If you're needing a break from the local cuisine this is a good spot to come to. The food is generally tasty although the service could be a little faster. There is enough variety for the whole family to enjoy.

Visited twice and had pasta, pizza, wings and Qingdao draft beer! I was satisfied both of time. Recommend for family and couples as well!

As a study abroad student in Qingdao, I do my best to immerse myself in Chinese culture and food. But when I'm having a tough day or am missing home, I go to one of two places; McDonald's or Canvas. My wallet hurts more when I go to canvas, but of course the food quality is much higher, and I'd... More

Pretty pricey, but good if you need a fix of western food. Good place to come for breakfast, dinner, or at the start of a night out! Good range of foods, and nice atmosphere with the other expats.

Canvas is a very clean and friendly restaurant. It's the go-to place for many foreigners living in Qingdao. The food tastes very fresh and authentically Western. The atmosphere is warm and nice, and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it when one is craving a burger, quesadilla, or other Western delight.

The restaurant has a international enviroment in the heart of Qingdao. A big range of options since mexican qesadillas, stakes (very good), burguers and pastas. The upstairs seats are more spacious.

We lived in China for six months, not far from this restaurant. We didn't eat here often, but when we did, we were always pleased. It was a wonderful place for expats to eat. It was often pretty full of Americans, Australians, Europeans, and South Koreans. The restaurant was nice, quiet, and served good food, including hamburgers that came with... More

The food is very good. The restaurant has a pleasant ambience and the staff are friendly and helpful. The ownership has recently changed but it doesn't appear to have affected the quality of the food. It's a little expensive but worth it in my opinion.

The food at Canvas was excellent. The service was a little bit slow, but that's hardly unusual for China, and we visited during the mid-day lull. There was a minor mistake made with my food, but it was corrected quickly and didn't detract from the overall experience. If you're looking for a good Western restaurant in Qingdao, I'd highly recommend... More

We had been recommended Canvas by some friends but were a little disappointed by our experience. We ordered a variety of food and drinks. We got our drinks after we had eaten our dinner (quite normal in China) so that wasn't an issue but my husband got his meal 15 minutes before me and he had finished by the time... More
