Quality Local Produce
The Margaret River Region is about wonderful local produce and here at the Arc of Iris, we are passionate about promoting and supporting our regional suppliers. There are seasonal variations and according to availability our local suppliers may change but we consistently support a cross section.
From quality local wines to the choicest cuts of free range meats to olive oil, cheeses, bread and even ice cream, we choose quality and we choose local.
About the Restaurant
Arc of Iris: A short history of a much-loved Icon!
The Arc of Iris is a Margaret River institution and over the years has been much loved by both locals and visitors alike. Established in 1990 it is Margaret River’s oldest restaurant and even today continues to evolve to retain its’ position as a premier eating, drinking, and dining experience in Margaret River.
Initially, there were few tables and chairs so customers simply bought their own along with them. For a long time drinks were served from old jam jars and there were old oil drums to sit on. When they got fed up with this; patrons went to the op shop and started to purchase mismatched crockery and cutlery and furniture and so the eclectic look of The Arc began to form.
The Arc has always been about the food and even today that holds true, but now the shabby chic look is being upgraded to reflect a warm and welcoming, but more luxurious feel. All of this will be complimented by a dedicated lounge bar, soon to open next door. Expected to open mid November 2018, here you will experience our Bistro and smoked meats menu, plus a wide selection of local tap beers, boutique spirits, cocktails, plus local wines.
