Returned on a sunny but coolish day and sat in the glazed dining area looking up the valley. Had the menu del dia again with stunning bean and meat soup - flavour some and served to us in a large pot - far too tempting to fill up on it, then meatballs with fried egg and chips and the other main fried fish with salad. One of us had space for pudding - the arroz con leche which was creamy and delicious. Service charming and efficient. At euros 12 a tiny bit more expensive than others around here but worth every cent.
