Not just poutine!

If you love poutine, then this is your place! We've probably gained 10lbs from smoked meat sandwiches and poutine in the past couple of years. Always tasty!

Service is very business like but food is good. Gravy tasted a little well done but still really good meal today. Very busy with a slight wait but not bad.

Six of us on motorbikes headed up to Canmore yesterday. What better way to spend a beautiful Sunday in August? Arrived at La Belle Patate around 2:00. Expected it to be 'tourist' busy and it was but....an hour wait after placing our orders? In the end the food, especially the greasy fries, was definitely not worth the wait and the... More

This is a must stop every time I am around Canmore. I of course didn't check before I stopped on a trip to bc but I showed up on a Monday to find they are closed Monday and Tuesday - oh well I will give them there much deserved break. So on the way back from bc it was my... More

When you think poutine, it's simple. Fresh fries, hot gravy and squeaky cheese. La Belle Palate has all 3 of these, with a good mix of options to throw on top if you are into that sort of thing. Prices have escalated in the last little while (where hasn't this happened in Canmore ??), but it is still a healthy... More

Went there for lunch with my family. Was not impressed by the poutine. It was lacking flavor and depth. Curds were not melted enough and that gravy uhhg. Both my wife and I had "stomach issues" about 10 mins after. If you want sub par poutine and sick to your stomach, please go to this hole.

Our friends brought us to this place after a long hike in Lake Loiuse This place is amazing!!! Great food, because I have a sensitive stomach. We had Chicken sub and traditional poutine. The food did not bother my stomach at all. Great staff The place is pretty small but we were able to get a table for 4

OK, I lived in Montreal for 3 years and I KNOW Poutine. These folks are also from Montreal and they nailed it, excellent Poutine. Be sure to order EXTRA cheese! They have a ton of varieties so if you're in Canmore for a couple of days, try the classic then venture into something more exotic. The prices are very reasonable... More

While travelling in the area with a family member who has celiac disease, several reviews were found online, indicating this restaurant had gluten free options, and that the staff were very accommodating to those who have dietary restrictions. Please note, these reviews are old. There is nothing available GF. The service was so poor, when approaching the counter, and requesting... More

If you are looking for Great Poutine this is it, but just go for the poutine not the ambiance or service. It is located in the Industrial area of town. No big deal but we will take ours to go.
