I ate 3 times at the la belle patate since there is a new owner. Unfortunately the changed some of the recipes. My favorite was the Mexican but now it is totally different to the old one. I am very dissapointed about that and it is no longer my favorite place in Canmore.

This place was a nice lil' surprise!!! To be honest, I don't think the hubby and I would have tried it on our own, as we are new to Canada, new to Canmore, and new to Poutine...but we spent the day snowshoeing with some friends, and they RAVED about this place. After our all-day hike, they brought us here, recommended... More

The title says it all. We had the poutine and Montreal smoked meat sandwich. It was so yummy, that we are already talking about coming back. Delicious food...And super affordable, too!

I've been to la Belle Patate 3 times now and each time I cannot wait to go back. The poutine is amazing, even just the plain poutine is fabulous. Their smoked meat is excellent too. My kids don't really like poutine, (Crazy children) but the hamburger and a steamie hit the spot each time. I do not find their prices... More

Each year we're in town, we stop here for poutine. I rated this spot as average based on this last experience...perhaps poor would have been a better choice. 1) I ordered an Ian without mushrooms. You'd think I committed a crime. I could hear the guys talking amongst themselves...and commenting on how I didn't know what an Ian was and... More

Dear Queenlisab We are sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with us! Not wanting mushrooms on your Ian poutine or on anything its definitely not a crime!

We were recommended by my sisters friend to visit for the Poutine. My sister has lived in Canada for over 10 years and is a fan of Poutine, however it was the second time that I had tried it, the first not leaving me with a good impression. So I was not sure how my family and I would get... More

Visited from out of town, hit LBP like we have every previous trip. Ordered two Ians, brought them back to our hotel. One was as ordered (no mushrooms), the other was mysteriously missing its gravy. Poutine without gravy is not poutine. How does this kind of mistake happen?! Very disappointed.

The smoked meat reminded me of being in Montreal! Nice pickle too. And I had to get a Spruce Beer - I don't even really like them, but it brings back memories. My husband had the "Ian" poutine with bacon and onions and I don't know what else on it - he ate it all up so it must have... More

Amazing authentic classic Montreal deli food. Best poutine and steamed hot dogs ever! Great little restaurant in a beautiful environment. Worth the drive. Montreal memorabilia decorates this unique restaurant. Hope they open up in Calgary as well. If you are craving a real montreal smoked meat sandwich there in only one place to go and this is it. Very friendly... More
