The service was great the evening we visited the Arc of Iris. The ladies were friendly and attentive.
The food was good to very good. We had scallops with black pudding which was excellent, garlic prawns which were nice but they were is a creamy garlic sauce which wasn't spicy - for us a bit too heavy. As mains we had barramundi and prawn risotto which was both great.
The interior is very nice and rustic.

We had a fabulous meal, the place is very quirky, has a great history but is rather pricey. I had Oysters Kilpatrick as a starter which were delicious and for our main I had the Barramundi which was superb and my husband had the 800g rib, this too was perfect but really should be a shared dish, it was huge but we were given the uneaten portion to take home with us. As for the service, brilliant, with a bottle of wine, liqueur coffee and normal coffee $210, you can't fault this place!

Thanks for your lovely review, no we are not cheap but then our focus is local, top quality free range meat so, obviously it comes at a price as our ingredients are very expensive to source.

Couldn’t fault our experience at Arc of Iris tonight. Started off with goats cheese haloumi for entree, followed by barramundi & risotto for mains. Easily the best meal we’ve had in a very long time, our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable & friendly. We loved the relaxed atmosphere & quirky feel. Our last night in Margaret River was made perfect by the whole experience. Will definitely come back!

Hi Katelyn, thanks for your lovely review. That Haloumi is a new addition to our menu and is fast becoming a firm favourite. Glad you enjoyed your evening so much.

Had dinner here with family while visiting Margaret River. First night they were fully booked but we managed to book a table the following night.

Great service and food and friendly staff. If you have the entertainment book, there's a voucher in there for discount.

Kids had fish and chips while we had the steak and the pork belly. Well cooked. Will visit again the next time we go to Margaret River.

Road side parking only .
Small outlet to accomodate about 30 guests .
Service is good but can be very noisy .
Wine served is average .
The king prawns and Risotto are very nice .
Disappointed with the duck cooked in Asian style though
Maybe could enjoy more with a smaller group outing

Oh Wow! we are so surprised at the comment that our wine list is average? We recently changed it, it is 90% drawn from local wineries and includes top rated wines and some unusual ones, including biodynamic options. The feedback on the new wine list has all been so positive, this is a surprise. We do have a car park out the back and there is a large car park opposite us. There is definitely on road parking but, plenty of car parks too.
