This restaurant has the best coconut currie mussels. My friend visited from Olympia this week and had to go to the Arms Reach for lunch, for her mussel fix. Other items on the menu have been well received but I always go to the mussels, the best anywhere that I have tried.

We ended up in Deep Cove yesterday (Sunday) for breakfast with friends at the Arm's Reach restaurant. I had the eggs and sausages with potatoes and brown toast. So I know you can have that at any restaurant right? But the flavours were amazing here. Cooked perfectly! The young guy that served us was terrific and the rest of the... More

It was the perfect girls luncheon. Love the menu... lots of options for all dietary needs. We both had soup and salad. Would recommend for a nice lunch or night out. The view is outstanding and the ambiance was perfect.

I've dined at the Arms Reach several times now - lunch and dinner - and it has never disappointed. The restaurant ambiance is warm and inviting, whether you're looking out at the ocean view at lunch or having a cozy dinner in the evening. The food is well presented and everything I've tried on the menu is delicious. They make... More

The pasta at the Arms Reach Bistro in Deep Cove is absolutely to die for. I had the seafood linguini which was very tasty and well presented, and the wife had the baked pasta dish which was just sumptuous and deliciously mouth-watering. The service here is excellent with older experienced servers that are on top of their game. Well worth... More

This is our favourite restaurant on the North Shore. Tucked away in Deep Cove with lovely water views the food and service is always exceptional. In the summer months they have a lovely outdoor patio, which is great. Inside there is a relaxed, cosy atmosphere. Their mussels in a coconut curry sauce are fantastic and I tried their steelhead trout... More

I don't eat at Arms Reach Bistro that often because of food restrictions - no wheat, sugar or, in general, carbs like potatoes and rice. So there wasn't that much there for me to eat ... I could eat mussels, which I enjoy. I found it a bit pricey for what I thought the value was. So we don't eat... More
