On our recent trip to Canmore we hit La Belle Patate for the second time. It was just as great as the first time we went (last summer). The staff were very friendly and the poutines were awesome! We will make a point to always stop from now on!

Great place, great food and great service. Lots of choices of poutine. iIf you like poutine or just fries, this is the place for you. The owner was wonderful and gave us suggestions, which was great for us as my husband will not eat anything out of the ordinary. We would definitely come here to eat again.

Very casual restaurant that does a lot of take out orders. FABULOUS poutine and incredibly tasty brisket sandwich. Found the prices to be a bit high but the food was worth it. Got lost trying to find the place as it is in an industrial bay across the bridge and on the other side of town. Also hours of service... More

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

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
