Andrea certainly runs a very efficient restaurant.
Locals seem to love it and there is a constant stream of people coming and going.
Staff are very professional and friendly and whilst the food quality isn't innovative and doesn't rise to any spectactular levels, it still makes for a very enjoyable night.
It is expensive by east coast standards but then so is everything else in the region and western Australia.

I have eaten many meals in many places and really, the Arc is as good as the best of them. We shared about four entrees and all were fresh, appetizing and beautifully presented. The venison was definitely special. The wine glasses sparkled so we were happy to pay corkage and we took the wine we really wanted..

Andrea and Staff know how to make this experience one to talk about in a relaxing setting.
Many signature dishes are on the menu with great Gluten Free options available which are delicious! The home made GF bread is also a winner of which Andrea has perfected. (My friends who are not gluten intolerant enjoy it too!)
Being a local, I love to eat there on a regular basis as you never get a bad meal. It's hard to say what is the best to choose from the menu as all starters. mains are deserts are just so tasty.
I must admit I love the squid or venison carpaccio for starters.
The Duck is a signature main that is hard to go past and I always laugh when at times the whole table order the duck!
The chef will assist where needed if a special request arises which makes the experience all the better.
Being BYO is excellenbt as you can bring the wine of choice to complement a fine dining experience. Until next weeks visit! Enjoy... Oh - Bookings highly RECOMMENDED as you may miss out!

Visited for the first time tonight with some friends, had the lamb for a main which was fantastic, friends raved about the duck and pork belly, we also had a nice choc and hazelnut cake to share which was presented lovely. Such yummy food and fast service, friendly waitresses and loved the pretty lights through the restaurant, made it very relaxing. A tad pricey but the food is so worth it, will definitely be back, can't wait to try the seafood platter !

The menu is limited, but interesting. The seafood platter for two was amazing, super fresh with great flavours ... and the desserts are to die for! Make sure you leave room - and you probably won't want to share :)
