The food here is great, the ambiance is great and the service is also great! Easy parking in the underground garage (below the restaurant). My go to dish here is the penne chicken.. delicious! I was VERY impressed by the great service that we received! A decent selection of beer and a what seems like a good selection of wines... More

Stopped in for a drink and appy after a Quarry Rock hike. Had the calamari based on server recommendation that it is fresh (not frozen) and hand prepared each day. Service was exactly on point and one of the better service experiences I've had in the last while!

This cosy restaurant is a staple for North Shore residents and visitors alike. It is as comfortable on a winter night as it is on a summer evening; soak up the view of Quarry Rock in the distance or the twinkling lights of Deep Cove with its bobbing boats and rustic, dock walk. The culinary finesse of the chefs shines... More

Coming off of the Ironworkers Bridge driving North North East,there are two exits that one can take that being the first and third . The signage will apprise you of such. The first exit will lead you by the beautiful Indian arm route which you can enjoy as you make the journey through an First Nations reserve and some beautiful... More

We love Arms Reach Bistro. Being Deep Cove locals, this restaurant is a go-to for us. The food is always good and so is the service (and we always run into someone we know, which is nice). Everything on the menu is good. The baked spaghetti is to die for. If you want something lighter, the chad salad and the... More

This is our "go to" restaurant...the food is always good, there's great service, a lovely view and ambiance, and we often see other "locals" at Arm's Reach. (I'm going twice this week for birthday celebrations!). We have a couple of vegetarians in our family group, and the chef is willing to accommodate - for example "the CBC" (delicious Curried Butter... More

This is one of the best restaurants on the North Shore, and definitely the best restaurant in Deep Cove. The location is super cool, it's romantic and the food is fabulous, esp the pastas. Good wine list, just an all round great place for a fabulous dinner.

The beautiful view in a charming Cove overlooking the harbor, delicious food, and reasonable lunch menu all recommend a stop here. When asked, the waitress said that her favorite dish is the penne with chicken, goat cheese, and asparagus. Great choice! However, if I went back, I'd ask for a half order, since it was too big and too rich... More
