My husband and I were in Canmore for our honeymoon, and hoped to find poutine even though it's more of an Eastern Canada specialty! La Belle Patate did not disappoint!! Heard one of the employees mention that the cheese curds are now even sourced from Quebec, to keep it as authentic as possible! The small Traditional was more than enough... More

Well we are huge Montreal Smoked Meat fans and have tried most if not all around Calgary and lately they're all gross. So after reading somewhere about this place we've been trying to make it out there for a month or so... First off the staff are fantastic!!! Very friendly and helpful about questions you may have on your first... More

We had the Original Poutine, which is fries with cheese curds & brown gravy...this dish is a must try for any tourist visiting Canada. Poutines are their "thing" kinda like what cheesesteaks are to Philly. So we checked that box on Day 1 of our visit. The Montreal smoked meat sandwich is what Americans call a Pastrami sandwich. We also... More

Fabulous hamburger and all kinds of poutine. The place is not somewhere that people normally walk around, yet it was crowded because of their delicious meal. Do not miss it!

ate here again yesterday and it was just as good as always - the curds and fries are gluten free so if Coeliac then you can bring your own gluten free gravy and enjoy the full experience. I had the one with onions, mushroom bacon and smoked meat - really really great food for a reasonable price Rob

O.M.G. my husband and I went here this afternoon for lunch and have nothing but good things to say about this place. The staff is incredibly friendly, the spruce beers were unique, the smoked meat and cheeseburger were delicious and the poutine was excellent! We shared the large- technically could have split the small- but who doesn't like extra fries,... More

I tried the traditional poutine, a hamburger and a water which came down to 20 bucks. The hamburger was 4 stars, the poutine definitely 5 stars! You can sit outside on some benches and enjoy the sun. The service was fast and friendly. They made me a big poutine though I ordered only the small one, couldn't finish it all.... More

Want some fabulous easy food - go here. There is something for everyone. Their Montreal smoked meat sandwich is exceptional and rivals the real thing in Montreal. Their steamies - all dressed hot dogs a must appetizer - they are small. Their poutines are outrageously wonderful. The place is a gem hidden away in the Canmore industrial area and worth... More

Go check out this delicious lil' spot for poutine, burgers and hot dogs! All were so good! Good prices, too. Well worth a visit or two when you're in Canmore.

As I am approaching 60 years of age, i realize how my food choices have changed over the years also based on doctor's recommendations. We were the oldest by far to be at this restaurant the other day. Majority of the customers were in their 20's to 40's. Understood as this establishment sold poutine as the main item on the... More
