This is by far the best poutine in the area. I do agree that it is expensive compared to typical poutines found in Quebec, but out here it is unmatched in terms of taste. In my opinion, traditional with extra cheese is the only way to go. I find other things in my poutine deter from the awesome cheese-gravy combination,... More

The poutine here is great and totally reminded me of the poutine I had while in Quebec. The cooks here are really friendly and I will be back!

Easy to see why this place is always so busy!! THE BEST POUTINE EVER!!!!!!! A huge variety of menu items. Fun staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Huge portions that don't break the bank. I've commuted from Calgary to Canmore just to have their poutine! And it's well worth the drive!

I've been searching for a good poutine in calgary, but I found one in the city of Canmore. The fries are amazing, the gravy was yummy, and the cheese was good, but there wasn't enough cheese. Next time I go back I'm going to pay for extra cheese curds. The steamies were good, coleslaw was good. Hamburger was just ok.... More

This restaurant can get really busy even after 1.30 pm in the afternoon. Burgers and poutines aren't cheap but they are GOOD. One of the best poutines I had so far, reminded me of Québec. The Medium poutine is huge so don't get a burger unless you are super hungry. Medium poutines goes for $8.90 and cheeseburger for $7. They... More

This is a must stop for us everytime we are in Canmore, the poutine is very delicious and one of the best outside of Quebec.

Although it was much busier this visit (the summer as opposed to the spring) the poutine was still amazing. The atmosphere is so down home. A little out of the way and tricky to find, but well worth the effort.

We thought it would be fun to check out La Belle Patate for lunch while in Canmore. We decided to get our meals to go. We ordered smoked meat sandwiches and medium classic poutine for 3 people. We enjoyed the food very much. The portions were so large that we still had leftovers for the next day. There are many... More

This place was tucked away but is definitely worth a try. It is a bit pricey but you're paying for the experience and if you stick to the specials it's not too bad. We had Poutines which was delicious with it's perfectly salty gravy and gooey cheese curds. We also tried a steamie which was good especially all dressed. The... More

We have been going here for years in Canmore. Prices are getting up there from where they started but still less expensive than most places to eat in Canmore and the poutine is AWESOME! I had the gluten-free traditional poutine with smoked meat, it was very good but as expected, salty. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone who likes... More
