Arimia is a very special boutique winery, restaurant and guest house in a magical setting in the Wilyabrup region, offering an exceptional dining experience, cellar door tastings, produce for sale, and farm tours.
Arimia operates entirely off the grid and with an ethos of sustainable and regenerative produce to restaurant practices. The farm is certified organic and incorporates biodynamic principles to nurture and grow most of the produce used in the restaurant, with a menu that changes regularly depending on what is freshly available.
While producing a range of outstanding high quality wines, Arimia are farmers first. The driver isn’t the wine or food itself but the positive impact the farm has on place through the production of wine and food. The restaurant and cellar door are a celebration of place: from the bottled wine and olive oil to the pork and trout dished up on the deck. Everything on this property is a raw material with which something beautiful is produced – the belief is reciprocity - farming with a long-term philosophy: a commitment to improving the land for multiple generations to come.
Arimia is a 56ha property spanning both sides of Quininup Road in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, just 2km from the Indian Ocean. The Estate is now a sustainably managed and organically certified mixed farm, with 8.4ha of vineyard, 2ha of olive grove, 1,000sqm of vegetable gardens, pigs, sheep and trout. This is the Arimia from which award-winning wines and head chef Evan Hayter’s cutting edge food comes.

Had a lovely 3.5 hrs lunch experience at Arimia Estate on Sunday. The estate isn't as big as others but it was very cozy and has it's own little farm area. One of the staff offered to let my kid feed the chickens and that made his day. The team was very friendly and attentive even though it was a small team (only 4 staff). We had a 6 course meal and every dish was well presented, not to mentioned absolutely delicious. I thought the portions were just right and not too overwhelming compared to other wineries.
All the produce was from their own farm and very fresh. My kid ate so much salad because he said it was 'so yummy'. He rated his pasta 10/10 and he rated it higher than his Italian granny's pasta which is saying a lot...he is a mini food critic. What impressed us the most was the 'parsley ice cream' as it was so unexpected and it was divine! If you are looking for huge massive portions to fill up your belly then this is not your winery. If you like fine dining with a touch of Japanese influence then you will appreciate this place. By the time we ordered our coffee we were told that we might have to wait a little longer but then it came after 5 mins!
We really had a lovely time here and we look forward to the Chef pushing and experimenting more with unusual ingredients. The estate itself might not be as impressive as other major ones but we definitely left Arimia with a smile and a happy belly.

WOW! What an experience!
Five of us were sharing a special birthday in Yallingup, so we decided to spoil ourselves with lunch at Arimia Estate after reading positive reviews and a previous menu.
The experience exceeded all our expectations; with a tranquil location and lovely architecture creating the perfect background ambiance for the stunning but simply presented dishes. This was all brought together by the wonderful and knowledgeable front-off-house staff who provided a very friendly service without being intrusive, and explaining the subtleties of each dish in an unpretentious manner.
Each dish became our new favourite and the subject of much discussion at the table and with the wait-staff, as the full menu is kept secret and revealed only course by course. When pressed to decide our final favourite, we universally agreed on the crayfish, crab and grapefruit linguini. The combination of the sweet crayfish and crab, slightly tart grapefruit, popping roe, and al dente handmade pasta was as close to a perfect dish as we have ever eaten.
We were able to take a leisurely walk through the house-garden, between the entrees and main course, where our ingredients had been freshly picked, and speak with the gardener. She was happy to take time to tell us about the various plants growing there and the challenges of supplying the seasonal ingredients. We were even invited to taste the multitude of tomato varieties still on the vines.
The overall experience made for a perfect day and we would go back again in a heartbeat to try another delicious and stunning seasonal menu.

Underwhelmed by the food for the price, although it was perfectly plated it lacked flavour/seasoning (to our taste). Service was fine and the wines were lovely in beautiful surroundings. Disappointing

Spent 3hrs at Arimia yesterday for a six course degustation. While on a four day break we thought we’d invest on one high-end experience, other places were fully booked so decided to revisit Arimia after many years. We were underwhelmed by the experience, it wasn’t bad, it just didn’t match its price tag. The food was interesting, well presented and inventive. Perhaps a little under seasoned at times. The French waiters were reserved, but friendly and attentive. The manager offered advice on wine at the start of the meal, but seemed disinterested, I would say rude but I don’t think that was her intention. The restaurant, the music choice, the general vibe all lacked atmosphere and we left feeling a bit “meh!”. We did buy a bottle of Vermentino which was delicious.
