Been here three times, the terrace was closed twice, and when it was open, it was instantly flooded with people. The food is great though. Staff were also accommodating to lactose intolerant and celiac disease suffering guest. Based on the 7th story in the Volkshotel.

Friends managed to book a last-minute table for our group of 8. Music was funky throughout dinner and then the beats were turned up by the DJ as the tables were removed to create a dance floor. Would definitely recommend if you're up for a...More

The menu is not so big, every dish is carefully prepared to look nice to eyes and taste great. It's a nice place where you can go just to have a couple of drinks with a nice view of the city.

Was there on a quiet night. Great to reflect on what was a short trip to Amsterdam. Great that it is quiet, prices of food and drinks reasonable

We came to Canvas with a group of colleagues and partnes for a relaxed and not-too-much-business dinner during IBC 2016. What a great choice! We had an amazing three-course menu: meat, fish and vegetarian, all in excellent quality and in a variation that made everyone...More
