Situated in the stunning Community of Deep Cove. 

Established in 2004 by brothers in law Alistair Knox and Chef Erick Kauko, Arms Reach Bistro started out as a small family run restaurant on the water. Now, after being open for over ten years we are a proud part of the North Vancouver Community. Our passion and love for food, as well as the want to provide impeccable customer service has lead us to receive many awards over the years.

InGrain Pastificio

In April 2014, owners of Arms Reach Bistro ventured to start a new and innovative project. Alistair Knox and Erick Kauko opened 'InGrain' at Parkgate Village. They wanted to provide pasta that focused on locally sourced, organic nutritional grains. Through a delicate process of extruding and slow drying, they bring too us unique and tasteful house made pasta in a variety of shapes, colours and flavours. They provide an extensive amount of specialty items such as oils, sauces and salts. Step into their stunning room and feel like you have stepped into Italy, relax and enjoy.
