Canvas Eatery

Tim Tehan's Canvas Eatery, at the QEII Square entrance to MAMA, is a modern casual dining space with offerings of quality food emphasizing seasonality and fresh ingredients, paired with a sophisticated wine list and boutique beers. Canvas is the destination for all occasions whether it be breakfast, takeaway, lunch or dinner, a special event or occasion, or simply to enjoy a beverage or snack on our stunning terrace overlooking the gardens.

About Tim

Former Holbrook farm boy Tim Tehan brings his rural roots and international career to his new role running Canvas Eatery at MAMA. Raised at Upper Wantagong Station, Tehan developed a respect for the land from his father and appreciation of cookery from his mother who favoured Asian and Indian flavours. Tehan has moved to Albury with his partner Michelle and their son, 18 months. He has previously worked at Stokehouse (Melbourne), The Ivy (London) and Christopher's (London). He established Fitzroy landmark Birdman Eating, which he sold early in 2015.
