Pleasant Surprise

Located this out of the way restaurant through trip advisor and we are glad we did. The poutine was great! No. It was outstanding!! Very casual atmosphere with no flash, but the food makes up for it!! It is certainly worth hunting this place down to try it out.

Really good putine. Great value and unless you're really hungry a small instead of the regular is enough to keep you going until dinner. Location is a bit of and the restaurant looks like nothing but a must when passing Canmore.

This was a very small restaurant, but the good was very good. The Montreal Smoke Meat Sandwich is a must try. Also their different poutines are very tasty. Friendly service as well. Not good for big groups but definitely a must try.

Undeniably authentic, delicious poutine, with many possible variations. Though service was a little on the slow side, it was friendly and the wait was worth it. Portions were ample as were prices. This restaurant could have more of a Quebec personality given that the main feature and the owner seem to have migrated from that province. Some decorations and different... More

Been there many times. Service is often slower than desired, and the kitchen operation seems a little disorganized, but the food is always good. Greasy, delicious, exactly what I go there for.

The poutine here is simply amazing! The serving sizes are generous. A large serve will feed you twice. If you like spicy, I certainly recommend the Mexican. If you're a meat lover then ordering the meatlover is a no brainer! Could eat at this restaurant every day!!! I believe they are closed Monday and Tuesday.

Delicious, cheap poutine by the plateful, just the way it should be! Haven't tried the other menu options as I know you don't go to a Poutinerie to get a burger!

The best part is we bought my daughter a hot dog thinking its going to be something special, and well its maybe 1/3 the size you get from Costco with... More

As a french Canadian who was been living in Alberta for almost 40 years, I was pleased to finally be able to get some real poutine outside of Quebec! La Belle Patate is now a must stop anytime I am in the Canmore area. The food is great, the service is amazing. Everyone who works there is super friendly and... More
