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.

My wife and I are not from the area so we didn't know what to expect from Arc of Iris but we were pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food is very high and promptly delivered. The wait staff are very friendly and catered to our every need. The prices are reasonable and the cosy rustic decor delivers a very pleasant dining experience. Arc of Iris thoroughly deserves it's high rating kzn 165r

The service was great and the food was magnificent. The restaurant felt cosy and romantic and had a relaxing atmosphere with a beautiful fore place. Outside they had heaters and blankets available as it was cold out. The pork belly and the duck were to die for 😍 Kylie Earnshaw

I ate the special of the evening, ‘Butter Chicken curry’ I’m a huge fan of curries whilst eating and making them regularly, but there was something extra special about the Arc of Iris version of the dish. Highly recommend checking the place out Daniela Dharma Perkins

Ate here on a Friday night and had a really nice time and couldn't find fault with either the good service and quality of food. I had a dish of soft shell crab tacos from the specials board and they each had a very good portion of crab and were delicious. My husband had the Pork belly and was very pleased with his choice of meal. There is a little bar attached to the restaurant and they had a singer/pianist who we thought was excellent. Yes we would definitely eat here again when we return to Marg's. Glenda Coulthard
