From the Seared AAA Beef Carpaccio to the Chai & Ginger Creme Brûlée all was perfect!

Our dinner was so very delicious starting with our appetizers of Fried Cauliflower and Green Beans, Beef Carpaccio, and the perfect Charcuterie Plate with tasty & fruity grainy mustard (first time to try this). Our family enjoyed five different main courses and not one disappointed. The Beef... read more

Perfect location with nice views of deep cove. We sat outside and were offered blankets which were welcomed. The spicy pasta is the best dish I've had in many years coming to Vancouver. The pisco sour wasn't good but that's okay because the views and food will blow you away!

While visiting North Vancouver a relative suggested lunch at Arms Reach Bistro, turned out to be a very good recommendation. Our server Lindsay helped brighten up a rainy day. A perfect setting by the water for a relaxed family lunch and visit. For starters, the Beef Carpaccio was extremely tender and tasty. While the Caprese Salad was prepared differently, with... More

I recently had lunch with my family to celebrate my parents' anniversary. I've been here before for dinner, which was excellent. The setting is casual yet stunning with views of Deep Cove. The service was impeccable and the food was simple (mainly sandwiches and pasta) yet delicious. I didn't see many gluten-free options, however, which would have been nice. That... More

Set in deep cove, overlooking the harbor, this restaurant is a great place to celebrate an event. We went most recently for my wife's birthday dinner. If you have more than 4 ppl make sure you reserve ahead because they don't have a lot of options for parties of 5 or more. We had 6 for our dinner and had... More

After tubing plans in Seymour fell through, we decided to pop into Deep Cove for dinner. Arm's reach had decent reviews, so that is where we headed. The service was very friendly but slow. We arrived at 20 to 5, and the place was practically empty so this was confusing. We waited a bit too long for our food, which... More

Even though our meal was most enjoyable and the service exceptional, the surroundings and the environment would almost make you forget everything else. This restaurant has the benefit of breathtaking scenery all around - well worth a visit just for the view.

Those people who took care of us were so interesting and nice. We laughed a lot. Belgium Chocolate pate is the one you shouldn't miss. And the CBC chicken curry is fantastic, can't stop but finished it. Anyway, it's a place that you want to come back next time.
