We made reservations as it's for my wife's birthday. They decorated our table and dessert came with sparkling candles. The beef platter was excellent; 1.2kg of grass fed beef ribs, grilled as ordered 30% cooked, charred on the outside. For the sides there's scalloped potatoes, mashed potatoes, fries, pumpkin puree, Israeli artichoke that looks like ginger but tastes like potato,... More

This restaurant was packed when we went on Saturday night but luckily we had a reservation. There were many customers that were turned away due to a full house. The food was delicious and used the local produce from the area. BYO wine. The staff were attentive and made sure the food was to our liking. WOuld definitely go there... More

After a recommendation from a friend I decided to visit Arc of Iris for a Sunday evening dinner. From the very welcoming hostess to the warm environment I felt very settled and comfortable. As it's BYO I brought a bottle of my favourite Margret River Cab Sav. The food was absolutely incredible from the starter to the lamb main, everything... More

The Arc of iris has reopened with a new owner. We were lucky enough to be invited to the pre opening to taste the new menu. The food was amazing, the new menu is a mixture of the old favourites crispy skinned port belly and the chef's inventions. The outside area has had a huge face life and now looks... More

excellent food, really recomend the belly pork. The appearence of the place does look very tired both inside and out but dont be fooled by this. Food and service is brilliant.

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write a review. I am so glad you enjoyed the food and service, that is certainly our aim. You are right, it does all look very tired, and is not at all reflective of the quality of the food or service. You and others will probably be pleased to know that... More

It was the beginning of a long weekend and we drove from Perth to Margaret River. The lodge where we were staying in recommended us to Arc of Iris. It wasn't difficult at all to locate this little restaurant .... My daughter ordered angle hair pasta with shark bay crab as that was the only pasta dish around. Since she... More

Whenever we go to Margaret River, we always have one meal at Arc of Iris. The food is so beautifully prepared and I love the atmosphere, the decor and the service is always efficient. My kids love it, but it is a foodie place and there is no play area or such. My kids like real food too. No nuggets... More

We were thrilled with the food we ordered, i had the duck and my partner had the rack of lamb and both were cooked to perfection. It is a BYO restaurant, which was really good. And its really easy to find on the main street in town. Highly recommended.

It seems like a decade since we dined at this unique little restaurant. We were glad we booked, particularly on a long weekend... as we'd definitely have missed out on an indoor table. Four of us enjoyed entres and mains, which included Spring Rolls, Dukkah Wood Fried Bread, Creamy Garlic Prawns, Seven Spice Squid, Venison Medallions and Beef. Service was... More

For us locals this has been a stable casual restaurant that has evolved over changing hands only three times in 17 years. The winning formula of great food in a relaxed atmosphere has never changed. Try the signature dishes of duck or the best steak in town. You wont be disappointed.
