When in a mall, it's hard to find a meal that's cut above the usual fastfood or casual meals. You'd be surprised when you dine at Canvas- located at the 2nd level of The Terraces Ayala. If you love good food, then you'd definitely fall for Canvas!
It was a triple birthday celebration dinner for Sheng, Mark & Nico and I recommended we dine at Canvas! Some are first time diners at the bistro so they were so excited since I have been telling them that food at Canvas is great! We ordered all 6 Canvas creation full meals/main ( 1 Canvas Creation wasn't available that night) plus 1 special order!
Five Spice and Lemon Grass Roast Chicken with Garlic Mash at 295php.
I am a big fan of beef dishes and I must say I love this dish! Beef Fillet with blue cheese, red wine jus served in wok-fried Asian greens and sided with mashed potatoes. 345php for the full meal/main. Entree priced at 220.
Imported Baby Back Ribs in honey and rum sauce served with potato wedges, corn and green salad.
Price: Entree 265php Main: 395php
Substituting our Grilled Lamb Cutlets, is a special order. Lamb shank served in a bed of sauteed veggies. Tender and juicy lamb meat with a semi sweet sauce. Ronald and I are a fan! \m/
Mixed Grill - Thai BBQ Chicken, local beef, pork medallion and cream of dory served with potatoes and roasted veggies. Priced at 495php
Also one of my Canvas Fave is the Garlic, Paprika and Thyme rubbed porkchop with Spanish onion, Caramelized apple with Cumin curry battered potato wedges. 275php.
My personal pick for the best Canvas creation -Pork medallions with grain mustard sauce, tiger prawn and pesto fettuccine. Main/ Full order is priced at 365php or without tiger prawn at 285php.
It was such a nice experience for we haven't seen each other for months and sharing a table with great food, amazing friends and loads of catching up was just perfect! As we all agreed- WE LOVE CANVAS!

We also have to commend the service at Canvas specially to Ms. Christ Cille Gegremosa! Service is very close to a fine dining resto at a casual and laid back ambiance. Keep it up guys!
