We had dinner and breakfast at the Water's Edge as it is co located with our hotel. Food was well prepared and served in a reasonable time. Nothing spectacular but good sustenance

Have visited this restaurant before but not in >3 years to this trip. Very consistent. High quality food, service with nice menu choices. Well appointed dining room with good layout and elbow room. Nice to see good things can stay the same

I stayed at the Hotel Arctic, which is attached, and had all my breakfasts and several dinners at the Water's Edge during a recent trip to Iqaluit. I was very pleasantly surprised by how well the food was prepared. Could it be because there are so many Québécois in the kitchens in Iqaluit? Nothing spectacular but everything prepared well. If...

I don't want to sound like a food snob from the south, but for a steak and seafood restaurant - i had expected a little bit more. The calamari dish i ordered was chewy and over cooked, but the bread was delicious. The homemade upside-down berries cake was good. The waiter was super nice. The atmosphere was nice and cozy....

I have been in Iqaluit for five days, and snowed in because of a non-stop blizzard for three of those days. I am staying at the Arctic Inn, a nice and comfortable hotel across from the legislature, and have been eating all of my meals at the Water's Edge restaurant and the hotel pub - the Kickin' Caribou - which...

I am a fairly regular visitor to Iqaluit and have eaten at all of the featured restaurants (one as to .....) The Water's Edge - with the apostrophe in the correct place - is really a gem. Located centrally, although the town is not difficult, it is easy for visitors to frequent. The food is really pretty good; it is... More
