We were invited to attend Canvas's Degustation Menu night on about mid May. Well what an evening. 10 courses and 1 white and 2 red wines to sample.
Firstly the food, well we were over come by this, truly exceptional, maybe one or two many deep fried but wonderful.
The wine, well what can you say when you have the actual winemaker there in attendance and all the way from Spain.
We were introduced to the others that attended the evening and it was fantastic.
We go usually weekly or when we are at Alaya, why you may ask, well simple, the menu covers a lot of different styles and you can take yourself to most parts of the food world and the service is always wonderful. Price wise, it is great too.
Will return many times to come, my second home. Thank you again Steve and Ivy.

waiters seemed more interested in chatting with each other than attending to their duties.
Had to remind them to give us water with our meal as we had requested and on a hot night a fresh cool glass with each beer ordered would be nice and definitely an Australian touch.As would salt and pepper on the table.
A token Ozzie flag in the window really does not equate to an Ozzie eatery in my opinion and am sorry to say I thought the pub grub menu was not even close to what a pub would dish up at home. On a brighter note the tapas were great especially the small pies.So hopefully I just attended on an off night but sure didn't live up to expectations

Plan to be back here many many times, will be my new favorite restaurant.
Great food, great service, it's fantastic to see the Chef's enjoying themselves too, it means it a good place to work and that is reflective in the food. Thank you again

I took some clients here again for an important meeting over a last minute dinner. Next time I will book as it was full, but they managed to accomodate me & my associates, & it was nice to be recognized by the staff. the menu was different since my last visit, but i still found some favorites, we shared Tapas dishes which were as good as ever, a salad with cranberries was a refreshing combination, my meltique beef was super tender & delicious (my favorite), date pudding & coffee to finish up. It was a first time visit for my clients to this place, I was pleased with my choice again as my guests loved the place & the food also. Great for impressing people for business.
