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. :)

Read about this place on Tripadvisor. The place is nice and cosy but food is nothing special. Ordered a beef burger and it was ok-ish. Soup of the day (onion) and mashed potatoes were just ok. We are surprised that it's on the 3rd postion in Cebu.

Hands down to the best quality customer service they offer. From the moment I came in until I left. This restaurant is easy to find too. The food was excellent with very reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend and go back.

They are not chilli heads as such but they did supply a true hot when I asked for it. If they understood masalas they would increase the other heat spices not just chilli. The meal was cheap, serving size good, mango shake fantastic.

The service here is excellent, the waiter did know what their product is and speaks in English even if you're just locals. the food was great too, the pesto fettucini pasta I tried was bursting with flavorful herbs and garlic. ambiance was comfy and not...

Owned by an Australian chef and Filipino wife, Canvas presents an excitingly different menu for the Philippines. Great food, casual setting, great service and reasonable prices. Good wine list enabling the selection of the perfect accompaniment to the meal. I was very impressed and have since recommended friends, visitors and family - none of which we're disappointed.
