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.

We really loved the flavour combination at this little restaurant. My husband had the duck dish - a full half duck - and was very happy with it. I had the venison dish which was delicious - one of the best meals I had whilst in the Margaret River region. This restaurant pays attention to the quality of their ingredients... More

Our regular place on all our trips to Margaret River. The food is superb, the wait staff friendly and the atmosphere just lovely, warm and welcoming. We take our visitors from UK here and without exception they are impressed. The food never disappoints. Worth the drive from Perth !!!

We went for a birthday dinner with friends, we booked well in advance as we were taking two service dogs. The staff were very friendly and the service was more than adequate. On a whole the starters were good, though the oysters Kilpatrick I had, were a little disappointing too much Worcester sauce overpowered the taste. For main the duck... More

Thank you for your lovely review, we enjoyed your party,the service dogs were certainly a novelty.

Food and service were fab. We shared the Camembert stater which was lovely. I had belly pork which was crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, perfect.

Thank you so much for your fabulous 5 star review. Sorry that the trifle was not exactly to your liking, the reviewer after you actually states how much they loved that same trifle. This just illustrates that no matter how good the food it is impossible to cater exactly to every individual taste and what one person loves another will... More
