This place is know to be the best place for eating poutine in Montreal and it's true. The waitresses were very friendly, the restaurant has a great choice of different poutines and the food was delicious.

Came here late one night. As tourists it felt good to be hanging out somewhere the locals go to. Nice vibe, casual and hip. Great service. My first time trying poutine and I can't say I have taken a liking to it, but I'm guessing it's spot on if that's the sort of thing you like! :)

So let's start with a disclaimer that I'm not a Huge fan of poutine. I'm also stuchie and pretentious. I also never add anything to served meals ex: salting my food at a restaurant, asking for steak sauce, Ew!! Also.... I hate ketchup. Additionally I am a purist. I only order steak medium rare, I judge people who overcook meat... More

We went to Le Banquise this past Tuesday night and it was packed. I saw this place on a travel channel show years ago with Andrew Zimmern and Nadia G. Boy are we glad we went here. We took the metro from our hotel, (which was very clean and easy to navigate by the way). It was a short 10... More

My wife and I were determined to find the best Poutine in Montreal. Our travels led us to La Banquise and we were not disappointed. I am partial to the original recipe poutine, I believe to truly judge the quality of the product you have to start with a baseline. La Banquise hit it out of the park. After you... More

Since it was my first time in Montreal, I took it upon myself to try poutine out with every meal. This place, by far, had the best poutine that I had on my trip. You can have poutine with avocado or gravy or chilli or meat or sausage or anything at all... It was great. Highly recommended to go if... More

We had read that this was the best poutine in Montreal. So about 2:30 p.m. on a Sunday during our visit we set out to try it. There was a line, which we expected. The people around us said it should be about 30 minutes. We decided to wait it out. And what a wait it was -- it seems... More

Yes, this small, loud, crowded restaurant is somewhat out of the way but it's all worth it once you dig into your delicious heaping plate of poutine!!! Normally we are traditionalists when it comes to poutine...just cheese curds & gravy however once we were told that this classic pick was as boring as ordering cheese pizza we decided to try... More

It was good poutine but its a busy place and they have a very small dining area. Be prepared to line up outside for a table.
