Quirky little restaurant with excellent food and warm & friendly service. It would be easy to walk past the unassuming frontage, with its hotchpotch decor & not realise what a gem this place is. The duck was amazing and my husband was equally impressed with his garlic prawns & 700g rib eye steak. We had the Cassata & Eton Mess... More

Perfect meal, every course unique and delicious. Steak is a must - a massive hunk of meat!! Perfect finishing with the chocolate pudding and Baileys - in food heaven. Great service

Have been to the arc many times over the years and this time did not disappoint. The food was amazing and the service excellent. Served by a beautiful waitress from Brazil she made our dining experience even more amazing. Will definitely be back to the arc.

We've always liked going here and this time was no exception as the food was very nice. Only issue is that it's on the expensive side for what you get in Margaret River.

Thank you for your 4 star review, we really appreciate it. No, we are not cheap as our focus is on quality, especially local and Free Range. Obviously those products are very expensive to source and that has to be reflected in our pricing. We do look at and discuss cheaper cuts and options but, so far it has never... More

Amazing! My husband and I went for dinner and shared barramundi and duck. We thought the barramundi was delicious, but then... the duck. It melted in our mouths. Scrumptious! Would come back for the duck alone.

Great service and amazing local produce. The 700g rib eye was possibly the best cut of steak i have ever eaten. And it was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend you take the family for a treat.

Yes, we are getting quite a reputation for that ribeye steak and very often sell out of it! It is free range from a variety of WA farmers and is absolutely top quality as you found out for yourself. More

Everything is fantastic about arc. Amazing Octopus for a starter. We had barramundi for dessert because it was too good to not have 2!

We had a lovely dinner last night. The service was outstanding, in terms of food my friends had duck which was delicious, barramundi also very good. I had two starters the Japanese baby squid and carapcio. The squid was unfortunately very rubbery the accompanying salad however very tasty and original. Carpaccio was first class it could have had a splash... More

Just as a note, things like chilli and olive oil can easily be brought to you if you just ask us. That is why we check back. We want your meal to be right for you but, cannot bring you what we do not know you want. Very sincere apologies about the toilets though, it is a real puzzle as... More

Went here for dinner on Thursday Night, shared a few entrees, had the vegetarian risotto, it came with heaps of veggies I almost couldn't eat it all! Was stoked, finished it all off with the sticky date pudding! Couldn't fault anything 😜

For a family of four with various dietary restrictions, we were so impressed with the quality of the food and friendliness of the staff on our first visit that we dined here every one of our five nights in Margaret River. It would be hard to find a better restaurant anywhere in the world, and we wish we knew somewhere... More
