The focus is all on the food serving luxury cuts of free range meat with local wines, fresh seafood and Italian pasta as well as that famous duck and venison and that sought after 700g prime ribeye steak 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 open EVERY NIGHT from 6pm.

“Quirky and Delicious”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

This restaurant has quirky decorations and an eclectic menu. We had a seafood spring roll and a duck and pistachio terrine as entrées. Both were tasty. I had the lamb with ratatouille which was flavorful. My husband's spicy fettuccini with clams was excellent. The restaurant is BYOB so come prepared.

“Always a favourite”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

One of the best restaurants in Margaret River. Fantastic hostess and staff. The steak just melts in your mouth, and the Pork belly is to die for. Great that its a BYO so you can sample one of your favourite bottles of wine that you have collected from the local vineyards.

Thank you for your review ..much appreciated.
In regards to the service that night... yes, we admit that it was a little slow, but it is extremely difficult to find good staff in Margaret River to work evenings and we are trying to rectify this ASAP.
Thanks again and kind regards from all of us here at the ARC :-)

“Yummmm”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We were recommended to visit Arc of Iris by a number of different wineries and we weren't disappointed.

We took a great red with us, and tried the duck and the pork belly - I have to say, this is probably the best meal we had while we were in Margaret River. The others wineries were good - but this was yum.

Open Tuesday to Saturday - don't miss it.
