Wonderful restaurant with incredible service of our large table of 8.
The special Porterhouse steak was insanely good but by far and away the best dessert I have ever had was the Lemony Snicket - lemon sponge, meringue, warm lemon curd, cream and ice cream - SO divine !!

Great little place in Margaret River. A tasty menu, relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and a great wine list make this an excellent option for eating in Margaret River. Remember to book in advance as tables go early. And if you are hungry then order the 800g ribeye which is a beast. Char grilled to perfection it is an astonishingly good piece of meat. Be warned that you need a good appetite to finish!

Our ribeye is becoming a very popular favourite and you obviously discovered why

I have eaten at this restaurant before and the had a very pleasant experience. However, after booking on-line, and arriving to find that we would be seated in a cold, plastic tent on the footpath, we left again. I understand the business is trying to make more money, but this is not the way a good restaurant would do it. Shut down the tent!

After all of our 4 and 5 star reviews this was obviously very disappointing because we were at fault here and just need to admit it. We have a very strict policy of advising our diners, when they book with us, if we are already full inside then we let them know they will be on our terrace. This gives them the option to book for later or another date if they do not want to sit out there, Unfortunately the person who took your booking does not usually do it and was standing in for our manager and did not follow our strict proceedure. Obviously the reason we ave that in place is because we do not want people to book and find they are outside, without first having been advised of that.
We can only apologise most sincerely and accept that we were at fault. Some people do choose the terrace even if we have seating inside but, we do want them to have the choice.

Went for valentines dinner at 8pm, had nice lighting and even though it was understandably very busy it was fairly quiet where we sat inside.

I had the 800gm ribeye and it was sensational! Best steak I’ve had in a long time and great value at $65. The girlfriend had the pork belly which also tasted great but I can’t recommend the ribeye enough, thank you Arc the food was delicious :)

We had an excellent meal here and the staff were very friendly and efficient. We had booked and good job we did because it was quite busy. Excellent seafood very well prepared, wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.
