Description: 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. We are Fully licensed and our great wine list is drawn from local wineries . If your looking for an exceptional dining experience with tastes that will bring you back time and time again join us at The Arc of Iris and discover why we're the locals best kept secret.

Stayed 2 nights in Margaret River and ate dinner here both nights. The food is excellent with equally good wines, suggestions for which are given with each dish. The staff are friendly and helpful and the only reason it's not getting a 5 star rating is that on the first night our main course took 45 minutes to reach us.... More

The food was alright and the service is average. Kinda overpriced but we figured since it is a weekend trip we could have a good treat. There are other restaurants along the street and would probably go to the others the next time. The sticky date pudding was quite okay.

Last night was our first night of working with our fully licensed menu so yes, it was harder for the staff than usual we were all finding our feet and there was a lot of extra work involved so other aspects of service may have suffered a little, although we were not actually aware of it with so many customers...

Booked at short notice for a Sunday evening meal and were lucky to get a table as it was busy all evening. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere here and I loved the eclectic decor with mismatched tables, chairs, clocks and tiles! Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Great menu - there is no 'kids menu' but you can order... More

Have been to this restaurant a few times over the years, and I enjoy it every time!! Loved being able to BYO some beautiful Margaret River wine. My Mum and I shared some yummy oysters for entree, I had the pasta prawns which was al dente and very tasty with succulent prawns and a great mix of flavours. My Mum... More

We have travelled to Margaret river many times and have never been in this restaurant before. On this visit we thought that we would try our some of the better placed and checked trip advisor for the top restaurants. We have visited Voyager, Mikies Japanese and Arc of Iris on this visit.

The Duck!! The two exclamation marks on the menu give you the clue. Having eaten duck all over the world this one was just so good. BYO means that we went to a local bottle shop and got a local wine that was equally wonderful. Considering the quality of the food and the general prices of Western Australian restaurants we...

The food here was superb and the service very personal without being pushy. Being a BYO restaurant means it is great value for money.

Four of us had three entrees to share, mains and one person had desert. At over $240 (not including alcohol) we thought the price was a little steep given the quality of the food. It was all ok. The spring rolls were crispy and flavoursome, but the bread was literally burnt black and still smoking in parts when delivered to... More
