Great for an after hours snack. Good poutine but not he best I’ve had. Try to eat it on your way back to the hotel. If you seal the box when you open it back at the hotel the fries will be soggy.

Great traditional poutine in a trendy setting. The staff was friendly and the food was deliceous. Luckily we shared 1 portion with 2 persons because it is so huge you can not finish it alone.

None of that chain restaurant crap here. Even though it's a chain, you get real Quebec cheese curds, a selection of flavours and sizes- the best

We visited the location on Carleton university campus. Staff wasn't very friendly, and rolled their eyes when we asked questions. Poutine Was ok but a bit too salty.
