Perfect for that late-night poutine fix!

Hubby and I spent a long weekend exploring Montreal's Plateau neighborhood, and thoroughly enjoyed this gem of a hopping 24-hour diner! With over 30 variations on the Quebecoise staple of fries + gravy + cheese, plus a great selection of microbrews and cider--not to mention a full diner menu--this... read more

This was my first experience with Poutine. The dine-in line was incredibly long, but we got takeout and were able to get our food immediately, hop in a cab, and get back to our place. I got a regular size and it lasted me for 5 meals! It was deeeelicious.

Tons of options to mix up your poutine experience. The fries were really good, curds weren't squeaky so not as fresh. Very busy place with slightly cramped seating, but service was good. Cash only, annoying, but they had an ATM. Funky atmosphere, cool decorations (tree branches stretching across ceiling). English menu available which made it much easier. Worth a stop.

Great place, best poutine I've had. Good service but a little slow due to how packed this place can get. Get there early because this place can get a very long lineup outside

I'm not really into poutine. I never understood the idea of putting french fries and gravy sauce together. French fries are supposed to be crisp! But that was before I got to knew La Banquise. I've been to some popular poutine places in Montreal, and was never satisfied, EXCEPT here. their menus are so creative and all of them are... More

Busy, neat decor, great food. The $12 cab ride was worth it. Recommended to anyone looking for great poutine

Delicious poutine! I was told to go here by my friend who has visited Montreal previously. The wait outside was long (so if that's not your thing go early) but I was rewarded with some great food. I had the Elvis and it was marvelous. If I had more time I'd go again!

Second time there and enjoyed it. Of course they are known for their poutine which is yummy, yummy! Had a hot dog as well which was great. Its naughty food which you cant have all the time, however once in a while its ok to spoil yourself. ;)

My spouse and I both ordered the vegan poutine, and were both disappointed. My poutine had loads of sauce and not a lot of cheese (which turned out to be a blessing), and my spouse's was drydrydry and caked with cheese. Some consistency would have been nice. The vegan cheese is (or tastes identical to) Daiya. I guess I shouldn't... More
