I love this resto because of less diners and their ambiance is so great. I find calmness dining here and satisfaction in foods being served. Per serving here is quite pricey but it's worthy.

Needed a quick bite on a stop over in the Henry and we chose Canvas over the italian restaurant next door, a decision which we regretted and reversed. The glass windows and modern interior appealed, however the food was mediocre at best. It had no heart and soul is the best way I can describe it and we had the... More

We chose Canvas for my birthday and I remembered it being a lot better in Ayala, particularly when it first opened. There was just something missing. I had the fish cakes and they were bland. Similarly, the curried pumpkin soup was a tad watery and missing zip. Both dishes did not feel like something Canvas was known for, namely simpler... More

Love the pumpkin soup so much i wanted to get another order. The steak was really good and was prepared well. As usual! Staff handled us well too. Thumbs up Canvas. Parking space needs a bit of improvement though. Ayala had a well organized basement parking while the new location in Banilad had motorcycles all over the place they were... More

Our family love this restaurant and have been here several times since it opened at Ayala Center Cebu many years ago. Now at a better location, they have maintained their food quality. Delicious and price is reasonable.

Not long after I wrote my previous review noting that Canvas at Ayala Terraces had closed, I found out that Canvas had simply moved to a new location, at 1 Paseo Saturnino, Banilad. Tried to write a follow-up review, but then found out that I had to wait a month before publishing another review of the same place. So, now... More

My wife had a rib eye steak with mashed potatoes which she declared was excellent. I had the Mahi Mani with mashed potatoes which was excellent also. Emman was a wonderful waiter who attended to our every need. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Went there the other evening at Ayala Terraces, but the restaurant front door was boarded up and padlocked. Does anyone know if it is closed temporarily or permanently?
