“Chilling out with a nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I visited the place with colleagues and I was a bit puzzled by the entrance, as I never thought there could be any sort of bar or restaurant in there. When the elevator doors open you find yourself in a quite groovy place with groovy people. We sat on the terrace, where the view is just amazing from the 7th floor. The food was fairly nice and did not take too long compared to the Dutch average. The music in the backgroud was quite weird, sort of Folk, but bearable and not too loud! Pity it's shutting down to leave place to a hotel.

“Hipster place but what a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

My sister and I often go here when I visit her in Amsterdam. It is a laid back bar/cafe. We've never been at night, but it seems like a good place to go for a night of dancing.

The outside seating has nice views over Amsterdam. The food is ok, although the apple pie is very sweet. They have heaps of different drinks, although I always miss that they don't have soy milk for your coffee. It seems like a soy milk type of place.

“Surprisingly nice venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

My wife, daughter and I ate here a couple of times when in Amsterdam. The food was a cut above most of the local fayre and reasonably priced. The 7th floor location gives a great view I'm told but we couldn't see it through the mist not that this detracted from our meals. Limited choice of wine but that is only a minor quibble. If we're back in Amsterdam we will eat here again.

“The views are excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Want to spend a night amongst locals? Canvas is your place.
Daytime or nighttime, both are good times to enjoy the expansive views over Amsterdam from this 7th floor restaurant. It has an outdoor terrace.
I recently had a pasta and funghi dish which was very tasty and affordable; friends had the 'lazy ladies fries' which were also excellent.
At night dj's start playing music and party people come in.

“Good try but not quite there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The super friendly staff can't make up for the unremarkable food.
I hadn't expected semi-cold fries, but the meat dish I had was rather acceptable.
