Food and ambience

Special occasions, Romantic, Scenic view, Large groups, Bar scene
Canvas, the place to take a breath of the early morning air or gaze at the late-night city lights. The place for the first bite or the last cocktail and everything in between. The Canvas can be blank, make it what you will.

The atmosphere is nice. We are able to enjoy cocktails on the terrace. Later we moved inside as it was chilly. Overall the staff was friendly and quite helpful.

We weren't very happy with the food. When we said so, we got complaints that we should have said something faster. But no one had come to ask if we are satisfied or not! So can't say I enjoyed the food nor the service. The...view is great though. Would not go again nor recommend to others. Maybe it's better to just go there for drinks?More

What a fantastic restaurant with a vibrant atmosphere. We are staying at the Volkshotel and booked the Cavas restaurant for our first evening there. The restaurant is on the 7th floor, offering amazing views of the whole of Amsterdam. The service and food was amazing....Not too overpriced for a hotel and a good range of vegetarian meals too. The atmosphere was great and the music was enough to keep the adrenaline pumping to keep you up later if needed. We would definitely eat here again.More

Nice place where to have a nice drink and enjoy a cool view of Amsterdam. They have a more “intimate” area where sipping a good cocktail or you can enjoy some dancing as they put music until 3 am on Saturday nights

The restaurant is located on the roof of the VolksHotel and has a great view of the city. The staff were friendly and helpful. The Xmas music was matching and very nice, too. The food served to us, Stamppot of the season with smoked sausage,...Entrecote with herb butter & White chocolate cheesecake with red fruit, was all very delicous. I can warmly recommend this roofbar restaurant to anyone who likes good music, great city lights and even Dutch beer and food.More
