Read great reviews but this place. Service is good but good is average. I m sure you can find other options easily along MRR. Tried Miki's Open Kitchen (pre booking needed). I would recommend MOK for dinner and Margaret River Bakery (for breakfast). - cc

It's nice to find a restaurant that is not shy about presenting game meat on the menu.Both the duck and venison were cooked perfectly, came out hot and fresh and were accompanied by a very tasty combination of vegetables.

Thank you Magi, as you discovered our focus is top quality cuts of some more unusual meats. They are all free range and local, which makes the difference as well as being perfectly cooked.

We were recommended to Arc of Iris. The fried camembert was very delightful and my husband and I shared the 400 days aged beef. Yes, you read it right. 400 days. It was yummy. Will return for sure.

Two great dishes there, with the camembert being one of our most popular entrees, perfect matched with that free range beef. Thank you so much for sharing your experience
