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.

This restaurant had a great atmosphere and live music. Great selection of drinks and to top it off the food was amazing. I had the duck, my wife had the seafood chowder. Our friends had the steak and ribs. All the food was cooked to perfection.

Our party of five were a bit put off by the exterior and cancelled our reservation. However after surveying the other offerings we persevered and ended up very happy. Roast duck, beef curry, pork ribs all superb. Also enjoyed the starters. Staff exceptional. Recommend to plunge in!

Food was lovely but......the first course came out really quickly and the dessert took 35 minutes to come. The staff did need more help. We were told on several occasions that they were understaffed. We didn't ask for coffee because of the time. I hope that you get the extra help team

If your ever in Margaret river you must have dinner here. The food is so good and the atmosphere is cosy. I had the garlic prawns that smelt so good and tasted even better. Forgot all about taking a photo of the food as I couldn’t wait to eat it
