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.

Food was first class and complemented by fine service. Not sure what it was but I thought the place lacked 'ambience'. Good place to eat and maybe it will develop.

Just had dinner at the Arc with my partner and it was faultless! I'm going totally alcohol free and the staff were very accommodating with my dessert in that regard, as well as being friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The menu is extensive - and beautifully local - with something for everybody - and no typical 'pub grub' offerings which is... More

Booked a table for Monday night dinner. I ordered the carpaccio for starters and the rack of lamb for mains. Carpaccio was delicious and rack of lamb which had four pieces was slightly charred but still very delicious. Staff were attentive and food was fairly prompt. Will return.

It was a wonderful surprise to find this great restaurant on Living Social while we were visiting Margaret River. The menu choices are varied. We had the venison which was cooked medium rare and melted in the mouth and the duck which was double cooked and had a medley of flavours which made consumption pleasurable. Dining here will not disappoint.

I had a spur of the moment dinner at The Arc of Iris on Monday night and left feeling as though I had just had a gourmet experience. I love when a last min decision turns into a night to be remembered because your expectations are blown out of the water. The Scallop entree with Chorizo is a must and... More

I was very impressed with the service, there were a couple of vegetarian dishes on the menu, I didn't fancy either of them. I asked the waitress if I could have an alternative and the chief comes out and discusses options...very impressed. My dinner was absolutely delicious.

Lazy Sunday night dinner with friends to end a relaxing long weekend. Greeted by the lovely Dutch fiance of the chef, it set the tone for the evening, relaxed and informal. Food was good too! four different dishes - rack of lamb, vegetarian pasta, Pork Belly and duck and Mango salad, all generous serves and beautifully presented. No room for... More

The menu at Arc of Iris takes on a slightly Asian slant. I started with the deep fried camembert which was excellent. A golden brown crispy crumb encasing soft gooey camembert, aided by a sharp salad and the sweetness from the fruit coulis. The twice cooked duck was superb. Lovely sweet Asian sauce with a much too generous serve of... More
