This hotel was by far the best meal I had in Cebu City. Their service also matched their food. If you are looking for a good meal at a decent price, this is the place.

For the most part my numerous Canvas trips have been anywhere from acceptable to good food. Nothing really to right home about, but good enough to make the gamble. The soups/salad are consistent while some of the entree's have been off now and again. Tonight's meal I chose the fish and chips. Fries are alright and the dory fish was... More

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.
