What a great experience. We came to Margaret river on holiday and will definitely recommend arc of iris to others! Great food, but even better was the service. The staff were attentive and took pride in their work. They were genuinely interested to know how our dining experience had been. Will be back.

Six of us went to the Arc of Iris for dinner. We were so impressed. The food was just brilliant and the service and atmosphere were great. Everyone really enjoyed their meals, which were very reasonably priced. It wasn't cheap but was very good value for money at around $60 per head for three courses each, with corkage and a tip. Yes, the Arc of Iris is BYO. A bonus. It is a popular place, so booking is essential.

Arc of Iris was recommended to us and described as "quirky". We would prefer to call it different in terms of its decor and ambience. More importantly, the food was superb -both for my wife-a vegetarian-and myself a dyed-in-the-wool carnivore. In fact, as I told the owner the fillet steak(s) I had there were the best I had eaten anywhere-and I have been grading my steaks world-wide for over 40 years. The first was so good I went back the next evening and it was just as good-beautifully tender and cooked to perfection (rare-medium). We shall certainly recommend AoI to our friends- and anyone else going to Margaret River.

What a great restaurant!
The local beef fillet with dauphinoise potato au gratin is one of the best steaks i've ever eaten and that's saying something.
my partner absolutely loved the roasted half duck with stir fry veggies
The place is a bit eccentric but I'm a nice quirky way, attentive staff, just a great placed to eat and kick back. The only down side is that's its byo.
All in all a highly recommended eatery!

This little ripper at the top of the town was a great find.

Really popular, we had the late sitting and shared the 'Tenderridge Beef Fillet' (due to a late lunch) that was amazing!

Their BYO policy is perfect after numerous cellar door purchases!!
