Restaurants & Cafes


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.

More information

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

Waitress incredibly knowledgeable about wine. Helped me select wine that I would like. Allowed me to taste 3 wines while choosing. Great Greek salad, large serving also. Very good barramundi. Fireplace. Historic building.

Casual atmosphere. Good music. Good value. Bartender was super friendly and talked us through the local brews on tap and made us feel very welcome. Add on some great food and it made for a good afternoon. Hope we can come back again soon from sunny Queensland!

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!
Enjoyed our dinner at Arc of Iris. The chef had no problem with our special request & our food was cooked just the way we liked it. Customer service was also friendly & tentative. Great dining experience.
