Real good play of flavors. Specially with their best selling Pork Medallion with fettuccine pesto created great tasting experience. Nailed it with their dishes complimenting flavors! FLAVOR ART! With their service I can say that the restaurant staff were very accommodating, we were surely well attended almost all the time. They were complete with smiles and great radiant personality which...

We arrived Cebu via an early morning flight and the first thing that came to our minds was to find an open restaurant where we could grab some food and rest while waiting for the city to come alive. We've read reviews that there are restaurants in Ayala Center that opens as early as 7am thus we went straight there... More

Went there for lunch several times, always satisfied. Service is attentive and the quality of the food is very good. I recommend the pasta with red curry sauce, chicken and mango. Very nice. Service sometimes a little bit slow but still acceptable.

Been to this restaurant several times. Loved the food! I like the servings, not too many and not too little. I also like the choices of their food in the menu, the food presentation and the price is just okay (mid range) for the kind of food served. I only wish that they will serve again some complimentary bread and... More

Canvass is a australian style restaurant and just like a canvass, their chef comes up with artistic food. For the several times I've been here, I can hardly understand and remember what I ate but don't get me wrong... It was a artistic gastronomical experience... In other words the food was really good. But I think not everyone will be... More

If your a fan of Australian food then try them. They have the best Ostrich too. They are located at The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu. I still have to try their breakfast. :)

I went to Canvas Bistro Bar and Gallery because it came highly recommended by an aussie friend of mine. I will just come straight to the point, as I was certainly not disappointed.
