Love coming back to an old favourite, lovely to see the new renovations and expansion. The new bar is awesome, and the cocktails are delicious, try the Chilli Mango Daiquiri!! Can’t go past the smoked beef ribs either, the flavour is incredible!

Arc of Iris has had a makeover but still remains a great eating experience with the addition of some great cocktails and a good wine list. Modern, friendly and affordable restaurant with great staff especially LeeAnne.

I ordered the garlic prawns which are tasteless because of them being frozen out of the bag which are just like any pub meal! And more like scrimps. But my friend ordered the fish, that’s good and well presented. Hopefully they’ll get better as they’ll...More

Just opened and decor is great. However charging $14 for a glass of average wine is over the top - even for Margaret River! The share plate option doesn't really work and lacks imagination - who wants to share a baked potato!More

We found this place on tripadvisor and it was suggested that a book shouldn’t be judged by its cover. Too right. Until you actually step down into this place it doesn’t have a great deal of kerb appeal. Once in, it’s fine. The food is...More

We don’t have a set time to close the kitchen, it depends on the season and how busy it is on a night and what time the last booking is. If you are unsure, just give us a call. Thanks!
