Best restaurants

Headed to Yellowknife for a vacation? Business Trip? No matter what your reason is for exploring our special capital you will need to be fueled and ready to go!

In this blog post we break down some local favs for you to dine at during your visit.

Twin Pine Diner

At the Arnica Inn’s Twin Pine Diner, executive chef/owner Robin Wasicuna offers “classic diner fare with a modern perspective.” Try his takes on chicken and waffles, mac ’n’ cheese and burgers. Hours are limited, and brunch is popular.

Bullocks Bistro

The ultimate diamond in the rough, Bullock’s Bistro captures the spirit of Yellowknife in its humble impressiveness. It may not look like much on the outside, but as they say, beauty comes from within. This hearty little bistro is a beloved hot spot for locals and travelers alike. You’ll soon discover why the walls of this quaint, rustic spot are covered in glowing testimonials from visitors around the world.

Woodyard Brew Pub

Only a 5 min walk from us you’ll find this local gem. It’s home to the NWT Brewing Company, the Northernmost craft brewery of its kind in the territories. This local gem is a brand that is recognized across Canada thanks to a focus on quality and a whole lotta creativity. Whether you like your beer light or dark, short on the malt or high on the hops, this brew pub has an impressive selection of quality craft beer. For a classic taste we recommend the KickSled Ale – a light bodied cream ale, perfect for a hot summer northern night.

The Cliff Cafe

This Museum Cafe brings you local dishes that showcase northern culture like the museum does itself. Think local fish and ingredients with a modern twist. We definitely recommend making a day of it with a visit to the museum.

Dancing Moose Cafe

The Dancing Moose has stunning ocean views that can be enjoyed inside or out. Have a seat at the picture-window tables, or enjoy the fresh air outdoors where more seating is available. Feel free to pack a picnic lunch and grab a fresh backed dessert inside. Either way, spectacular scenery awaits.

No matter where you choose to eat we hope you have a delightful time! As always our friendly staff are happy to assist you with any local recommendations! Enjoy your stay.
