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.

Nice scene, but the evening was let down by terrible service and average food. It was as if everything was going in slow motion - drinks took ages, starter came after 45min, followed by main another 1 1/4hr later. No apologies from staff, who could only offer that it was very busy (implying that it was of course natural that... More

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 fun night out and experience some cool scenic views of nighttime Amstedam.

Canvas is located on the top floor of the Volkshotel, which is super quirky and hip but not in an obnoxious way. Limited menu but the food was very good and timely. Their drink special was absolutely delicious. Atmosphere is very fun. We went in winter but I'm excited to visit again when its a bit warmer and all the... More

We were there for Christmas so had special Christmas menu's which were oysters and deer steak. Oysters were so so but the deer steak was really great! Also had breakfast here because we stayed at the hotel and that was fully loaded with many options and tasty coffee.

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

Hop on one of the metro lines or on the tram and take a walk - it's worth it, I promise. We visited it to have some beer while watching the sunset. The views were stunning! We had a nice surprise as we expected a bar on hotel's rooftop to be rather expensive but we ended up drinking the cheapest... More

I went there with my fiancé last Saturday evening. We wanted to have some cocktails and sat on a table. As soon as we sat one of the staff removed the table without even acknowledging us or letting us what was going on....We obviously grabbed our staff and left to Bar Bukowski where the real party was happening!

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 happy. Vegetable like blue potatoes, romanesco or chick pea purree to share were also a... More
