A great place for breakfasts

My gentlemen's group goes here for our breakfast meetings once a month and the food and the ambience never fails. I find the service excellent and the food great.

Very friendly service and a great greeting. Good advice on menu choices and on the limited wine list. Food was large and mainly good, desserts a little heavy and lacked style. Pricing was typical for the city. Would go back!

Had a great breakfast here with a colleague one morning. For $20 with tax and tip I had a large breakfast with eggs, toast, preserves, bacon (lots of it!), homemade hash browns, fruit (not the freshest - wish I had swapped it for more hash browns). Friend had the breakfast bagel. Service was great.

The dinning room is square and clean, but nothing spectacular. The waiters are nice and attentive, and the portions are reasonable. It is definitely on the pricier side, we didn't order pizza but a nearby table did and it was large and looked good. We just had dessert and I don't think I'd go back for that, nothing wrong with...

Very good, but pricey, food both for dinner and breakfast. I had a very nice arctic char for dinner here, as well as a few very filling breakfasts. Good service, and a comfortable room with interesting art on the walls. The only negative would be that the view out the windows are the parking lot behind the hotel.

Other people seem to really like this restaurant. Maybe it was the other reviews that raised my expectations too highly but I was disappointed with my meal here. Prices are high, yes, but that was expected as this is Iqaluit after all. I found the dinner menu was very limited and I had a difficult time making a choice. Although... More

Great place to go if you are looking to buy art directly from artists. Food is average and so is the service but it can depend on the day of the week! In season they have caribou or char to taste local flavours. Recommended!! (even if just for the experience and just have a salad or chocolate cake!)

Recently visited for a weekday lunch. There were plenty of tables to choose from and the staff were helpful, accommodating. there was a good range of food choices from salads, to wraps, game burgers and butter chicken. My friend enjoyed the butter chicken and I had the Artic Char wrap with the soup of the day which was Beet Soup.... More

A solid effort for good, locally-inspired meals that highlight northern ingredients. Service is attentive and the menu extensive. The only draw back are the limited kitchen hours which shuts down at 1:30PM for lunch due to local regulations. This being the north, however, northern pricing is to be expected.

Make reservations for dinner, they can get quite busy. Ate at The Gallery, Frobisher Inn, several times (breakfast, lunch, dinner) during my week in Iqaluit. The decor is nothing special but the menu is special. The food is prepared and presented to a high standard. Congratulations to the Executive Chef, Josef Szakacs, and his team. Delicious and good quantity. Do... More
