Amazing food and fabulous service. The entrée of fried pork belly was incredible. The only bad thing about it was that as a daily special, I can't have it every time. The Asian duck for mains was one of the best meals I have ever had. Truly wonderful. We also had the oxtail pasta which was deliciously hearty. Dessert was... More

A table for two without reservation on a Wednesday evening. No problem - the Arc was about 3/4 full and happy to accommodate us. The staff were very friendly and attentive and overseen closely by Jacky who is clearly heavily invested in ensuring a successful venture. The menu is surprisingly extensive and varied. Variations were accommodated with a smile, eg... More

We dined here using a voucher; sometimes when using vouchers you get less enthusiastic service, but our waitress was lovely. Food was very good (had the prawn risotto, barramundi, & pork belly), we all cleaned our plates. My friend was a bit disappointed with the red wine selection & recommendations, but otherwise it was a lovely dinner experience.

Had a discount voucher to use on a trip to the region last week. Accepted happily, certainly no perception of lessened service. Quaint style to restaurant, based on humble beginnings, but the food was excellent with generous serves, larger than we really needed but worth the effort to finish and then waddle out in most undignified fashion. Not a large... More

My partner and I went to Margaret River for a nice break away. We ate in the Arc of Iris and we were absolutely bowled over with the food we received. By far the nicest meal I have had in Australia in my two years here. Desert was also beyond our expectations. Highly recommend this restaurant.

A local resident recommended the twice cooked duck, so both my husband and I ordered this dish and we weren't disappointed. It was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the service was outstanding. We had a really enjoyable night and will certainly go back to Arc of Iris.

After a day of wine tasting and seeing the sights of this great part of WA we turned up to the restaurant and checked in to find that we weren't on the booking list. Now this was confusing and the staff were more than happy to find a table for us as we explained we called in the morning to... More

We came here after a day of tourist activities in and around the area. From the outside it looks like a fairly ordinary cafe type venue. Inside the shabby chic theme is a little outdated the food however was very good. The garlic prawns as an entree were delicious. The specials were lovely and the cheese board wonderful. Definitely worth... More

My partner and I went away for a getaway weekend to Margaret River at the weekend. We were anticipating the best when we had seen such good reviews for the Arc of Iris, however our views were soon to be changed forever. The staff were very friendly on arrival and I couldn't fault them. Then the cracks appeared staff knowledge... More

We are genuinely very sorry that you did not enjoy your experience with us as much as you should have done but, also sorry that you did not tell us when you were with us as it is very difficult to simply respond to a negative review when there is so much that we can do in the restaurant if...

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.
