This is our second visit to this bistro, and it will not be our last. A day trip to the North Shore with visitors from the UK, and Deep Cove was on our list of places to see. Neither couple were really hungry, but wanted more than a coffee and cake, so each couple shared a meal. This was no... More

Deep Cove is picturesque and the Arms Reach Bistro is ideally located near the Inlet. Everyone was very happy with the food and the wine list appeared to be extensive although I was not buying - my host did find a bottle of Dom Perignon to order, so I had no complaints. My only criticism was the crab cake starter... More

I'm a local and sometimes its nice to be spoiled. This is the place. It's location can't be beat. When you approach the property it feels like you on vacation and going out to eat in a wonderful tiny port in a far away country. There are small parks on the water seconds away walking. You already know that after... More

In April 2014, we visited UBC for a campus tour. We had a chance to also visit Deep Cove, dined at Arms Reach Bistro, and fell in love with both the restaurant and the location. Food was delicious and our server was great! A year later, we dropped our daughter off for her freshman year at UBC. We went back... More

Beautifully located, delightful restaurant. We have eaten here twice. On this occasion, the starter of calamari was perfectly cooked, moist, tasty & soft. The CBC chicken curry was also lovely. Serving staff great. One tiny complaint - the inside restaurant has no aircon & in August our table of 8 were hot & slightly sweaty.

I've been here multiple times over the years, and the setting is always what brings me back. The food is decent, though nothing overly fantastic. Prices are ok, you mostly pay for the experience. Staff are always friendly and knowledgeable. Worth a stop if you're already in Deep Cove.

We stumbled upon Arms Reach in Deep Cove on the North Shore for lunch and am I ever glad we did. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. The Gorgonzola burger was delicious and the hand cut fries were a nice touch. The smoked salmon and shrimp sandwich was also enjoyed by a guest at our table. The... More

Wonderful resort like setting in Deep Cove. If you want to get out of the city, and still feel like you have gone somewhere really special, try Arms Reach Bistro.
