had we seen the comments on this restaurant on TripAdvisor, under a review of the unconnected(?) Hostal El Alfarero, we would not have visited it, but unfortunately we had not and we did!
