Closed?

Went there the other evening at Ayala Terraces, but the restaurant front door was boarded up and padlocked. Does anyone know if it is closed temporarily or permanently?

I was in Cebu for a 4 day conference. I never left the room of the nearby Waterfront hotel, except for the one day. I just had to come back to Canvas. It never disappoints. They did not have tomato soup that day but it is my favorite and they made it. Service is very pleasant. Will come here every... More

We had passed this place many times on our way to other restaurants in Ayala,but decided to give it a try recently. Lunchtime at weekends is very busy in the mall so it was nice to find the place very quiet.I guess this is because it doesnt appeal to the Filipino or Asian taste buds & that for Cebu prices...

The staff is very friendly and attentive. They'll check up on you when you're almost done with a plate and ask if you have anything else to order and how the food was. It was clean and quiet. Good for when you have a book with you. While waiting for the food you could check out the artwork all over... More
