Not just another restaurant! Margaret Rivers oldest venue has just (late 2018) had a stunning makeover and expansion. The look and feel is pure luxury with something for everyone.

A seriously comfortable and inviting cocktail and lounge bar and bistro plus a large, inviting restaurant.

The Arc of Iris is a true Icon of the region! 

Established over 30 years ago it has just (late 2018) undergone an elaborate expansion and refurbishment. What was the old restaurant has been converted into a truly unique Lounge and cocktail bar. There is nothing else like it in the area! The new and expanded restaurant is now located in what was another restaurant next door. The overall look and feel is luxury “eclectic by design”. Despite not quite matching, it all comes together to create a wonderful homely feel! 

The seats are big and comfortable, so you can relax…enjoy your drinks, and take your time. Feel totally at home over a glass or two (or a bottle) of local wine. Sample a cocktail or local boutique spirits and craft beers from our well stocked bar. Let our mixologists do their magic and mix you something unique. All of the food from our restaurant is also available in the cocktail lounge but, the tables are probably more suited to the “bar favourites” of “bigger plates” from our menu. For that overall dining experience many of our guests now enjoy a drink in the bar prior to taking their tables in the restaurant to sample our full menu. 

"The Arc" now offers something for everyone from a $5 glass of wine at happy hour to local boutique spirits and liqueurs, tap and craft beers and a wonderful collection of cocktails and an extensive wine list showcasing the world class wineries of this region. Food is served in both the restaurant and the lounge bar and the selection is extensive!. Menu items start from just $9 all the way through to local, luxury cuts of free range meat. Then there is our smoker producing our unique smoked ribs and of course our famous free range duck is still on the menu! Now in smaller portions too! Fresh WA Maron is now available all the time and proving a very popular addition. 

Whatever your food or drink requirement you are sure to find it at Arc of Iris so, we look forward to welcoming you soon.

We don’t usually come down sound for our holidays but due to the recent virus we decided to do some wa travelling. We are so glad we stumbled across this place on google. The food was really amazing. My husband got the monster rib which he literally ate to the bone (and then wished he had more) and I had the crab pasta which was also quite nice. The beer and wine available was a good selection. I didn’t read the reviews before coming (which I always usually do) and I’m glad I didn’t. I’m not sure what others have experienced but I can say we definitely got great service and great food tonight. If you’re going to complain about price go to a fast food restaurant - I have no issues paying $5 for a beautiful kilpatric oysters because the quality of them was awesome! If we didn’t live so far away this would definitely be our number 1 place to come to. I know next time we are down here the first thing we will be doing is booking in! Jewel Rose

We really enjoyed our dinner. Nice and quiet atmosphere. Friendly staff great customer service. Highly recommended. We will visit again. ajantha wijekoon
My partner and I came here for dinner on a Sunday night during our Margaret River weekend getaway. The food was delicious, with lots to choose from and the staff were very friendly and accommodating, particularly our waitress Sarah. There was live music too, which made the experience even more enjoyable and romantic. We would eat here again. Sami Craven
Impeccable service from friendly caring staff. We really enjoyed the Arc of Iris! Props to Gareth, Jessica and Max. Food wise, I've died and gone to heaven. zOMG, it is superb. You must come here and dine. I'll let my photos tell the story.... Caveat: We were here during school holidays so it was full, but the only negative is that it was noisy. Perhaps this is not normally the case! Each meal is created with the best ingredients which reflects in the prices. That said, trust me and come and dine here! You'll love it! David PerthWA
Restaurant has a nice welcoming vibe to it and it was real easy to make a booking online. The pork ribs were tender and tasty, they didn't skimp on the sauce. The serving portions was also quite generous. The barramundi was cooked perfectly however the steak was just a bit more rare when we asked for medium. Serving staff were really friendly and attentive. This place is on the entertainment book so you can get 25% off up to $40. George Loo
