Canvas has existed for some time but has recently reopened after the whole building had been changed into a hotel. Canvas is on the 7th floor of the recently opened and quite impressive Volkshotel, which is just across the street from some of my other favourites: Baut and Trouw. Whereas these two will be gone by the beginning of next year, Canvas is luckily here to stay.
The view is still as amazing as it always was, I can never get enough of a good view of Amsterdam. Besides the view I enjoy the laid-back atmosphere on the terrace and the food which is very tasty and decently priced. Last time I was there the two of us shared three starters: Asian duck pancakes, something with crab, and Burrata (this has got to be my favourite cheese since I tasted it for the first time in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago). All of it was very tasty and the main courses also sounded worth a try!
Don’t forget to check out the hot tubs and sauna which are on the terrace on the top floor, these are only accessible for guests of the hotel. I guess I will just have to book a room here sometime.
