The restaurant in the Discovery is delightful. Fine food, well served and superbly prepared. While the restaurant is expensive, for the quality of food in the remote community of Iqaluit, one can't complain. It is certainly the best place to eat here. Interesting country foods, local char, caribou and sometimes muskox, with good daily specials; a fine rabbit dish on... More

This was my first trip to Iqaluit and this was my first meal during my stay. The restaurant was recently updated and it was very reminiscent of restaurants in Ottawa. The service was slow and our waitress was not very friendly. The menu was small but had good choices for lunch. I was aware of the high prices of food... More

My first trip to Iqaluit and booked two, two night stays, one at each end of a canoe trip. Newly renovated, the rooms were well appointed and designed. My rooms were on an inner courtyard which added to the privacy and serenity. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating with every request for assistance. The location close to the airport...

Nice dining room and good service. Had the special and it was really excellent. Expensive but didn't feel like we were being ripped off because the food was so good.

The Quebecois feel is very apparent. This is a great place to have country foods and some unique eats, like duck! I always order from the "specials" because then you get either soup or salad too. Their soups are homemade and to die for!

Although the Discovery Lodge Restaurant doesn't only do French Cuisine, that is what I found to be the nicest part. Also, they have very nice lunch specials that are above and beyond the ordinary. The hotel itself is well kept up.

The "Disco" is clean and well run. It is located for easy foot access to the town and the food is very decent by southern standards - sometimes even excellent. can sometimes be noisy but staff is on hand to deal with any issues.

A very good restaurant with limited selection on the menu and very very high prices. I've not done a scientific survey, but I do believe these prices are the highest in Iqaluit. Don't get me wrong, the food is great, the service is good and the building itself is in great shape. But this is a place for that "special... More

Love their Fillet Mignon is the best. I like the atmosphere in there, it is very relaxing. Its a nice place to go on a date. Price is high but quality and service make up for it.

My colleague and I were looking for a good meal and some pleasant conversation and the restaurant at Discovery Lodge filled the bill. After ordering just one glass of a nice red, I ordered a steak with some trepidation, but although it may have been a tad on the thin side, it was tender, and the veggies were fresh and... More
