Located at the top of Margaret River’s main street in a newly transformed space, de’sendent is a new intimate refined dining restaurant which opened in early 2024. Owners Ann Spencer and Executive Chef Evan Hayter are behind the project, which is the next incarnation of their previous winery venture Arimia Estate, but distinctly different.

The new 35-seat restaurant was born from the passion and vision behind Arimia Estate, which built a strong reputation for its unwavering dedication to growing and sourcing high-quality, local, organic produce from suppliers who cared deeply for the land. Chef Evan Hayter is deeply passionate about where his ingredients come from – how they’re grown and reared, and ensuring they’re sourced from like-minded producers who share Arimia’s values. de’sendent is the evolution of an important story, and represents Evan and Ann’s determination to share their dining philosophy with the world. Guests can expect high-end West Australian ingredients including abalone, full-blooded Waygu beef, marron and uni (sea urchin), sourced from passionate, small-batch suppliers. A diverse wine list showcases premium local, national and global wines that complement the calibre of the food. The name de’sendent signifies the cultivation of a new culinary chapter for business partners Hayter and Spencer, as well as treasured family ties.
