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.

We dined for New Year’s Eve and enjoyed every dish on the table. The service was top notch. We enjoyed it that much we booked to go back a couple of nights later and also thoroughly enjoyed that. The only downside was that they had sittings either 6pm or 8.30pm and when you want to relax and enjoy the night... More

I am so glad that you enjoyed your experience at The Arc so much. With regard to the two sittings, obviously we are a small restaurant and tables are in high demand so we need to run two sittings. However, we do have a strict policy of advising the first sitting, when they book, that the table will probably be... More

We ordered venison carpaccio, lamb rack, venison fillet and bread. We were very disappointed with the bread serving for $10 we 4 small, thin half slices,dukka and oil. The venison carpaccio was very nice, but was only sparingly placed around salad. We would have preferred to pay more and get more of the meat. The lamb rack was very nice.... More

My husband and I had Easter dinner at the Arc of Iris and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals, the food was great. The service was professional and friendly. We enjoyed it so much that we thought about eating there again on Monday night, but they were closed.
