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

We have been here quite a few times when we are passing through Canmore. The wait time is always long but it's worth it. Great hot dogs and poutine.

I don't usually post, but I just had to after eating at this unusual and delicious poutine tucked out of the way in an industrial zone in Canmore. Offering a variety of poutines, burgers, and smoked meat sandwiches, this place comes right out of Montreal. We had a steak, a smoked meat, and a veggie poutine...each was just perfect. The... More

After 4 years in Canada (Alberta), all my previous experiences of poutine were "meh, what is all the fuss about?". Two weeks ago an ex-Quebecer work colleague told me about "the best poutine west of Montreal" at La Belle. Visited there last weekend after a day hike, and yummy, finally I understand the hype about poutine. This stuff is awesome!... More

If you are visiting Canmore or passing through you have to try Poutine at La Belle Patate. It's ingredients are all fresh and the Poutine is amazing! Not too expensive and definitely worth trying. Hopefully I will come back soon!

A year ago they decided to change the gravy recipe so it is now no longer gluten free, I had found an old review where it said it was so daughter was a bit glum. They could however do fries with curds which was gluten free so she was happy bunny. I had the mixed meats and it was as... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Banff. I absolutely loved the food! It took a while to get our food, but the gent at the counter was very friendly and explained why. Three of seven ordered the meat lovers poutine and it takes longer to cook. Worth the wait is my opinion but of your in a... More

If you like poutine, this is worth a visit. Delicious fries, authentic sauce and delightful squeaky cheese curds. We went with the original, but we will definitely be back to sample one of the multiple variations. It ain't much for ambience, but there is plenty of Québécois and Montreal Canadiens memorabilia.
