This is a long time favorite of mine as I live close by and is a must for visitors as they will not only enjoy a great restaurant but also the water views and nearby park, beach and trails. All of the dishes are tasty, prices reasonable and the service and attentive and unobtrusive.

The Arm's Reach Bistro is my favourite restaurant. Period. It's small, cozy, casual and welcoming. The food is reliably excellent, the service is reliably personal. The view is fantastic, the wine selection terrific, the prices reasonable. This restaurant has everything going for it. In all the years that my husband and I, and our friends, have been going to ARB,... More

Arms Reach Bistro at Deep Cove was excellent. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere was vibrant and the food was delicious with an excellent menu to select from. We enjoyed it so much we went there 3 times during our visit to Vancouver! Recommend booking as it is popular!

The food is excellent, service is good. The dessert they make is Banana Carmel Wonder. The restaurant is warm and friendly and is an added treasure for the Cove.

The traditional harbinger of summer, especially here in BC, is the May long weekend, typically characterized by traffic jams and one hour plus lineups at the borders and ferries. Being of a less tolerant bent when considering these holiday weekend challenges, we decided to remain in town and make a series of outings in hopefully less frenzied traffic patterns than... More

After a days kayaking with only the intention of a cold beer and glass of wine, it was nice to be treated so well at such a close Bistro. Atmosphere & service was so good we chose some food to fill our empty stomachs. We'll worth it. Great food. Great experience. Always like forward to going back.

This was a birthday dinner for our son and being close to home a good choice for all who attended. Very welcoming feel and to my happiness the restaurant was warm inside on a very wet, damp evening. Wait staff was friendly, attentive and observant as they noticed it was a birthday celebration. No free dessert but..............the cheesecake was delicious.... More

Location, view and ambiance is exceptional. Service is superior. On top of that the food is consistently excellent. They will allow you to bring a special bottle of wine for your occasions with a corkage fee. We use this when we bring a member who cannot drink alcohol and we bring her a nonalcoholic wine.
