Went with friends for a nice dinner. Delicious food, delicious wine and a really good service. Nice and quite location. Would recommend. Prices range so you can find something for everyone's pocket. Main courses $17-$35. Would go again if in the area.

Sunday evening we had a late reservation - my boyfriend let me choose where to go for my birthday dinner and as I've heard great things, Arms Reach Bistro was the place. I was slightly disappointed they ran out of a few things I ordered, but not surprised - it's a busy little restaurant, we were there at 8pm after... More

This was our second time to the Arms Reach Bistro. We originally found this restaurant during the Dine Out Vancouver Festival earlier this year. Our positive first experience brought us back. Both times we had great service. Tonight we had the Saltspring Island mussels in the white wine sauce (it also comes in a coconut curry), Spicy Spaghetti and the... More

Great location. Best views are before and after your meal, as you walk around the water, piers and beach. Inside all chairs, flooring is a bit worn given the upscale prices and fantastic location. Food is very tasty - they do no hold back on butter, olive oil, and butter. Friendly service. Outdoor seating with blankets is very inviting. I... More

Great food doesn't matter what will be your choice. Don't worry about the wine and let the maître choose it for you (fair price). On summer you must arrive early otherwise you'll face a long queue, as well on the sunny weekends. It worth the awaiting time.

The food and service are always very good - and you certainly can't find a better location. This is a perfect spot for a lovely summer lunch or dinner. Sit outside and enjoy the view!

What makes Arms Reach Bistro special (besides the stunning view it affords of Deep Cove) is its ability to be elegant without being stuffy. In other words, it's equally possible to have a nice romantic dinner here or to come here with friends for a casual brunch. Plus, the food is excellent. (Order the hummus if it's available.)

Nice view, friendly service, but disappointed with the calamari. Will have to just try the pasta if there is a next time.

The Arms Reach deserves its spot near the top of the North Van restaurant list on Tripadvisor. This bistro looks and feels casual, with patio seating, lots of locals, and a lovely water/ mountain view - but it offers a fine dining experience. The menu is varied and includes many interesting and creative "foodie" options. For example, they have an... More
