Reminds me of Quebec poutine. The people here know how to make great tasting poutine. Prepare to pay premium prices however, as great poutine in Canmore is a luxury. Will definitely visit again.

We stopped in hear after reading some reviews and I can tell you if you enjoy a smoked meat sandwich then you have to give this little restaurant a try. Towering sandwiches and home made fries make for a delicious combination. This place can get quite busy but I think it is worth the wait, if it is busy. We... More

Normally I like to talk about the food and nothing else but on this occasion I am going to mention the price. This place was expensive but in fairness so is everywhere in Canmore. Banff is even worse so don't drive up the road looking for a better deal. I dislike giving bad reviews but at the end of the... More

The best Quebec style food I have eaten outside of Quebec. The poutine was perfect . Ca vaut le déplacement.

Came across this place and really enjoyed the poutine and smoked meat sandwich! It was slightly more expensive than expected but I would still return.

Looking for some traditional Eastern Canadian food ... head to La Belle Patate. Hidden away in an industrial area of Canmore, (so you need to know where you're going). Decor is basic, over the counter service - but truly it's all about the poutine which comes ten different ways. The 'traditional' is always my favourite. The piled high Smoked Meat... More

We came here on our way back into Calgary from Banff. My friend was recommended this place so we thought to give it a try. So we tried two poutines, a hotdog and a sandwich. The classic and smoked meat poutine were wonderful. The fries were freshly fried and golden brown. The cheese curds were just melting. The gravy is... More

One of the best poutine's I have had! I have had poutine in Montreal and supposedly "the best in Ottawa "...does not even come close to LA Belle Patate ❤

Came here expecting a taste of true Quebec poutine and smoked meat. Both were somewhat disappointing. The cheese in the poutine was not exactly fresh (it had lost its squeak and chewyness). We were here on a Sunday evening and this place is closed on Monday-Tuesday. As we sat there eating, they ran out of curd cheese and were offering... More

I've been a supporter of this place since it opened. I still go there from time to time, but less frequently now. I order the Smoked meat poutine every time I go. Have never needed to try any other one...this was my go to. As of late, the menu has decreased in size, the opening hours are shorter, and the... More
