Hands down the best food in Iqaluit. I went here with my boyfriend and mom and our meal was over 400$. Be prepared to pay the highest price to receive the best food. Would recommend the discovery to any travelers looking to taste some arctic dishes.

I eat here when I can. Meals are very good, the staff is friendly and the meals are moderately priced.

I have not been here for a couple of years, but once again the food was excellent - the caribou tender and delicious - the wine list fascinating and the service impeccable. Nunavut is not overloaded with fine food, but the Granite Room stands up against any other restaurant in its genre. I shall be back!

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.
