Poutine!

We always go here for poutine, which is yummy! The restaurant atmosphere has changed some lately, we do not enjoy the super loud hockey games (to the point you cannot talk with your friends or family over lunch). Don't sit close to the TV's if you don't like hockey noise!

Away from the bustle of downtown Canmore this is an excellent lunch spot for something different unless you are from Montreal. Friendly staff, Varied menu and none of the uppitieness you may find downtown.

Surprising location hidden away inside Canmore's industrial area, appeals strongly to locals and others seeking out genuine French-Canadian comfort food. Awesome poutine and memorable burgers in dozens of varieties, from the predictable old standards to the zany, outrageous and even brilliant. Family friendly. Counter service with lots of takeout. A handful of tables inside, but can be very noisy when... More

All the poutines of the rainbow. I got a smoked meat sandwich and shared a Mexican poutine with my partner. Had a small food coma afterwards. Did not regret.

Took my inlaws here who are from Montreal and they were very excited! The poutine is great and they loved that they had other authentic montreal food like steamers! Delectable treat!

Does not look like much from the outside. However they probably have the best burger for a great price I've ever had and their poutine selection is great and tastes AMAZING! If your passing through Canmore this should be on your stop list.

La Belle Patate can be very crowded at times, and is well loved in Canmore. That said, folks from Quebec and Eastern Ontario may be unaccustomed to the crispier nature of the fries here... we went three times, each time asking for the fries to be less crispy than the previous time and they were still more crunchy than we'd...
