Wide menu, excellent food and great service. I have been here many times over the years and it has never failed me, even though I'm picky when it comes to food. International dishes or rice dishes for locals - they just do it. Chorizo & crocodile jambalaya, a good solid bruger with nice homemade potato wedges, Chicken Chicharon or grilled... More

I have eaten at Canvas twice now and have loved each experience. Tonight I had the potato and leek soup to start, which was delicious. Then I ordered the Caesar salad with an entree consisting of a delicious, tender pork cutlet with a prawn and pesto fettuccine. The entree was one of the tastiest I have had in Cebu. On... More

Canvas restaurant is a regular one we like to visit when in Cebu City. It remains quite consistent in its food offerings, quality, and tastes. Some items are clearly much better than others on the menu, but the ribs were a standout on this visit. Generally, the food is quite tasty and very well presented. There is traditional Australian food... More

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...
