We always go to this restaurant to celebrate birthdays in the spring.

Really nice but quite expensive restaurant. Make a reservation, it is small and popular. They have a really interesting menu and a great selection of beer.

We took our out of town visitors for a walk in beautiful Deep Cove, situated at the south end of a fjord by the name of Indian Arm. After a pleasant walk in the park & lots of photo taking, we decided to have some lunch. There are at least a dozen restaurants along Gallant Avenue, the "main drag", and... More

My sister and I shared tomato-coconut soup, Chad kale salad, and roasted (grilled?) veggies. The food was delicious, but after 2 hours of kayaking we need a heartier meal (or more of it). The veggie plate was small. The bill totaled $30. Should have ordered our own plates, but not for the cost, thank you.

A recent dinner here was great. Food was fresh and innovatively prepared. Our server Amiee was on top of things and very friendly. Only downside was the restaurant was very warm on a Friday evening and they don't have air conditioning.

Had our last lunch here before flying back to the UK having visited our daughter and new grand-daughter who live nearby. They happily rearranged tables so our grand daughter (3 months) could see us at the table whilst she sat in her stroller. I had the seafood linguine which was superb and fresh, my wife and daughter both enjoyed the... More

We went for lunch yesterday to the Arms Reach. To say the service was unacceptable is an understatement. We told our waiter we'd start with Calamari while we decided what to order. After getting our appy we had to work hard to get his attention to order our mains (and later for water and our bill). Our calamari was awful... More

Had a family dinner here recently on our first night in Vancouver. Was a wonderful location and the food was excellent. Glad our hotel recommended this place. Nice area to stroll while waiting for table as well.

Love the location, ambience and of course the food is excellent. Sitting right beside Deep Cove we enjoyed the cuisine and all the action surrounding the patio area. Not to be missed on a visit to North Vancouver.
