Very average pizzas with a bad dough, however the service is very good and the atmosphere is nice. I had mussels for starter and they were very nice too.

Situated on the canal, Calzone is a nice place to eat in the summer. The food is pretty average but it's cheap and the staff are friendly. Recommended if you don't want to cook and want a quick pizza.

This is a lovely setting down on the marina and sitting outside on a warm evening really does feel as if you are somewhere nice and Spanish. The food is very good and reasonably priced. We will certainly visit again.
