“Down the Drain”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

I always like the atmosphere at Canvas and tolerate the service and food but my last visit on Thursday 13-9-2012 was the worst so far.
1-We booked a table for 13 but when arrived was not ready
2- Service was terrible our order of beverages took over 30 minutes to arrive and it was done in intervals (6 beers,i margarita, soft drinks, Vodka lemon). and that was even after we saw the manager
3- food (pizza and salads) were OK but not great.

I do not think i will go there again . Pity

“Beautiful surroundings, mediocre food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

I think I added a star for the contemporary history of the location. At the edge of one of the older parks in Amman which was converted to a little museum of fine art.
Greenery is peaceful and the Weibdeh hill is quaint and relaxing.
Avoid Fridays.

“Really nice terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Nice place for drinks, snacks, and food. Their outdoor terrace is really nice (beautiful, relaxing, and chill ambiance), and sometimes they have live music

They have good salads and their grilled chicken is delicious.

I will return.

“A canvas of flavours for all tastes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

I went there for dinner with a big group of friends. There was a big table in the garden that we liked a lot. The food gave us a different choise from the tipical giordan food (after 2 weeks we couldn't eat hummus any more), this place is for those that love fusion. I took a salad with shrimps and springrolls, everything really tasty, but a little expensive. I left the restaurant still hungry, having spent an amount that in another restaurant could have been for two persons.

“different....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

good location in old area of Amman, the atmosphere is nice especially on the outside terrace . food is good but quality changes from time to time. Prices are on the high end like most resturants in Amman especially when including alcoholic beverages with your meal
