We hadn't booked into this busy restaurant but they managed to fit us in. I'm glad they did. Whilst the ambiance is quirky, the food was amazing. The staff were very helpful and the chef was open to variation due to diet restrictions. Highly recommended.

I took my partner to Margaret River for her birthday and was determined to give her an impeccable birthday dinner. And did I ever make the right choice choosing Arc or Iris. It's a quirky location with mismatched chairs and patterned walls but lovely friendly and attentive staff. The food is amazing. I had the pork belly and my partner... More

Accommodated my wife and I with a table for two outside on a balmy summer night with less than 15 mins notice. A mixed doz oysters to kick off with. Natural went down easy, the chilli-gin-ginger were excellent and had a real kick, and, after a slight delay in being served, the Kilpatrick did not disappoint. Great start! Service was... More

My husband and I had a great evening at Arc of Iris tonight. I had the crab pasta which was lovely, my husband had the duck which was gorgeous! We shared the sticky date pudding for dessert which was as lovely as our main meals. The staff were fantastic - attentive, quick and very friendly. We'll definitely go again!

We were lucky to get the last table, so if you are considering I would suggest booking Friendly service, interesting menu, good local wines (BYO with corkage available) We ate fillet steaks (which was cooked exactly to order) and pork belly which was also expertly cooked It felt a little pricey for relatively simple fare but this may be the...

We came here for dinner last Saturday for a birthday celebration and were absolutely blown away with the food, it was delicious. The service was incredible as well, we had a number of dietary requirements and the chef was able to accommodate all our requests, he even came out during the meal to make sure everything was ok. I would... More

We visited on a Sunday evening for dinner. The service was friendly and attentive. The menu looked great. The camembert and squid entrees were nice, but it was certainly the pork belly and duck which won us over, the meats were perfect. Whilst the meats were great everything else was just OK. The decor was really nice but it did... More

We returned for the fourth year, and have never been disappointed. A good varied menus, they are willing to let you share plates,two of our group shared a pasta dish and it was still too big for them. There beef is excellent and the wine list impressive.

Great atmosphere and a couple of cracking dishes that the locals always go back for, being the pork belly and duck. Just brilliant! Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food, wine list is extensive and suits the various dishes. We were served by Amber who impressed us with her friendliness, knowledge of the food, location and the wines.

You are correct, the Pork and Duck, both free range, are our most popular dishes. Thank you for mentioning Amber, staff always appreciate being acknowledged for doing a good job. More
