The restaurant is a bit dated on the interior, but awesome patio. Service is friendly, food is excellent and you can't find a better patio spot in Deep Cove. Definitely recommend it!

We are frequent diners at this cosy, busy, warm and friendly bistro. The chef creates some amazing dishes, so always look for the specials, and we have had some of the best flavours we have ever tasted anywhere in the world in this little gem of a neighbourhood restaurant. The patio in the summer is hard to beat but you... More

Great service! Great food! Amazing location. Make a reservation. A really lovely place to go. Go for walk in this little town before dinner so go early. A great date night.

Our crew of 6 went there for grub during storm repairs. We were hungry, in a hurry and had no reservations. They realized the situation and fit us in. The food was excellent and service good. Not really the place for 6 dirty linemen, but I have been back with my girlfriend 3 or 4 times (don't tell my wife).... More

Beautiful views over Deep Cove. Elegant decor but not pretentious. Excellent service and food. The lap throws for guests that are sitting outside on the patio are a nice touch. I always make reservations online at OpenTable.com rather than wait in a line-up as it's a very popular restaurant. Brunch, lunch and dinner are all excellent. Sometimes we even go... More

I decided to take a drive to Deep Cove on Saturday afternoon and ended up at the Arm's Reach for a late lunch. Everything was as it should be. Both service and food. We were greeted promptly at the front door, staff were all very professional, courteous and friendly. The young woman setting tables in the restaurant was inspecting silverware... More

Arms Reach Bistro offers diners a spectacular view of Deep Cove and does not disappoint with the equally as spectacular food and drinks. In the summer/great weather days... be sure to make a reservation or be prepared to wait as this is a favourite for both locals and tourists. I had the CBC - Curry Butter Chicken... good portion size... More

This very successful restaurant caters to tourists and locals by virtue of its location by the water and the magnificent view of Deep Cove. The service is subtle but attentive, the food is served on a large plate so the actual food on the dish can be hard to find, a bit of generosity with a few more vegetables would... More

I am reticent to even provide a review for this hidden gem nestled away in Deep Cove. It is already hard enough to get a table. Fortunately, they keep a few walkups available or you can sit at the bar if there is a free space. Awsome food. The best Carpaccio anywhere.

So often, places that have superb locations seem to rest on their laurels and the food & service end up mediocre at best. Thankfully, not so here! This is my kind of place, where the owners happily mingle with guests while ensuring everything is prepared & served just so. My girl had the Eggs Benedict (Weekend Benny) and it was... More
