The Arc of Iris is a funky eclectic restaurant in the main drag of Margaret River with great food, service and wine. All our meals including entree's and mains were delicious and full of flavour all served with a smile. Our only problem was that my husband was advised well after we ordered that they were out of duck, the... More

Lovely local find. The food was delicious, I had the lamb perfectly cooked to my liking and my partner had the prawn risotto, he said the best he had tasted and believe me he has tasted many! We will definitely be back next time we visit Margaret River.

Look, I don't leave reviews very often. I normally can't be bothered, which is pretty terrible considering how much I rely on them to make informed decisions about eating. This place deserves a review though. Dinner was rad - no complaints about the food. We had Amber as our waitress - she's just been promoted to a manager, and she's... More

Great service from our waitress Amber. My vegetarian pasta was delicious and full of lots of veggies. Dessert (chocolate fondant) was good, but not outstanding.

Scored a discount voucher but in the end would have happily paid full price for one of the best meals we've enjoyed over various trips to Margaret River. Friendly attentive staff added to the enjoyment. Even gave the thumbs up to a passing couple who took our advice and came in off the street. Wife said it was the best... More

6 of us dined at the restaurant last night. From the moment we walked in Sarah and her team made us feel like we were special. Food was some of the best we have had - duck p, pork, beef, venison and squid all received rave reviews. Melt in your mouth deserts and liquids rounded out a fantastic night. Service... More

My family and I enjoyed this food so much that I was compelled to write a review. My first ever review for any restaurant (I am in my 40's) The food was outstanding, perfectly cooked and delicious. I shook the hand of the chef and congratulated him on the 'best meal we have ever had together as a family'. Just... More

We (a party of four adults, plus a baby) came to this restaurant in Margaret River for an early (1830hrs) dinner, but had earlier eaten too much at lunchtime, so we were not looking for a large meal. After some consideration, we decided to confine ourselves mainly to the starters: two of us had squid and venison carpaccio, followed by... More

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.
