Want a great place to eat while in Iqaluit, the Granite Room at the Doscovery lodge is the place to go. The food is a bit pricey but I think it is well worth the money. And the resturant itself is a beautiful spot as well

One of the better restaurants in Iqaluit, very good quality but the prices go along with how isolated Nunavut is. Plenty of choices both from down south and locally. Be prepared for a high end meals with prices to match.

Wonderful dining near the shores of Frobisher Bay. Classic French cooking with a northern twist. From the Eggs Benedict with Arctic Char to Caribou and Char entrees for Lunch and Supper along with other meals you would expect in New York , London or Paris. The wait staff is exemplary, professional and personable. The only thing you'll regret is you... More

The Granite Room serves exquisite gourmet food - including locally-sourced fish and meats - that were outstanding. Should be recognized as one of Canada's top 100 restaurants.

I ate here because I was staying at the hotel and it was too cold to go out. Had dinner and lunch. Both were excellent. Food was on par with a high end restaurant down south. Service and environment was good but not high end. If in the south I would expect more. I found the dinner to be too... More

Overall the food and service is great. My partner loves the rack of lamb and I usually try and get the caribou medallion. Often times the staff are very professional and helpful.

I have been to Iqaluit several times and I always stay at The Discovery. If you want quality food with incredible flavor and traditional wild game from the land, it's the place. I have the Caribou, Bison and Arctic Char and every time it has been to die for. It is a must eat restaurant. All city restaurant owners should... More
