Great place to enjoy a lunch.

Perfect weather , good service , good food and a killer view. The only real negative is the price. Be prepared to pay a little more than some of the other restaurants around , but you should enjoy your meal.

We had a wonderful meal at Arms Reach. Our server was very friendly and chatty and the quality of food was impressive. The setting was lovely too, overlooking the Deep Cover harbour. We all enjoyed our meals and then each had some dessert which was really good too. They have an extensive wine list and some great choices on the... More

I went here for the first time last January and couldn't wait to go back again for the butter chicken. It was probably the best that I had ever had. Both times I was here at the lunch hour during the week. The first time was not busy but the second sure was and I was glad that we had... More

The menu could be broader,but what is offered is pretty good. Bathroom access could be improved .a friend in Sept had a nasty fall.from the uneven flooring I think.

The Deep Cove location is very nice with a lovely view. We found the menu to be a bit limited. Had the cauliflower soup which was wonderful. The main courses were both good, not great, but good. Specialty cocktails were imaginative and tasty. Where the experience was lacking was the service. Our waitress was reasonably friendly, but after delivering out... More

We love going to Arms Reach before going to the theatre at Deep Cove. My favorite entre is Angry Chicken and the Creme Brulee is to die for!

This little place is one of my favorites in North Vancouver. Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac by the water's edge, they serve great comfort food. Mostly locals know about this place and it's charm! Hike Quarry Rock and then come here afterwards to reward yourself!

A lineup outside the door - a good sign - it was worth waiting for. Food great, service good considering the number of people

Not sure why the negatives from others. We have been there one-half a dozen times and always had well prepared food. There is not much in the way of fine dining in Deep Cove, but coming to the Bistro is a fine excursion to a folksy small town. If the weather is nice, plan your dinner to include a pre-... More
