Pub style dinner in an almost restaurant setting. Have the sirloin if you're choosing steak and I noticed they did one with calamari but I think you have to ask for it specially. They were doing Christmas in July so the decor was to suit - no problem really - but we ate a la carte. Service was good is... More

We had an enjoyable meal at D'arcy Arms recently, only complaint was the doors were open and it was very cold inside! Great Service but would have been more enjoyable had we all not felt the cold inside the restaurant.

If you love your Guinness, than look no further. One of my favourite places to just have a quiet brew. The restaurant is cute and of course, just great Irish food. Staff are always welcoming and friendly.

Our family loves D'Arcy Arms. My mother-in-law is Irish and this place always reminds her of home. She has been going there for a long time now on most St Patrick's Day & she knew the original owners of the place & a few after that too. Nowadays with our busy schedule, we don't visit as often but when we... More

Arrived in the evening and the reception desk was unattended and difficult to find. Eventually checked. Rooms clean but the bare minimum offered. Location good. Reasonably priced for surfers paradise but you pay for what you get.

This is a very quaint Irish pub with a lovely atmosphere. The food is very good with lots of fresh veggies.. The drinks can be a bit expensive but overall it's a great place for one or two on the cool new back deck. In winter the tavern atmosphere is enhanced with a great open fire and with a guinesse...

We had dinner there and I was first blown away by the extreme cost for pub steaks ($34) at such a small basic bar. I got a parmi to be cheap and it salad consists of those horrible green weeds and a short clip of cabbage and onion. I've had better chips frozen from a supermarket. There were way too... More
