“One of the Best”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Arms Reach Bistro offers diners a spectacular view of Deep Cove and does not disappoint with the equally as spectacular food and drinks. In the summer/great weather days... be sure to make a reservation or be prepared to wait as this is a favourite for both locals and tourists. I had the CBC - Curry Butter Chicken... good portion size and absolutely delish...the serving size allowed me enough to enjoy for dinner and lunch the next day!

“you pay for the location”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

This very successful restaurant caters to tourists and locals by virtue of its location by the water and the magnificent view of Deep Cove. The service is subtle but attentive, the food is served on a large plate so the actual food on the dish can be hard to find, a bit of generosity with a few more vegetables would have been appreciated, the wine list was great as was the warm bread served with dinner.

“A true Gem.”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I am reticent to even provide a review for this hidden gem nestled away in Deep Cove. It is already hard enough to get a table. Fortunately, they keep a few walkups available or you can sit at the bar if there is a free space.
Awsome food. The best Carpaccio anywhere.

“Lovely place for brunch. Highly recommended!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

So often, places that have superb locations seem to rest on their laurels and the food & service end up mediocre at best. Thankfully, not so here! This is my kind of place, where the owners happily mingle with guests while ensuring everything is prepared & served just so.

My girl had the Eggs Benedict (Weekend Benny) and it was luscious. I had a bacon & egg breakfast (Custom Eggs) and it was very good, but the Benny was better!

The service was attentive, but not smothering, while the ambience & lovely views of Deep Cove were fabulous!

I can't wait to sample their dinner offerings on our next visit. What a delightful restaurant! Try it--you won't be disappointed!

“Beautiful location”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

The Arms Reach is in a beautiful location overlooking the water in Deep Cove, but I thought the food was just average, and a little overpriced.
