I would highly recommend the Arc of Iris. Its eclectic menu is very well executed and the staff handled special dietary requirements very well. Our waitress had an excellent knowledge of the menu and the chef came out to make final checks of the allergies. There is a BYOB policy for wine with a $12 corkage fee which is good... More

Dinner was ok but the meals were missing something. The stuff were amazing and the service was very quick.

As most of our reviews for our food are five star it is difficult to respond. We always like to use reviews to improve what we do, where we can but, there is no information here: What did you eat? what did you feel was lacking? Obviously we cannot cater for individual tastes. Thank you for mentioning our great staff... More

Food was average for the price, service was pleasant enough but not worthy of high rating. Decor was lacking any cohesive approach and the place needs a bit of a spruce up.

After a log run of 4 and 5 star reviews we are natural disappointed with anything less, it does appear though that your query is with our decor. There is a long history behind our decor and there is information on every table referring to this, which is much appreciated by our guests. I am sorry if you did not... More

We have been visiting Margaret River for nearly 20 years and have somehow never msnaged a meal at this very well known restaurant. It has either always been booked out or we haven't had the time. Well finally decided to give it s try...and we were not disappointed. We invited another couple who also had not dined at this restaurant.... More

We stumbled upon Arc of Iris and decided to give it a try. We are happy we did. The wait for the food and bill took some time but the food is yummy so it does justified the wait. The waitress were friendly and the chef came out to check if we enjoyed the food. I would recommend to anyone... More

I have been a fan of The Arc of Iris for a long time but they have just changed their menu which can always be tricky! Not this time - hooray! The favourites are still on the menu but there are some amazing new dishes that I will have to try instead of having my favourite duck main course! Value... More

We chose a 700 gram ribeye and barramundi from the specials list. Both excellent with friendly and efficient service from the open kitchen. Also had a bottle of Margaret River After Hours Shiraz which was very good. Small restaurant so need to book in advance but definitely worth a visit.
