We're the quirky little gastronomic delight the Margaret River locals keep a secret, and why not, they know a good thing when they experience it. However at the Arc we think everyone deserves a chance to experience our exquisite collection of tastes. Recently we've added a fresh new look to our surrounds. We've retained the wonderful character, our famous eclectic look and those wonderful, favorite dishes, especially the Duck. You can still order the mouthwatering Pork, Beef, Lamb and Venison and we'll feature some delicious new additions. With a reputation for excellent food and welcoming service, you'll find us at the top end of the main street in Margaret River and we're open EVERY NIGHT from 6pm.

Marvellous mains

Loved the interior - warm, quirky with the various clocks on the wall, had a great vibe. Service was exemplary. Our mains were fantastic - the duck (their signature dish) probably the best I have ever tasted including in France (and that's saying something). Pork and lamb were also excellent... read more

The food here was good. My T-Bone steak was excellent. My wife enjoyed her Barramundi. But we are a bit over places that crumb some feta on top of a salad, add a few olives and call it a Greek Salad. Also the Seasonal veg as a side should consist of more than a piece of squash quartered and four... More

The staff are so welcoming and the oysters incredibly fresh. My angel hair pasta with crab was amazing. Speedy service and a super happy chef singing while working. I love that the kitchen is within the main area of the restaurant so you can see the preparation of the food. I will definately be visiting here again when next in... More

As my partner and I both work in hospitality, we scarcely get to go out for dinner together so when we do it's a pretty big thing, and Arc of Iris did not disappoint! Not only was the service fantastic but the whole atmosphere was absolutely lovely, and the food!! The decadent aromas filling the air was nothing compared to... More

Myself and my partner visited arc of iris on a busy Saturday night. The food was amazing, I had the duck and my partner had the beef which he said was cooked perfectly. The staff were friendly and helpful, we would definitely recommend it

Went to this restaurant for our 1 year anniversary and it was perfection. The ambience and service was splendid but the duck was out of this world. My fiancee had the prawn pasta which was also top notch, we couldn't have asked for a better night! Will be back soon!

Margaret River was heaven for me - so many excellent places to eat, and this one did not disappoint. I came here with my family and all three of us enjoyed our meals, even a skeptical family member who used to run his own restaurant!

Took some friends to the Arc of Iris for dinner, we were left feeling very disappointed that we choses to go there. It was "Ok" but not great. Such a shame. Duck was dry and the salmon was over cooked. Spaghetti with the scallops sounded lovely but after eating it was just average. May of been nice if the wait... More
