Not only they offered 20 or so different tasty "poutines" but also the young staff is kind, efficient and quick; so it is a good choice to eat this Canadian iconic dish in here. The poutines cost in between 10 and 15 euros, cheap for being Montreal, and water is offered for free. It is crowded with locals and we... More

As tourists, we couldn't leave Canada without trying the national specialty (or so we were told), which is of course, Poutine. And this place, we were told, is off the beaten path and offers authentic experience; so we went. And I can say, we were sold. Normally I don't even like fries, but the version with gravy and ground beef... More

When you're craving something evil, this is the place to go! I get my poutine fix here from a selection of 30 different types, ordering the large one with a nice cold beer, and taking a doggy bag because portions are ginormous. Service is fast and friendly, open 24h!

We went here basically because you have to. Made the stop on the way from old montreal to the airport. We ordered to regular size poutines to share. One was w pogo (cut up corn dogs) and one with smoked meat. The addition of smoked meat didn't do it for me but the corn dogs seemed to work. It is... More

I tried the Reggae, it was fantastic. I've been to poutine festivals and tried Phad thai, uber bacon and mexican poutines before, and though they weren't bad, they didn't add anything. Here it worked very well. The classic is also great. A long line at around 2:30pm on Saturday, but tasty!

I ate at Poutine La Banquise after a friend had recommended it and thought it was great! As a poutine lover, it was awesome to have such a unique variety. I also tried the burger which was equally as good. My only negative comment is the small space- they should definitely expand !

Let's be frank. Haute cuisine it is not. But it's one of Montreal's Poutine Temple. Open 24H and often full at 3AM when bars are closing. Poutine is French fries, gravy and curd cheese. La Banquise offers 20 variations.

A very popular place. Everybody I met recommended the La Banquise. They have different varieties of poutine. Even a regular size can be veryu very filling with all the meat and cheese! But definitely a must try place.

Montreal. There are so many places that serve poutine, so how do you decide which place to try? Well, this was on some list in an article I read and it sounded like this place was a good staple for poutine. It's open late, it's not pricey, and has a fun atmosphere. All of these things were true. It's a... More
