We love Arms Reach. The food is good, they cater (very well) for kids and the view over the water is quite relaxing - no matter the weather. The staff has always been friendly and welcoming. In the summer try to sit outside on the patio, but, be warned, once the shadow comes over it can get a little chilly... More

The food, location and service are all excellent, do not try to find a parking spot close by particularly on weekends. Go by bus, walk or cycle would be my recommendation!

This restaurant has the most breathtaking view of the waterfront in Deep Cove! My husband and I brought his 88 year old grandmother here for lunch. The service was fantastic in that they allowed her to choose a table and the server was so patient with her. The food was excellent if a little overpriced but I am assuming you... More

This is a quaint little place in the village of Deep Cove. Its pretty much on the waterfront and depending where you sit you have a lovely view. There is also a patio where you can dine if that is your preference. We sat inside at a table with a nice view overlooking the harbour. There are only a few... More

A great place to grab a meal in North Vancouver. Lovely food though a little pricy. Loved the calamaris and the fries. Kids friendly .

After hiking up to Quarry Rock, I came here with some friends to have lunch. Our server brought us waters right away and was very friendly. I ordered the Harissa Chicken Salad Sandwich with a mixed green salad ($17). The menu said it was "SPICY!" but it really wasn't at ALL spicy! It still tasted good but the menu was... More

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
